March 2019: it has been announced that the 10-seat chef's table we announced in our 2019 guide is actually to be part of a separate, albeit possibly temporary, new restaurant, Kebab Queen. A seven-course kebab 'tasting menu' will be served direct from the grill to a special heated counter (there'll be no plates OR cutlery!) by chef Manu Canales, a former sous chef at Le Gavroche. Opening April 2019.
Harden's survey result
A second venture from the team behind Soho’s highly popular Le Bab – this latest addition to Covent Garden’s new Mercers Walk development opened in September 2018. The brainchild of Stephen Tozer and Ed Brunet, the 40-cover restaurant (plus takeaway) serves the same style of modern kebabs and mezze that made its sister site such a success, but has the added benefit of a ten-seater chef’s table.
