    My favourite London falafel shop. Worth the extra for the Moroccan bread, and know you can mix and match fillings. Fail to abide by the queuing system at your peril.

    Delicious falafel wraps, best in the area. This guy has a seriously good memory, you have to see him in action!

    Unbeatable value for money on Leather Lane. Big and rich falafel wraps for £3.25, also tasty and veggie samosas for 95p. All hail the king!

    Surprised at the comments here. Fairly bland falafel. Much prefer the stall in Petticoat lane.

    In addition to falafel, they now also sell pies, cakes and buffet style dishes (rice, beans, potatoes etc).

    Try as I might, I can't avoid eating one of these beauties everyday. Faves are a falafel / veg bhaji mix in Lebanese or a kofte / falafel mix in Lebanese. Taste sensation and great value.

    Super-nice people working in this totally odd shop. The falafels are top notch though so the odd interior only adds to the appeal...

    He told me today that he was the first falafel man on leather lane, since 1991! ... and the queue is still trailing out the door!
