The paneer kebab is to die for - it's so delicious. and im not even a vegetarian! Also the cheese fries are definitely worth a try. Really good atmosphere in here as well and friendly staff

I've been 5 + times now, and have been stunned every time. The Manager is a legend and the food is incredible. Just go, you'll love it.

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho
hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a
compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars,
and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red
Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –
and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the

We are a restaurant in Soho reinvigorating kebabs with provenance, seasonality and technique honed in Michelin starred kitchens. Our kitchen team have come together to explore new approaches to this ancient dish. The kebabs combine brilliant seasonal ingredients and the wood-fired flavours of the Middle East, near East and South Asia. We cook on a wood and charcoal-fired robot. We offer our sensational food alongside a lovingly curated wine list and bespoke cocktails made by our in-house mixologist. We also offer bottomless cocktails on the weekends - more details on our website.
