This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
Friendly and speedy service, and a lunch menu deal of two courses for £7 (three for £10) make Kurdish and Middle Eastern Nawroz a popular choice among the student population, who pop in for a hearty kebab or shawarma after lectures. It’s spacious and modern, with sleek black tables, low lighting and huge windows perfect for people watching. The menu features the usual starter suspects including hummus, baba ganoush and falafel, followed by a long selection of grilled meats. The mahshy kebab – minced lamb with garlic, onion, tomato, green chilli and aubergine, served with rice or salad and naan bread – is herby and tasty. There are also some appealing vegetarian dishes: the tapsi, a stew of aubergines, tomatoes and potatoes, is rich and oily, although comes with disappointingly greasy rice. Finish up with a baklava selection or an ice-cream. No alcohol is served, but you can bring your own bottle and there’s no corkage charge.
