Wonderful place, the staff very attentive, personal, and friendly. Being Lebanese I can say the food was superb, and felt like home. Will return next time I am in London.

Booked this restaurant to celebrate a friend's birthday. Very nice range of food at reasonable prices. We enjoyed the Mixed Platter of meat skewers and the grilled chicken wings. One of the pieces was somewhat undercooked, but it didn't stop our enjoyment of this nice, quiet Lebanese based opposite the rather extravagant Blythe House, which is currently home to the V&A archives. Our table host was a newbie and she was doing well, considering the growing crowd in the restaurant on a Saturday night! They gave us complimentary olives and Baklawa, which was lovely. Overall, a good experience.

The food was brilliant, great value for money. We had a set menu for 4 people so as to try different things: a very good decision. The service was a bit slow. It's a family-managed restaurant and there was only one single waitress for all the restaurant (capacity 20/25 persons).

Seriously AMAZING food. One of best Lebanese I have had. I rate it higher than the famous Maroush. Only thing it lacks a little is atmosphere, lighting is a bit too bright and no gentle background music. Lovely staff too.

As usual, excellent freshly prepared food, by a chef-owner who is passionate about Lebanese food a good Lebanese wine list, served by attentive staff. Reasonably priced and our preferred choice of a Lebsnese restaurant in London

The food was great and the staff were polite, efficient & made the expriance even better. If you plan to eat here make sure you book in advance as they only have about 40 seats.

Fantastic Lebanese food, great variety of starters and the chicken and lamb kebabs are beautifully moist. And I highly recommend fatoush salad. The atmosphere is very relaxing with friendly attentive service.
