My mother and I came across this restaurant on the only rainy evening during this sweltering hot summer. We ducked in when we saw that it was a Lebanese restaurant and watched the food being prepared at the counter. This is where we chose to sit. After a warm welcome we perused the extensive menu and settled on Shwarma and Fatoush. The warm flatbreads were crying out for houmous, a quick request and this was at our side in minutes. Beautifully creamy and topped with lamb, this was the perfect accompaniment to our meal. We were defeated by the large portion, or maybe our eyes were to big for our stomachs. The lovely manager came over with a serving of baklava and a chat. We discovered that he lived and worked in Abu Dhabi at the same time as my parents, in a restaurant they frequented, Such a small world. The lovely atmosphere and the food bought back wonderful memories of fabulous times. We finished our meal with a serving of fresh fruit and a complementary pot of mint tea. We will definitely be visiting again next time we are in London. Highly recommended!

I can not believe the service I’ve had from this restaurant. Spent £47 on 5 dry wraps through Deliveroo, one of which was the “Hummus shawarma” and consisted of 3 flatbreads still in the supermarket cellophane, a box of lamb and a box of hummus (see photos). For £8. Not only that but the owner was belligerent and rude, and hung up on me when I asked for a refund. No sauces on anything, dry meat, dry rice. Do not recommend.

Another nice meal at this busy, friendly tasty place. Food comes in big portions, very well flavoured with traditional dishes you expect in a Lebanese restaurant.
Food very well cooked, freshest ingredients, tasty, flavoursome. Not greasy cuts. The lamb is to die for, falls off the bone. The aubergine stew just delicious. All in all recommended and will go again

This was the first time my wife and I had eaten Lebanese cuisine. We were in London with friends who have been here many times and enjoyed it so we went along for a new experience.
We were not disappointed as the food and flavours were excellent. A very enjoyable evening was had by all. Service was excellent.
