The restaurant is cosy and the staff very friendly offering to make any adjustments to the menu that is requested. The food is superb and freshly prepared. It was a delightful experience that I will repeat as soon as possible.

Fantastic service and food as always. Great local restaurant and quality of cooking throughout. I cannot fault the food or service. The best falafel we have ever had.

We were rather a big party so I was so glad they accommodated us on Friday evening. Their recommendation of the food was spot on, everything was so tasty and we enjoyed the whole atmosphere very much. Thank you!

I am never disappointed when I visit Orjowan. I visit a lot of Lebanese restaurants around London and Orjowan is on my top 5 restaurants to eat at. Would definitely recommend, its relaxed, friendly, they don't rush you and the food is full of flavour.

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.

I visited Orjowan again after 3 years with high expectation. This visit with a group of 9 people did not disapoint us! Brilliant food. Original and cosy. Recommend highly. Will definitely come again.

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.
