Been coming for years. Falafel or shawarma in pita great lunches. The chalong plate is a must. Great for a break from the thai food.

We went here last week with some friends and the atmosphere and decor was good, if you went to the (Clean) toilets it could take a while - you'll have to discover for yourself. Sadly the food was OK, but really not much more than than. 5 of us ate, it was just over £50 which for Thailand is quite... More

We love to go to The Family. They have very good Falafel, Hummus, Thaine and an awesome aubergine salade. Try the Family Plate, it's a mix of everything they have :) And don't miss the meditation room, plenty of funny stuff to meditate on ! :)

It's sort of tucked away in Viset but perfect if you're headed to Chalong circle area for some grocery shopping, etc! Right by tesco and Makro as well. The food was really delicious. We got the Mediterranean platter for two and loved everything though I... More

Went there because of the good reviews. Didn't dissapoint. This place should be admitted some sort of a medal because of the huge and good menu! I took shawarma plate (chicken, pita, fries etc). The size of the portion was big enough and the taste was amazing. Fresh and really well seasoned. My wife took a falafel plate and same... More

You cannot fail to be delighted by this perfect restaurant. The owner Ovadi has created a Gem. The restaurant itself has a lovely ambience and welcomes you in. The decor is fascinating including Ovadi's references to his life. Staff are always obliging, receptive and efficient and Ovadi himself is a great character. I am amazed by the variety of dishes...
