About Al Sultan

For nearly three decades now, Al Sultan has been treating Mayfair to traditional Lebanese cuisine and hospitality at their premises on Hertford Street. Unlike anywhere else in London, this standout restaurant is family-owned and -operated, and has consistently been ranked as one of the city’s top Lebanese restaurants since its establishment. Open every day of the week for lunch and dinner, Al Sultan invites you to experience Lebanese cooking the way it’s meant to be.

Further Information

Established way back in 1986 by Mr. and Mrs. Wafai, Al Sultan became one of London’s first – and before long, its best – Lebanese dining establishments. Found just moments from Green Park and Hyde Park Corner underground stations, this local legend on Hertford Street is right in the heart of Mayfair, and steps from major sights like Buckingham Palace and the London Library. The restaurant’s gorgeous interior appeals to diners who enjoy the finer things in life, while the home cooked delights on offer draw in comfort-food lovers and local Lebanese emigres looking for a taste of nostalgia. No matter what the occasion, Al Sultan’s upscale Lebanese cuisine is truly exceptional.

A tourist attraction on its very own, Al Sultan is one of the city’s most respected Middle Eastern restaurants. Exuding elegance while staying true to centuries-old recipes and cooking methods, Al Sultan pleases each and every guest. To start, mix and match some of the restaurant’s hot or cold mezze – we recommend the bamieh bizzait (fried okra served with coriander, tomato and garlic), the hummos kawarmah (diced lamb atop a bowl of hummus) or an order of sambousek (pastries stuffed with onions, pine nuts and meat, or with cheese and parsley). Chargrilled delights at this Mayfair landmark include favourites like shawarma and shish taouk, as well as traditional dishes like farruj meshwi (boneless baby grilled chicken) or the dover sole, grilled and served with yellow rice. There are many more mains, sides, salads and desserts to explore, so make your reservation to snag the perfect table at this London legend.

The place is small so it gets very busy at times so i recommend you book online to avoid any dissapointments. Online booking was very easy. The staff were friendly and funny and I felt the service was genuine. The place is beautiful. Myself and wife really enjoyed the food too. I would go there again with family or friends. I believe it seats over 50 people.

Food was EXCELLENT, and service even better. This is a great Lebanese restaurant. We all thoroughly enjoyed our evening at al Sultan, Mayfair, London. We could have not asked for, and gotten, a better experience for dinner. Thanks. We will be back on our next London trip. Mike & Sue English, Austin, Texas, USA

Food is always very good; attentive service and excellent Lebanese wine. The Al Sultan mixed grill is a family favourite: vegetable dishes and good bread make it a healthy meal.

Delicious food and great service. The Moutabel and houmus shwarma are outstanding. Freshly-baked breads are brought to your table at regular intervals to ensure freshness. We have been visiting this restaurant for 25 years as it continues to be the best Lebanese in London.

We turned up to Al Sultan yesterday evening to celebrate a friends birthday. No one came to the door when we arrived to seat is for approximately 5 minutes, so we then proceeded to an empty table for 4 people to seat ourselves. The waiter working last night then very rudely said no that table is not for you and came over and made us move and the whole restaurant was staring at this point. We were to disappointed with the service that we got up and left within 2 minutes of sitting down. Definitely would not return.

Good food, with lovely fresh tastes and lots of variety in the mezzes. Pleasant service, perhaps just a little lacking in atmosphere – though to be fair we were there early and it was filling up around nine o’clock.

Un vrai dîner Libanais, tout est délicieux ! Les pâtisseries sont offertes à la fin du dîner. Nous reviendrons lors de notre prochain passage à Londres.

Friendly staff helped us identify the many vegan-friendly mezze dishes on the menu, and we then shared about eight of these for a delicious lunch full of fresh vegetables and herbs.

Hugh choice on menu. Foods selected were all excellent. Staff polite but somewhat distracted. Requested table away from open doors & windows during booking, which was ignored however this did not distract from experience on this occasion

A very fine and quite nice restaurant in Mayfair. Large selection of mezzes but also of mains. The daily special is a good idea to try new flavours

Al-Sultan provides nice food and good service in a pleasant atmosphere in the heart of Mayfair. There are lots (maybe too many) dishes to choose from.

the service is not organised and they have added stuffed vine leaves to our bill which we have not ordered! However, the location is very nice.
