Much praise already. For a falafel that wasn't fresh from the fryer, this was good -- fragrantly flavoured fava. Good but not outstanding kibbeh, nicely spiced. Couldn't find the ice cream, have to look more closely next time, but got away with a baklava triangle fille with a billowing cloud of cream and rose. Filo wasn't as drily articulated as I would have liked, but the cream, dotted with pistacchio more than compensated for it. Also got a tiny semolina cake that was great. Going back soon.

• Semiramis
A decent pistacchio ice cream, lots of coarsely ground pistacchio and a chewy texture to the ice cream.
