Nice place and good food. A bit more expensive that it should but still ok. Very loud for brunch. Nice staff.

The food was amazing and great value for money so would definitely return. The service was also really fast and attentive. However the place is quite noisy which ruins the ambiance slightly and drinks were quite expensive.

Good food. On the rich/complex side of things but tasty nonetheless.

Almost perfect but one of our party had a salad which was sadly drenched in dressing. Otherwise we really enjoyed the evening.

Food was incredible.
Service was excellent.
Coffee was delicious.
Started off loud in there but it was very busy at that point and quieted down after 20 mins or so.
Will be visiting again and recommending to everyone.

The food was fabulous, the service good and a lovely ambience for a Monday evening when it’s expected to be quiet but was quite busy. If I had a complaint it would be regarding glasses as I personally like wine in a wine glass and gin in a gin glass but it was tumblers for all - just my personal preference though. We all loved the menu and will definitely be back.

The food was really flavorful and interesting, but stick to mezze. Mains are less good. Service was charming and the place has a good vibe.

Food was wonderful and I think I would go as far Tod ya I had the best lamb kofte of my life, our waiter was great and helpful with recommendations etc, I loved the low lighting, my only issue was it felt too cramped and I don’t dining like that, but I do understand it’s a popular London restaurant and these can be cramped. I would definitely recommend paying them a visit!!

My family and I had a lovely Sunday brunch. The ambiance was just what we needed for our catch up. We had a discreet corner table with lovely views out the back and across the restaurant. The egg dishes and coffee were superb. I’m looking forward to coming back next time I’m in London to try the rest of the menu.

Had a hoot... lovely fresh ceviche with a good chilli heat. The range of pisco sours was great, nice desserts, the staff were fun and a nice coffee blend to finish.

Loved it - great food; excellent yet relaxed service; quiet enough to chat but still with a “buzz”.

This is a great restaurant in the Spitalfields Market / Shoreditch area. They serve original, Middle East inspired dishes that can be easily shared between guests. The service we received was excellent. The only criticism would be that the seafood dish with prawns and whitebait was tasty, but maybe a little expensive for its size. The cocktails are original and good, for example the Lost in translation cocktail.

The food was amazing as ever but the noise level was off the charts. Struggled to have a conversation. The service wasn’t great either. Our waitress simply didn’t seem to care about us, we had to ask multiple times for stuff, practically beg to be served and have the table cleared. It’s a real shame as the food there is also incredible but that really impacted our experience.

Excellent service and the food was amazing. I was late for my booking but they held the table and we weren't moved on for another booking after us.

This is a lovely restaurant with such an interesting array of foods. The ambience is great and lovely staff. However, whilst all the food was tasty it all arrived either warm or on the cold side. When I go to a restaurant I do like my food to be hot. The food here has the feel that it had been sat around in the kitchen after it had been fried until it was delivered to us. It’s such a shame they couldn’t serve hot freshly cooked food to us. Unless the concept of the restaurant is warm’ish food. I won’t be returning but did enjoy the lovely flavours. We all commented that it was nice but the food could have been warmer

Delicious food, and great wine list. The people are super friendly and provide good service. It can get quite loud but if you want a lively place to go out this is it. Super for vegetarians!!!

Great restaurant, food is delicious, service is great. My only quibble is it's very noisy - music is too loud and energetic. This restaurant would benefit from having no music as it's small and compact and can get quite noisy when crowded. Food speaks for itself and would enjoy more without the background distraction of noise

The portions were extremely small, the food was also tasteless. It was a massive disappointment and quiet frankly not worth the money I paid. I wouldn’t not eat there again.
