This is a very small place, only a few tables but we've still always been able to get seated. Food is the usual selection, really enjoy the shwarma. Only one thing: no bathroom on premises so you'd have to go across to the donut place or some other restaurant.

I have dropped in a number of times for a very tasty meal. Not a large operation, but excellent and varied food. The owners are always pleasant and helpful in selecting a new and different meal. Mmmmm. And they also have a presence at the Sunday Market at the Pier, which is also wonderful (In season).

We really like the BABA. Very reasonable take out and very tasty. They only complaint is that it can be too greasy at times.
