    Firstly the service is so on point. Our waitress (Adian lady with glasses) was super lovely, ready with recommendations for both food and wine which were all fantastic. Whatever culture this place encourages, it is working because she clearly enjoys working there and is passionate about the product. The meats were super tasty and well cooked. Everything we had was delicious. Super treat to have had the pig's bead, not to everyone's taste but if you don't mind looking at it, I'd recommend it.

    The food, drinks and service were the best I have had in a long long time. For a birthday celebration it was the perfect venue to catch up with friends. The dishes came out quickly and the staff knowledgable about the food and what to suggest. We felt welcome and loved every moment. Would recommend to anyone and everyone.

    Always amazing. This is dirty, indulgent, salty, garlicky goodness. Do not come here on a 1st-6th date. Roll your sleeves up and get your lamb on. Hot, fun waitresses too. £40 a head incl beers and service. Get in.

    Early in the week, evening, busy but quickly seated. Their draft home brew is tasty, reminders a little of Beaver Town Gamma Ray. Chicken was tender and creamy tasting, pork like it was straight off the BBQ. Cauliflower was nice addition, if only warm. A pleasant Tuesday pop out. Cheers up!

    A group of us went for a 'special meal' at Berber & Q and were not disappointed with what we ordered, especially some of the mezze plates that we thought just sensational. These included the smoked eggplant, the cauliflower shawarma and the roasted golden beets. Some superb dips too including the hummus and the blackened baba ghanoush with pomegranate. There are plenty of meat-based dishes on the menu, but a vegetarian can eat extremely well here. The restaurant is atmospheric: dark, vibrant and pretty noisy (helped along by loud music) - unfortunately the latter didn't always facilitate the conversation such a great cuisine deserved. Has an interesting (if small) wine list and the Casblanca Lager from Morocco also went down well.

    Been there with a friend for a Sunday brunch. We got The full Israeli, for 2: hummus, feta, Israeli salad, boiled eggs, avocado, tahine sauce, yogurt & date syrup, roasted beets & mushrooms. Sweet and sour food to start the day, tasty and abundant. Normal prices for London. Just a note: the venue is great, just a bit dark during daytime. Recommended.

    An intimate space tucked under the railway arches with a buzzing atmosphere, on fairly packed tables. Our favourite was the grilled cauliflower shwarma with tahini, fantastic crispy texture and explosion of tastes. We liked the beef kofta and the smoked aubergine with walnut sauce and burnt lemon as well. Very friendly waiters too. Only snag we had to wait a while for a table but they squeezed the three of us in.

    I've been to better restaurants, that provide the same quality, but bigger portions. The restaurant is good, service is good, food is good, though furniture could do with a little investment. The cheese cauliflower dish, is very nice and one of their most popular dishes to try. Overall it's still a good place to eat, just that the portions were bit on the lesser side, and they seemed quite tight with the pitta bread..

    A great under the arches, curved brick interior, good music and quick service. The menu has a middle eastern flavour with excitingly different dishes. Food is first class and delicious, vegetarian options are amazing but its also good for carnivores. Totally recommended if you want a vibrant and different meal out.

    This is one of our regular places and we bring everyone that visits ... the food is always amazing. We always over order as we know how good it all tastes but they happily pack it up to take home. This places also has a great vibe, full of atmosphere. If I was to be picky ... as a desert person the menu is limited but I go here for the amazing meat and veg. Enjoy

    Berber and Q. After a recommendation from a friend, friends and I decided to go. The decor is very dark. I heard of mood lighting, barely can see the menu. The toliets are even darker. First impression was not great. As a group of 8 I expected to wait long for a table, we didnt have to wait long for a table. 2 tables of 2 and a table of 4 next each other becam free, we asked if we could sit there. The waitress rudely replied we can only have 2 and 4 person table as they are keeping the a table for 2 for other potential customers (whatever happened to serving your customers in your establishment first. First in first served). A brench style table opened up, so we had a choice of a crammed table for 2 and 4 person added together or the brench sharing with two randoms. We choose the brench as the host said when the randoms left we can have the whole table. The randoms shortly left. On moving to fill the brench. The waitress again ushered us back to the brench leaving 2 spaces for potential customers. Then I informed her the host said we can have the whole table, she huffed and left, taking one dirty plate away with her. Second impression not great either. We ordered the food - 2 baby back ribs, lamb ribs, chicken breast, large chicken wings Roasted califlower, aubergine and pickled beetroots. The baby back ribs was tasty, it came with some grilled vegatables and pitta bread. The baby back ribs did have big clumps of fat, so looking at it (not literally as it very dark) it looks massive but meat to photo ratio is a bit misleading. Both sets ribs, and chicken wings were plated on the same plate (maybe this is another to way to mislead their patrons, if you plate things together people can't differentiate what is their actually portion size. Shame on you Berber & Q) The lamb was tender and chicken was forgettable. The aubergine thingy was far to salty. The rest was pretty average. The service was slow taking a while to top our water, unfriendly and generally unhelpful.The bar staff looked bored. All in all, food was averaged, over priced and misleading portion sizes. You can find better ribs elsewhere. Service was very bad. Decor is dark. I wouldn't come back or recommend Berber&Q. To top it off the front door didn't close properly so there was a draft. They put a discretionary 12.5% service charge on the bill but as the service and dinning experience wasnt great. I reduced the service Oh whilst we was eating they didn't have any potential couples come in, to fill the saved seats. Denny C

    This place has excellent food we had sharing vegetarian platter and the sausage and lamb all were delicious and plenty to share between 3! It's a bit out the way but definitely worth looking for, something a bit different and excellent tasting. Servers were extremely helpful and friendly.

    A truly ghastly restaurant experience, my 19yo niece wanted to try this place as she lives nearby (me 60yo), if you fit the hoxton stereotype you will love this place (bog brush beard etc), for anyone else you will be ignored by the waiting staff unless you kick up fuss, we did and waiter took great delight in making sure our meal experience was a miserable as possible, how can it take 20 mins to put humous on the table, when next door table arrived later than us had starter and were onto mains before our humous arrives, oh forgot mention they all had bog brush breads, please dont encourage this facist mentality, oh and they promised our bill would be reduced as we spent so much time complaning, it wasnt of course, by which time we had lost the will to live and just wanted out of restaurant,my advice dont go here unless you under 40yo or preparted to grow bog brush neard.

    We arrived at 2:00pm for brunch but all of the meat had gone, they then added lamb chops from the other menu. I did not have an issue with the extra cost, but I do think it should have been mentioned when we ordered rather than when we received the bill. The service was excellent, with updates of when our table would be ready & drink refills at the bar. Fabulous Middle East flavours.

    I have been meaning to go to Berber & Q for a while and per chanced upon it last night. The staff were super friendly and efficient, especially considering the high volume of customers. I have not been a massive fan of drinking cocktails in recent years but had a couple tonight and was pleasantly surprised at the depth of flavour and combinations- very satisfying. As someone who doesn't eat a lot of meat this place is full of it. However even if you are avoiding it there are still plenty of meat free options. All of which are delicious. And I would know. I ate them all! The artichokes were to die for. The babaganoush with the pomegranates was as refined as they come and completely delectable. I forego the cauliflower dish as I am bored of hearing about them but I did try it when my companion prompted me to and had to swallow my prior conceptions as it was deee-licious! Weird fact of my visit was, despite the food being great, I really enjoyed my little getaway trips to the loo which literally felt like getaway trips to souks in morocco where the lighting levels change and authentic Berber music plays. Very atmospheric. 100% recommend a visit here whether you're a meat eater or not. It's great

    My husband loves Jay Rayner's restaurant reviews so we decided to try this one as his recommendation was pretty good. We managed to get a table just after 6:30 and had a cocktail whilst perusing the menu. Not a big restaurant and at the end you can see the chefs in the open kitchen. High ceilings and with loud music playing it was not so easy to hear each other. Our choice of food was the rib of beef, 6 chicken wings, shawarma, roast cauliflower and the smoked aubergine. The rib of beef was quite tender, the shawarma was quite dry and although the wings were spicy they were not plump or juicy. The cauliflower was a tad overcooked and the aubergine was very nice. The food did not really knock our socks off and we left feeling a little disappointed.

    I am vegetarian - I sat at the bar a witnessed that meat and veg are cooked on the same grill - this includes any veg that is basically charred.... My meat eating friend thought it was great - I would deter strict vegi people from going unless you dont mind and then its entire up to you.

    The restaurant is situated under a railway arch just off the Kingsland Road, beside the Regents Canal and near Haggerston overland train station. We chose it based on some reviews and because it was not far from an urban walk we were doing. We arrived at around 1,30pm and the restaurant was fairly full though luckily there were a few tables free as it doesn't take bookings (though we were later told by our waitress that they will add your name to a list and give you an estimated time if you want to wander around until a table becomes free). We both had the full Israeli meal - a nice selection of Mediterranean food that is different from the normal Sunday brunch offerings. There was a nice selection - home made Hummus, honeyed feta, a nice fresh salad with pomegranate, soft boiled eggs, avocado, tahini, a very tasty yogurt with date syrup and tahini, roasted beets and marinated mushrooms served with warm pita bread. Service was friendly and quick and putting a bottle of water on the table as you sit down was a good touch. The only downside for us was that they only did turkish coffee which was fine but not to my wife's taste (she is very much a cappuccino drinker). The bill for both of us with a coffe and including service was just over £30 for a different and enjoyable Sunday brunch.
