“Aamazing food! Lovley interior, but the waitresses behind may have outshone it all.”
Reviewed July 31, 2014 via mobile

Came into the resturant on the 31st, had a selection of Meze dishes, they were amazing. Especially the red sausages, really good. The decor also is really lovely, however, half way through our meal the poor head waitress/ blonde manager figure emerged from the bathroom with her dress (a pretty floral number might I add) caught in her pants, her behind fully on show. We tried to get her attention numerous times, however, she seemed very busy, and didn't notice for a good 20mins. Lovely bottom though and amazing atmosphere, thanks again

“Awfull service”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

Was really looking forward to trying this restaraunt. But was really disapointed. The staff were not friendly or welcoming, there were 4 staff members in a small place but we ended up going to the bar to order our drinks as no one had came, and then it still took 25 mins to arrive, by which time the food had arrived. Food was ok but again staff didnt ask if everything was ok. Such a shame as the restuarant itself is very nice inside.

“Amazing Lebanese restaurant”
Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

I have lived in Oxford for 7 years and this is hands down one of the best restaurants here. It has only opened recently, but I've been there at least 10 times with family or friends and neither I nor my guests are ever disappointing. Every dish is delicious and the price is fair. A wonderful restaurant that I will miss when I leave Oxford!

“Really poor service!! Avoid”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

Went here last night, there was a group of us, the place was pretty empty.
We placed our orders, ALL the waiting staff are women/girls you would expect to find on a market stall selling cheap make-up.......they were abrupt, rude and had no concept of customer service. Food was ok........nothing special....after we had our starters we were told that we had to hang on to our cutlery!!! THAT WAS A DISGRACE........it was placed on the grubby plastic coated tablecloth.........wine was warm....when this was pointed out, the reply was, "well, it's come out the fridge".........needless to say I will not be going back........
It's fine if you are a student.........everyone else...there's plenty more choice on Cowley Road.

“Lunch Deals: not all is as it seems”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

They proudly display a lunch offers board on the road stating that lunch wraps are £3.95. My friend and I ordered a 'Chicken Shawarma', but decided to eat it in the restaurant rather than as takeaway. The wraps came out and tasted fine, certainly nothing special. We commented to each other that they were not 'wrapped', but thought it was because we were eating in the restaurant rather than taking away. When it was time to pay the bill the Shawarmas were down as £9 each. We queried why this was the case, but were told rather abruptly and without sensitivity that we had ordered wrong and that we should have been clearer that we wanted a wrap. I would have thought that the onus would be on the waiters to clarify exactly what we meant, and given that they obviously serve two types of 'Chicken Shawarma' that they would know to make the distinction between a shawarma wrap and shawarma main much clearer at the time of ordering.

All in all, pretty unsatisfactory and the waiters need to be trained properly in both courtesy and in their knowledge of the menu.
