food was great, our waitress was so helpful and attentive,
but had to wait 10min for our table even tough we had an 11.30 booking. and then 45 min for food.
55min to get food is not great with 2 small kids,.
The waitress was so helpful. and very apologetic, it wasnt her fault.

Great outdoor area. Made us feel safe. Service good. Food lovely but portions a bit small - the seafood stew could have done with a little more ‘stodge’, E.G. a potato, portion of rice, or couscous, or quinoa. Lovely dessert.

Great love for brunch and lovely atmosphere and service, I’m very happy I came here with my partner as it set the tone for the rest of our lovely day. Very clean and lovely layout and decor. I loved my food and so did my boyfriend, the only thing that would make it better is more variety of dishes for brunch or the option of a sharing dish where you get a little taste of it all.

We were disappointed with our experience on Saturday.
We had dinner there on 05.08.21 and had a wonderful experience but this was different on Saturday which was highly disappointing as we had invited a lady to celebrate her birthday.
Our dinners were brought to the table while we were still eating our starters. The fish stew was too salty. The waitress was going to check if there was any dessert suitable for me as I am gluten and dairy free but never came back.

Hi and thanks so much for visiting. We are sorry if you were left disappointed with your second visit. We should point out however that we do bring the food out as it is ready - the whole dining experience is based around a Middle East Mezze feast which means overlapping of courses can be part of that experience - the idea being that the table fills up with a variety of food. We hope you understand and we re very sorry if you encountered other service issues. Thanks again for visiting.

I am not sure if this is because of covid but, the weekend menu has barely anything available compared to the menu displayed online, there is also a mandatory “set meal” that is extremely overpriced for what you end up getting. I am no cheapskate but the food was genuinely not worth the price and you’d be better off going somewhere like the ivy for a similar price and way better food.

Thanks for visiting. We've a limited set menu at weekends- this is not unusual in restaurants and is made clear at the time of booking. The menu concept presents a wider variety of food to enjoy. The meal itself consists of 5 mezze elements & a choice of main course & dessert, followed by mint tea. We're sorry if you felt it was overpriced but we work hard to give good value & are confident we provide strong value given the variety of food and quality of same. We're sorry if we were not for you.
