Hookah Lounge

Large selection of teas, great atmosphere and cosy Moroccan interior. We came here for tea in the evening after dinner, and I would definitely recommend this place for tea. Service little bit erratic and occasionally they didn't understand what we were saying.

Tayyab Kebab House

We came here in a group of 8, and before I had even arrived, the rest of the group were put into the VIP room with no explanation and then told they could not have water in this room. After asking to be seated in the regular restaurant section, I arrived and ordered a starter and a lassi. However after half an hour, and the main courses of the rest of the group arriving, and my asking where my starters were several times, I was told 'it's coming' about 6 times by 6 different waiters, with one waiter saying 'you came late, you get your food late'. Very poor service and attitude. When my food finally came, it was dumped in front of me with a 'see we told you it was coming' attitude and no eye contact.

Another person in the group ordered rice with his curry, but the rice did not arrive, and after repeatedly asking where the rice was, it finally arrived after the curry had already been eaten. No apology or explanation. We were given the bill as soon as we finished the main course, without even a chance to order dessert.

All in all, very poor service, extremely noisy and crowded seating, and not anything of the ordinary in terms of food. The only item worth mentioning on the menu is their starter kebab, which was succulent and flavourful. Otherwise skip this, and go to any other Indian restaurant.
