“Fabulous starters and dips with full-on heat and unmissable shawarma (both meat and vegetarian)” is the run-down on Josh Katz’s Tel Aviv-meets-North Africa grill in Exmouth Market. Here and at his original venue from 2015, a Haggerston railway arch, Katz and his team conjure up a “reliably great range of quality melanges” – he’s not fussy about where he’ll find ideas and ingredients (the Balkans, Turkey, Iraq, Iran and Yemen are all mentioned on his menus). It’s all very more-ish – “so good I went twice in one week!”.

“Hearty… well-seasoned and flavoured… YUMMM!”“The most delicious selection of smoky grilled meats” can be “a revelation” at Josh Katz’s North African-style grill in a funky Haggerstone railway arch… and “the veggie dishes are actually even better (the roast beetroot with whipped feta is to die for!”). “The menu evolves enough to keep things interesting and bring you back for more” and there’s “fabulous wine” and spicy cocktails too.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
