With two restaurants in London, The Cedar is well versed in serving up delicious Lebanese cuisine, and their branch on Fernhead Road is the place to go for mouthwatering mezze, grilled meats, seafood and other Middle Eastern favorites in West Hampstead. Whether you want to chow down on a shawarma sandwich, tuck into some shakshouka or indulge in some delicious grilled meat like the farrouj meshwi (baby chicken marinated with garlic and lemon). Vegetarians will find plenty of choice too, from falafel sandwiches to an array of mezze plates like halloumi and kibbeh yakteen (deep fried pumpkins and crushed wheat shells filled with seasoned spinach and chickpeas). To guarantee a table at The Cedar, make a reservation in advance!
Great restaurant with a wide choice of authentic dishes. The portions are generous and prices reasonable, the service is very attentive and it's normally quite easy to get a table mid-week. I thoroughly recommend it!
Delicious and fresh food, mellow atmosphere, and close to public transportation. Generous serving portions! A good place to entertain guests or just unwind. Highly recommended.
Always a great experience with warm, attentive staff. It is our favourite local for family dinners. The food is moorish and one never needs to wait long to tuck in.
