Some decent reviews led me to this place, but it didn't live up to them. The friendly service was the only plus point, but as you should expect nothing less, it's hardly a commendation. Basically, the food is fairly good; it's just twice the price that it should be, for the quality. That's what it is - good, not very... More

We took our time studying the menu whilst the waiter brought us water and eventually placed our order along with wine we'd chosen to compliment our choices. A few minutes later the waiter returned to tell me that... More

Especially if you are a seafoodlover, do not miss this experience. We were quitelucky to enjoy the service of Mostafa, extremely helpful and courteous. Will definitely go again. Do not miss the deserts either. And worth every penny.

Neighborhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
