The food is almost professionally done arab style. The restaurant is located in an area who do not like food that does not contains hot chilli especially people coming from India, Pakistan or even yemenis. Chilli sauce is available and I knew that because I don't like hot chilli on my food.
I'm rating this restaurant for its food and environment. Obviously being located in Coventry rd it is important to be realistic and not expect a posh restaurant like the previous review did.
In the end I would say the food was tasty and beautifully presented from taboule, baba ganoush and shawarma and lots of other arab famous dishes. The restaurant owner is Lebanese himself.
In order to taste arab food I recommend people trying a variety of food instead of sticking with one dish they won't like.
Bader specialise in Lebanese and Arabic cuisine, although they have pasta dishes to cater for vegetarian customers. The place looks like a fast-food joint with an open-front kitchen where customers can see their food being prepared.
We dined in the private family room at the back that is designed for Muslim women, which is a cultural norm. However, the room was dingy, outdated and sticky with filth. The staff were happy to clean the table when this was brought to their attention.
The food was tasty but cold and we were all served at different times, which defeated the object of dining out with friends. Sadly, we left mid-meal when we saw a disturbingly large termite crawling along the wall. When this was brought to the attention of the manager, he offered to seat us elsewhere with a complimentary meal. We declined and left without paying.
I had a chance to go to this place today. Was expecting something special but it was just ok. The seatings are ok. seperate area for families and non smokers. Not too much choice of food. The food tasted more like asian than lebanese or turkish. The price is high for what they are offering. Did'nt enjoy the food at all or the environment. Maybe they need to get some training from proper middle eastern cooks.
