The hardest thing for me was deciding what to get because everything sounded delicious! I decided on the Falafel Platter, which had 4 or 5 delicious crispy falafel balls, a generous serving of homemade hummus, a large fresh salad, and pita bread toasted with halloumi and tomato in it- delicious!! Fresh, not to heavy, and full of flavour; I was... More

I have been a great fan of Pedra Shwarma for almost two years now. I was first drawn in by the quirky interior and the peculiar drawings on the menu. I've kept coming back for the incredible food and the warm smiles of Dalal and her sisters, and have been made to feel as a friend. It has recently had... More

Was slightly concerned after reading reviews, and I have to agree, if you're looking for somewhere to get a quick meal, this is not the place. If you're looking for good food and a place to catch up with friends over an amazing meal, then this is the place! The service was good, and the delay was due to everything... More

One word: terrible. There were no other customers beside us two in the restaurant. It took 40 mins for the foods to arrive. Customer service was bad. One set of cutlery for two people, we finished half of the first dish when they finally brought out the second set of cutlery. The food was low-par, mediocre at best. The potion... More

What a wonderful find, the food is fabulous and the service is friendly and helpful. The food is made from scratch, no pre-made dishes here, which may mean that you have a little wait - but it is so worth it. It has become my new favourite mid week eating place.

We really wanted to enjoy this, as we all love middle eastern food! Not sure what else to say aside from we waited for a ridiculous amount of time for our food - we were there for two hours. When we got it it was completely covered in spice to the point where it was overpowering. No compensation was offered.... More

Great vegetarian options (I had the falafel with salad, cashew nuts and rice with yoghurt) which was absolutely huge. Delicious food but we did have to wait about an hour for it which could have been a bit of a hassle if you are in a hurry. Recommeded for filling, authentic food!

We love this place. The food is the greatest. Whenever we go away this is our first stop when we get home. The ladies who work there are so lovely and really accommodating of vegan, gluten free, dairy free, veggie diets. Order the babaganoush! But also the fatoosh and fatat hummus (mixing these together is excellent!!). They do take AGES... More

We were the only occupied table in the restaurant as a family of 4. We waited 55 min for 2 of the adult food to arrive. Waited another 15 min before we enquired about the kids meals. They completely forgot and advised it would be another 5 min. This could have been avoided if they had been more attentive. Seemed... More

Arrived pretty late and hungry - we waited about 45 minutes for our meals. The food was great- well cooked, wholesome and authentic. Service was very friendly maybe slighly chaotic but they explained they were short staffed.
