We love this place. Beautiful clean restaurant. We always get friendly service and most important, very delicious Souvlaki! 😀

We were in a hurry for some quick cheap food for dinner and saw this place. We weren’t expecting too much as it looks a bit like a mall food court stall which I usually hate. I looked at the menu and was pleasantly surprised...More

Doesn't look like much from the outside (or inside) but the service and the food is outstanding. I enjoyed a grilled calamari salad; very tasty with fresh ingredients. I found the regular size to be quite large. Definitely worth a stop.

From outside Casbah looks very unassuming but once inside the aroma of delicious food sets the taste buds going. We both ordered a large meal each and really struggled to finish, but we weren't going to leave any behind. It was to good to waste....More

Great spot to grab takeaways hailing from the Med. Friendly staff, fresh and tasty food that may be a little adventurous for some...definitely worth it.

Very good food. We got two regular hot meals and a side of falafel. Was all very tasty but way too much food for two people. Was easy to order takeaway but they had plenty of seating at the restaurant.

Love stopping in for a meal. The meat is really good, as is the salads. Great idea if you want something healthy and filling

The decor & location are not great but it's great souvlaki and tangine at a reasonable price, and quick if your doing take away and it's still very pleasant for sit down
