To start with the positives, the restaurant is beautifully done out and service was efficient and friendly without ever being intrusive. The houmous I had as a starter was fantastic. Unfortunately it went downhill from there - the salmon I had for my main was overcooked and came coated in a very odd tasting sauce (it was supposed to be... More

The service was very warm and friendly and this was the high point. Food was average on the whole and in some cases for our group of six a disappointment. Portions are large. Good choices available and fair pricing but probably not on my list of places in Brighton where I'm hankering for a return visit.

Really enjoyed this little restaurant tucked away in kemp town. The service was really good and the food came quickly and tasted lovely. Had the Chicken with roasted Walnut as a main meal, highly recommend it!

We were staying fairly near to this restaurant and based on the other reviews we thought we would give it a try. We phoned ahead to book a table as it was my wife's birthday the following day 13 July. We arrived and were warmly welcomed by a lovely lady called Zelal. She showed us our table and it was... More

We got dragged in by the amazingly delicious smells coming from that little restaurant on our first night in Brighton. Not a single moment have we regretted our decision since the whole experience was perfect from the moment we stepped in. We got super friendly and amazing service by the owner who also helped us chose from the menu that... More

The restaurant has a lovely Ambience's. It is small and cosy. The Menu's good. The food is excellent and the staff are very attentive but not intrusive. It is nice on the first floor; if you wanted a little bit more privacy. The toilet is very smart and clean.
