This Shepherds Bush restaurant specialises in the cuisine of Damascus, though dishes from across the Middle East - and in some cases, beyond - also feature. So plenty of variety, then. It's twinned with the Syrian supermarket right next door.
Dishes range from mezze staples such as tabbouleh, fattoush, houmous, falafel and lamb sambousek to chicken shawarma, lamb tagine, kibbeh labneh and various biryani. A house special of makmour - steamed lamb thigh with vegetables - looks appealing. Desserts include baklawa, om ali, knafeh and mouhalabieh - a traditional Lebanese milk rice pudding.
Fresh fruit juices, non-alcoholic beers and ayran yoghurt feature on the drinks list.
