Our new restaurant is housed in a ground floor corner of the Limestone clad Aga Khan Centre building, designed by world renowned, Pritzker prize-winning architect Fumihiko Maki. Our outside terrace faces the grassy meadow of Lewis Cubitt Walk and the hotly anticipated Persian-inspired Jellicoe Gardens due for completion in November 2020 by multi-award winning landscape architect Tom Stuart-Smith.

The food was amazing, great for lunch although and sharing, although I would suggest 2 dishes per person is enough (especially if going back to the office to avoid food coma!!), we ordered a bit too much and felt a bit guilty about the leftovers.

On a side note, the juices . and soft drinks were exceptionally good.

Warm friendly service, delicious food, dangerously delicious cocktails and great music. Stand out dishes were the dips, the beef Shish and house salad which was incredible. Looking forward to sampling the larger cuts of beef when we return.

The food at Arabica was delicious, a tapas style menu influenced by Middle Eastern cuisine(s). We ordered six or seven dishes between three people, two of us had desert and paid under £100 total. Would visit again.

I was really impressed by Arabica. The food was very tasty & authentic Mediterranean and that was the best Falafel I've had in a long time.! The staff were also lovely, and felt like they took extra special care of us.

Food and service was fantastic!
The restaurant has only been opened a week, so the team are still finding there feet which led to a little delay on a round of drinks, but we were warmly welcomed, looked after throughout the meal and loved the whole experience!
We’ll be back!

Food was very average and overpriced. As a person with a nut allergy, I looked at the menu online which shows plenty nut-options, however it turns out everything contains nuts as told to me by staff. I only tried a few dishes, however my friends order a few more and also said it was all very average. Would not recommend.

The food was absolutely delicious! However the amount of humous for the price was a little disappointing. Great atmosphere though and loved the open kitchen. Very trendy modern! I will be returning soon!

Food was outstanding. The barman was lovely. However, I booked a table and then we found we were seated at the bar. I explained I couldn’t sit. On the stools to eat a meal and I was told we couldn’t move as all the tables were booked. Weird as I had also booked. AND the restaurant was 99% empty. We insisted and were moved but the ‘fight’ left a bad taste....

Visited during first evening they were open - so there was a little delay but the team were really attentive. The food was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Also had some great cocktails and good wine too. The desserts were outstanding too! Would definitely return.
