There's nothing better than the excitement of trying new food. Think of the delight on our faces when we entered expecting to eat middle-eastern dishes (already a plus), only to find that one of the stars of the menu is muhamara - a perfect Syrian alternative to hummus. But there's more. The menu is filled with many meat and vegetable delights, plus sweet desserts like baklava. We particularly liked the lamb kofta with Arabic-style pickles, hot pepper, harissa and yoghurt. As for the interior, it's modern but the waitressing style is old-school to the core - friendly, knowledgable, simply professional. You'll be delighted to know the bar serves up some snazzy cocktails, from classics to some unique in-house recipes. Wine is also available, and goes great with the meals. Two Tuesdays p/month you can enjoy jam sessions too, so come here for food, or come here for drinks with friends - you won't be disappointed.
