Time Out Says

If you’re the kind of person that thinks restaurants with grab-and-go shawarma hatches are questionable, think again. The food at this age-old restaurant is consistent – a good reason we at TOAD continually come back for more. It gets all the basics of Lebanese food right and the falafel are up there with the best in the city. Automatic has two locations just opposite one another – one with a small outdoor terrace for when the city enjoys cooler climes. Both offer seating upstairs for families and downstairs for gents. It gets super busy late at night, though, and on occasions such as these the faults in the service begin to appear. Staff are not the quickest, although that cannot be said for the guy who wraps up the shawarmas – he’s pretty fast. But overall, staff are attentive and do their best to remain knowledgeable and welcoming, regardless of how busy the eatery gets.
