This new Palestinian restaurant caused a bit of a stir when it opened in Notting Hill due to not serving halal meats. But Akub is still worth visiting for its refined & innovative approach to modern Palestinian cuisine.

The neighbourhood restaurant, Haya, brings a vibrant taste of the Mediterranean to London Notting Hill. Its menu is influenced by flavours from Tel Aviv and offers unique brunch dishes like pancakes with labneh cream, za’atar & sumac halloumi, tahini bread, etc.
American restaurants seem to like to settle in Notting Hill when opening in London as Buvette is another New York sensation to arrive in the area. The winning item on the menu, in our opinion, was the Belgian waffle, whereas the scrambled eggs were relatively lacklustre. You can check out our full review here.
A little outside the main busy areas of Notting Hill, towards Holland Park direction, is this humble Middle Eastern-inspired brunch restaurant named Bon’s Cafe. They have a cosy and casual atmosphere, and offers hand-roasted specialty coffee, artisan bakes, and a whole range of classic brunch dishes. Popular dishes include their Turkish Eggs, Shakshuka, halal fry-up, etc.
