Imad's Syrian Kitchen - Waiter / Waitress

Location: London
Job type: Full-Time and Part-Time X 3
Salary:  Competitive


Syrian chef Imad Alarnab, has an amazing story. After opening his first restaurant in Damascus in 2000, he steadily built up a small empire of food and juice bars in the city. But by 2014, as the city became more and more war-torn and dangerous, Imad’s empire was gone. He fled Damascus and his country and crossed Europe to the UK. But he never lost his passion for cooking or cooking for others – while living in Calais, he would regularly cook for 40 or 50 people.

After arriving safely in the UK, Imad found work as a car salesman, but over time, he began to dream of running his own restaurant again. Before long, Imad was running successful pop-up restaurants in London which sold out every single night and received rave reviews, the Guardian described his food as “astonishingly good,” and since then Imad has raised over £200k for Choose Love.

After years of pop-up restaurants, supper clubs and falafel bars, Imad has now found a permanent location in Kingly Court, just off Carnaby Street which he is hoping to open this Autumn. In Imad’s own true style, he will continue to fundraise for Choose Love by donating £1 from every bill to the charity.
