A resounding overall 8/10 (based on only 3 items only)
Falafel - 8/10 - heavy and sticky-ish - defintily seemed as though they had
used cooked chickpeas (but not to the detriment of the dish) - more like
burgers than real falafel. Wonderfully fresh tasting with good flavour.....
-1 for the fact that you would never know it was falafel if not told, -1 for
slight heavy handed use of fresh garlic chunks.

Tahini dressing - 9/10 - thick - with the appearance of being whipped and
fluffy - not liquid at all. Lovely balance of garlic and lemon juice -
neither dominant - both merely enhancing dish. Creamy and not bitter at all.
-1 cos there wasn't enough of it!

Mixed salad: - 9/10 - definitly freshly prepared THAT day, and not hours
ago. Juicy deep red flavourful tomatoes, kos lettuce (barely chopped, and
mostly inner lettuce used only), sliced baby cucumbers. In a very light
olive oil, vinegar dressing. Not overpowering.

Roast Potatoes - 6/10 - arrived with sprinkling of fried onions. Not
drneched in oil - but potatoes possibly would have been better cut,
traditinoally into qharters/halves, rather than roasted whole.

Ordered hummus which did not arrive (but we were billed for).

Friends lamb moussaka was "delicious", as was her chicken soup.
