    ““Rotana is one of the stars of hip Portobello. If the cookery books of Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi have given you a taste for a falafel sandwich with tahini sauce, or for dolmades, or for chicken shawarma with Lebanese bread and garlic sauce, or for lamb tagine cooked the Lebanese way,then you have to make your way to Mohammed Abuissa’s lovely bright room in the hipster district of Portobello....”
