    This was my second visit was a lot quieter than my last visit the food really is outstanding and I would definitely recommend it. Unfortunately the service was not as great as my first visit. Our food and drink order was taken at the same time after waiting quite awhile then our starters came out before we even had a drink then the drinks came after. We sat with no drink for quite some time while we were eating our mains after we had finished our mains then someone did ask if we wanted another drink we did as it was a birthday celebration our drinks came we was not offered desserts or anything. We sat and drunk out drinks we would have had more drinks and dessert if there was anyone about to look after our table then when we wanted to leave it took over half an hour for someone to get the bill and for us to pay. They lost out on the money we would have spent on more drinks and desserts. Saying that I would go back as the food is so nice but hopefully the service would be as efficient as the first visit.

    We went on a Saturday evening to have dinner with friends. The food and drinks were very nice. The service was OK, 3/4 of us got our drinks quite quickly, and we had to ask the staff again to get the last one, which still wasn’t done immediately. The atmosphere was very lively, and the entertainment was good but it did make it very difficult to have a conversion. The table shape also made it difficult to chat and hear each other. Good experience and would go again, but on a quieter evening.

    We went to Babasheesh as we have previously enjoyed the food and service. Last night the food was still delicious, but the service although great to begin with, became very poor. We were just left. We waited nearly half hour for 2 drinks, were not offered dessert at any point, we had to call someone over for the bill and then waited ages to pay. It wasn’t a matter of short staff as there were 4 members of staff front of house to serve around 10 tables. But our waitress was folding napkins, one was clearing tables and I don’t know what the other 2 were doing but they were not being attentive to the guests in the restaurant, as another table even audibly called for service, and we could see other tables waiting for some form of service like us. I have a table of 9 booked for a special occasion in the coming weeks and I am seriously considering cancelling this reservation as I don’t want to ruin my Mums 50th birthday with poor service.

    The food was delicious. However, on the flip side, the delivery of the starters was staggered, the drinks didn't arrive until after the starters, they ran out of one of the meats in the platter, forgot one person's main meal, didn't offer clean plates / cutlery between courses and walked passed the table 4 times after the dinner was complete, without asking if all was ok/if we'd finished.

    Staff were attentive whilst it wasn't busy, once the restaurant filled up unfortunately the service deteriorated. We had to ask for bread to go with our starters which included a dip. By the time the bread arrived our main was ready. The waitress never returned to ask if everything was okay and we could not catch anyone's attention to request more drinks. Our dinner plates were cleared away, we were not asked if we wanted dessert or coffee. After waiting nearly 30 minutes we decided to pay at the till on the way out and 0ut our coats on. Only then did a waitress come over and we asked for our bill, we then had to wait 10 minutes for her to return with the card reader. This was all such a shame as the food was really nice. If the service improves I'll definitely return.

    It is a lovely restaurant with great food the portion sizes are a little small compared to other places I have been but great quality and very tasty. It is very nicely decorated and plays lovely music, but there was a saxophone player playing along with parts of the music and walking all around the restaurant this was not needed as it was distracting from the meal and conversation we were having.

    I met a friend for brunch and we were pleasantly surprised at the value for money and quality of the food and coffee. We will definitely be back - possibly for one of the evenings with live music which our lovey waiter was telling us about. He was fabulous thank you for taking such good care of us!

    Apart from two of the staff the rest were rude, one meal didn’t arrive then questioned us until they realised it was on the ticket, then only half got sent out once everyone else had finished. Baklava was out the fridge and rock solid, will not be returning

    From the service, to the cocktails to the food, it was all really lovely. I had booked a table for my friend and I and it was our first time there. I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious my cocktail was!! Best in Medway! I am originally from London and I've never been too impressed with the cocktails in Medway...until now. Will definitely go back

    Service was terrible and I was told that they didn't have what I had ordered for my main course when my friends were being served their main course, so that meant I had to re-order and wait while they were eating. Food was good though.

    Food amazing with a great atmosphere. Just a shame we were rushed. Hadn't even finished out starters before our main course came out. Started clearing plates before we had even finished. Whole meal lasted 1hour 10 mins. Hoping it was just an off evening as I really liked the place.
