It is always a very long wait for food, even for a peanut butter sandwich when the restaurant was empty at lunch, which came with hardly any peanut butter after 40 minutes. I think they have tried to do too much, they have no niche and try and make all types of food, the burrito was just kidney beans and... More

I am not a vegetarian, or vegan; however this place is amazing! Great prices and great, fresh food. The owners are really lovely and make you feel welcome. You will wait a while for your meal to be served but it's worth it! We were going for breakfast, lunch and dinner most days.

Menu is fantastic - lots of variety which is so refreshing as a travelling vegetarian! Jina and his staff are very helpful and friendly. Very good value also! Would absolutely recommend a visit here - try the home made bread and the falafels!

The sign says they don't do fast food and this is true on both fronts. The food is cooked for you and is very fresh, some herbs are even cut while you wait. So this brings me to the the length of time it takes to get your order. Be prepared to to wait, relax and enjoy the welcoming atmosphere... More

Stopped for a tea at the end of lunchtime, and though they normally don't serve tea then, Jina was obliging enough not only to make us tea, but met our request for Sri Lankan milk tea, which was delicious. Jina is also passionate about his food and the menu looked like a good mix of Western and Sri Lankan, though... More

Service is very bad, we got ants with one of our dishes, they had nothing on the menu, it is a bit expensive. Dish was okay but not very tasty. However they did use sprouts which was a pleasant surprise :) overall in my opinion not a good place.
