Azita is always busy what ever time or day you go and so much so they have recently expanded and are still just as busy, now that speaks for itself alone, that is always a great sign. It is always clean, and well presented. Always a lovely welcome and the staff know their menu well, it seems they have minimally adapted their menu over the years but that also says a lot. They do what they do and well, and it works. It seems as though they have a low staff turnover and generally the same team on, they are excellent at their job and you are not bothered or rushed what so ever. The portion sizes are ample, consistent and always served hot and actually have flavour ! It has a lovely atmosphere, and at the right temperature! This is an ideal place for any occasion, whether it's for a date, meeting up with friends, business lunch,or just getting off the train for a wine and some tapas! They have an excellent early bird menu, which is fantastic value for money! I recommend Azita far and wide, and we go back time and time again! I wish it every success! They are running a fab business and their loyal staff do it justice

Very unimpressed with the food and service. The waitress got our food order wrong several times. We did not receive one of our starters and they brought out a different one instead. For main course, one of our party ordered the steak and instead was given salmon. These mistakes and delays then meant we had to move from the table to have our coffees and deserts in the waiting area at the front of the restaurant. This was to make way for a reservation after ours.
Regarding the quality of the food, I ordered mussels which were rubbery and overcooked. We were pretty underwhelmed and disappointed with our food.
All in all, not a happy experience and not worth the money.

I am surprised this ranked so very highly on TA. The quality of the meat isn't paeticulatly good - fatty and chewy on more than one occasion. We have stopped visiting regularly because of it. There are other higher quality eateries within walking distance.

We often go for the early bird Tapas which is great food and great value. Friendly staff and a cosy atmosphere, we love Bar Azita!

This is a great place for cocktails and tapas. We sat at the bar and ordered tapas throughout the night. The bar staff were knowledgable and we ended up trying lots of different cocktails, food was great value and we especially loved the haloumi cheese and squid. Somehow relaxing place to spend an evening but with a great atmosphere!
