This place took me straight back to my student days. In the 1970s, sometimes known as "the decade that taste forgot". We ate mezes - overcooked, underflavoured and lacking bite and indeed any kind of mouth appeal. Then stewed aubergines which were salty, cheesy and...More

I seem to write only negative reviews recently. Which is sad because I used to enjoy eating out. Either I am getting worse or vegetarian food is declining in quality. I had high hopes of this place because it is veggie, I only have good...More
