Katsu curry stall: went there once, I didn't like the Katsu curry sauce which had chunks of vegetables in it. Would not go again. Burrito Van: I had vegetarian burrito, and would go again Paella Stall: nice flavoured food would go again.

What an amazing selection of food vendors. Every type of street food you could want. Spoilt for choice. Enjoyed a lovely curry and samosas. Absolutely brilliant.

Such a good variety of kitchen. Food is done on situ, fresh, tasty and quite generous. I chose Musaka . It was wonderful. Warm and filling. There is a problem of how to manage food with no chair... i solved it by asking a restaurant near by to buy the coke and sit there😊 they were kind and invited.

A busy street food market with plenty of choices - there's something for everyone here. The queues can be long at lunch time but service is pretty quick. Everything including Indian, Mexican, Thai, Turkish and British favourites; take children here too and be confident there will be something here that they'll love. Two thumbs up for the Two Brewers pub... More

You should definitely visit this market. It's got a variety of choices of food and quite delicious as well. Try the brownies at the end of the street! Oh, and go on an empty stomach!

This really is a market catering for the working lunch crowd. Lots of interesting choices at very good prices. Queues long at some stalls - but the do move fast. Best to go early or later to avoid the 1pm madness. Busier the better the weather. There is a nearby park area adjacent to the cemetery if you want somewhere... More

A wonder collection of stalls and vans serving street foods from around the world. Lately, I've been drawn to the Burrito Van -- I recommend the carnitas with guacamole. Hot sauce, of course. Where to eat? There's a pub just across from Waitrose that let's you bring your own food. Have Fun.

A little off the main road, it was a revelation when we found it. I went for a falafel sandwich, and regretfully had to leave behind so many other choices. Definitely will be a daily lunch destination.

Multicultural food available from well established vendors. Personally I like the Indian Thai Mexican English Turkish (I think you get the message) food. Great value too. Take your food and sit in the local park or on a bench in the Barbican. There's even a pub nearby that is happy for you to eat your food once you've bought their... More
