Came down from Colchester and stayed overnight near Marble Arch in order to try Dalila (as reviewed by Jay Rayner). We arrived a few minutes later than our booking but the staff were very welcoming. The restaurant was quiet to start with but livened up as the evening progressed. We didn't have much experience of Lebanese food, but we were helped to choose a good variety of 7 very tasty mezzes and a fabulous Lebanese red wine. The humus, moussaka & fatoush were particularly good. By the time the main course mixed grill arrived, my wife and I were struggling a bit. Even so, we finished with coffee & mint tea plus a complimentary baklava that melted in the mouth. Overall, lovely staff and a brilliant experience, just wish Dalila was in Colchester.

If you enjoy Lebanese food as I do then Dalila ticks all the boxes for me. The food is delicious, the service delightful and it has a lovely ambiance. The Lebanese wines I tried have been very good indeed and have not cost arms and legs. Very importantly, it's all very affordable. A great addition for Battersea.

A really easy location if you ae in London. Friendly staff- not over-bearing but politely attentive. The range of food is for all tastes. We had the Arayess and Fatayer spinach to start- both delicious- the hint of sumac was a lovely edge. Both served good and hot- clearly freshly prepared. For mains we chose Lahem Meshwi and Farrouji Meshwi. Both really tasty- with rice and small side veg. Our only disappointment was that the plates could be hotter- but that is a personal thing for us and not a comment on the food. The home made Baklava was the nicest we've ever had! Shame the rice pudding had sold out- we will have to go back to try that.

The food and the ambience were top-notch and excellent value! The only slight criticism I have is that the waiting staff were constantly hovering, topping up drinks, etc. I think most people prefer to pour their own wine at their own pace. Also, I don't like to see a service charge automatically added to a bill. But otherwise I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

The food was delicious and the staff extremely welcoming, and helpful. We had a wonderful evening. It would have been great if they offered more than two vegetarian main courses, but the huge number of delicious vegetarian mezze dishes more than made up for it. Very highly recommended.

Absolutely fabulous fresh and tasty food. And the service was brilliant. We couldn't decide what to have but the waiter took time to help us decide. Can't rate the quality of the food and the service high enough. Will most definitely go back again!

Our dining experience at Delila was very good. The service was good. The menu has lots of selection and plenty to please vegetarians and meat eaters. The portions were a good size and the flavours were good and everything was very fresh. It was all-round good value and we'll go back.

The food was tasty but the manager wasn't very welcoming. Was using a taste card on this visit but I'm not sure I would go again as he didn't make the atmosphere feel very relaxed and friendly. The hot & cold meze did sound delicious though!

The food is good (thought not spectacular), the service excellent and the atmosphere quiet and relaxing (so great if you want an intimate chat, less if you're after some buzz). The only thing that was awful was the constant backtrack of Magic FM!

Great staff, amazing mezzes. Our main courses were slow to arrive and although nice, they were not quite as impressive as the mezzes. Lovely place though and would definitely recommend.

Enjoyed the food - varied selection of freshly prepared mezze. However, being the only 2 diners in the entire restaurant (on a Sunday night) did not add to the cheerful atmosphere.
