This is what you call a sandwich shop you will not eat for a week whe you hav finished it, friendly fast service and a fantastic lunch on the go.

First time had a toasted sandwich, second time had the prawn salad. This place is small, but they do a big take away business. Everybody loves this place I wish they had them back home in Mpls Mn

I was in the newly opened Duncairn branch of West and ordered the feta cheese, sun blushed tomatoes, cous cous, olives, croutons, red onion, pesto sandwich to take back to my office. Unfortunately the feta cheese was left out of the sandwich and there was very little, possibly no, pesto in the sandwich. Not complaining, just wanted to make you... More

Incredible place. I only recently discovered Wests but it has now become a regular lunchtime haunt for me. They have wonderful cheery friendly staff who make your visit a delight. Their sandwiches are generously filled, to a point that almost seems insane, and those fillings consist of the most delicious fresh ingredients. Genuinely can not fault this establishment.

I only discovered West yesterday (6/7/16) after seeing a girl in work eat some of their food. It's amazing. The salads are fresh and vibrant. All handmade to include/exclude what you want. Also serve sandwiches/wraps/paninis which all look delicious. If you fancy something tasty and fresh for your lunch pop in and try. You'll not regret it!

As I took the brief turn off from Royal Avenue to Castle Street, I started to question the standard of humans in the area. Whilst they did not behave as aggressively as they looked, the same cannot be said for the seagulls, I'm pretty sure one wanted a fair dig with me as it ate the remainder of a sausage... More

The food here was fantastic, West to me is a hidden gem in the city centre, the staff are so friendly and although the cafe was packed (as it should be) they seated us as quickly as possible, I don't visit belfast often but when I do its West every time

Have went many times with family and friends, staff are so friendly and perform to the same high standard as the food which is so fantastic and not just your typical cafe food. The vegetarian selection is very good and has so much flavour which is rare as most cafes don't take vegetarians into consideration, over all amazing place to... More

Tasty and reasonable. I always suggest sitting (wait if u have to) - the service is excellent even when bunged and it tastes better sitting in. My recommendation is the buffalo chicken wrap and the garlic chips. Quite a hefty lunch so don't plan a big dinner!

Usually I love this place, excellent sandwiches but their customer care could be improved - a lot! During the week I bought sandwiches and for the first (and only) time, some garlic chips. Was given the usually bag with all my purchases in it and I promptly put it in my rucksack in view of the staff. Got home to... More
