Summary

“Still there, still serving excellent food” – this “cheap ’n’ cheerful”, Islington canteen has seen many of its neighbours come and go. The secret of its success? – a very affordable limited selection of yummy curries. “Easier for take-away than for sit-down as the place is tiny with slightly harassed staff”.

Summary

“A great little local standby” for a “quick bite” – this Afghan canteen by Islington Green scores well for consistency and value with its “small selection” of simple dishes. The only quibble is that “the menu is static”“but you know what you’re getting every time”.
