“Fantastic and mind blowing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

The reservation process was effortless and a good experience, staff has a good product knowledge and were very polite and helpful while making the reservation. We were well received and shown to our table promptly. Amazing ambience and location, the interior is mind blowing, heavy yet warm and welcoming. When you arrive at the table its very inviting with the nibbles already on the table. The waiting staff is very welcoming and efficient and had very good product knowledge with a very good sense of humour. The Sommelier Juan was also very welcoming and attentive together with all other staff that was serving our table. Again a warm relaxed atmosphere with amaZing interior. Each and every dish was prepared with much love and care and it all looked very appetising an tasted amazing! The whole evening was very memorable and we all will be back for sure!
Thank you to each and every staff member including Juan, Venetia and Chef Ismail for taking good care of us!

“Very good indeed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

I took my wife here and we really enjoyed it. A very exclusive feel from the minute you walk in. It is both cosy and big at the same time. The moving wall and light show is clever and interesting to watch. The food was very good, we both enjoyed it. The service was attentive and professional. Well worth trying.

“Great way to experience Middle Eastern flavours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

Very good service, lovely ambience and delicious flavours of the Middle East. There was a non-smoking section which was great- better if it was smoke free entirely inside. We had drinks and snacks- lovely cocktails. Favorite dish was the chicken livers- absolutely delicious! Nice unusual desserts.
