Other favorites include Haleem and Nihari!
If you are a fan of spicy food then this Uyghur restaurant will serve you just right. Try their Chicken Meefan which is like udon noodles in a spicy shredded chicken and celery sauced noodle dish.

The saffron lemon drop is among the best drinks here with a perfect balance of sweet and sour. Other favorite dishes are the Halal lamb tagines and the seafood pastilla. You have got to finish your Moroccan meal with the Moroccan mint tea served authentically as if you’re in Morocco!!
This is a takeaway eatery but their bowls and wraps are so delicious you will be coming back for more. Their falafel is crispy and not dry, with accompanying sauces equally delicious and complimenting them well.
