Further Information

Yamal Alsham’s Chelsea outpost (the other is in London’s Knightsbridge) has found a home in the fast-growing riverside Imperial Wharf development north of Sands End and south of Chelsea Harbour down the Boulevard, just off Townmead Road. It’s a great location for the restaurant – well-connected to the rest of the city and complete with outdoor seating under heaters for an after-dinner shisha or al fresco dining when the weather’s fine. Inside, Yamal Alsham is pure Middle Eastern luxury, with a finely tuned sense of Arabic charm setting the scene for the Syrian and Lebanese cuisine on offer.

Yamal Alsham in Chelsea boasts a comprehensive menu of Middle Eastern dishes, with an emphasis on the delicacies of Syria and Lebanon. Perhaps the best introduction to this southwest London Arabic restaurant is the set menu for two that comes with a complimentary bottle of house wine for an incredible price. No less than seven mezze platters, with a vegetarian option if you wish, include hummus, tabbouleh, stuffed vine leaves, falafel, makanik, spicy batata harra potatoes, cheese sambousek, and delicious grilled kafta and taouk with baklava, coffee or tea to finish. Book for the weekend and be treated to live Middle Eastern music and dancing for a really authentic evening out.

We went in the afternoon so it was quiet. It is in a very luxurious location at the Chelsea Harbour. The restaurant could take a lot of diners so imagine it is very busy at night and noisy with the entertainment as well. There are loads of waiters so you get excellent service. We thoroughly enjoyed our mezze feast and couldn't finish them all ! They add service but it is very small so I gave them more. Would definitely recommend for an enjoyable experience

We had a fantastic meal using a wowCher which entitled us to an 11 course meze between 2. There was beautiful food and the waiters were at hand to keep topping up your bread and water. Unfortunately we couldn't finish it all and when we asked if we could take the rest away they didn't allow us as we used wowcher. I'm not quite sure why that made a difference but neverthanless I would definitely recommend!

Fantastic foods in a fantastic location. Friendly staff with the eagerness of providing great serving. We made 1 hour journey to reach there- from east London, and our journey was successful. It was too much foods for 3 of us we ordered. We have planned for a Whole Lamb Feast party. So we will visit soon again.

Great hospitality, the staff were very friendly. The decor is amazing ooh and the lovely warm bread they give complimentary is to die for. I would suggest the lamb shank with rice! Amazing and big portions I was stuffed. Went with my 2 nieces and they fully enjoyed. Next time I want to try the shisha.

we were sat right at the front with the door wide open and a cold breeze. We could'nt move in closer as there was a private function going on. Whoever, our waiters were very friendly and explained the dishes to us as they came out. The food seemed very rushed but I think that is the way they server their food as there are lots of small dishes. I would go again as we all enjoyed the food.

Very nice food and a great atmosphere. Good food and the very efficient service was welcome. You can't go wrong with 7 pound cocktails. We didn't bother with the discount as it was very reasonably priced. Also great belly dancing😀

Excellent food. The live music was nice and the dancing entertaining. If your looking for a quiet conversation with your dining partner this is not the place for you as the volume of the music is loud.

The food is very tasty, and i am going there a lot, normally the staff is very friendly but this time one waiter was quite rude to my friend, but otherwise all good! Once the guy was not dealing with us anymore everything was good!

Food was lovely, and plentiful and service was mostly great. Only downside was having to specifically ask for the set menus that comprised the offer we booked under.

I ordered 6 Wowcher for 12 people for an 11 course tasting platter. Over the phone they said all booked in okay, don't worry, just turn up. I even booked on line. It was a birthday surprise for my wife and the immediate family. When i got there, the manager insisted that i order a main course and that's how the deal works. Nowhere in the Wowcher it mentions this, not even under the 'Important Information' listed this. It cost me an extra 105 pounds plus service charge. Not going back there again.. food and service was great! but they're coning unsuspecting diners. Neat trick if can say so, Yamal Alsham.

We waited 1 hour for our food and no body updated us in what's happening all you have to say is sorry the food is going to take a little longer nothing more. U should expect a better service with the prices they charge. The location is very nice

All is terrible about this restaurant, don't go! Super rude service too! They try to upsell and insist that you spend more money, there are a lot better Lebanese restaurants in Chelsea and Knightsbridge.

Very poor slow service. Had the 11 course menu from Groupon but was mainly veg dishes, not typical Lebanese afrair. Good for the price but not exceptional.
