Six of us had the set lunch at £7.95 for two courses. I had cheese in filo followed by lamb shish served with rice, salad and dips. Amazing value and excellent service by the waiters.

Started off well with shared starters - loved filo and feta parcels, salads and haloumi! Mains less so - shish kebabs dry and no dips. Supposed to be served with a salad but had to ask for one! Nice meeting place for large parties!
