We sat on the high chairs near the serving bar. A little noisy and too much movement for my taste. Food is pretty good but nothing exceptional - and a little pricey for what it is. Plates also quite small - even though there are three sizes.

Absolutely delicious food and great service, would highly recommend. The duck main course and the cheesecake dessert were a particular favourite. Also great value at around £50pp with a glass of wine.

We had a booking at 6pm which was a great time as it was busy but still manageable. We had a great table with a lovely view over Granary Square. The food is fantastic and unusual. A little more explanation on the menu would have been helpful but our waiter was super friendly and helpful in explaining everything.

Great food.... our waiter was a little off hand although he explained the food well. We found it hard to talk as the music was too loud. Really enjoyed ourselves and have recommended it to everyone!
I did ask for a table overlooking the river but wasn’t given one.

The food is innovative but incredibly tasty. Staff are fun and efficient. We prefer the counter or
Higher seating rather than the tables at the far end

Everything was great, food was out of this world! It’s a fusion of Middle Eastern tastes from across the Middle East!

All good, amazing dinner. I’m not giving 5 stars because I prefer raw food/dishes. All was amazing but too many sauces. We were in 4 and apart from me, all my friends gave 5 stars. Super recommended!

The food was heavily dependant on yoghurt as the prime ingredient a d although it was tasty it wasn't enough to sustain a whole menu . I thought the wine was eye wateringly expensive.

Beautiful and inventive food, combining Middle Eastern and European flavours and tradition. Hectic kitchen and music - it's a noisy, clubby kind vibe. Bread and desserts were incredible. Excellent vegetarian options and really good wine and cocktails

Highly original and exciting food in a contemporary setting full of beautiful design details. The open kitchen adds a great atmosphere and the menu is fascinating and a food adventure - of the best kind! Great staff and excellent service all round.

It's a great venue: the food is fantastic and I have now eaten there for brunch, lunch and dinner. BUT the noise level is way above "energetic" and in my opinion soars to pretty nigh unbearable, especially at weekends when there are kids. The problem is the acoustics: a low ceiling means the noise bounces off the ceiling and back again. So be prepared to shout when you can't hear your friends/lovers — and of course, that makes it worse. Otherwise it's pretty near perfect, great menu, well served and a lot of charm on display.

Food and ambience was great. Most members of staff were friendly but could be more attentive with clearing of used cutleries and making space as the square tables have limited space for the copious amounts we ordered.

I was really underwhelmed. Having been excited to come. Our table wasn’t ready when we got there, the ambiance was more night club than classy restaurant and the food overpriced.

I’d suggest trying to pack less folk in and turn the music down to encourage your local patrons to return.
