We came here as a small group. We ate only vegetarian food, and it was delicious! A variety of mezze including dips, salads and pastries. The service was excellent- quick but you didn't feel rushed, and very friendly. Would recommend to everyone.

This restaurant was recommended by the place where we were staying (Cumberland Arms) and did not disappoint. Food was tasty and plenty of it. It is BYO so had to go to Morrisons (5 mins walk away) for some boozle. The most surprising thing was that it was so warm we were able to sit outside and enjoy the last... More

When it first opened Albaik was a lovely little byob place, unfortunately this is no longer the case. We booked a table for 7.30 got in alright but were crammed on to a little table. Inside was boiling as its only a small place with an open kitchen and no AC. We ordered the food which came reasonably quickly. While... More

We booked a table for 8.30pm on a Saturday night and knew it would be busy. We waited around 10 minutes for a table and when we were shown to a table we were sat on a long table with other people sat very close by! From the second we sat down it just felt utterly chaotic, and the waiters... More

We were invited by friends to go to this restaurant ages ago but never got round to it however on Saturday night we finally made it. We had booked for 6.30 which was just as well as the place was full with a queue at the door. Always a good sign I think. We had no idea what to expect... More

Visited with friends pre booked (recommended) very busy but seated straight away with choice of dining inside or outside. Sat outside we brought our own drinks but had a fresh jug of water brought to the table. We all went for the £15 banquet. Great choice if you cant decide what to order. Food arrived quickly so much choice and... More

Been using this place for quite a while now and totally fed up with the take away service. Now a standing joke in our house as to what they will forget to include. And when they do get the order right they have, on more than one occasion, gone to the wrong address. Shame because the food is nice and... More

We've used Albaik for over a year now, either visiting the restaurant or ordering a delivery takeaway. We've stopped going to the restaurant as much now as we found it was always chaotic and had turned into more of a conveyor belt than a relaxed atmosphere. Tonight we decided to order a delivery. Rang at 7.40 and was told it... More

Ordered 3 mixed grills and a wrap all with chips. Received 2 mixed grills and and a wrap, 3 portions of chips. Rang to ask about the missing mixed grill and chips, they informed that they would bring a new mixed grill & chips and 'look after us' with a complementary garlic bread for our trouble. Received only a mixed... More
