Situated on a picturesque street of Notting Hill, akub is a Palestinian restaurant celebrating the rich diversity of ingredients and culinary traditions from the region, while working with locally sourced British ingredients.
Palestinian hospitality is best experienced around an abundant tawla, a dining table with sharing plates offering the flavours and fragrances of the coast, the olives and figs of the Mediterranean terroir and the preservation methods of the desert.
Akub, also known as cardoon, is a seasonal flowering thistle that embodies the essence of Palestine.
Chef Fadi Kattan creates cuisine that honours Palestine’s best produce with a modern twist. He reinterprets traditional Palestinian dishes while preserving the memory of their fragrance and flavour. He has become an authority and an ambassador for contemporary Palestinian cuisine.
Chef Fadi partnered with entrepreneur Rasha Khouri who has always focused her activities in supporting business opportunities to promote the region.
With a curated menu, balancing traditional flavours of the Middle East and creative influences, akub offers an array of seasonal dishes celebrating vegetables and herbs, fish and meat locally sourced and translated into Palestinian tastes. From fresh coriander and dill to pickled cucumbers and roasted aubergines, slow-cooked lamb and skate kufta in vine leaves, our team will guide you across a dining experience on the paths of Palestine.
Along with a selection of natural and classic wines, akub also offers beer, arak and other spirits from Palestine.
Signature cocktails champion key Palestinian ingredients. The Qamarideen Dreaming uses apricot leather cultivated in the region, and Dalia’s Delight showcases the versatility of arak, the oldest distilled alcohol in the world, here shaken with mint, lime, gin and ice.
Akub restaurant offers three varied spaces that can cater for a variety of events. From a business lunch to a special dinner, we are able to accommodate your party. We can tailor our menus for both seated and standing events.
