I went to Ayoush the other night with a friend for some late night hookah and drinks, after seeing it earlier in the week while at Patty & Bun. The biggest standout was the service, everyone there was eager to help, friendly and respectful. The drinks were very good and the hookah smoked great.

I booked a table for me and my fiancee on his birthday. The food was absolutely delicious, the staff was very friendly and professional, prompt service and good atmosphere. The the best part of the night was the surprise cake that I had ordered for him and which was delivered to the restaurant. They made sure the cake is properly... More

Happened to have dinner at the restaurant last night. The taste was really authentic even though i was not able to choose from the whole list of dishes as they were not available. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was great. Rather pricy but i guess you can expect this given the location.

I was organising a surprise hen do for my friend and was looking for a restaurant with a private area but most were asking for a huge deposit or a really expensive minimum spend. I had previously been to Ayoush restaurant 6 years ago and remembered that there were private caved areas so emailed to enquire about prices. I was... More

Happened to walk past here on a weekday evening on our way to a restaurant. Changed our minds and sat outside here instead. Attentive staff, tasty shisha, authentic mint tea and a delicious mezze made this a great evening.

We had a lovely dinner on a quiet Monday night, so it wasnt too crowded and we had very attentive and kind waiters. They helped us choosing a very good bottle of white wine which was quite aromatic and went so well with the food. We had a lamb tangine with a huge, tender piece of lamb on the bone... More

I went already several times to Ayoush either for smoking shisha outside or for lunch and dinner inside. However I always liked the atmosphere and sitting outside and see the rush of the city. The food is quite good and the mint tea smells gorgeous. The service is very good and after 2 or 3 visits they know you already... More

We have been to this restaurant several times and it has been great, the last time 20 months ago, but this time it was not as good. The lady who served us was very nice but served us moldy pitta breads, when we pointed this out we received an apology and told it had never happened before. No discount or... More

Came to Ayoush with a friend for a dinner tempted by the website and the busy exterior of shisha smokers. However the food totally disappointed us. Bland, tasteless starter! Never been to a restaurant when chef refuses to use salt in his cooking! Tasted as bad as school dinner. Mentioned it to the manager who apologised profusely and ensured me... More
