Walking into Tabun Kitchen, which offers Jerusalem street food, it's notable that a lot of effort has been put in to making the venue feel close to its roots.
Its dark, small and features expensive furniture along with luxury cutlery and interesting paintings are spread around the venue.
And the nice, comfortable atmosphere is helped in no small part by the hugely friendly service.
It was, however, disappointing that the drinks menu lacked any Middle Eastern wine which is something, you might imagine, would be included at a Middle Eastern restaurant.
That said, there are cocktails that tailor to its origins and the las condes merlot (£8.80) was very impressive.
The food menu is vast, with no less than 12 starters, so after lengthly analysis my friend and I chose the grilled halloumi (£5.50) and the Jerusalem falafel (£5).
The falafel - with an onion centre and tahini-tossed aubergine salad - is exceptionally presented and crisp which, although at times it feels a little too dry, does make for a pleasant starter.
Meanwhile the halloumi offered a more flavoursome choice, with its cabbage salad a welcome combination with the cheese.
Onto the main menu, which was equally vast with 17 choices, my friend and I chose the lamb three ways (£14) and the chicken grill (£14).
The lamb dish offers up marinated filler, lamb kofta, spicy shat'ta and a very impressive garlic sauce while the chicken grill, not too dissimilar, comprised chicken kofta, shish taouk, spicy shat'ta and toum garlic sauce, again very good.
Both are tasty but I wouldn't recommend to anyone who doesn't like their meat to taste slightly dry, although a complex range of flavours and spices does provide balance.
I was pleasantly surprised to see Casablanca (£4) on its beer menu, a terrific beer I remember drinking when I was in Morocco last year and haven't found since.
On to dessert and I chose the muhalabia (£5) - containing rose scented milk pudding, crushed pistachios and orange blossom honey, a neat combination of flavours to cap the evening.
There's something about Tabun Kitchen that could turn it into a cult hit in London, especially among the Middle Eastern community.
Dishes are carefully thought out and the sheer range of food on offer is impressive, made more startling by the fact that there's a comprehensive take-away option too.
The dishes my friend and I had were a little dry but, as the name suggests, food is dedicated to Jerusalem street food and is admirably devoted to serving up the authentic experience.
