In the heart of London’s Little Beirut, on the southern stretch of Edgware Road and withing minutes of both Paddington station and Marble Arch underground, Beirut Cafe proudly flies the flag for sumptuous Lebanese and Middle Eastern cuisine. Competition is stiff in this part of central London, with many restaurants and shisha bars to choose from. But, open from breakfast (superb shakshouka) until late at night, Beirut Cafe is ideal for your daily warm-up or nighttime pitstop kebab. There are also no less than ten lunchtime meal deals to choose from (and by lunch we mean a generous window of 11am until 5pm), but be sure to book to beat the crowds of locals and workers rushing to grab a seat.
The service was great, we felt really well taken care of. The starters mezze plate was a bit tricky to maneuvre as one person was vegan and it was not immediately clear what was suitable and what not... Mains were huge, and tasty, no-one was left hungry. We hadn't done our research so were surprised no alcohol was served, but it was not a problem.
The staff here are very attentive and friendly. The food is great and we were given several complimentary starters and desserts which we thought was very generous. The food is very fresh and the flavours are spot on but the lamb kebab I ordered was slightly tough, my only complaint. I would definitely go back to this restaurant.
A most friendly cafe/restaurant. The lunch time menu was comprehensive and the food very tasty. Although there is no alcohol, this was not missed. Turkish coffee was ‘Turkish’ coffee. Overall a very enjoyable experience. Will go again.
