I ate here in a group of six.

We had a meat plate and a vegan plate.

I can only comment on the vegan dishes, they were fantastic! The only one I wasn't too enthralled by was the green lentil dish.

My friends seemed to love the meat platter equally.

The range and selection here is great. The value is great.

A treat all round!

Five of us ended up here on Friday 9 September as the restaurant we had planned to go to was closed - turned out to be a blessing in disguise!

The service was friendly and welcoming despite us not having a booking and our waiter was happy to explain the dishes on the enticing menu. Everything was very different to anything any of us had experienced before but a complete delight - starters (from the fairly short selection) were soup and a spinach and homemade cheese dish with pitta breads, both of which got rave reviews but the main attraction were the delicious main courses. We opted for various dishes, all of which come on a huge silver tray covered in injeera pancakes as other reviewers have described, making this a great sociable eating experience with friends. The stews and other meat dishes were warming and so tasty, everyone was very satisfied.

All in all, three starters, five main courses, a bottle of wine, soft drink and two glasses of white came to £73 between five of us (not including service). A total bargain in a wonderfully unassuming restaurant serving up food with a real homely feel - highly recommended and can't wait to return!
