Praise for The Palomar:
“The talk of the town”
The Financial Times, Nicholas Lander

"The Palomar is one of those places where you just want to order everything on the menu."
Evening Standard, Rebecca Seal

"The Palomar is culturally exciting, culinarily exhilarating and run by people whose passion is evident with every interaction."
Londonist, Ben Norum
"It’s one of those rare restaurants that takes well-known ingredients and dishes, and tweaks them, gently and subtly, to create something altogether more marvellous."
Daily Mail, Tom Parker Bowles

"The jars of Jerusalem-style truffle oil-laced polenta are death row-dinner good." 
Evening Standard, Grace Dent
"Here's something the jaded critic doesn't get to say very often. I've been to a new restaurant, and it's different. A curious, crazy one-off, where the chefs and owners are having as much fun as the customers, the menu brims with bountiful Middle Eastern maximalism, and the music rocks nearly as hard as the food." 
Independent, Tracey Macleod
"Middle Eastern fireworks."
The Times, Giles Coren
"maybe the most interesting restaurant experience out there."
Evening Standard, David Sexton
