Quirky yes. Quality of food was excellent. Really tender lamb shank tagine. Even the pitta and humus, which is usually fairly mediocre in restaurants, was tasty and fresh. Mushroom starter was great. Atmosphere was good, we will go back. Service was a little slow probably...More

An excellent restaurant under the railway arches in Whitstable. Quite exciting to hear the trains overhead when you are eating. The food is tasty, and the service is excellent. Some of the restaurants in Whitstable get very busy but as this is bigger you might...More
