Friendly reliable menagment, delirious food, all in all pleasant and stylish atmosphere.
Lovely selection of courses, plenty of it too. The service was excellent, friendly and efficient.
Helpful staff, interesting and enjoyable food. Pleasant surroundings.
Been there, done it. Will not go again.
It felt like the waitresses were trying to get rid of us by attempting to take our half-finished food away, even after being asked not to.
We were overcharged after ordering a take away from the a-la-carte menu.
Be aware, the service charge was firmly added to our final bill although it was advertised on Groupon as optional.
On the final bill it also said "service charge is not included" whilst it was.
Soup was nice, meat was well dry and pretty much uneatable. Desert was brought only after reminding them.
Will not be returning.
For ten pounds each we got half a glass of wine (says a glass on voucher) some small shavings of meat, tiny portion of (delicious) humous and a stuffed vine leaf on a plate. One lovely waitress so I tipped her £2 but other staff sneering at looking at us etc. Empty restaurant which is ok of course. Nice location, even nice restaurant but I felt the restaurant was not that nice to customers (one guy behind the counter just near us looked sullen and even annoyed all evening. Staff demanded another £5 service charge as we left despite me saying i had tipped already; this charge is meant to be 12.5 percent DISCRETIONARY the voucher says. Not much for the money but tasty and one lovely waitress (blonde hair maybe East European - she made things nicer Maybe a meal there would be nice because the dips and plate of things we were given was very tasty but just not very much for the price. Did not check full price menu.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. They explained the menu that we would get with our voucher clearly. And we really enjoyed the food which there was a lot of. Four of us went and we all really enjoyed it.
Excellent, authentic food. Friendly staff. Will go again.
