A long weekend and it's the Monday and not much is open. This place is also a takeaway but sitting down with your kebab is an option. They are delicious. The staff are very friendly and we enjoyed our meal very much

Quick, great value and very tasty. Right in the heart of Nelson, easy stop while you stroll along Bridge st. We had the chicken and falafel kebab and liked it very much.
