Our journey began in 2015 with Berber & Q Grill House, a fire and smoke shop in Haggerston. This was soon followed by Shawarma Bar, our rotisserie and mezze joint nestled on Exmouth Market. In November 2021, we expanded westward, bringing Eastern Mediterranean flavours to the Queen's Park neighbourhood with Carmel. Our boldest venture yet came in spring 2024, when we extended the brand with Carmel Fitzrovia, opening just a stone’s throw from Oxford Street.

Our menus draw inspiration from a broad range of sources, with a special focus on the ingredients and flavours of the Middle East, North Africa, and the Ottoman Empire. We give as much attention to vegetables as we do to meat and fish, favour natural wines, and craft cocktails with a kick.


Cooking over live fire enhances the taste of our food, and we are passionate about simple, honest cooking that features vibrant colours and bold flavours. This philosophy extends to our laid-back hospitality and the unique, atmospheric settings of our venues, both of which await you when you step through our doors.


Berber & Q; The Cookbook was published in May 2018 and contains 120 recipes from the restaurants and beyond, including the signature cauliflower shawarma, as well as the now legendary Berber & Q hummus. Lots of barbecued classics, perfect for sharing and pairing in different combinations.

The follow up, Berber & Q; On Vegetables was released in May 2022 and includes countless options for how to cook every type of veg, from a quick scorch in the pan and a flash of heat from the grill, to a low and slow roast, as well as methods for how to season and flavour using simple marinades, dustings of spice and deliciously moreish sweet and sour dressings.
