“Hidden Gem in the hustling-and-bustling”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

We came here because we were doing some shopping at Oxford Street and we "tripadvisored" the nearby good restaurant when we got hungry after a long day walk. Not difficult to find as it was only few steps away from the Oxford Street (main shopping street).

It looked pretty small from the outside but the moment we entered the restaurant, we immediately felt the coziness. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

I must say the roast chicken, the chicken wings, the fries were perfectly cooked, they were so irresistable you just couldn't stop having all of them. The arabic mezze such as hummus and tabouleh were great too, especially it was not hard to accept for a non-arabic food eater like my friend. He enjoyed it so much!

Not to mention, price were fairly reasonable too considering it is located at one of the busiest area in London. Only around 40 pounds for a meal & drinks great for three persons (and we couldn't finish the food, the portion was huge!).

“Cosy cafe with brilliant service”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

I happened to stumble across this little cafe by accident and I'm so glad I did. First thing I noticed was the greeting by the friendly staff, food was amazing, coffee was world-class and Irina was a brilliant waitress, would definitely recommend!

“Chicken to perfection”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

This place is a real gem in Soho. Amazing chicken, wraps, sides, drinks and vibes from a really friendly family run business. I work next door so go most lunch times, and look forward to it every day.

“Best chicken I've ever had”
Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

I'm really happy I decided to try this place, we went there for dinner and stayed a bit longer chatting and having a few drinks. The food is great and at a good price, upstairs there's a nice romantic candlelight atmosphere, so great place. Will definitely go back!

“Prosecco Wednesdays!”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

We went as a group on a Wednesday night, and this coincided with 'Prosecco Wednesday'- 10GBP for a bottle.. tasted good and went down well with the food. Food was excellent.. a reasonable variety for veg and non-vegetarians with good Lebanese-influenced sides (e.g. halloumi, houmous, moutabel etc), and mains (e.g. lamb burgers, falafel burgers, and chicken).

Great value, inexpensive for London standards and good location. Service was fair.
