I'm Syrian and have grown up on delicious homemade yummy Arabic food. This is so yummmmm and authentic and amazing. Least not to mention cheap and BYO no corkage. Get the stuffed cabbage leaves, liver, mixed grill, fattoush, vine leaves, falafel, humos... Yummmmmmmmmmy!

Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods
cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience.
Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged
between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the
southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of
Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as
pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The
bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it
