We had our Christmas work dinner here last week and it met all my expectations. Relaxed accommodating with great service and attention to the group. Food was fantastic and it really set us up for a great night in neighbouring Shoreditch. Such a great find.

A cosy hideaway in Shoreditch, fusing eclectic flavours from across the Middle East with unique dishes brought to you from our Arabian kitchen. What better way to continue your journey with us but by enjoying shisha in our outside heated area and indoor E-shisha basement.
