Awesome Lebanese wine list. Superb food. Service was attentive and it's clearly a family affair. Had 3 starters and one main between two. Loved it all.

Super yummy and authentic Lebanese food! The hummous and mujadarah is amazing and the pita bread is fresh and hot! Highly recommend if you haven't had lebanese food!

My wife and I had a wonderful meal and dining experience. We ate only from the mezza and everything was delicious. The bread is baked fresh. The service was friendly and we got a free after dinner drink and sweets. There was a good selection of wines. The atmosphere was quite, the lighting perfect. The price was above average, but so was the food. As stated in other reviews, we did get charged a £2 cover each for eating from the starters. We knew this from reading orher reviews, but there is no warning about it. It's something to be aware of, and the only negative we have. I don't see why they bother with this charge. All it does is upset customers. We never felt the rudeness described by others in there reviews. We would definitely go back again for a good Lebanese meal.

I've been going to Al Waha for years and never got disappointed. Good always good, atmosphere great. The waiters could be more attentive but it was a busy night so it's understandable.

The owner was not nice at all! I thought that he was trying to increase the prices for us and he was acting very weird! We have ordered 5 set menus for 21£ each the food was not enough at all as he was telling the waiters to reduce the portions and as I understand Arabic I could hear their conversations but I just did not want to leave or talk to him in front of my guests. He kept coming to ask if we want to order more and we ended paying 200 £ for 5 people!! The food is very nice and fresh, service is good and waiters are very kind but cant help it with this horrible owner...

Very pleasant dining experience, my only criticism would be that the starter/appetiser portions were a little too large and that there was only one vegetarian option for the main course (plenty to choose from on the hot and cold starters but, as I stated, they were very large).

We had the £26 set menu and there was more food than we could manage as the portions were generous. The mezza would probably have been sufficient for lunch. Our favourites were the fattoush and souk.
