The comparatively swanky decor at this Connaught Street restaurant helps distance it from the informal Lebanese kebab houses of the Edgware Road. Its marble-topped, hotel-style reception leads to a grand room divided by dark wooden pillars and palm trees. An ornate fountain funnels into a pool of koi carp. Walls are hung with oversized paintings and engraved mirrors, ceilings are set with a constellation of spot lighting, and the tables clothed in crisp white linen.
The menu is traditional Lebanese fare, with meze hot and cold alongside colourful salads, grilled cod with tahini, and okra and aubergine stews. It's the large grill that's kept most busy though, with mixed grills, kebabs and lamb chops just some of the options getting the charcoal treatment.
Desserts include baklava, fresh fruit platters and mouhallabieh – Lebanese milk pudding topped with rosewater syrup and sprinkled with pistachios.
