Visited with friends on Wednesday fabulous food excellent service thanks
Never judge a book by its cover....or a restaurant from the outside! Its easy to by pass this restaurant as from the outside it doesn't look very inviting but once inside its a very pleasant surprise. It holds a surprising amount of diners over two floors with enough space to be intimate and yet not feel you're sitting alone. The Egyptian style food is delicious and the portion sizes are more than enough for even the hungriest diner. Service is 1st class and nothing is too much for the staff to do. Highly recommend this hidden gem!
The restaurant was so busy that we had to wait a while for our table but the food was gorgeous and the lovely staff couldn't apologise enough for our wait. They also took our drinks off the bill by way of apology. We got the royal meze platter and a few other dips and salads. This was more than enough for 3 people and was absolutely delicious.
Initial impressions when we walked through the door were good, very friendly staff. Then it started to go downhill slightly in that there was no draughty beer as something had broken. The bottled beer selection was sparce. We ordered a mixed shawarma and another chicken dish, the portions were poor for the price we paid. My wife had mousses which was tasty and plentiful. The men’s toilet was poor and looked un clean.. The toilet itself was a silver stainless steel pan with no seat. I saw another table being served by a guy in jeans and a denim shirt with a bluetooth earpeice in and a large bunch of keys hanging down from his belt. Don’t think I will be rushing back...
The place is fantastic! Waiting lounge is pretty and our orders were in right away. We had some hummus set for starter (for 2) and barely could fit in our Tagins! Food was very delicious and portions were quite generous. And most important the staff- lovely carrying and professional! Will come back for sure!
10/10 Food is absolutely brilliant! Never disappoints and is now my favourite place to eat. The cocktails are also very good (I recommend the 'tut toblerone') The staff are also very lovely and service was pretty quick especially as the place was almost full. Arabesque is a must try!
Excellent eating experience. Quality and quantity of food served is phenomenal. You have to try the Arabesque Mixed Grill with a platter of various meats - I would recommend giving a starter a miss because you'll struggle to finish two courses if you opt for this awesome meal!
