Consistently brilliant. Old faves or new entries on the menu always interesting; thoughtfully prepared, well presented and, most importantly, taste great - they do really well at combining unusual flavours, often heavily influenced (I think) by North African and Levantine cuisine. Staff super friendly and attentive, in the right amounts. Plus, they can mix a solid cocktail. It’s my go - to.

We arrived just after 1pm and ordered the seasonal mulled wine, Sadly we were told it wasnt hot enough yet !!! Really, We suggested heating it in a pan but that was not going to happen. We ordered the Shwarma The meat was a little dry for my taste. The service was OK

The food was amazing, would definitely come again.

This was such a pleasant surprise, the halloumi was exceptional, and the food overall is incredibly well presented, its tasty, its local, its vibrant. My second favorite dish was the spicy lentils! Great service and kind service.
