What a flippin anti climax. EXPECTED much, delivered little. POSSIBLY the worst restaurant that I've been to in a while. Tasteless burnt chicken, £4 for juice out of a carton, cold cheap pittas and waiters who didn't a damn. To top it all it was...More

Been eating here for a couple of years anytime we're on Edgware Road. We always get the tried and tested mixed grill and whatever shisha we want at the time. Good atmosphere and always busy. The owners must be wealthy enough to change the carpet...More

The restaurant looks very nice, the furniture is decorated in what i think it's egyptian-arab style and there is a nice aquarium. Food tastes good but I found it a bit hard to digest.

The food and drink is average at best with the only positive being the slightly generous portions. We also decided to have a shisha in the outside seating area that was cramped and shared a table with reluctant people. The restaurant is decent and comfortable,...More

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
