This non-Kosher Jewish deli has been a Covent Garden fixture for more than 40 years. It was saved from redevelopment back in 2011 following some very vocal public outcry - a sign of the kind of esteem in which this place is held.
It's run by septuagenarian Gaby Elyahou - a man who claims to have brought falafel to London when he opened this eponymous venue back in 1971. Naturally, they feature prominently on a menu that covers most Middle Eastern staples, alongside bits and bobs from Greece and North Africa, too.
It's an unpretentious place, so expect plastic tables and chairs and a decor comprising mostly of theatre flyers. However, most people visit for the bagels, houmous, stews, grilled meats and falafel - but also to support a long-standing local favourite, too. Takeaway proves popular.
