“Yummy lunch”
Reviewed 12 March 2014 via mobile

Ordered a platter with lovely hummus , falafel, dips and pita, for two. Delicious and would have been enough got our daughter to share. She ordered a small chicken kebab , which she could not finish, so we took that away. Then she tucked into our platter , she enjoyed sharing it with us. Relaxing cafe, nice people.and the black currant chia drink was locally made too.

“I never miss lunch here”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

I live in Nelson part time and this is the first lunch spot I come to when I'm home. The ingredients are consistently fresh, the sauces well seasoned and the portions generous. It is everything one would want in a Kebab cafe. If you come at peak time, service can be a bit slow. They at least have great reading material handy. Enjoy!

“OMG! Excellent Falafel - Worth a visit”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

This place deserves all the raves; we had lunch here one day last week. I had the Falafel Kebab - small; huge portion and so very tasty...packed with stuff. Hubby had the Chicken Kebab, again very tasty indeed.
Small place, very busy, great staff. Well worth the stop!

“Excellent, healthy and tasty lunch!”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

We had the "antipasto platter" -- really more a mezze -- a combination of many salads, really crisp falafel, and tasty dips. Really good
