Time Out says
It's all about authentic Mediterranean cooking at this classy-looking Kensington High Street newcomer, with the focus firmly on speciality pittas that really do look like the real deal. Don't be surprised to be invited in for a free taster – these guys seem keen to get the word out.
Those pittas play host to a hefty range of toppings and fillings, from sea bass with preserved lemon, tzatziki, spicy tomato salad and rocket to shakshuka, chargrilled lamb with tahini, chicken schnitzel with houmous, and sabih – a pita wrapped snuggly around fired aubergine, potato, egg, tahini, tomato, parsley, pickled cucumber and red cabbage. Sides (all vegan) include chargrilled broccoli, houmous and roasted sweet potato.
There's a solid selection of beer and wine available, as well as a range of homemade soft drops that include orange and carrot, ice tea and pomegranate and lemon. Keep an eye out for desserts, too – we've heard good things about their chocolate cake.

Fantastic food! Avi and his team is doing a really great job. One of the best places to try out Mediterranean food in Kensington. A must visit if you happen to be around Kensington High Street
By far one of the best places to grab a real authentic great food with a twist!
Staff members were amazing, as soon as we walked in they offer us a drink(on the house of course) the open kitchen add to the vibe of the place and the chef was super friendly - we were asking so many questions regarding the food and flavours, and the meaning behind the name of the place and he answered all our questions (while cooking haha)
We ended up going back there twice in five days!
Thank you MELABES 👌🏻
