The chefs are filthy wearing jeans and sports trainers. I got diarrhea in the middle of the night from eating the kebab earlier in the evening. Will not be visiting this establishment ever again.
I patronised this restaurant with 4 of my colleagues recently where we proceeded to order our meals. We waited for a total of 40 minutes for our meals to arrive - which for the most part was severely charred. We received no apology for the wait. We ate our meals and were then brought our bill. We decided to pay cash with a £10 remainder to be paid by my card. The waitress mis-heard the amount and entered £7 on the handheld machine by mistake. Instead of just correcting the mistake she insisted that I had told her £7 and began what can only be described as a brutish rant at me to the point where she mumbled the word "Stupid" under her breath and refused to hand me the handheld machine for me to input my pin and slammed it on the table instead. In disbelief having collected my card and my receipt I left the premises along with my colleagues, not before informing the remaining staff that I would never ever return to this establishment again. I would advise you all to do the same. A rabid dog should be treated with more respect than was afforded to me and thus I recommend you take heed and stay well away.
Good kebabs and good value for money. Not sure where the reviewer who says it's overpriced usually eats, but you won't find much cheaper in Hackney, and you won't find any cheaper that offer the same quality.
They have customer toilets next to their kitchen in the basement. Accidentally entered their kitchen when going to the toilet. Disgusted by the view of extremely dirty kitchen and staff whose clothes are regular sport. They do not wear any headwear or apron or chef jacked. I do not recommend to anyone to eat in that restaurant.
Ate there Saturday night, was busy but nice atmosphere. Food was jamazing - best halloumi I've tasted! Would definitely recommend it.
