Falafel-filled pittas are the star at this global vegetarian fast-food chain. White or wholemeal pockets, crammed with crunchy falafel, are handed to customers, who can then top them off with a choice of garnishes from the buffet. And what a feast for the eyes this salad bar is: from pickles and olives to bulghur wheat salad, shredded red cabbage and a huge selection of sauces – it’s easy to overfill your pitta. Meal deals come with a side of thick Belgian fries, always perfectly cooked, and to drink we’d recommend the tangy own-made mint lemonade. Maoz is mostly used as a low-budget take-away joint, but there are a few cramped tables that look out on to Old Compton Street. An ideal place for a cheap but flilling lunch, or a post-pub grub stop.
