'I came to England five years ago to finish my Masters in international business economics which I did at Westminster University,' says Mohammed. 'I worked in hotels to keep myself going but it had always been my dream to have my own business.
'I came to Golborne Road because there's already an established Arabic community here and because this particular premises became available - it was perfect for my family and me and we also live here.
