Brilliant. The best lebanese I've had in years. Friendly service as well. I'll definitely be going back. And I've already told my friends they need to go.

Great menu - lots of hot and cold mezzo. Friendly service. Beautifully presented and authentic Lebanese food. Very reasonably priced. Would definitely return if in the area.

Found this place, just around the corner from Earl's Court Tube. Food seemed very authentic and was one of best middle-eastern restaurants I have found in London.

I have been to Orjowan a few times and the food is always first class. Thank you for another delicious meal that made our Easter weekend in London all the more enjoyable.

Seriously delicious Lebanese food. Generous helpings and a few complimentary treats added. Super friendly waiter and very understanding of our delay in getting there. Only tainted by an annoying tipping system which meant that we paid twice for service. There was a 'service charge' on the bill, which came to 12% added on to the bill. When paying by card, the machine asked if I wanted to add a tip (in addition to the service charge). I asked the waiter to confirm that service was included in the bill, and he said that the service charge was for the owner not for the waiters. He was very nice and polite and said he didn't mind if we didn't tip him, enough so that I would have felt guilty if I had not given him a separate tip, and I couldn't figure out how to get past this second 'tipping step' on the machine anyway, so I added a 10% tip. So, effectively, we paid 22% for service. The food was delicious. The meal was good value. The service was great. It's just a pity that one feels slightly 'had' by the necessity of double tipping like this. And having worked as a waitress in the past myself, I'm sure the waiter was telling the truth when he said that the 'service charge' is not passed onto waiting staff.

We had a really good early evening meal at Orjowan before heading off to a concert. The food was excellent - the manager provided advice on what combination of mezzes would go together which was good. Our only quibble was that the main courses arrived before we had completely finished our starters, so we felt a bit rushed. That was only a minor thing and we would definitely recommend the Orjowan to anyone.

It was a really lovely place, the staff were really quick to seat us. We had a reservation, which I would recommend doing as it looks like it is quite popular (we went on a Friday evening and there often were people queuing throughout the evening). The food was really good and came quickly considering it was very busy. They have a selection of Lebanese wines to choose from and are worth trying. We had a wonderful rosé to go with the food. The staff were really attentive and friendly. It made for a lovely evening. Worth noting that the restaurant is quite small with a lot of tables but not uncomfortably so for myself or the other diner who was with me.

In an area of many restaurants such as Earl's Court, it is difficult to stand out. Orjowan differentiates itself by sticking to Lebanese cuisine and most of its customers when I went there appeared to be those who went for that, including myself. I enjoyed the opportunity to have vegetarian food and enjoyed Lebanese wine to accompany my meal. However, there is significant competition even in the niche of Lebanese restaurants and this was good but did not stand out within that niche. Service was friendly but slack.

A great buzzy restaurant with fabulous Lebanese food of the highest quality. We had a selection of beautifully fresh mezze, all served in generous quantities by friendly, good-humoured staff. The Lebanese wine was excellent and the main courses and desserts were all delicious. We will certainly be back again soon! Thank you Orjowan!

The food at Orjowan is one of the best Lebanese I have had in London. My daughter and I are vegetarian and always share the mezze. My husband and son also like the non-veg menu. The staff is lovely and like the service too. Location convenient also.

We discovered Orjowan on a recent trip to London, and all I can say is we wish we'd discovered it sooner! We received a friendly welcome, attentive service and well-presented, tasty food at a very reasonable price for Central London. We will definitely be back!

We had a fantastic night at Orjowan. The staff and owner were very helfpul (guiding novices through a Lebanese menu isn't easy!), The food was excellent as was the Lebanese Musar Jeune wine. We will defiunitely go there again when visiting London. Fabulous!

The restaurant was almost empty at 1.30pm, which raised doubts. However, we were greeted and treated with excellent hospitality, and the mezze were very good. The fresh mint lemonade was particularly delicious. The only disappointment was that we were not given a bowl of fresh, chilled salad vegetables as an aperitif (and to eat with our hummus and moutabel) as is customary in other Lebanese restaurants I go to regularly. But overall we were very pleased with the food and service, and will certainly return.

A wonderful experience in Orjowan. The food was delicious and the waiter/owner couldn't have been more helpful. He even gave us some of the gorgeous baklava to take home with us. Will def be back.

Fourth time here. Food delicious as always. Lots of variety on the menu and good portion sizes. Not cheap but reasonably priced for this part of London. Negatives: tables very close to each other and too cramped, we were asked a number of times to squeeze in more so people could pass behind us although this was not possible. This was extremely irritating. Bathroom not as clean as it could/ should be.

Excellent food..... but when it came to payment their card machine wouldn't work... which is fine..... but since I had to go and find a cash point and come back to settle the bill I would have though it reasonable to either discount the bill, offer a free drink - or at least waive the service charge!.... shame the customer service didn't match the food.

We went on a Saturday night, and the restaurant was extremely crowded. It was difficult to squeeze past tables or even to take off and put on coats. Most casual would-be diners were fitted in, but some were turned away. The food was fresh and tasty, especially the mezzes, and food arrived in reasonable time. However it took a long time and two reminders to staff to get the tap water we had requested along with our drinks order.

I really enjoyed this very comfortable and cozy restaurant on a side-street off of Earl's Court. The chairs and service were excellent. The food was very good Lebanese style. I had a series of mezzes--hummous with lamb, an okra dish, and a cheeses pastry dish. I enjoyed them all, but the hummus was particularly nice. All in all, I would definitely return here.

The place was nice (white tablecloths and friendly staff). The hummus and taboule, and the chicken skewer were absolutely delicious. The pita was not authentic; it tasted as if made with sweet white bread flour. There are some spare sesame seeds on top, but this was a major letdown for me. We also had the cheese-filled pastry (hot mezze) and one was cold inside. For a place touted as authentic, this was a letdown.

Excellent professional and friendly staff, food and service truly Lebanese, natural like Lebanese home cooked food. We, party of 4, all tried each other's food so I can recommend the lamb and fish sayyediye and kofte. Hommos, taboule all very good. Good to find a Lebanese restaurant in a good district of London. Thank you, we will be back!!

Nice small venue with efficient and friendly staff. Not ideal for a romantic dinner! The food is very nice but I was expecting better given the reviews and having eaten Lebanese in the Middle East. I suspect Saturday night is not the best night to visit. We walked past on the previous evening and the tables were laid out differently and it looked more appealing.

The table wasn't ready when we arrived and the restaurant was packed out, so we went for a drink across the road. We had the set menu. The food was varied and really tasty. Two of the group I went with had never had lebanese food before and really enjoyed.

For a Lebanese restaurant it was on the verge of "ok"; food was acceptable (but expensive for what it was , not the mains but the appetizers/mezzah , and that's what constitutes the backbone of the meal) portions stingy (especially proteins like yoghurt - labneh etc, less than 50gr per bowl when we were charged almost 6 pounds for it) but what was annoying was the Maitre D's arrogant style of service and mood when we ordered (pushing for expensive wine etc), last but not least I've never been to a restaurant in London where we were literally pushed out when we finished our meal (they were collecting glasses whilst we were still sitting down !) Shame ;-(

The good reviews of this place encouraged us to dine here on a Sunday evening. It is a nice little restaurant. The food was ok, but i have eaten much better lebanese food from other establishments, the service was very friendly, a down side was that all the dishes arrived simultaneously and we felt very rushed, finished our meal quickly and left the restaurant - a little disappointed.

Great service. Advice given on portion sizes saved us over ordering. Food was excellent, restaurant very busy, tables not large and with little space between. However this only made the atmosphere more inclusive for the multi-cultural clients. Most enjoyable.
