Staff here were so attentive, looking after us for the entirety of the evening, including realising that we were celebrating a wedding anniversary so brought over a cake with candle. Food was lovely, great range of hot and cold mezze, chicken livers in pomegranate sauce were especially good! Seafood mains were fresh and great portions. Will definitely return.

Totally overrated here on Tripadvisor! It is good, but nothing special. I'd say Taboula in Garden City is *much* better. The evening started with a white wine that was totally off: very very sour and horrible taste. It can happen of course, but they should have seen and smelled this when pouring the glass.
