Good food, but it should be more authentic and has a variety of old Iraqi food. The market is kinda more expensive than other markets, but still you will find what you want. They need to redecorate the restaurant.

The owner is an Iraqi so I thought it would be a authentic middle eastern restaurant. I rushed in there for the kabobs which I missed from Iraqi restaurants in England but I was disappointed. It was very dry, the lamb/beef compress was just two...More
