The appeal of this place is simple: all-you-can-eat buffet at an amazingly low price. Most all-you-can-eat buffets are as appetising as mouldy bread, but here it’s genuinely good if inevitably a little carb-heavy. Get the ace onion bhajis as soon as possible after they come out of the kitchen. Prepare yourself for some pretty intense anti-meat propaganda on the walls (‘Cancer danger in your fry-up!’), but applaud the restaurant for letting homeless people eat for free. And bring a couple of beers – there’s no alcohol license.
