Didn’t want to cook so I decided to try Masgouf as I had read some good reviews & I live very close by. I booked in advance & was there at 1.30 on the Sunday . I asked what the special dish of the day...was. I was told that the chef had arrived late & the dish of the day would not be ready for another hour or two. I ordered an Iraqi specialty Kouzi, which was tasteless, had no seasoning not even salt. It was dry rice with barely a touch of saffron & unseasoned but tender lamb (which is why I gave 3 rather than 2 stars) . I ate only because I didn’t want to send the food back & I didn’t want to go home & cook. Pity because it’s my local & I would have been a regular. However I like tasty food not totally bland & I expected more flavour & taste. Disappointing.More

Wonderful, tasty Iraqi restaurant serving mostly meat and fish stews and grills. We really enjoyed the meze starter and also the kouzi which is like the Iraqi version of lamb shanks. The meat was beautifully flavoursome and tender but we also had a vegetarian in...our group and she was delighted with her aubergine dish too. Highly recommended.More

Dropped in for a takeaway lunch. The food was amazing in terms of taste and volume. Full of flavour and plenty of food. Fast, friendly service. Will definitely be back.

This is the best non veg restaurant in Kensington , London Everything served here is halal. You can try randomly any dish and I say that you will fall in love with the taste. So many different variety of non veg dishes from Chichen, Mutton...and Fish. Stew fish, Chicken Khabsa, Mutton Khabsa are my favourite. Not to forget their milk sweet Halawa is just awesome.More

The food was very good, the meat tender and the sauces full of flavour. We shared all the dishes and found that you didn’t get much meat in each bowl. Considering the cost of nearly £20 a dish. It really spoilt what would have been...a great meal. The staff were great, attentive but no5 overbearing.More

I had a kebab there which was very good . Even the service was very good. But the strange part was that it lacked Iraqi staff. Only the chef was Iraqi

This restaurant looked inviting, so we dropped in for lunch. We hadn't planned or booked; just saw it in passing. The place was full, with only a couple of 'western' people there, which we took as a really good sign. The food was passable and...quite tasty, but not quite what we expected with regards to 'sides' and garnishes: some sort of sauce, or even yoghurt, with the meats would have been good. Where we felt out of place was with the service. We had to repeatedly ask where drinks were, or when could we pay the bill, but those diners who were more 'local to the cuisine' had no such problems. I don't wish to sound racist, but that's how we felt we were treated. Having said that, I would be happy to give this restaurant another go next time I am in the vicinity.More

With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
