The food here is not great at all, overcooked and totally lacks authenticity. With some excellent Middle Eastern restaurants and cafes around as local competition, this doesn't stand a chance. We won't go back.

Tardis-like with good high ceiling and nicely decorated room at the back. Straight out of the oven bread, fresh salad, perfectly grilled meat, good service, generous portions and surprisingly well priced. This is rare quality! Get there quick before the hordes and inevitable price increase....More

We popped in here last night and were very impressed. The food is delicious and cooked to order. Friendly staff, decent portions and with the BYOB it's extremely good value for money. Looking forward to going back several times and introducing friends and family.

I wish more restaurants were BYOB, so you get to drink what you want with the food you're ordering. So armed with a nice bottle of rose we sat down in Damakh. Starters of feta parcels and falafel were served up with sauces, salad and...More

Slightly outside of town and situated in the St Johns area opposite The Skinners School it's easy to miss this gem from the narrow shop frontage. Once inside there is extensive seating to the back of the restaurant and they offer both lunchtime specials or...More
