Description: Our food is meant for sharing, so there's plenty of choice, with everything from dips to mezze bites, savoury flatbreads, tagines, wraps, salads, pastries and cakes; we even bake our own Moroccan bread. Middle Eastern dining is a social affair. Pick a few dishes and share them with friends. Forget the knife and fork - mezze is finger food. Make a picnic in the park with a mezze platter and some wraps. Take a couple of richly-flavoured tagines home and pass them off as your own cooking. Or after shopping, put your feet up with us and have a fresh rose mint tea.

“Avoid! ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2014 via mobile

Having really enjoyed this restaurant in the white city westfield I thought I'd try the one at Stratford.

The guy behind the counter couldn't have made it more obvious that he hated his job and that, by placing an order, I was making his life extremely difficult. Once he'd reluctantly taken the order we waited an eternity for cold, horrible food that was some of the key ingredients specified on menu. Given the extremely slow service amd rude staff I decided not to raise a fuss.

“Cold and disappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014

Visited on Saturday lunchtime, dreadfully slow service, with apparently only one member of staff preparing and getting food to customers. I tried the lamb and prune tagine, which is a lamb tagine with four dry prunes added to the side of the dish after it has been plated up. The tagine and couscous cost more than £8, which would be okay if it were served above tepid. Surely if the food sits at such low temperatures, this is an environmental health issue - Newham Council please take note. I handed it back and saw it blitzed in the microwave, which made the sauce disappear, and the couscous turn to stodge, and no apology. The lamb was very tender, but the tagine totally lacked seasoning and flavour. I could have been eating lamb in a bland gravy. Dreadful!

“Be warned its very disappointing!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2013

The menu was reassuringly expensive so i expected resonable food, i could not have been more mistaken, The portions that my partner had were tiny, the Salad (£7+) was tasteless and limp.
When i asked for some chilli sauce they wanted to charge me more!
There are a hundred other places in Westfield to eat, i strongly reccomend you try another.

“simple and tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

I had a chicken koftka wrap with salad and hummus, my date had the same wrap but with potato and they were both filling, full of flavour and a pleasure to eat! When you order food from a picture or a pre made one in a display cabinet you are inherently dubious at to how the final product will appear, having said that these were better than the examples and images and they packed a punch for flavour too!

“Great take away food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

Neede a bite to eat on the run. With such good prices and good food this place should give the multinational fast food restaurants a run for their money!
