    Excellent dinner. Vegetable curry and couscous for me and peri-peri chicken for my wife. We both loved it. Super helpful and friendly service too. Thanks!

    Service was incredible, very kid friendly place. However, it just felt extremely loud due to lot of chatter [ and not music] which made it hard to have a conversation. But loved the food-their green shakhshuka lives up to the hype.

    A lot of people hype up this restaurant. Overall I’d say it’s a 3/5. Service is great and ambiance is nice but the food is ok. Could be better. I got the Jacks Breakfast which consisted of a skirt steak, eggs and potatoes. I asked medium rare for the steak. It was well done when I received it. The steak was also bland

    Lovely dinner; excellent food & service. Staff is friendly & attentive and the food never disappoints. Delicious drinks too; if a bit small for the price. If they could figure out how to bottle the green sauce to last, I would buy it as gifts! We'll def go again & again.

    We went as a family to have dinner.Theside of duck bacon was very good and the chicken meatballs and spaghetti were pretty good. The breakfast bowl was okay as well as the zucchini chips. However, the peri peri chicken was a big disappointment- too spicy and too dry. Not a place I would ever recommend.Service was good,too.

    The food wasn't as good as the last time I went, the shakshuka was soupy and the eggs were undercooked, it came lukewarm. The zucchini chips were incredible though and the sauce that came with them was delicious. Our waiter was very kind.

    Ethan, our server, was exceptional. A complete rockstar all the way around, whatever you pay him - it’s not enough. The food was excellent. I’ve never had anything like the African sponge cake. I’ll be coming back for that an embarrassing amount of times I already know it.

    The food shines here. The shaksuka was delish and be sure to add avocado. Try the rosewater waffles too. Busy, bustling restaurant so glad we went early. Small and quaint on a great street. Be sure to make reservations as it gets crowded.

    Great spot for brunch, delicious food. From the outside it may look like it’s a little bit too small (like they had to squeeze tables and chairs) but once you’re inside it’s not a problem at all. Recommended

    Sunday recovery brunch... DONE! Really enjoyed our meal here. Service was attentive and smiling and generally in good spirits. Casual atmosphere. Tasty Hair-o-the-dog drinks (Pimm's Cup and Cantaloupe mimosa) and scrumptious takes on breakfast and brunch. Grilled Halloumi with grapes was a good way to start. I had the Green Shakshuka - which was lean, but delicious (JWF - maybe add something for a bit more dynamic mouth experience). My wife had the tasty and filling Duck Bacon, Egg and Cheese Sandwich with tomato jam - very good! When in NYC next time, we'll be back!
