Visited on a busy Saturday, enjoyed a meal for 4 for under £25, lamb souvlaki, meat meze, vegetarian meze, cheeseburger. Cheerful service, enjoyed sitting in the window seats and watching the world go by. Second visit - it won't be our last. Thanks

This appears to be a takeaway but actually has a cosy room upstairs where you can take a seat and have your food delivered once you have ordered at the counter. The batter on the fish is light and not at all oily and the...More
