"...there’s no pot-bashing, no forced bonhomie, just the creation of wonderful food brimming with riotous flavour. Radical, huh?" READ REVIEW

"This is not food for the uptight, but for people who live life to the full. On my midweek visit, every seat was taken by 6.15pm, the atmosphere was electric, the air filled with charcoal smoke, music and laughter. The Barbary: a place to fall joyously, head over heels, lightning-bolts-R-us in love with." READ REVIEW

"It’s actually exciting to be in a restaurant evolving like this, with such passion behind it. If you have to queue, queue. And I say that as the most reluctant queuer in town." READ REVIEW
