    The restaurant has the decor and ambience that brings to mind Iraqi dining culture. The a la carte menu was priced well within our modest budget - despite it being in upmarket Kensington.

    Excellent food & beautiful atmosphere. The service was very good, but a bit slow. Need more staff for peak hours.

    I've been here a few times now and I would suggest coming on a quiet time because the service really drops when it's busy. I took my whole family here on Eid and reserved a table for 6 people. Upon arriving we were told that our table was not ready and it could take another 30mins. After waiting that time we were offered to sit on 2 separate tables which wasn't great. Though the food (lamb shoulder and mixed kebab) was tasty it took almost an hour to come out which wasn't nice.

    We went for Iftar menu and there’s no water???? How come, Muslims break there fast with water and dates. The soup is spilled on the bowl and they didn’t clean it. There’s no option to choose from the menu as it’s limited options for the main course and is just the Iftar menu and cost 45£/person. Over all the food is delicious but I don’t like the force and limitations methods. If I had known what this would be, I would not have come.

    The food was excellent as usual, but we had an issue with one of the waitresses who were rude while clearing our table. She yanked the tablecloth from under our elbows and stacked the bowls on top of each other for removal.

    Really good food - but one main dish is enough for two!

    Well prepared food, though I think we probably didn't order some of their best items. The mixed meat grill and the yoghurt drink is highly recommended. The Masgouf was on our wish list, but we weren't aware it needed to be pre-ordered. Will certainly make another visit just for the fish :)
