Moktar's kitchen can be found in a small side street off a largely pedestrianised area on the edge of the town centre. There's limited parking (a problem in Merthyr Tydfil) nearby or a supermarket car park just beyond that. The cafe offers a very good breakfast although it took a short while to turn up as it was freshly cooked.... More

Only a little way off the Taff Trail which we were cycling and, whilst it perhaps looks a little tired from the outside once inside things improved greatly. Staff were very helpful and the food was served promptly even though they were quite busy. Food was voted a winner alround. Indeed, on the return leg from Cardiff, when two of... More

Visited today for the first time in a long time and we weren't disappointed. We had a roast and Hunter's chicken - both were home made and were delicious, with that something special you can only get from good homemade food.

Called in for a Sunday dinner before heading home to West Wales, got there a bit before they were ready, so the friendly staff said if we waited about 10 mins they would be ready to start service, and they said that we won't be disappointed. How true they were, we ordered two chicken dinners and was absolutely fantastic, Lovely... More

Friendly atmosphere and freshly prepared great tasting food, You can have a breakfast here for only £2.50, it is only a small seating area so would advise to either book or come early to secure a table.

Visited here for the first time. Really tasty Sunday lunch with plenty of vegetables and homemade gravy. There was also a good selection of homemade deserts which looked scrumptious. The staff were very friendly and welcoming I will be visiting again.
