Cheap, good food. Slow service.

My partner and I came here for dinner on a Friday evening and the place was really busy. Good thing most people were just getting takeaway so we had no problem finding a table.
We ordered a falafel and a kibba platters to share. Both were excellent and can be made vegan upon request. I was disgusted by the complimentary pita bread though, not so much because it was some commercial one that came out of a plastic bag, but because it was served all cold and stale. Totally vile. Mind you, this is coming from a person who very rarely refuses bread. The service also left much to be desired. It was so slow. First, the guy behind the counter, who I guess was the owner, assembling plates and making wraps from different trays of food in front of him, was slow. Then there were these two girls working there buzzing around the whole place doing everything from cleaning up and taking orders to preparing food and running the register. It was completely disorganized. When we walked up to one of them to pay, she told us she couldn't do it because she wasn't the one that took our order and didn't know which bill was ours. So we waited for the "right" waitress, who took our money and went right back to making wraps without washing her hands. We didn't get sick after, but I wouldn't be surprised if somebody did seeing how they do things there.
I would recommend this place only for its food and prices. The meal cost us less than €20 including a drink and a beer. Just avoid the busy hours or do takeaway.
great food, good value
slow, disorganized service, awful bread
