They’ve got lots of positive reviews on their social media accounts; mainly for their instaworthy menu items and tendency for generous toppings. Their halal-certified yogurt is just super fresh and creamy without being overly sweet or sour (some of us still think yoghurt is supposed to be overly sour…)Choose your own crazy toppings (LIKE COOKIE TOPPING)
