Tucked away off Rye Lane is the humble Kurdish restaurant Yada's. A charming and colourful space serving delicious authentic Kurdish delicacies such as chicken shawarma served with garlic lemon, kubba (rice patties stuffed with lamb and nuts) and giant flatbread, called Kalana, a type of Kurdish bread traditionally cooked on a huge, round hot plates. We love the authentic and unpretentious vibe of Yada. Expect real homemade Kurdish food inspired by the owners roots and heritage - he is originally from Southern Kurdistan, in Northern Iraq.
Opening hours: Midday-11pm Tues - Sunday
