Food and drink
The hummus is made on the premises every day and forms the base of each main course. You choose the topping and side dishes at the counter and the food is brought over to you. Daily-changing specials that are spooned over the hummus range from logical roast vegetables and falafel salad, to surprising Thai green chicken curry and Chinese char siu (barbecue pork). Trust me – the outlandish ideas work well. I always save room for the malabi (milk pudding) with date honey.
A clean-lined room with blonde wood communal tables and splashes of red. Jokey signs, t-shirts and paper placemats keep the mood light.
Super-friendly, young and bright, just like most of the customers.
In the heart of Soho.
Main courses, which come in a choice of sizes, vary from £4.10-£7.70 and include bread; side salads are £3.20-£3.90. Prices are cheaper at weekday lunchtimes.
There’s another outlet near Holborn tube station, handy for the British museum, and one on Cheapside near St Paul's – see website for details.
