Minimal service, below or food and high prices. Had to request plates(!) three times and food was tasteless. Drinks served in cans and £1.50 for a cheap no brand bottle of water - really? Then a 10% service charge is added! Refused to pay this,...More

Went there on a recommendation. Went a bit mad in ordering food. No need for a starter and a main. My suggestion is the spicy sausage starter. Some hummus and a samosa. But enjoy this place, noting that you can’t get an alcoholic drink here.........

As an Egyptian citizen, I was trying to avoid these places. But my friends insisted that we go to have Shisha there. It has the same Egyptian way of dealing with customers in coffee shops; slow service, wrong orders, noisy, rude workers. I hated it...More

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

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
