Overall good food, portions are a bit small for the price. Staff was very inexperienced in 'serving' and made numerous mistakes, the toilets were filthy, so that put me off and most likely won't return again.

We were looking for somewhere to eat near London Bridge and stopped at Arabica, which is a Middle Eastern tapas restaurant right next to Borough Market.
