I had two below average experiences with this place but food brings them up. First, me and my friend tried to get a table on a Friday night. They seemed busy which is fair enough, it is Friday but this by no means does not justify the way they turned us away.. The hostess kept saying No..no .no table ...no..... More

I went there with my friends expecting some nice Spanish tapas and decent wine. However we were stunned by the whole experience, the food was very nice and the live music did definitely make a difference. We will came back soon!

Went here on a Friday night, very busy so lucky we had booked in advance. Food was really good and the portion sizes were excellent. Everything came very promptly and we had no complaints at all. Personally I love tapas and yet seem to struggle to find places I like in London so very happy to have discovered this gem.

The only thing I would have liked is some sort of deal / happy hour on the cocktails. We'll be... More

The proprietor Asghar and his attentive staff, along with some of the tastiest food I've eaten in London made this a great night of food, friends and festivity! This will... More

I think the biggest tapas portions in London. Staff is fantastic and good is delicious! I am spoilt and fussy...I think if I am pleased everyone else will be ecstatic!
