About Ceru South Kensington

SquareMeal Review

Bronze Award

Serial restaurateur Barry Hilton is behind this mid-range, all-day celebration of Levantine cuisine. It's a casual, vibrant option borne out of a series of pop ups around London, set in a colourful and cosy space. You can go for a casual bite on a stool alongside the open kitchen, or grab a booth and make a meal of grilled meat, seafood, salad and veggie options, served sharing-style in small portions. With the feel of a chain-in-waiting, Ceru presents the odd quirk (there's afternoon tea with Middle-Eastern ingredients) but predominantly plays it safe with flavours and ideas. Having said that, the signature lamb shoulder steak arrives doused in a punchy, 12-spice sauce which arrests the taste buds, while the pancar (roasted beetroot dip with pistachio crumbs) provides a delicious tangy alternative to the omnipresence of hummus in Middle-Eastern restaurants. Keen pricing, generous portions and a kids’ menu ensure Ceru's likeability, while Greek, Turkish and Lebanese wines by the glass invite experimentation.

What a pity .....
08 July 2017
This was a third visit for my vegan friend and myself. We love the food and for him there are a good selection of dishes. I had booked a table on line. Had tried to book form7 pm but was only offered 6.30 or 7.30. We were welcomed, looked after very well by the waitress and a waiter. The Italian maitre d' was attentivemand asked if, apart from the noise from a large party we were happy. We said yes. We had,drinks, shared six dishes and I also,had a dessert. We were in animated conversation when suddenly the person in charge without uttering a word, firmly slammed down on the table what turned out to,be the bill. My friend and I looked at each other, looked at our watches and heard two people at another table being told they could move to our table. My friend arrived fifteen minutes late And we were, without a polite request or suggestion, being turfed out after less than two hours. What an unpleasant and hasty end to a lovely meal.

Great place, delicious food!

Our visit to CERU was a highlight. Very rarely can you not find fault with something, but here for us it was a perfect meal. We had small mezze dishes to share between two of us and we order almost everything on the menu. Our favourites were lamb shoulder, merguez chicken, squid and grilled haloumi. Cocktails are great too and prices incredibly low! We will be returning, such a brilliant place and beautifully design too.
