This was a very pleasant experience, not fancy but really tasty freshly made food and very friendly service. Don’t normally get to this area but would definitely go back for the food. Good vegetarian options.

First time at this popular local Middle Eastern style establishment. Very busy on a Friday night, suggest you book ahead. Food and service was very enjoyable. Parking in the area is very limited, suggest you use a taxi/Uber service.

no one in town beats their lamb schwarma on a plate. The choices of veg to go on it is great and all cooked to perfection. It's also the most expensive schwarma in town, but I suppose you pay for quality

Yes - they do as far as I know. I seem to remember we used them for our son's 21st. They set up their whole operation at our house - although this was a good few years ago.
