We ordered carry out from Banzo and got the F-Bomb, as well as the beef kebab, both on pita bread. It only took about 10-15 minutes and the food was very, very good. Both my husband and I have had the opportunity to enjoy kebabs...More

I'm a vegetarian and when my brother and sister in law told us about this place I was very excited to go. The food was very good. We got the cauliflower tempura as an appetizer and that was the best fried cauliflower I've ever had!...More

My son took me and my wife here for lunch! Excellent food, great service! My son said that this was only falafel worth eating without actually traveling to the Middle East. Make sure you order the chicken shawarma. And Turkish coffee!

a small place off the beaten track, not easy to find but lots of parking. Limited menu with quite tasty options and variations. We visit regularly now.
