“Plentiful and nourishing Israeli dishes” (with “a delicious mix of spices and textures”) win waves of praise for Honey & Co’s younger, larger grill-house spin-off, south of Great Portland Street tube. It’s “a busy and lively” (“frantic” and “very noisy”) venue, popular with large parties, but whose “1970s-style plastic moulded chairs” can seem “strangely utilitarian” (unless you are someone who appreciates “the authenticity of Middle Eastern café culture”).

“Delicious, copious and very original Middle Eastern cuisine” inspires nothing but praise for Honey & Co’s bigger sibling, south of Great Portland Street tube – a modern take on the grill house – even if ratings support those who feel “it’s not quite as excellent as when it first opened”. “Shame the decor is so unwelcoming”, too – “it looks like a converted office” and can seem “awkward and uncomfortable”, especially in comparison with the “café intimacy” of its stablemate.

“Whoa, brilliant!”“Honey & Co’s bigger sibling” opened to rightful acclaim in late 2016, south of Great Portland Street tube. A modern take on a Middle Eastern grill house, it serves a “seemingly endless array” of “spectacular but completely honest” mezze (“you rediscover dishes you thought you knew like hummus or falafel, and you marvel at simple raw veg which feels re-invented”). On the downside, the site is “a bit lacking in ambience”, but given its “upbeat” and “enthusiastic” staff most reporters don’t quibble . Top Menu Tip – “I’d run a marathon just for the cheesecake!”
