Food, ambience, service and hospitality was exceptional......Falafel, fattoush, hummus and cake were delicious. Kabir served us and he was very polite. I would surely like to go back to this place.
The last time we tried to go to Souk, they had a freak health hazard the day before, closed down for the week and canceled our reservation. So this was a much awaited meal for me. Hummus easily features in my top 10 foods list so this rare restaurant that specializes in Mediterranean cuisine was already winning. Our mezze choices were hummus (duh) and the warm spinach salad. Long lost and familiar both at once, I devoured the hummus which was served with an assortment of pita bread. The only problem was that it wasn't a bottomless pit :D I didn't know what to expect from the salad. It came looking like a regular plate of greens but once lovingly tossed by the maitre'd, it became a totally different, wonderful dish. A must have. Main course was moussaka and b'stille, both good dishes but with tiny portions. They also had similar flavor profiles. Our drinks were passable. Henceforth, I should remember to just skip them because once the food arrives, I find that they inevitably become an afterthought. The service was impeccable. Due to it being my birthday, they were very sweet and got us a fantastic chocolate cake. But the food was what was memorable. PS: Did you know Lebanese/Eastern Meditteranean cuisine has stuff like pasta?!

Babaghanush, Hummus must try over here. Great service. A complete five star experience. 💯 Ambience is well match with the type of cuisine they serve. Calcutta needs more of these restaurants to open up so as to change the genre of food Bengali's try and like. Thank you.
