best lebanese food your money can buy anywhere in London. The only reason I dod not give it 5 stars is because the service was not up to par.

Brilliant menu, excellent food and very good choice for vegetarians. Booking is recommended as the restaurant is very busy. Service is exceptional and everyone is very friendly and will ensure your trip is an memorable one.

We had our first Lebanese food experience and it was great!! The staff was great! We ask for a lot of explanation and we receive a really kind service! We had little bit of everything and we really enjoy it! We'll definitely come back again! Great value for money!

While we have eaten Lebanese food previously This was our first time eating at a Lebanese restaurant and it was quite simply amazing. We were greeted and looked after by Mohammad who made the experience even more enjoyable.

We went with some friends, one of them is half Lebanese. He ordered for all of us, we tried different dishes and all of them were delicious! Flavours are authentic, portions are ok, but we were really stuffed at the end! We spent 180£ and it was 5 of us, certainly not an entry level restaurant, however you can really... More

This restaurant is everything you expect from a Lebanese restaurant, apart from the fact that the staff were not Lebanese. The menu is rich and nicely served with a good choice. We were a group of five, and all the dishes were served so that they could be shared. Don't miss the opportunity of tasting the Lebanese wine from Bekaa... More
