Stepping into the Mosque Kitchen does feel a bit like going into the canteen at school. Thankfully, however, the food on offer is a lot tastier. Grab your tray, plastic forks and knives and stand in a queue at the counter – the set-up here is basic but the prices are keen and there's a selection of vegetarian and meat curry options from chana masala to spicy chicken biryani. The dining space upstairs is spacious, so it's great for a quick bite to eat with a large group, or there's the option at the weekend to go for the £10 buffet downstairs with proper plates and cutlery. Here you can choose a drink, selection of starters including samosas and an array of rice, chicken and lamb main dishes (some signage on the dishes would be helpful though) and flatbread-style garlic or plain naan. There's not much of a sweet option at the buffet so if you want pudding, you'd be better popping upstairs where ice-cream and cakes are on offer.
