I went to Kazbah with a couple of friends and we enjoyed a flavoursome breakfast for 3 persons. Ingredients and presentation were great. However, it's true that may be we expected a bit more quantity of food for a 3 person dish. The waiter was very kind and recommended us what to order.

We were fortunate to secure a table for 2 without a booking on a Friday night (~7pm) and sat by the window and enjoyed the lovely ambiance. Staff were so attentive, friendly and ensured we didn't over-order (as the menu has so many delicious things to try)! Food was wonderfully delectable. They have gluten free options as well. The Casablanca... More

Our first visit and we enjoyed the weekday welcome, without the crowds. Lovely flavoursome and original breakfast options tempted us and we weren't disappointed. Spicy minced lamb; hummus, foul beans and tahini all were good and the frappes were outstanding Love to head back soon..

I love the breakfast banquet for its great diverse range of dishes, anazing flavours and quality as well as the yummy drinks that accompany it. It's great value and in a lovely atmosphere. A great experience in large groups.

Kazbah Balmain has been a favourite of ours for years, the food, the atmosphere and the fantastic wait staff but as happens in life we've been unable to get there for a couple of years. Finally we had the chance to go again. What happened? The restaurant was hardly 3/4 full, the atmosphere was gone, the food was ok and... More
