Not really great if you are an open table member. Firstly they couldn’t find the reservation and as soon as they knew it was the 40% off food booking they told us it was the wrong branch.Then upon seating us we were told there was no fish or prawns available(they were served to the table next to us!) obviously as these were the most expensive items on the menu.

The waitress however was polite and did assist us in the order but it was the management who need to decide whether they want to serve open table customers or not?

When the food did arrive (we obviously were not the priority in the restaurant due to our discount!) it was tasty but it was obvious they wanted us out within the 1.5 hours limit.

So dont bother going if you are an open table customer as they don’t want us savvy types who are out to dine at decent establishments but look out for good discounts as as not prepared to pay the extortionate prices that are on offer!

Too overpriced for what you get. We had to pay a £5 cover for belly dancer which never turned up and we weren't informed of it. Other customers got preferential treatment which made us feel very under appreciated. Really poor overall experience and no value for money.

I was allocated a table for two with my date period unfortunately this table was situated right next to an area for only staff access. However this area was then later used by the main patrons which kept bumping into my chair whilst I was eating without apology to which the management and the door staff became aggressive because I was complaining that I was eating my food and it was not fair. The only people that made a stay for the main course were the blonde female and the bar staff their service was on point

Food was delicious. Dessert was epic. Cocktails were amazing. Slightly overpriced for the quantity you receive but the quality was definitely there.

Shisha was cramped and very expensive. Would like to see more flavour options available. Plus it was very cold and the heating was not having any effect on us.

Overall good experience.

The restaurant was nice and quite wasn’t busy on a Friday night which was good.

The waiter so brilliant lovely young guys.

The food not so great the platter is for 2 but not filling need to offer more on the platter taking in mind of the price just for 5 pierce of meat.

Standards definitely have dropped here as I returned here only due to a good experience last time I visited here but not impressed with this place at all now !!

1) the booking - I used open table to reserve a table and I didn’t hear anything or receive any confirmation. I took it upon myself to email them also to see if they had received my booking to which I got no reply. When we got to the restaurant and we were rudely told downstairs was dull and to sit in the lounge by the most unhelpful & most unfriendly host olga who was trying to usher us to our seats quickly in the lounge area which is as soon as you come in and is the bar area which is drafty and no entertainment!

2) Service - I requested we sit down stairs as that’s why we came here for the entertainment. I have been here before for my birthday previously and highly recommended this place to my friends for which we were celebrating our birthdays. Olga was super rude and just dismissed requests and said no you can’t sit downstairs. I felt like she was looking at us up & down and being like “you don’t belong here” I asked her if we could be seated downstairs when a table is available. She said “have your meal here and then go down and can sit at the bar to watch the entertainment “
I was furious and wanted to walk out there and then but I didn’t as had planned the night around Mayfair but I wish I did leave then !!!! What kind of service is that when she was so abrupt and rude and doesn’t realise we have plenty of money to spend here that’s why we are here! I was offended as we all were dressed smart, elegant & sexy, maybe we Made her feel insecure who knows?!!, STILL NO EXCUSE FOR THAT BEHAVIOUR.
The only decent service came from our waiter Zakeer whom we later discovered was the manager and he was the most attentive waiter with great service for which I give this review I 2** for otherwise it would be 1.!! He was actually the manager and said he will speak to her about her behaviour.

Food was good, but the portions were very small for the price but this was expected due to the location of the restaurant. The shisha area is very basic and small and the member of staff managing the area was very rude. Waitering staff inside were pleasant.

Bouncer was rude and greeted us with a very unwelcoming look I told him I have a reservation he answered with a rude glare “I don’t think you do” he walked us through to the lady at the desk who took my name and then showed me to my seat. We ordered drinks that took 15 minuets by that time we was starving we asked for black currant syrup in the lemonade we was look at us like we was stupid... ordered the mixed 5 starters a shisah but by the time we ordered another drink and the waiters attitude had gotten to us to much we just decided to pay the bill and leave. Would not recommend to people who are not of that culture don’t waste your time feeling out of place and uncomfortable. Upsetting tbh.

The place is beautiful, the restaurant service is very friendly and pleasent but not professional, our starters were served at the same time as main courses and we were told we needed to be clear that we wanted the starters before. Wine list is nice but again wine servers need training on the basics of how to pour and how much to pour. After dinner we move outdoors for Shisha which was superb, excellent service and ambiance and would rate this part 5/5 and while very expensive, the quality and the service justify the price

Pleasant staff and good food. However, we felt watched over possibly due to the small size of this restaurant. Our bill arrived almost as soon as he had put our knives and forks on the plate.
We didn't leave immediately and was then told the table was needed even though there was no one waiting.

The food was all really good and the service was great. The menu is slightly overpriced in terms of the portion size and there was a recommended spend per person despite the restaurant being fairly quiet for a Friday night. The entertainment is good however maybe a bit too loud for the number of people seated at the time. Overall good experience! Probably better for a special occasion!

We had a fantastic Valentine's dinner here. The food was outstanding (and my mother in law is Syrian so I am used to good Arab food), the waiter (a Spanish guy) was terrific and everyone was welcoming and warm.

Only downside was the volume of the music and the lady singing which prevented us from having a civilised conversation. They should address that.

Will definitively come back.

We did not feel welcome on this place. I was there last tuesday and the waiter did not make us feel welcome at all, i think she might be tired or sleepy but that was not our problem. She made wrong order twice but the manager was quick to react.
I was looking forward for my last night in London in Mamonia but it was a disappointment for me and my friend.

The belly dancer was the best thing and the waiter that served us our food was super friendly. Could not make up for the poor quality over priced food and drinks. Or when went for sheesha after being charged again to sit there for an hour in the cold
