We’re all about vibrant flavours, locally-sourced ingredients and homemade marinades and sauces. Watch our team of creative chefs make fresh flatbreads, from scratch, in our open theatre-style kitchen. We cook all of our breads on a robata grill, giving each kebab that lovely charcoal flavour.

We also offer a selection of tasty non-babs, meze dishes and desserts. Our drinks list includes freshly made iced teas and a variety of beers, wines and soft drinks. We have recently expanded and now offer an amazing choice of cocktails, from savoury to sweet and everything in between.

So, come hungry, pull up a chair and enjoy a kebab worth sitting down for.

At peak times tables will have a maximum sitting time for 1hr 30mins from the start of the booking time. The host inform you on arrival.

    Great place to eat if located towards the northern quarter. Good service, food and value for money. Easy to find. Enjoyed the drinks choice and the food was different, the flat breads firm and not soggy. A main course each and two sides to share was more than enough,.

    There was a laid back funky atmosphere. Staff were efficient. My pork kebab was tasty. We ordered from the Mezze menu and chose the sharing option, advertised as suitable for two (2 mezze choices and a dip to share). However, my kebab, was a few cubes of meat, onion and pepper, with no wrap or other carbohydrate. The babganoush was presented in a pretty way with pomegranate seeds and came with a few trinagles of deep fried wrap. I was really hungry afterwards. So I would recommend ordering from the main menu and not the mezze, or ordering quite a few meze dishes to be full.
