SquareMeal Review of Honey & Smoke

Bronze Award

This canteen-like Middle-Eastern grill is a larger follow-up to Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich’s Honey & Co, which is just around the corner. The Israeli couple have collected many fans for their cooking, which is clearly the priority: the room is sparse, functional and stills feels quite like the tiles showroom it once was. A fun crowd of enthusiasts lends it a friendly atmosphere, however. Too-small tables will have you jostling plates which arrive when ready, bringing the likes of burnt celeriac with chilli butter, or octopus grilled with red chillies. Our highlight was a sticky, cool and sweet combination of honey-drizzled charred pears with almond-speckled tahini. A generous portion of baba ganoush with seeded lavoush was fine but tame, as was lamb kofta with a meagre salad. Disorganised, understaffed service needs to be addressed, but Honey & Co's famed baking for dessert sweetens the deal. There’s a small list of interesting European wines, while the set menu offers good value for (very hungry) diners.

Middle Eastern food done as well as it can be.

The service is impeccable, and every single dish that comes out the kitchen is perfectly balanced with flavour.

Refreshingly unpretentious setting in an otherwise gastronomically uninteresting part of central London (Great Portland Street). Tasty, hearty Mediterranean fare. Somewhere vibrant but relaxed to go with family or friends. Attentive service, good value.I imagine a lot of very hard work going into making it feel low key and effortless!
