Begin your meal at London’s Arabesque in true Middle Eastern style with some mezze.

We love the skewered duck fillets marinated with coriander, yoghurt and herbs and the flame-grilled chicken and chorizo served with chickpea rice in a tomato sauce. You’ll also find a range of seafood like the marinated silver trout with saffron and garlic, and sea bass fillet with rosemary and lemon, and vegetarians will have plenty of choice too.
