Lebanese food dominates at this Middle Eastern restaurant on Lower Grosvenor Place, just around the corner from Victoria Station. Shisha pipes, Ottoman footstools, Moorish lanterns and kilim rugs and cushions help it look the part, too.
The menu goes big on mezze, with hummus, tabbouleh, fattoush salads and labneh alongside hot options including chargrilled halloumi, lamb sambousek, fatayer and manakish be za'atar - a traditional Lebanese pizza topped with herbs, olive oil, sesame seeds and sumac.
Many of the mains come from the grill, so expect mixed grills, marinated lamb cutlets, sea bass topped with tahini and skewers of minced lamb mixed with cracked wheat and nuts. Specials include lamb shawarma, okra cooked in tomato sauce with garlic and onion, and an authentic kibbeh bel laban.
Those looking to smoke a hookah or two can do so on the small street-side terrace.
Due to the tourist nature of the area, we are open non-stop throughout the day from noon to 11pm.
Our cuisine caters for vegetarian and non vegetarian, and for halal eaters. Our pre-theatre meal is offered from 4.30pm to 7pm, with most theatre customers heading to the St James Theatre, Apollo Theatre and the Victoria Palace Theatre.
We also cater for the neighbouring hotels like the Grosvenor Hotel, Reuben Hotel and Goring Hotel.
The restaurant menu is very rich and caters for a wide range of tastes.
