Every couple of weeks I liked to treat myself to a lamb shawarma at lunchtime. They have always been of variable size and quality but sometimes they are delicious. I went in about a month ago and discovered they had risen in price by 18%, quite stiff I thought but sign of the times I suppose. What was even worse was the extraordinarily morose behaviour of the man that prepared the food. No eye contact was made as he dumped it on the counter and walked off which I assume meant our transaction was complete. When I sat down to eat it a few minutes later I found it was cold and did not contain any tabasco/hot sauce as I had requested. Really shoddy quality and service in a time when I would have thought food outlets would be glad of regular custom. I wont be going back.
