Was staying nearby on business and spotted this relatively new opening. Pleased to get a solo booking online, and was seated at a communal table. Buzzy atmosphere, good service, interesting Levantine menu and tasty, good-value food.

We had a selection of dishes (5 for the two of us) and they were all delicious with different and exciting flavours. Service was good and staff was lovely. I'm definitely coming back to try more of the specialities!

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
