Great kebabs, lighting fast service and even a nice little nook to eat in. Only negative is the staff are not quite friendly and often distract by playing something noisy on their phone.

We really enjoyed our mixed iskenders (meat, salad, sauces on rice). They were already busy by 6.30pm on a Tuesday night, obviously with many loyal customers. Even though they were busy, the food came out really fast and was delicious.

I work nearby and sometimes get kebabs from this place for lunch / dinner. It's affordable and big enough for two people!
