My family and  i went to the deverish for afternoon lunch on the 13th of February, when we entered initially it was quite quiet only a few other tables were taken. I think because it was quiet, people under estimated the place as it's off the main drag. I had the chicken burger with cheese which was lovely and i... More

Not only is the staff amazingly friendly... especially Naz (but everyone is great) but their cheesy chips and chicken burgers are just what I need after... More

Have walked past this place many times but never ventured in. We will certainly be back. Friendly and welcoming staff and food that was extremely tasty and excellent value for money. Turkish food served and presented very well

This is the classic place for a late night drunken snack for the university students. A family could go earlier in the night, but almost none do. The chips are decent, the pizza is bad, and the falafel is absolutely grim. It is ok if you are coming for a late night bite, but Empire is better. The service is... More

Typical kebab shop visit,when drunk at end of night. Kebabs were ok nothing special although there mixed kebab was good. Guys do there best to get you served quick and hassle free which is all good when starving.

I visit this restaurant fairly often as the food is pretty good. It has had a recent upgrade which is great. The food is very good value but there is one small problem with this restaurant and that is that they close their toilets at 8 pm as I found out on a recent visit. As they are open past... More

Hamburgers inedible. Nice people but quality of food awful. Most restaurants in are are closed but we wanted late night post golf food and this was the only place open. Sorry but would never go back. Four diners and we all agreed.
