I had a light lunch, I can't remember what I ordered but I know it was tasty and I enjoyed it. The waiter was attentive and friendly. There were only 4 patrons during the lunch time opening.

Went with 2 vegetarian friends and we’d a great meal: the usual falafel, hummus accompanied by more unusual smoked aubergine, freekah, roasted cauliflour. The food is really good. We’ve had both eat in and take out, with both being of similar quality.
