This restaurant is very average. It looks great on the outside and the food is ok. The shisha lounge is very loud and is disturbing when you are out with family. If it is a last resort it would be fine. The pricing is fine and the service is ok too.

I booked a dinner here for 30 of my friends, and was delighted when I arrived to see we had our own section of the restaurant. This meant we didn't have to worry about being too loud, as we knew we would not be disturbing anyone else. The food was absolutely lovely, and such good value!! Thank you- we will... More

I was there with a group of more than 20 people and the experience was by far the worst I ever had in my life in a restaurant. We had a set meal that we were force to share, worth less than 5 pounds, consisting in a bit of rice and chicken. Half way through the meal we were force... More

Temple lounge is one of the best Lebanese restaurants in Oxford. Staff are extremely friendly and always provide good service. Would recommend to anyone who is visiting Oxford for a nice time with their friends.

shown to our table quickly, the menu is extensive with choices of Lebanese, Indian and European dishes. Food came in good time and was excellent.The Farruj Meshwi is much better than Nando's chicken. Great desserts available as well. Our waiter was attentive and very friendly I'm glad there's a place that sells authentic Lebanese food in Oxford, will definitely be... More

What an astonishing (pleasant) surprise and alternative oasis this place is! Went for the first time this week with a group of several guys who meet regularly for dinner in restaurants in & around Oxford. When one of the group had suggested eating here, I was somewhat incredulous. I'd walked past the place many times (as I live in the... More
