The tang of Tel Aviv-meets-North African tastes infuse the lipsmacking charcoal-grilled meats (and also the veg) at Josh Kat’s Haggerston railway arch, which is mostly a walk-in style place (though there are a few tables for bookings). But, in fact, it’s the more recent Exmouth Market spin-off that inspires more feedback nowadays: “Having Shawarma Bar in the title might make it sound like a kebab-shop but, it’s actually an unassumingly intimate restaurant, with great sharing plates and grill dishes that don’t break the bank”. And “it really punches above its weight in terms of the seriously delicious Israeli/Eastern Mediterranean dishes it turns out (the rotisserie chicken is amazing) complemented by an exciting, low-intervention wine list”.

“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.

“The best beef short ribs in town… and the chargrilled cauliflower rocks!” – be it meat or vegetarian, all dishes dazzle at this “pretty damn cool” and “very reasonably priced” North African-inspired grill in a Haggerston railway arch – they even have their own collaboration beer with a great local brewery.
