Quite honestly the best meal we’ve had in an awfully long time. Come to Kazoomies the food is magnificent.
Yes, it’s difficult to believe a superlative laden statement in the hyperbolic world of internet reviews. We are all most likely to be motivated to post a review only after experiences at the extremes of the spectrum. And i am no different, though this really was an exceptionally good feed.
Ottolenghi opened our eyes, and mouths, to the delights of Mid Eastern and North African cuisine. Kazoomies food is the finest example of the style i am yet to have had the pleasure of sampling. The Shakshuka and Falafel are as good as everyone says they are. And the kitchen produces desserts with as much flair and variety as the savouries. The servings are well sized, but next time I'll order of the tapas style menu just to try more of the morsels on offer.
The wait staff, though clearly busy, were friendly and went about their tasks in a calm, purposeful manner. Allowing the relaxed environment to be precisely that. And when we interrupted Mr Khazoom -whilst he concluded an interview with a prospective employee- he accepted our compliments with warmth and good humour of one whom, seemingly, embodies the vibrant conviviality that is suggested by his food. And a quick read of their website indicates the establishment’s genuinely felt commitment to environmental and social values.
My mouth is watering in anticipation of my next visit. Thank You Kazoomies from the bottom of our bellies to the tip of our tongues.
