Rude unfriendly staff. Bill came ridiculously high and 10% service charge added on. I don't mind paying for good service but on this occasion I refused to pay for their rubbish service, so the manager came over to us with his chest out like a gorilla, and told us in a very intimidating manner that we had to pay the...

Where do I start. After a night of football, we decide to go to Edgeware road for some Shisha and mint tea. Due to the fact every Shisha bar on the long strip was packed and Shishawi wasn't, we settled for it - I wish we hadn't. I've been to almost every Shisha bar on the strip and in and... More

This is the first time I've ever felt the need to write a negative review relating to a restaurant. But when you're charged £2 on your bill for ordering a cup of hot water you know that something is seriously wrong! We were so shocked by this charge that we actually called over a waiter and asked if they'd made... More

We went very late. Very different from your usual Turkish place. Loads of bright lights and music. Food came quickly. Really cool decor. Food was really nice. Staff really friendly.

Food is expensive and stale clearly not fresh and hygiene of the chefs is questionable. Shisha is half used with half tobacco being fresh if fresh who knows. It's all a waste of time and money. AVOID ! Go to salt bar !

Staying in Marylebone

Neighbourhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
