All dishes are freshly prepared daily in the restaurant kitchen using the finest seasonal produce and, of course, spices and herbs from our Middle East heartland.

Started off outside and they do have heaters but got a bit too windy so we loved inside and they were more than happy to accommodate. I think some staff are more friendly than others.

Food was great, started off with hot and cold Mezze and the falafel are fantastic! Mains took a while to come so we think we were forgotten about but it did not disappoint. Couple suggestions though, there were for of us and we each had a plate of rice. Dare I say it was too much and they could have brought 2 to share. It always varies with people especially as we had eaten Mezze before but worth having the option to provide a smaller portion and people can always ask for more. The shish taouk portion was perfect and tasted great. Think we could have done with more garlic sauce for the table but not a big problem.

We were given some baklava and tea for the delay and this was appreciated by all. I hope I can return soon.

I have booka a table in advance, arrivef slightly early and was lead to my table only in less than a minute asked to be moved as right next to be was the toilets door and it smelled so bad and the toilet is attached to the kitchen serving bar?!
We wanted to leave immediately but my friend convinced me we should give the food a chance, we ordered the Humus with Shawarma and Labene , pastry filled with mince and got it with 4 smaill pitta bread.
The humus with Shawarma was no more than ok and way overpriced (meze portion for the price of £9),
The Labene tasted like it was taken from a box ( i am certain!) , the pastries were tasteless and again overpriced and the pittas were not home made and tasted like they were heated in the microwave.
Overall, we were so disappointed we decided to have our drinks acroos the square in All Bar One which was the highlight of the evening!!
Don’t fall for the good reviews, I don’t believe they are sincere.

Interior of restaurant was lovely with a nice cosy atmosphere and service was great. However food was underwhelming. Ordered the lamb shwarma and it was incredibly dry and the only sauce they gave was ketchup. For the pricing, food was lacking.

My son picked this restaurant from the list of places we googled as the menu options stood out for him. He thoroughly enjoyed the taste of different food from a place he’s never been before. Service was professional and also smart and very polite.

We loved the food so much on our first visit we couldnt wait to go again. I stupidly ordered a wrong dish during the 2nd visit but the Manager, who happened to overhear my conversation with my family when the food arrived, brought us the correct dish immediately and free of charge plus two additional drinks for my children and he left the wrong dish with us too which we ate anyway as it was really good! The staff couldnt have been more friendly, helpful and polite and the food is absolutely wonderful. We cant wait to go back.

Booking process was easy, got a confirmation by email from the manager and a call reminder as well on the day. The atmosphere was great, I loved the Ramadan decorations and Iftar menu. Staff was welcoming (both reception staff and waiters). Our waiter was attentive and did a great job (I believe it was Mohammad?).

It was a warm summer evening and this was one of the outdoor dining areas we thought of around the area so why not. I instantly felt a little annoyed when I saw that my name was spelt wrong on the reservation list, then the waitress proceeded in taking me indoor when I have specially requested outdoor seatings. She gestured at a 4-people table after while putting down 4 menus and looked surprised when I pointed out that there were two of us only. The lunch menus were then placed in front of us despite it being the evening and the waiter has asked his manager to speak to us when we requested the a la carte menu and there was a lot of murmuring after among the waiters and waitresses while they looked at us which made us very uncomfortable. Food eventually arrived and it was disappointing. Overall, the general atmosphere has make me want to leave before food was ordered. I will not be returning to the restaurant nor recommending this to anyone. Your money will be worth more elsewhere.

Visiting London and wanted something near the hotel for a decent meal. It was decent, but much like visiting Times Sq in NYC- meh food in a busy tourist location with nice decor and high prices. I was glad for the experience but wouldn’t return.

Excellent food, attentive and knowledgeable staff, very pleasant ambiance (though not sure about the TV though we could not see it from our seats so did not bother us). A little pricey but it is on Leicester Square and only five minute walk from theatre/cinema venues. 'Vegetarian' menu is actually Vegan so worth scanning the main menu for vegetarian dishes too.
Very enjoyable start to the evening. Would definitely go again.

Slightly expensive,my sister ordered a barcardi&coke but they brought her a coke zero which my sister pointed out she dont drink and unbelievably they only sold diet or zero coke. To be fair to the resurant though the waitress did go out and buy some coke cola but then charging £4. The staff were very attentive and the resturant was cosy+clean but expensive but I suppose it was in Leicester square

First the good stuff - Surprisingly good find for Leicester Square. Food was very good & huge portions. Would have not been too unhappy to pay full price so the 50% deal was very welcome.

However... not so good was the feeling the Opentable deal was a bit of a sham. We arrived & explained we had the OpenTable 50% off food deal. They presented us with short menus & said to choose 3 courses from it. I explained terms of the deal i.e. 50% off a la carte & minimum 2 courses. Waitresses & Waiters seemed a little confused but meal went without further hitch. Then the bill turned up & no sign of the 50% deduction. To be fair they thenapplied the reduction to most of the food bill (but their calculations were still off) , plus a strange percentage added for the service charge which didn't make sense pre or post offer deduction.

I got the feeling you need to watch out or you'll come out feeling a bit cheated, but I would try again.

Lively place, good food and close to Leicester Square underground and attractions. Noted the comment about getting a cold blast from a door, we also experienced this so pick your table carefully. They also forgot to apply the 50% off food offer to our bill, we had to point this out, so check your bill !!

really average food which you would normally pay for no more than £10 for a main meal but because of the touristy location, really pricey for what it is and the whole thing doesn't feel authentic. The lady who served us was lovely but that was the main highlight. If you need a quick bite to eat pre-theatre then it's ok but wouldn't recommend for other occasions.
