The Berber & Q Food Group is currently made up of three London-based restaurants and a pop up in Ibiza. Our journey began back in 2015 with our fire and smoke shop, Berber & Q Grill House in Haggerston, closely followed by Shawarma Bar, our rotisserie and mezze joint nestled on Exmouth Market. Our most recent venture has led us West, bringing Eastern Mediterranean flavours to the Queens Park neighbourhood with Carmel opening in November 2021.
Our menus take inspiration from pretty much anywhere we can find it, but with a bias towards the ingredients and flavours of the Middle East, North Africa and across the Ottoman. We favour vegetables as much as meat and fish, we like our wines natural and our cocktails with a kick.
We cook over live fire because it makes food taste better. We love simple, honest cooking with loud colours and big, bold flavours. This also comes across in our laid-back hospitality and our unique atmospheric settings, both of which will welcome you when you open our doors.
