Harden's survey result
“Brilliant”, “fresh” and “unusual” Levantine flavours; “cheerful and helpful staff”; and “sunnily charming decoration” ensure these “above-average”, modern Middle Eastern bistros are “invariably lively and bustling”. The SW7 branch is a well-known fixture of the ‘Petit France’ enclave of South Kensington, while its two-year-old spin-off has made a good start establishing itself at the top end of Soho – “you can understand the popularity when food of such a high standard is produced at such very reasonable prices”.
A “different and very refreshing” formula combining “helpful service” and “consistently delicious and inventive Levantine food” all at affordable prices for the area wins enthusiasm for this “cheerful” café in the heart of South Kensington’s French quarter. (A second branch has just opened in Soho at 11 D’Arblay Street, W1.)
“Excellent Levantine cuisine at very reasonable prices” win consistent praise for this middle eastern newcomer. Some fans “are puzzled at by the decor choices” but for a “cheap and cheerful” option “convenient to South Kensington and the museums” it fits the bill.
For 30 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).
