    Absolutely incredible Syrian food: somewhere between Turkish and Moroccan. Highly recommend the falafel and chicken tagine. Food only came to £10 a head - incredibly good value! Good green tea too!

    Very tasty shawarma. Would recommend an ayran with it and a mix of baklava as desert.

    Down-to-earth atmosphere, fantastic Syrian food, large portions and very good value. Serve pretty good, cheap falafel wraps during the day - not as good as Mr. Falafel but less than half the price.

    Try the Maklooba, really good!

    Very slow and rude service. Don't order the stuffed courgette - it looks like a soup with gerkins and doesn't taste any better!

    Don't get the veggie tapas stuff, boring and bland. Juices are really tasty tho. Lemon and Mint :-)

    I had the shawarma chicken wrap. For only £3 it's an amazing place for good food.

    Mixed grill is a winner. Best kofte and lamb shish I've had outside Egypt. The baby chicken is super tasty and tender too.
