Thursday night up town and fancied something different, heard good things about Albatta so decided to give it a shot. Very quiet so no problem getting a table. Very friendly staff behind the bar and the guy who served us, no complaints there at all....More

It is a good restaurant where middle eastern foods and shisha are served. The customer service is fairly good but could be made a lot better. No other place would beat their shisha. it is really good.
