This is a small place with limited seating. You order and pay at the counter and the service is fast and friendly! The food is delicious and freshly made. Nice for a quick lunch or you can order and take it with you.

Freshly made and very well made. The person on the till was very helpful in explaining the details before I ordered. Their Humus was even better than many restaurants in middle east . Garlic & chili paste further added the fun to felafel's. Highly recommended.
