Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I highly recommend this restaurant. We just turned up on spec, due to all the good reviews we’d read on trip advisor. We were definitely NOT disappointed. We had a warm welcome and shown to a table downstairs, as upstairs was rammed. Our waitress, Laila...was great and Explained the menu to us and was excellent in helping us make our choices. To start with e had calamari, houmous and a hot pitta, which were very tasty and really got our appetites going. For mains we had Lamb shank Tagine, Merguez lamb sausage, saffron rice and a side of fries. The lamb tagine was stunning! It was so tender you just had to look at it and it fell apart and the rich gravy was very yummy great for dipping the fries in. The sausages had a lovely gentle spice to them and the saffron rice was lovely and delicate. We then shared baclava and ice cream for dessert. I don’t normally like baclava as I find it too sweet but this was perfect and finished the meal off perfectly. When the bill came I was quite surprised how reasonable it was and when I offered a tip I was told it was already added to the bill. Really cool! It’s a bit rustic in places but, but that’s quite the vibe of the place. You’ll be missing out if you don’t go. We loved it and will definitely be going back again. Tip: just make sure to book a table as you may not get in, as it’s really popular.More
