    Simply furnished, bright inside, waiters look dull but they're trying to be nice. Fresh, delicious dishes, enough for 2 by max, Hummus tastes just like home, acceptable prices, good for any time meal

    THIS is my most favourite place to dine in London. Incredible good, fantastic ambience and some of the best tasting food I've ever had. This really is one of London's best kept secrets.

    A little gem hidden behind the hordes of tourists but familiar to Londoners. Great good that doesn't dent the wallet (much). Pomegranate juice should be the 1st thing you order. You won't regret it!

    I really enjoyed the food here, but I had a really dry mouth afterwards. That makes me suspect there is a lot of MSG in their food. It was all very tasty and I would go again.

    Delicious & very authentic (so I'm told) Lebanese dishes. Fresh pomegranate juice to die for & ridiculously good tabbouleh. Not that busy for a place just off Oxford st

    Mixed grill, chicken livers, Lebanese sausage and hummus were excellent. Salads were fresh, light and very tasty. Great for sharing with lots of friends.

    Beware of asking for extra tap water they slip in a £1 gbp for a jug they call a charity jug. It would be helpful if they had info about the charity or told you beforehand. Otherwise great food!

    Great spot behind Oxford street. Love the sharing dishes and it's fantastic value. I also love the fresh lemonades they do.

    Great food, long wait and extremely slow service. I had a great time, but be aware of what you're getting into. Great cheap and cheerful eats.

    Lovely mezze dishes. I always order extra flatbread but I'm just always hungry. The wraps and fresh juice to go are also nom.

    Portions are very small, so not an ideal place to dine if you're starving. Fun place for a little light snack. (Tiny Chicken Wings)

    If you don't like onions, just tell them "no onions" because they bring a lot. Don't expect a salad. It's onions as sides all the time.

    Try their Berry Dance Martinis. Just the perfect level of sweetness and simply delicious!

    Brilliant lunchtime takeaway deal - any wrap and one from a selection of mezze for £6.50

    A bit pastry heavy, don't recommend the deep fried fish selection. The halloumi and apple & mint juice were delish

    Great food. Delicious entrees. Horrible service. Had to wait for long time before getting a menu. Had to wait another 20 mns before the bill came. Food was rushed together: appetizers & entrees. :((

    Seats are so uncomfortable I got a dead leg. Falafels, hommous with shawarma were good. The feta and halloumi pastry and baklava were terrible. Don't get the Timeout approved chicken liver!

    Some years ago it tasted better. Although the menu is the same the taste is not as good as it was before. The proportions are too big. But still ind service.
