Felt compelled to share this little gem (despite me being quite selfish when it comes to food finds). This unassuming little place on Parkway in Camden does an excellent Lebanese buffet. Usually I hate buffets (that mess on a plate where nothing really workds together), but if you work around Camden and want a good lunch then check this place out.

Todays lunch consisted of:

Soft and giving fried aubergine
Crisp and well spiced falafel
Chunky tzatziki
Chickpeas with roasted garlic puree
Zingy Cracked wheat and yoghurt
Succulent Baby Okra in tomato
Rice and Lentils mixed with nutty browned onions
Lamb and Artichoke Stew
Deep fried Cauliflower
Green beans in tomato
A decent Houmous

There were quite a few other dishes and salads on offer. Everything was well seasoned and had enough depth of spices to keep the palate enthused despite it looking a bit of a mess (I got take away and squished it all in a box!). The food is not the best Lebanese you'll ever taste but it makes a cracking lunch and all for the jaw dropping price of £3.95. That's a good deal in a city where they are hard to come by. Recommended.
