Review: I just knew I was going to like this place the second I got up the stairs. It's a pretty big space with seating mainly on the floor on cushions. Nice and chilled. Very busy at night and you may have to wait for a table and possibly share one. The falafel platter is fantastic and huge. Interestingly the Babagounish had mayo in it, so I asked for it without and they threw on a couple of extra falafels. The dips were good, the small accompanying salad was welcome and the pita light and fluffy. The real stars were the falafels themselves. You won't be hungry after this! On our first visit, we shared a table with a couple who had literally just returned from trekking. They were both around average weight and quite fit..... I've NEVER seen two people consume so much food. They each had a pasta, shared a falafel platter and had a salad and fries. The portions are all really large and they got through it. I was looking at the bowls of pasta lovingly and almost asked for a mouthful. After trekking for 10 days, I can now understand how much they need food and could empathise with their depleted bodies. The menu is extensive and varied. Breakfast sounded good but we didn't make it there too early. On subsequent visits we stuck to the falafel platter as it was just that good. I tried a salad once, think it was called the Californian. Little disappointed and it sounded better on the menu than it tasted. This place is always busy and is a thriving business. Sure you will enjoy it :)
