    Excellent food and service. Eating hummus here reminded me of the Shouk in Israel.

    Food here is always delicious, no matter what new dishes we try. We force ourselves not to order what we had last time even though it is always great to make sure we don't miss out on some other delight!

    Booking was a very pleasant experience. The chef and owner is a cheerful patient person. The food was excellent. We have sampled lots of Mediterranean food and this was very good. The ambience could be improved by thinking the music volume and a more patient waiter. But I would certainly go again.

    Delicious food served by very pleasant staff. We had the lamb cutlets and they were superb! We also had chicken humus shawarma and it was just as good!
