Dinner at is a unique dining experience. 24 non- bookable seats surround the bar, whilst the food is cooked to glorious perfection as diners look on. Eating out at makes you feel like you're hanging out at the coolest joint in town.

It is one of those restaurants that you don't know what to expect until you get there. Its menu reflects the former Barbary Coast (Morocco, Algeria, Libya and Tunisia) and throws up an intriguing choice of dishes, such as the 'hashcake'.

ticks all the boxes of the London hipster joint: unique concept, brick walls, high prices. And yet, for all its aching trendiness, it was surprisingly welcoming and cosy. Although the seats are not comfortable if you're a short person. Whilst we were inevitably waiting, the serving staff were attentive and made sure we had drinks. Apparently, if you have a very long wait, they give you a free appetizer but luckily we didn't have to wait that long.

But what sells it is the high quality of its food. We started with the tasty naan bread, which was beautifully baked. I followed this with the Patra Negra. It was delightful- easily some of the most delicious food I've tasted for a while. For dessert we had baklawa each- however, the portions were so small that it looked like a pudding divided in two. This is something you will need to expect if you dine at .





The other thing you need to get used to is the fact that they will try to rush you through your dinner. With so many waiting diners, there isn't time to hang about. Our naan bread was removed before we had even finished, which was annoying.

So, if you want wonderfully tasty food and are willing to overlook the express service and small portions, is your new favourite dinner spot. Worth waiting in the cold for.
