A Poland Street branch of the popular Lebanese chain.

The Poland Street branch of Comptoir Libanais has all the kitschy charm that’s made this Lebanese canteen chain such a hit. Patterned wicker bags and tinned goods line the walls, giving you the feeling that in this joint, anything that isn’t actually welded to the floor is for sale. The Middle Eastern souk vibe continues across the menu. Expect decent takes on meze classics and grills – the chicken kofta is succulent and comes with lovely spicy harissa and garlic sauce. My tip? Avoid the greenery: the fattoush is basically just a side salad with a few token bits of pitta and pomegranate thrown on top. But choose carefully, and you can’t help but enjoy this bright, bargainous lunch spot.
