More about Al Sultan, London

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.

Delicious food, pleasant ambiance and good service. We have eaten here many times over the last 20-odd years and have always enjoyed an excellent meal. This time we enjoyed some hot and cold mezes, Lebanese house wine, salad, fruit and baklava. We will return next time we are in London.

Had a quick lunch with an old friend, both of us are fans of Lebanese food and ordered the Lamb Shawarma. Excellent food and service. Couldn't wish for better.
