Welcome to Avi's Kantini

 

Welcome to Avi’s Kantini at The Bank. A bit Turkish, a bit psychedelic, a bit ‘wow that’s so good’. Eat solo or dine with a group. 

 

Dips, Pides, Pitas, Falafel, Meat, Fattoush. You’ll never go hangry again.

 

Inspired by flavours of The Middle East, Avi’s Kantini brings these tastes into the iconic pub setting. Pide and a pint? Nothing like it.

 

The fresh and aromatic flavours of Avi’s food and cocktail menus will have you coming back for seconds…or thirds…or fourths…ok we’ll stop. Check out the full menu, Banquet menus + book a table below!
