In 2015, stuck in dead-end jobs running a Grill House over in Haggerston with little prospects and no future, we decided we needed to do something new.
So we bought a camper van, removed one of the wheels and turned it into rotating kebab spit, and set out in pursuit of the perfect shawarma. Our travels took us far and wide, from Green Lanes to Dalston and on to Golders Green. In the end, we came back none the wiser. Such is life.
Everybody has a travel story. Luckily most aren't true.
Berber & Q Shawarma Bar opened on Exmouth Market in July 2016, specialising in rotisserie Middle Eastern meats slow-cooked over charcoal and wood.
We take our influence and inspiration from the streets and cafe culture of Tel Aviv.
Shawarma Bar is open for lunch and dinner every day except Sundays.
We look forward to welcoming you to our restaurant.
The restaurant is available for private hire on Sundays only. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if this of interest.
We also offer gift vouchers for those wanting to send someone to Shawarma Bar for an extra special present. Just fill in the form below and let us take care of the rest.

Please note: We encourage you to visit Berber & Q Shawarma Bar without a reservation as we keep most of our tables available for our walk-in guests.
If there is a wait, we’ll take your name and number at the host stand and call you when the table is becoming available.
We seat parties in the order that they are complete. Incomplete parties or those more than fifteen minutes late may forfeit their reservation.
