Went here late night for drinks. There was a lot of salsa dancing happening, not sure if that was a special occasion or every night. There was a cover charge of 2#, which we didn't have to pay after we balked. Place was very clean and nice, but drinks were expensive. The staff was very friendly. We only had one drink, then left.

There is an extended happy hour here which means that the cocktails are two for the price of one. The cocktails are a bit hit and miss though as it very much depends on the experience of the cocktail staff. Some are experienced and so you get a good cocktail. Less so when a novice serves you.

What can I say? This place is fantastic for any kind of mood you're in! If you want to have a nice chilled drink with a mate, you've got lovely seating inside near the bar, and a garden with heaters in the back and a nice view of the canal, smoking area too. If you feel a little peckish, the food is unbelievable! So good for having a nice lunch or dinner with family and friends and even kids. Very nice cosy seating area for the restaurant. The prices are very decent too, especially for the amount of food you get. 99.9%, the food arrives within 10 minutes because the chef rocks at what he does. There's also a cool Shisha area right at the back with heaters when it gets cold, open view of outside and chilled music. Also, happy hour! 2 for 1 cocktails which me and my mates literally rinse! On a Friday and Saturday, the place is live, for those of you who want a club kind of experience, but without the total darkness and alcohol spillage everywhere, this is the place to be! Not to mention the staff; Dastan (Owner) who not only owns the place, but works there along with the staff as a team, Dave (manager), James and Daniel, who go out of their way to ensure your visit is more than up to standard. Such bubbly and friendly guys who will honestly make your day. There is sooooo much more that I could say, but honestly, I think this should be enough for you all to get yourselves up there! If I could give more than a 5 star rating, I would! Honestly, GO GO GO! ;D

Great food, great service and nice atmosphere. Arrived and was welcomed, served splendid drinks including a wonderful spicy tomato juice. Given menus at the bar as we were in a bit of a hurry. We chose a lamb and chicken main with a bread which arrived in good time. Food was super nice. Sevice continued at our table. Best dinner I've had in a long time! Definitely will come back!

We mainly went for the food and it was excellent! We had the Fatoush salad, the feta salad with falafal and chicken wraps! The flavors were spot on and we even came back another night because it is hard to find good Lebanese food. Very reasonably priced, great service, friendly people and clean. Do give it a try.
