We were born in an old taxi repair shop in 2015, housed in the most beautiful converted railway arch in Haggerston which became Berber & Q Grill House.
Then we bought a camper van, removed one of the wheels, turned it into rotating kebab spit, and set out in pursuit of the perfect shawarma. Berber & Q Shawarma Bar opened on Exmouth Market in July 2016.
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 kick ass.
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.
