This place is amazing! Me and my partner come here regular as the food is beautiful and so cheap! We always order the large mixed mezze between us and that is plenty for the 2 of us and cost just over £9!! The staff are really friendly and it is spotlessly clean! Bread is also amazing. They don't serve alcohol but the juices and smoothies are lush! They don't accept cards either so make sure you bring cash :)

Went for a night out with friend, who suggested we give it a try after reading a few good reviews. We started with the fresh orange juice (amazing) and and a hummus shawarma which had quite a strong after taste.
Ordered the chicken steak, great portion size but well over cooked and difficult to enjoy!!!
The aubergine sauce we ordered was bland and tomatoey.
The layout of the place is warm and friendly but another downside is that the waiters don't seem to communicate very well in English.

Dear Jessica
Thank you for all your comment, we are trying to bring to Cardiff the traditional middle eastern dishes as they are served in the middle east without losing the integrity of the dish some of these dishes might be unfamiliar to your taste, we have taken your comments on board and we added an extra kick to our Aubergine sauce and the Hummus Shawerma suite all tastes, I hope you can comeback and let us know what you think of the new dishes.
Many thanks for your contributions.

Dear value customer
Thank you for taken the time to write your review, we are always sourcing the best quality steaks in the market, your opinion is very important to us its only can make us better hence the new steak supplier ''Douglas Willis'' is one of the best in the market and the quality seems to be constant I hope you will come back and try to give us another chance, thank you again for your custom.
