A nice location in Central London. Went for dinner so had to wait approximately 15 minutes to get a table. Once inside you get good and quick service. Food is great with lovely starters. Keep space for the delicious and generous main course. Great food

Stopped by on a Sunday evening, luckily walked straight to a table.Service was friendly and fast. Relaxed explanation of the menu. Tried the classic Chelo kebab and mixed starters. A safe bet, fresh classics to measure a menu by.
