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

The restaurant looks very nice, the furniture is decorated in what i think it's egyptian-arab style and there is a nice aquarium. Food tastes good but I found it a bit hard to digest.

Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods
