A kitsch and cosy Lebanese restaurant
It's on the same road as the high-stepping River Café, but this bijou neighbourhood restaurant couldn’t be more different. Fabulously kitsch, kooky, colourful and stuffed to the gunnels with the owner’s personally collected paraphernalia (musical instruments, fans, lavishly decorated lanterns, upturned parasols dangling from the ceiling etc), it feels like an eccentric’s front room with a little kitchen area in the middle blasting out heat and spicy aromas. Don’t be fooled by the restaurant’s French name, the food’s authentically Lebanese, straightforward and generous – with the main man always on duty at the stoves. The short pared-back menu offers things like shish kebabs topped with tahini sauce or Lebanese ‘traditional chicken’ (prepared with onions, garlic, courgettes, mushrooms and cinnamon), although most people opt for one of the mixed meze feasts with warm pitta bread. Immense fun.

Seriously good, freshly prepared and awesome food you can get. it is the best value for money you can get!
Cute and quirky restaurant run by one man in what seems to be a spruced up extension of his living room! If thats not impassive, then check out the wonderfully random (and multicultural) decor that makes this lebanese place. The food is amazing and it's such a great alternative experience.
A fantastic restaurant. Both food and atmosphere can't be beaten. Give this one a try and you will become a regular.
food is fantastic and tasty. very warmed and homely place. highly recommended for family party. fantastic place to be.
This is an unique lebanese restaurant that has beautiful decoration and romantic atmosphere. The food is very delicious and freshly cooked in front of you. My favorite is lamb steak which is so tender and tasty. i had brilliant time there. It's one of the best restaurant in London.
The restaurant is so popular and busy that you'd better book in advance, especially weekend.
The decor is bonkers but the food brilliant. From the outside you really wouldn't believe how good this place is. There doesn't really appear to be a proper theme to all the junk that surrounds every available space in the restaurant but it gives you lots to talk about! The menu is pretty simple but food is delicious and all cooked from an open kitchen. The atmosphere is really friendly and nothing appears to be too much trouble for the charming staff/ owners. The sort of place you'd go back to over and over.
Delicious food, great atmosphere and overall brilliant restaurant. I loved the simplicity of the menu and wine list, the quirky objects and interior decoration and fantastic. The food tasted delicious and were good portions. I'll definitely be going back!
Flavour, intimate atmosphere and service. That's why my wife and I frequent Mes Amis. It is also why our visitors from around the world insist on joining us at this delightful restaurant.
Been here five times now abd every time the food is exceptional especially the starters. I also brought my family when they visited and they keep asking to go back! diamond in the rough in Hammersmith
Not only the food is superb and the service spotless, worth well more than the price paid. The atmosphere is unique, candles, little collectibles from all over the world, fire place, and among the highlights, you see the chef cooking in a corner of the dining room. The toilets are yet another surprising touch of class. If you want to impress your partner while enjoying extraordinary Mediterranean food, look no further.
