Was very slow as they had too many tables outside and too many Deliveroo riders collecting food. Main course was 75 mins post ordering.
Food was amazing but service was disappointing.
lots of fun- staff were really lovely and accommodating- very reasonably priced and overall would definitely go again!
Great place. The food is very nice and the service is good. I will come back
We felt the food was over priced (especially the taster meze) for the amount and quality we got. Calamari wasn’t fresh and we sent it back.
Cold but nice and casual
Great people, great food, could do with some more heaters but plenty of rugs. Lovely evening!
Argan offers a lot of outdoor seating, which is a huge benefit as we gradually move out of lockdown. I was on a table of 4 and the service was a little slow, but appreciate that they had a large volume of tables to cover. The food was decent, however we're fairly certain that one of our dishes didn't arrive and the waiter (who told us he usually worked behind the bar) couldn't really confirm or deny whether what was on the plate was enough for one person or two. Either way, we enjoyed our meal, but did then have to query about the bill - we had quite a few items added that we hadn't ordered. The staff were very helpful and apologised for this happening, which we really appreciated.
Delicious food, generous portions and friendly staff. Lovely cafe culture ambiance! Could use some outdoor heaters (I dined in early spring!) but otherwise a great place for a nice evening. Highly recommend.
Amazing food and lovely staff
Really really beautiful fresh salads good wine list excellent value for money. I have eaten there many times always very enjoyable!
Great to be sitting out in a nice pedestrianised area, a sun trap, having delicious mezze, amazingly non rushed and friendly service! Just perfect for our first meal out since the relaxation of lockdown! I’ll definitely be back, even though I don’t work or live in the area! Thanks!
We had a lovely evening, food was fantastic and all the staff were super friendly
A cold evening and a shame no additional outdoor heaters. However, food was very good and service outstanding. The staff were cheerful, friendly, and made the evening a thoroughly enjoyable first night out after lockdown
Really delicious food and great service, would definitely return!
Ate outside due to covid. Food superb. We shared lots of small plates of food. I eat meat but plenty of Vege options too. Would recommend.
Yummy food, fantastic atmosphere and great service, great spot for our first night out of Lockdown! Thanks
We have been going to Argan for several years now and it is always a very satisfying experience. Good food, nice selection of mezze, very pleasant ambiance, very responsive service and you don't feel hassled. We went on Monday 12 April to celebrate the first day of lockdown easing. We were seated outside but were given some blankets which was very much appreciated. We could see that everybody was very helpful in accommodating people without reservation. We will return!
Great good, amazing and friendly staff
Food freshly made, it took some time but it was definitely worth it. Nice wine list. Informal service but very attentive. The place is little but feels authentic.
Will definitely go back again.
Brilliant friendly service by the waitress. Food was hearty and perfect for general dining.
Wonderful fish tagine and friendly staff! Will definitely be back.
Outdoor seating was great as street has lots of great ambience and food and service was excellent. Fantastic falafels!
Relaxed Date Night vibe with lots of tasty food options. Would definitely recommend 👍
It was raining and we were seated outside because of Covid rules. But the food and the service were very good
Lovely food, excellent value. COVID compliant will definitely go again!
Amazing food and atmosphere - it was busy but still at least a metre from the nearest next table. And ample walkway space. The staff were lovely but service was a bit slow as I think they were overwhelmed for how many customers there were. Three of them serving two sides of the restaurant wasn’t enough but they were very friendly and I wouldn’t hesitate to return.
Friendly staff. Really tasty food. Generous portions. Great value for money. Would go back again.
Very friendly staff and service. Attentive without being intrusive. Also very accomodating to our requests and requirements. Will definitely be going back again soon with friends.
Good food with great options. Friendly staff and lovely venue. Highly recommended
Food was ok, bread and dips really good!
We had a vegetarian sharing platter that was 16.95 each - not worth the money. Small portions and not great flavour.
Unfortunately, there was a child screaming throughout (literally constant with the family doing nothing to help) whilst this isn’t really the restaurants fault, it would be better to perhaps seat diners strategically when it isn’t busy as there are two rooms to this restaurant.
Another thing I noticed was that the tables were not even one metre apart - which not only meant it felt like I was having dinner with complete strangers, but also against COVID-19 guidelines (also no hand sanitizer and sticky dirty menus)- in stark contrast to Honest Burger and other establishments next door.
Nice place and service, delicious falafels!
Great attentive service, tasty food. Tables outside are great if the weathers on your side. Deserves to be busier!
Lovely meal and cocktails
Mixed feelings. The outside space is great as it's away from traffic. The waiters were friendly, but the waitress came across like having an attitude. We ordered a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, but it came and was a bit on the warm side. I asked for an ice bucket and got a wine cooler - not sure how the bottle was going to get colder by sitting in a metal tube that had room temp in the first place... Also not sure the wine actually was Sauvignon Blanc as the label said "Blanc". The set veg main course was bland. The meze starters were nice (Specially the falafel and the cheese pockets) , but were served without bread. Would I go again? Probably, to check if this time was a glitch.
Started with a baba ganoush which was as it should be deliciously smoky and served with warm flat bread. The mains were huge probably should have shared one and then they made some nice martinis that we had with some baklava. Staff were promt and friendly. The ambience and bathrooms were great.
The cold mezze was lovely. The sharing hot mezze platter was a bit small in portions but the potatoes were really good. The meat was delicious. All in all would recommend. And great service.
I’ve been to this restaurant several times and have always enjoyed eating there. This time during the coronavirus, I felt that the strict measures of preventing the transmission of the virus were not upheld. Cutlery and glasses were left on the table. I wasn’t sure if they had all been sanitised.
One of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at! Calamari, sambousek lamb, and pastilla chicken was outstanding!
Great food at reasonable prices - one of the few left on the high street that do not overcharge!
