Kenza

The City is full of restaurants, glamorous and expensive for business men to wine and dine clients. You can't miss them, high up in the skies in the Heron Tower, Duck & Waffle and Sushi Samba. But buried, hidden underground, is a little charming restaurant serving the most flavoursome Middle Eastern food.

You enter to a narrow winding staircase covered with petals. We made our way down to find ourselves in a softly lit, cosy restaurant and were immediately seated in a small comfy booth.

It was quite late and I definitely had worked up an appetite. We ordered and quickly a treasure trove of goodies was brought to our table, hot and cold mezze. One of my favourite meals is when you get to try everything in sight, until you can't physically consume another mouthfull, this was definitely the case.

A feast of meats, freshly baked pitta, homous, tahini, pastry stuffed balls, arabian salads and a whole lot more. The waitress couldn't help but warn us whilst we were ordering that we had ordered a lot. Proudly we finished it all (maybe I shouldn't have been too proud!).


With barely any room for mains we shared a selection of different grilled meat.




We finished with turkish delight, baklava, fresh fruit and mint teas.

It's a great restuarant, for an occasion, family or a date. There's a buzzy atmosphere but it's not too loud that you can't hear eachother. As it gets late it's livened up by belly dancers and arabian music. If you don't fancy a proper meal there's a small bar area you can grab a few drinks and nibbles and if you're looking for something more intimate I'd definitely recommend booking a booth.


You can find them just off Liverpool Street. 
It's very central, great food and atmosphere and not too pricey.
