Since popping in and having a great sandwich I have now been back twice, each time to a themed night and both have been excellent. The deli is semi-transformed for the evenings and the staff cannot do enough. They do not have an alcohol licence but encourage you to take your own in whatever form (no charge) and you can even put it in their fridge !!
First time was a 5 course Persian evening. Varied food, ingredients explained and there was more than enough for anyone. Second time was Lebanese and that turned out to be 7 courses. Menu on each table explained what was coming and what it was and the staff explained further and answered questions.
Everything is made by themselves (it’s a real family run occasion with mother, father, daughter, son-in-law), served quickly, hot, no fuss considering the number of diners (up to about 36 I think) which many restaurants serving a gathering might struggle with.
It’s not cheap - £40 a head – but it is very good value when you consider how many courses are served and how hearty the portions are. A number of diners had to ‘pace’ themselves at course 3 and just eat something of everything rather than polishing off the lot just to make sure that they could actually get to taste each course.
All in all it is very good and a very welcome change from the norm. I will definitely go back and try something else – assuming there are places available because I genuinely think that if they could cope with more diners they would get more diners.
Well done !!!!
