I have been coming to this establishment for years, and despite new ownership they have held up a always excellent consistency. Friendly and accommodating staff and owner, our waitress Asanda has only served us twice but knows our preferences and needs perfectly, along with always...being positive and very professional. The food is to die for, their eggs benedict is absolutely amazing and has been all these years, perfectly poached eggs, holidays not overwhelming but incredibly tasteful and the always fresh produce that comes with most meals, I honestly have had dreams of this item, and myself being a big gent have had my fair share of eggs benedicts. For lunch the lamb schwarma is absolutely mouth watering, lamb cooked to perfection, tatziki amazingly flavourful, and the hummus tastes straight out of israel. A absolute must if you are a foody, traveling through george or just plain hungry. We will be back again, and again, and again.More

Always good though was annoying when owners were walking between tables with a sign board looking for a place to hang it... Could have done this after hours. Staff friendly & attentive

Thank you for your review. There was a reason why we had to do it at that time because we had a photographer coming to take photos and this was the only time they could fit us in at short notice. We do apologize.

Phoned them this morning asking if I can order a falafel shawarma and if they are open. Shop has made the shawarma specially for me even though they are only opening on Wednesday. Shawarma was amazing and the falafel was to die for. It is...very difficult to find falafel made proper and I would recommend anyone to buy it here!!!More

We visited Laurens for a meeting. I had the falafel pita, it was tasteless...really lacked flavour. My friend built her own platter. The sweet potato fries are the frozen ones you buy... her side salad was tiny for the price... the after asking for tomato...sauce she received that lumo red artificial catering tomato sauce, which I feel should not be used in an establishment like Lauren's. The new chef there was very busy on the floor, I think he should be in the kitchen to make sure that these disasters dont come out of there again!More

Thank you for your review. Such a pity that you are spending your time in lock-down criticizing and writing bad reviews for restaurants that are closed during the Covid-19 crisis and who going through a rough time now. Perhaps you should spend your time trying...More
