It's a greasy spoon. It's the greasy spoon for the area. Offers take-away and eating in. Ideal when you're in need of food in the middle of the night, or when you just fancy some honest food to counter all the pseudy stuff in the area.


Standard greasy spoon fare: all-day (and all-night) breakfast, some main dishes, no puddings. All is quickly and well prepared. Probably not a good idea to come here if you're a vegetarian.


Excessively strong tea; also coffee, cocoa, etc.

Service and Ambience

The place gets very busy indeed at times; the main clients are taxi drivers (there are often two or three taxis pulled up outside) and market porters.


Small front room with plastic tables and chairs. That's it.
