Numbers 65 and 67 were originally separate. By July 2012, number 65 was a pizza takeaway called Hot Pizza Planet photo. According to their website, this was previously known as Snappy Tomato Pizza, under the same management. Hot Pizza Planet closed down some time between July 2015 and December 2015.

As of December 2015, there was a sign on the frontage of number 65 suggesting it might be converting into a licensed restaurant or cafe, and by February 2016 signage for The Meze Lounge had appeared photo. This was a Mediterranean bar and restaurant owned by the same people as Playground, the bar next door at number 63. It also did takeaway and delivery, with online ordering via Deliveroo. It first opened in late April or early May 2016, but closed again shortly afterwards. It reopened in late July 2016 but was closed again by March 2017.

As of August 2005 number 67 was a Mauritian restaurant called Paradise Island. It later became Paradise Garden, and then Paradise. Paradise was a Persian/Iranian restaurant; we aren't sure what Paradise Garden was. As of August 2012 Paradise was closed photo, with signs in the window stating "opening soon / redecoration / under new management". By February 2013 it had reopened as Abshar photo, though in June 2013 it was still using plates with the Paradise Garden name on photo.

Some time between September 2016 and March 2017, Abshar expanded from number 67 into number 65 as well.

Existence last checked in March 2017.
