    The waiters were kind and helpful. The price of the open buffet Iftar was misleading as it didn't include the service charge and we were charged for the water as well. We ended up paying 47 pp not 38 as advertised. The food was average, there were no drinks and the desserts were below average.

    It was one of the best restaurant that I have attend in London with a very warm and lovely environment and wonderful stuff the food was one of the best along with the dessert and everything . If I will suggest something then I will consider adding some sort of drink or at least water to the buffet otherwise everything was good.

    Food was lovely. But the team working there were nothing but rude from the moment I walked in. Even though I had booked a table in advance, they weren’t ready for us. Started pulling things together. I had put in the special requests that this was an event and we had booked them for a reason. As content creators visiting to have brunch together and shoot some content for our galentines meet up. After moving me I was told by another member of the team I couldn’t have the new table. When I asked them to make their minds up they gave me the table. When it came to paying we were spoken to rudely. Had the bill shoved at me. Told utter nonsese on how to pay. Making me suspect some kind of dodgy stuff going on. I was so disappointed. We did not pay the service charge.

    I was surprised when I arrived. I asked for a large table because we were 6 people. I was told to wait for the table to be empty. When it was empty and our number was full, they told me the minimum value for this table was 250 pounds. Knowing that when I booked, I was making a note, and before arriving, I called and asked, and they told me that there was no reservation for a specific table. When you arrive, you can take any table, and after discussions, the employee told me that you can take the table, but for only one hour.

    I had an unpleasant experience at the restaurant, despite having made a prior booking and arriving on time. The staff was not forthcoming, and when asked about the bread options, we were not clearly informed that we would be charged for the breads. It is standard practice for bread to be included with dishes that require it, and we were taken aback when we received the bill of £19 for six breads. We informed the staff that we were not aware of the additional charge and did not order six breads. Subsequently, the bill was revised, and we were charged for just four breads. The food was slightly spicy.

    The service is slow from handling us the menu to give the machine to pay! I have to ask for the menu they were late to give us. The prices are high compared to the food quality Plus be aware if you order bread basket if they asked to have mix bread it means they will decide for you and add +4 orders of bread to your bill! And we were just two :)

    We made a reservation but due to tube cancellations some of us were late and they weren't going to give us the table unless we were all there, which I have never heard of anywhere else. This was before the courtesy 15m was up. I understand that the place is popular and busy but that somewhat defeats the point of a reservation. The food was fine for the price in that area but we didn't understand why the drinks were so expensive - £9 for a glass of juice?! The waiter was really nice but that's about it. The door was basically constantly open on a really cold day and they didn't let us sit at an empty table further inside (surely we could have been swapped with the other reservation?) which was a shame.

    We had to be in the area and looked for a restaurant nearby. My husband is Arabic and we've both eaten Middle Eastern food frequently. We were not impressed by the food. It's a beautiful looking restaurant and is popular with Arabic people, but my mother-in-law cooks much better food than this and I've had much tastier options in my local area in west London. The carrot juice was lovely and so was the falafel but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there again.

    Took my friend here who was visiting from overseas and really excited for the afternoon tea experience - unfortunately the waiters were incredibly rude and hostile, to a point where we wanted to leave. Not a place I’d recommend or visit again, the food was average and overpriced - there are far nicer places close by with great atmosphere and friendly staff.

    Amazing food, delicious desserts. Friendly staff, great location. The interior might be a bit off-putting for someone who doesn't normally go to places looking like they are from the Alice in Wonderland(soft colors, a lot of flowers). Imagine place designed by Dolores Umbridge, but with Molly Weasley preparing the food. Would recommend to anyone.
