Food: Guanabana Click for more info

Halal Caribbean and Latin food? Of course! The fact that we happened to be in the area at the time made picking this for dinner a no-brainier; and it turned out to be quite a good pick too.

Curried goat, fajitas, messy burgers and jerk chicken were all on the menu and between the six of us we managed to try quite a few dishes. The starters were slightly disappointing both in terms of size and taste, but the mains made up for that.

Service was a bit slow and sub-par - we had to get our glasses changed twice due to lipstick and various other stains. On the other hand a prayer mat was duly provided once I asked for space in which to pray. All restaurants get points for doing that.

At 14 quid a head (and we stuck to water) I would say Guanabana lacks the value for money I've seen elsewhere, but for the novelty or for those who want something different this place certainly hits the spot.
