Went here recently for a casual business lunch. Although the menu is concise, everything sounds delicious- the only grip I have is as a veggie there is only 1 main or starter I could have but my companions were thrilled. Our food arrived really quickly...More

Obsessed with the cheesy fondue fries and the paneer kebab. Unbelievably delicious, and even better when teamed with a cocktail. Staff are super friendly and there's a great atmosphere in here too, would highly recommend.

Delicious food. I'm still dreaming of those lamb bhajis. And the paneer is like nothing else. I've been here many times now and it never disappoints.

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.
