We were looking for a snack and strolled into here. Couldn't believe the choice! Eventually settled on Vagabonds Wraps. These are made to order in front of you and are absolutely excellent! Also had ice cream from the dairy - again splendid. A variety of 'street food' that should cover all tastes and great to see independent operators. Well done... More

Very nice place to have a bite. Lots of variety, from sweets and oysters to dishes with vegetables or meat. Good prices for European standard.

We had a good lunch at the Market....spoilt for choice, it was hard to decide but we settled on the Tunisian stand. My husband had the beef schwarma and i had the falafel schwarma. Apparently the beef was great, but the falafel wasnt. It tasted old and like it had been fried in fish oil. Really was not great ufortunately.... More

We visited this place with friends from Holland and we had a marvellous time. So many food stalls and so many choices. Very affordable. We loved the sushi and the Indian food. Next time we will try something else. Great value for money.

Multiple varieties of cuisine are available — great service from multiple vendors tried. Can eat in or take away. Prices are very reasonable. A sure winner for all!
