The decor is inviting and cosy and the food is delicious and fresh, not at all greasy. The starters are amazing and you can bring your own wine (just pay corkage). There is outdoor seating too with a great atmosphere.

We were a large party of eleven and had booked a group of tables that were taken when we arrived! We had to sit elsewhere but it didn't have the same atmosphere. We ordered Mezza which is the best option when you have meat eaters and veggies in one group, it also gave 'picky' eaters different choices. The food was... More

When you go into this restaurant looks can be quite deceptive. The place looks small and cosy with a definite Persian look to it - very nice. The staff are extremely welcoming and the food consists of a range of Meze hot and cold and other typical middle eastern meals such as Tagines. We were in a bit of a... More

I had the mixed starter and it was absolutely gorgeous; probably the best falafel I've had outside the Middle East. Sage tea was really interesting too. The service was friendly and sincere, no servile rubbish! Definitely coming back when I'm in Coventry next!

It was my first time going to Habibi with my friends, as we wanted to try out Middle Eastern dishes for dinner. As we arrived at Habibi, all the tables at the front part of the restaurant were fully booked, so we had to eat "outside", inside a tent with an interesting fireplace in the middle. The music was really... More
