Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I'm not an avid reviewer, so to feel the need to write up feedback on this wonderful cafe is a very telling sign on just how special this place is. I came here with my partner for a quick lunch. We each ordered a meze...plate, served by a very friendly and smiling gentleman, and was told to wait upstairs for it to be brought up to us. The service was speedy, the waitress offered us water, to which she brought over a big glass bottle full. This food we were told is all made fresh daily, and you can tell. Every single part of this meal was delicious and left us feeling like we'd had a health kick, which was a lovely way to end a very wholesome weekend. We will most certainly be back, to try more of what they have to offer, and I will be throwing out recommendations left right and centre. Thank you Sunbirds. ❤️More

Always delicious, lovely tasty wraps with delicious chicken and lovely salads. They also have a great selection of chilled drinks. They are not open that often but when they are, it’s worth going

Highly recommend. Tasty food and friendly service. Great choice of veggie and vegan dishes too. Had the veggie mezze, coffee and fresh fruit juice of the day. Was impressed with the selection of food and drinks and the cakes looked lovely but I'll have to...save those for another time.More

There's a good reason this deli cafe consistently gets 5 stars: I've been eating here for years and the food is always freshly made, healthy, varied and delicious. Staff are welcoming and efficient, and eating in the food is piping hot, while their wonderful takeaway...mezes are our Friday staple meal, and we can't resist their baklava. Dogs are also welcomed, and mine enjoys the smells and the snacks. The cafe is unpretentious and no-one hurries you out, so I've often met up with friends. Sunbirds is so good that I've nominated them for this year's BBC Food and Farming Awards in the Best Streetfood, Takeaway and Small Eateries category - everyone who loves them should do the same, as it doesn't take long!More

The food here is quite simply delicious. It is so full of colour and flavour and very good value for money. My vegetarian meze platter today was out of this world! If you like mediterranean, arabic style food it’s a great choice There are plenty...of plant based dishes. They do do meat options too. They cater really well for vegans, vegetarians and gluten free people with no compromise on choice and taste. Such lovely people who run it too. It’s my favourite place to eat in the world!More
