The food too so long to come and when it did come it wasn’t up to standard. Hummus was so creamy and watery did not enjoy it at all. The service was so bad as the waitress was only attending people who had a bigger group. Not happy, would never visit again

Venue it very pretty from the outside but quire run down inside. In need of a mini makeover for sure. Service was very poor and borerline rude. Could get waiters attention to order food and once we did order we then had the bill placed on our table and told to we need to leave as out time was up before we received our food. The venue was soo loud we couldnt hear each other across the table or hear the waiter. Doubt i will go back.

Extremely busy. No one to greet us at the door to let us sit down. One waitress/ barmaid on the floor. Lovely girl but workload too much for her on her own. Shisha queue not organised and full with no one organising the queue or saying what was happening. Food was nice. Ambiance poor.

The food took forever to arrive. It looks like they are extremely short staffed in the kitchen. There is no social distancing in the restaurant, all the tables are full and there is barely enough space for the waitresses to go between the tables.

It was good but didn’t feel safe as the tables were too closely placed. I think they need to space it out more.

I wouldn’t recommend it was freezing cold and the food was also all from frozen. We asked for a desert with a candle in it for my friends birthday and they bought us a frozen cake with no candle and didn’t even take the plastic lid off it. Really not a nice vibe at all.

Food needs some attention as it was rather salty for someone who likes salty foods ,The service was also poor. On the good side of things the ambience was one to thrive in and made it a pleasant place to eat. The value was also easy going on my wallet for the night out with the girls. Have a good day.

When we arrived there was no one in the front to even check Identification we noticed so many kids going upstairs to the shisha that we would have visited but that alone put us off,

The waitress was amazing as had her hands full multi task between people seating us and taking out orders from more than 20 people on different tables.

The main that arrived we ordered lamb and it was very sour so we had that returned. The manager kindly took it back and offered an alternative but by then we had already been put off.

The starter was good we had Wings and halumi cheese and a little chips.

We cut our visit short as it began to get a little annoying with a big family booking where the kids started running around and making noise.

The only way I would visit again Is if they have ppl at front checking I’d for the shisha and club and just to have the chief taste the food before serving.

The venue is nice to look and and the waitress on the day was welcoming and lovely.

la musique était très forte impossible de s'entendre parler , je trouve également que les tables était sérré du coup nous étions les un sur les autres. niveau service nous avons attendu longtemp avant que l'on vienne prendre nos commande tout en sachant que la partie restaurant était quasi vide . Nous avions découvert le mia lounge grace a babydriver qui est un influenceur français . Mais malheureusement nous avons été déçu.

Lovely food, great service and really nice shisha. Staff and manager were very attentive and the food was lovely. Shisha area was great but very busy so try to get there early if you can. Bar with alcoholic and non alcoholic options.

Unfortunately there were a couple of large parties celebrating birthdays, so service was not quite as attentive as we would have hoped, but food and ambiance was excellent and we would definately go back. Great for a pre or post film meal as its opposite the Odeon Swiss Cottage

Worst service ever. Waiter didnt let us put together two of the VERY small tables upstairs in the shisha lounge even though there was three of us. Secondly when we went downstairs to eat the waitress took almost 15mins to see us and she went to a table that came after us first! When we got up to leave she gave us dirty looks. Absolutely the worst place and I'm glad I didnt spend my money here. Awful!

I would give this place (-5) stars if Google would allow me. I read on their website that the chef had put thought and care into the menu and decided to give it a try. My friend wanted shisha so we ended up on the top floor/zoo. Several men were walking around putting coals on shisha pots, we tried to place an order with him. Which was a mistake. He wrote nothing down and forgot half the order! My friends food and main arrived before my drink! It turned out he had forgotten to place the order for my drink or main. So we waited. 20 more minutes before my first drink even arrived, it came after my rushed main which was meant to be a mussaka but was steeped in more oil than any other ingredient. The aubergine starter dip was very good with bread. Other than this one thing everything was terrible and the service was by far the worst thing I have ever experienced. I ordered another glass of wine, another 20 minutes later it still hadn't arrived. I asked a man walking hy with coal about my drink, he said it wasn't his job but he would find out where my drink was?? When it arrived, the guy said it wasn't his fault because it came from downstairs and they didnt bring it...the saga continued. Two of us were seated at a booth for four. They seated 4 more people next to us, eventually we had so little space, we just paid the bill and left. I always add service when it's not included in the bill. Today was so terrible, I felt like they owed me money! Never again!!!

Went for lunch special menu. Nothing special about the wrap but it was tasty enough and good value for £5.99 inc soft drink and chips. Waiter wasn't specially attentive or welcoming even though it was only us and another couple, he couldn't care if we were there or not. He wasn't really friendly but not unpleasant... So good enough for a cheap light lunch.

This restaurant couldnt handle the 5 tables booked in. They cared more about their deliveroo orders than they did the people who were seated. Rude waitress. And to top it off their was a hair mixed up in the rice.

I'm a local to the area and will never be attending this restaurant again!

We have eaten here on a number of occasions, twice just the two of us, and twice as a large family group. The food has always lived up to expectations and the service has been good. The decor and ambiance are very pleasant, and the pricing presents good value.
