Awful restaurant. First of all a booking for 7 people outside were put on a table of 4, after half an hour and us asking again to get another table as 7 people could not eat around the table they found another table to attach to ours. The female waitresses were lovely, This restaurant takes your order then takes your payment which we had done throughout the night... when we ordered a round we were brought the drinks then this rude small “manager” came along and said to the waitress “why are you serving this table, we need the table back for another booking”. They proceeded to take the drinks away.

Suddenly the small rude manager stated we had a bill to pay of £80. We stated we had paid at every point through the night, over £300 between us. The rude small manager then proceeded to tell us that we were not to leave and that they were calling the Police. The Police arrive and immediately the small rude manager told the Police that we had not paid and that the reason we were leaving was that he decided we had too much to drink, trying to entice the Police to think we didn’t know what was going on.

Luckily the Police could see that that was untrue and that members of the group were sober and that I myself had not drank at all. Suddenly when the waitress who was serving us confirmed what we were saying in front of the Police, the bill was reduced to £40. We apologised to the Police on behalf of the restaurant for wasting their time, on what was a busy night in Soho. The rude small “manager” who was highly aggressive was a real Pinocchio when it came to him trying to ham his story up to the Police. I genuinely hope this was the restaurant too busy to understand what was paid and not a scam tactic they try on people they think “have had too much” and wouldn’t notice/could get the Police involved.

The Police understood they were busy and may have got it wrong. We paid a reduced price to end wasting any more Police time, hopefully it can be spent on anger management

Incredible experience- my first time at a Mediterranean restaurant and I couldn’t have asked for anything more! Not only was the food fresh, flavourful, and tasty, the ambiance was also well thought out (in line w Covid precautions and safe against UK weather), and the service was beyond unbelievable. Special shout-out to our amazing server, Cham, who went above and beyond in making sure our experience was unforgettable. She displayed such a friendly and knowledgable impression and guided us through the best ways to enjoy our first time with Mediterranean cuisine. Would absolutely come back for not just the food, but also the 5 star service from Cham and rest of the staff!

The food was cooked to the perfect texture, as usually grilled meat sometimes gets dried up but the chefs here know what they’re doing. Decently priced for the proportion of food you get and the service is excellent. The waiters are very helpful and actually recommended my main and I could say I was more than satisfied. They make sure that everything is going well and they checked up on us which shows we weren’t forgotten. The food arrived on time and so did the drinks so I would say it’s convenient if you’re stopping by and need to grab something filling on the way.

The amount of food you get for the price is genuinely quite appalling. Even tho being aware of the price level in Soho, this is the worst I've experienced in a long time. It also seemed as if the waiters were desperate for us to leave and taking our drinks before we were even finished. However, the ambience and vibe was pretty cosy. Overall quite disappointing sadly.

Food and service great. Only had an issue with the last Gin and Tonic you served. Once we said the drink was not right, definitely flat and no tonic, it was replaced immediately to be fair. But with another Gin and Tonic which was equally flat and definitely not tonic. It tasted like Gin and water. I know it was crazy busy and you had already told us you had run out baklava and brandy so we would have understood that you had run out of tonic too. Never assume that someone will not notice that they are not getting what they ordered.

Overall very poor food quality. Falafel were over fried to the point there were black. We ordered a portion of fries which came with ketchup : asked for mustard but told ketchup was the only sauce they had available. Spent £43 in 2 for a very poor meal: 2 falafel plates - about 5 falafel with tiny salad and very little hummus- 1x small plate of fries-which were over burned, 2x glasses of tonic water on tap, 2x small peroni bottle. Felt it was overpriced considering the food quality and portion was very poor. Only good point was the location, as right in soho. I advise them To improve the quality of the food as was quite poor. We understand you increase the prices as are trying to make up for the loss of the lockdown but people are not stupid!

Went with a group of 6, had fun. Lamb chops were delicious. The only advice would be for the waiters to be a bit more thorough when taking the orders, the staff gave me the impression they did not know what to do with themselves and forgot a few items we ordered. Apart from that, would definitely recommend

When we arrived they didn’t have a table for us and threw two random tables together that were different sizes. It meant half the table was covered and half was exposed. They are overbooking at the moment

The food is tasty and well seasoned, however portions are a little small for the price you pay for a meal.
Our food was accidentally placed on the wrong table and the team dealt with this issue professionally
The outdoor seating area had heaters which is great for dining outdoors.

Very good service but too many people packed together. Trying to get in and out to bathroom meant asking others to stand up from eating their meals. The idea of being outside was to feel safer but it felt claustrophobic and too close to others. We were joined to another guests table

Great food in one of my favourite neighbourhoods in London. Having said that, though I do understand the current circumstances, the waiters were rushing us to eat and empty our tables with the first chance they had, even though we were supposed to have the booking for at least a good 90 mins. I'm here to enjoy good company and meet friends, not just eat in a rush and go!

Really enjoyed the meal and the experience overall.
Service was a bit all over the place although the lady serving is was excellent.
Food took a while but that suited us as we didn't have a later booking for drinks anywhere.
When or main came out they accidentally gave out to the table behind us but they replaced it quite quickly.
All in all, they are very very busy so some mistakes are totally understandable.
Would go again :)
