On 29 September 2019, 3 friends descended on this lovely restaurant tucked away in Highbury Park at short notice. Ali, our host, welcomed us with open arms into the warm friendly atmosphere. We were able to choose a number of courses to share. The food was really good and the wines complimented the dinner. In particular, the House Red Wine: Shiraz-Merlot-kalecik-Bogazkere from Denzil, Turkey, was splendid. Thanks Ali, for a wonderful night.

Right, so I'm not sure what all the fuss is about at all. I ordered the 'Magic Box' and was bitterly disappointed - 7 quid for six blobs of falafel and a bit of salad, which tasted like it was from Tesco (and not even from their Finest range). The sauce was quite pleasant.Was it because I didn't order the infamous wrap? Is that why I had an utterly yawn experience? Surely if an eaterie is so celebrated then all dishes (um, 3) should be excellent?Oh and the chap who served me was rude.Hi,Thank you for sharing your review. We are sorry to hear you experience did not match your expectations.We hope you visit us again so you can get the kind of excellent experience we're known for.Thanks!

Where today you see The Prince of Greenwich is the historical Victorian "Albert" which changed its name during the last few years. It still keeps the charm and the integrity of this beautiful historical building, know with the dÃ©cor from La Rosa Collectio
Walked in with family and was greeted by owner who couldnât do enough to make us feel welcome. He made sure we was ok.

We have been looking for some time for a very good Lebanese restaurant as a couple of our favourites have closed down. Although we have tried several, we have never felt quite satisfied. While browsing on the net this one appeared to be worthy of a visit. So we went a couple of weeks ago at 6.30 on a Friday and it was already packed! We ordered Sujuk and Babaganoush for starters and both were very tasty especially the Babaganoush which had a velvety texture and delicate flavour. The Shish Taouk and the Kofta were absolutely gorgeous served with homemade pitta. Just a couple of minor points, my Kofta was warmish and I would have preferred it hotter while the salad although tasty, was a little bit watery making the meat a bit soggy which impinges on the flavour. Overall I will rate it at 4 Â½ as it was a very good meal reasonably priced and a generous portion too. We were also given a small tray of Lebanese sweet to take with us.Thank you Francesco for choosing our restaurant and leaving us this great review. So happy to read you loved the Babaganoush... we pride ourselves on using the freshest ingredients to create authentic dishes that are bursting with flavour.. Hopefully we can welcome you back again in the future and offer you a 5 star service! Very best wishes from the Grilandia team

Waited for 30-40 mins and all we are was some bread and broad beans.With all the 5 star reviews we had to try this place given the dull alternatives in the shopping centre.We were well greeted and were told that the dishes were like tapas but large dishes and would come one by one.We waited, drinks were emptied a few times which we refilled ourselves by getting the water jugs ourselves.15 minutes later we got some toasted sourdough. In the meantime a table behind us sent 2 plates of food back.Another table who ordered after us got a few plates of food.The waiter knew we were waiting a long time and comp'ed us some broad beans and almonds which were fine. These were finished as was the bread (which we were hoping to save for the falafel and hummus).We asked if our food was coming, the waiter said "now". He explained that the chicken takes a long time to cook, but we still hadn't got our falafel. He then explained that he thought we weren't sharing and so they would come out at the same time.This despite him explaining that food would come out one plate at a time and both of us having sharing plates in front of us.Another plate of food went to another table.So we got up to leave. They said the food was ready. The chef brought out the plate of chicken, still no falafel and gave us a speech about being a "real" chef with 30 years of experience cooking everything from fresh. Thank goodness he is a real chef and not just pretending to be one joking around whilst guests are waiting and not pushing.Though after 30 years experience 2 or 3 tables shouldn't really be a push. Waiting 30-40 minutes for food is not acceptable whatever the food and when there are only 2 other tables. Yes my partner exaggerated and said we were waiting an hour, but I guess it felt like it for her.The previous night we were at a Michelin star restaurant and were 2 courses down into a tasting menu after 30 minutes.Either way the waiter knew it was taking a long time hence the free snack. The chef knew it was long because he came out with the chicken to try and explain himself with a lot of attitude. Amongst other things we were told it wasn't fast food and we should try some where else if that's what we wanted. Thanks for the suggestion, but if you're going to take that long to just serve toast and broad beans let us know and we'll give it a miss.Nothing you state in your review is true. As mentioned if it's fast food your'e looking for you have plenty of options. I cook my chicken fresh and that takes time. BTW all customers get the almond habas fritas mix complementary. It felt like a full moon last night with the customers we got!! Go figure.......

We are the offspring of Hiba Express and serve the same delicious homecooked Middle Eastern food with our Palestinian roots infused. From tasty grills to vibrant vegan tastes - there is something for everyone.
The kids wanted Shawarma so we headed to Hiba. Amazing food. The falafels were excellent too. The place is small but still great for families. Everyone is well looked after and attended to by the staff. We will be going again when back in London.
