The food was lovely and reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and made us feel so welcome. I will definitely be going back to try another dish from their tempting menu. Next time I’ll leave room for some baklava! Highly recommended.

Delicious food, really friendly staff, relaxed setting. I had the chicken mixed grill and it was all freshly cooked, well marinaded and full of flavour. The breads are handmade and come all puffed up at first - fresh from their kiln. Most recommended.

Fabulous meal! Tasty, very reasonable pricing and fantastic service. Warm and friendly staff who went out of their way to look after us. Highly recommended, could not fault it. We even got a free starter to share while we ordered and a free pudding. Fabulous!

Having had a bad experience with Lebanese food in London, unhelpful staff and poor food, I had always wanted to try it again hoping it was a one off. I wasn't disappointed this time. The staff are attentive and friendly and the food was great, very tasty - spicy flavours without the heat. Definitely would go again.

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. There was a lively buzz in the restaurant but we had someone who is hard of hearing in our group who simply couldn't.t make out what anyone was saying, the music adds atmosphere but was a little loud when there were so many people talking and having a good time. I would definitely return.

the service was fantastic and food amazing. This was my first visit to a Lebanese restaurant and was certainly not disappointed - delicious. Would be better if alcohol was served but not sure if this is due to religious views etc regardless food was stunning !

The atmosphere was excellent. Also beautiful decor. The food was very delicious. Do take into account that there is a 10% price-bound service fee on top of the price of your dish. I certainly recommend paying a visit to this restaurant and enjoy the food!

Delicious, unpretentious, honest food, of excellent quality, if a little on the big side. The hummus was the creaminess, smoothest, and richest I've ever had, while the shawarma was succulent and seasoned to perfection.

The food was good and also be ready as you will get surprised by the bonus dessert and free mint teas. We really enjoyed it. Will definitely recommend others to try this restaurant.
