Bland meats. Bland hummus. The lamb felt bland and tasteless. Wouldnt recommend to anyone. If you are a tourist, avoid eating on edgeware road, especially here.

I visited along with a few mates a week ago during the middle of the day when it wasn't too busy. There was no proper greeting when we got in through the door and though I am not being racist, Eastern European waitresses always seem to show a lot of cheek and are very unfriendly in restaurants so we did...

While shopping in Knightsbridge decided to stop here for a quick snack. We all chose the lamb shawarma wrap and it was very good but really messy to deal with as it contained so much delicious salads and pickles. Great for a fast lunch.

They brought us complimentary olives and pickled banana peppers as starters followed by pitta breads and then baklavas after our dinner as dessert. We then ordered... More

I had a nice stop there, on a rushy day, to get some sweet, amazing baklava. Do remember to try their mint tea!

After spending some time in the weekend market on Church Street my wife and I walked down Edgeware Road and chanced upon Al Arez, one of the many Lebanese Restaurants on this road. The restaurant has a simple decor and has large windows, which makes it look spacious. They also serve shisha. We ordered a Hummus with Chicken Shawarma, an... More

We had 4 vegetarian dishes to share between two people. We were unable to finish it as the portions were huge. Everything came with warm Pita bread, pickles and olives. The best dish was the Muhammara made of tomato paste and nuts. The Moussaka tasted a bit bland and had tons of chickpeas inside. Service was okay but not overly... More
