Its huge, gourmet wraps have made the Magic Roll a favourite haunt with the locals, especially in the wee small hours.

The Venue
This popular takeaway joint is on the Triangle and is pretty insignificant to look at. From outside you will see a narrow, blue coloured shopfront headed by the distinctive Magic Roll logo.

The inside is exceptionally small with just a one table and three stools overlooking the street. There's a counter where all the scrumptious Magic Roll fillings are on display waiting for you to snap them up.

The People
This is not a sit-in eatery and the seating is only really for those waiting for their freshly made wraps. For that reason there’s little use commenting on any kind of atmosphere.

Pop in at lunch and you're likely to find a queue of three or four people eagerly anticipating their food. The staff here are pleasant staff and are happy to accommodate.

That said, the ambience inevitably takes on a rowdier and more impatient edge when streams of people flock to it after a night out – it opens late on many days of the week.

The Food
The deal with Magic Roll is that you get one exceptionally large flatbread, have it filled, topped up with salad and necessaries like cheese, humus and sauce, and then rolled and toasted.

All the ingredients are fresh and sourced from local suppliers. The variety on offer is huge and it’s a genuine struggle to choose between fillings as tempting as roast veg, halloumi, and rump steak – particularly when you are allowed to just keep opting for more extras!

To save the exasperation, they have come up with a handful of pretty awesome combinations. All are £4 for a medium, £5.50 for large in daytime/£4.50 medium, £6 large at night and the vegetarian options are slightly cheaper.

The Magic Club is stuffed with the chicken, smoked bacon, avocado and peppered mayo. Also worth a try is the jaadu khana which consists of chicken, haloumi, mango, chilli, coriander salsa and more.

Vegetarians have an equally good selection to choose from with cleverly thought-out fillings up for grabs, such as the Daisy Demuth which rolls up halloumi, tomato, spinach, roast butternut squash, mushrooms and lemon.

The flatbread itself is warm, soft and slightly crispy and the whole thing is so large that it would comfortably fill you up at dinner time, let alone lunch.

The Drink
Only cold drinks are sold here and the options are basic. Oranginas are 90p, a coke is 80p and there are a few juices in cartons. That’s pretty much the gist of it.

The Last Word
Magic Roll deserves its reputation as a good stop off for quick, cheap and flavoursome grub. It offers huge wraps jam-packed with gobsmackingly delicious fillings.
