When it comes to lebanese cuisine, I’m hard to please. I’m happy to announce that my experience at Nay was more than pleasing. The ambience is absolutely stunning in the evenings, with dark lighting and lovely drinks and appetisers. Speaking of which here’s what we ordered:
- Espresso Martini
- Lentil Kibbeh
- Hummos Red
- Some sort of sesame zaatar flat bread (I’m sorry, terrible memory skills, people!)
- Chicken Kibbeh
- Halloumi Cheese
Yes, these are all appetisers as we got sunk in to the lovely options and it was an afternoon of homemade Mac n Cheese the same day. Yeah, imagine that, we still managed to eat loads and experience the Nay cuisine. And here’s what I love about it, it has a punch. It can be tricky maintaining the traditional Lebanese flavours for an audience like that, but Nay managed to make an impact and stand out.
When it comes to food, the exceptional starter for the evening goes to Lentil Kibbeh. They were an absolute delight. I could eat a load of them everyday. The Hummos had a spicy kick to die for (Do try their hummos if you’re visiting Nay for the first time).
The Muttabal and Fattoush had clean and crisp flavours and the sesame zaatar flat bread was a lovely accompaniment.
My last but not the least fav was Chicken Kibbeh. Simple and yum. Probably the only un-fav was the Halloumi Cheese. Don’t get me wrong the flavours were still great, just the cheese itself was a bit to chewy for my liking.
All in all, I’d rate Nay a 9. The staff, the ambience and of course the food are worth it all.
