Good Restaurant in London. The service very good. The " libanese food" did not exist. Only one dish. Was more a restaurant of Oriental places like Turkey and others. The price not expensive at all. Full of youngsters that were enjoying themselves. Good for them!...More

Nicely decorated location and good and friendly service. The food is a mixture of Lebanese, Turkish, Greek or, in a word, Levantine . Dishes are well done and well presented and the taste is definitely good. Some dishes may be spicy but not too much....More

With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
