Venue says: "Bringing authentic Lebanese classics from the East to the West, we are based in the historic Shepherd Market in the heart of Mayfair."

There's an old school, formal sophistication to this Lebanese restaurant on Shepherd Market, with smartly dressed waiters, kitsch ruched curtains, white linen tables and ornate, thick carpeting. Diners fit the Mayfair location, too – expect an international crowd with many a minted Middle Easterner. 

Dishes here range from chilli-infused houmous beyruti with flatbread to badenjan mahshi (baked aubergine stuffed with lamb), shish taouk and kibbeh nayeh, a tartare of seasoned minced raw lamb mixed with bulgur wheat. 

A varied wine list features plenty from Lebanon, served alongside bottles of beer and simple cocktails. Shisha pipes in a number of flavours also feature.

I'v been to this restaurant twice, each time I hate it even more because the ruddiness and disrespectful attitude of the staff. The Food is good, however, the staff is not. I think I will never go there again.
