Danielle Pink said: "If you're looking for good food then I highly recommend Chef X . I opted for the kebab meat and chips which were probably the best I've ever had.

"The kebab meat had a nice kick to it and was so thick and juicy. The coleslaw was just plain yummy and the gulam jamon tea was a nice bit of sweet to finish it off."

Firas Hussain said: "If you’re looking for innovative food, this is your place. As a big fan of grilled chicken, I decided to try the chicken smash mix burger.

"It was bursting with flavours and the mixed beef complemented the flavour of the chicken. Definitely my go-to meal. Highly recommend the golden chai also as they use fresh ingredients and not processed ingredients."

Sufine Hussain added: "I never anticipated encountering such a great-tasting diner in Coventry. However, my recent visit left me pleasantly surprised. Amazing smash burgers, friendly staff, and great service. A little hidden gem in Coventry. Worth a try."
