When entering the restaurant, my family and I were seated in an uncomfortable area. The structure of the restaurant does not make sense as there are big unnecessary pillars that take up needed space, which caused no space to walk. The waiter assigned to our...More

We've eaten here several times over the last couple of years and have never been disappointed. It's not haut cuisine, but tasty, interesting and plentiful food, served by great staff in a speedy, friendly, efficient fashion. Their salads are tasty and fresh tasting, I often...More

Good shawarma & Kabsa. Doesn’t deliver on taste to return. Facilities could be cleaner, saying that it was a very busy dining time.

If you are looking for solid authentic Lebanese food in London look no further. This is the real deal. It is a very simple restaurant and they don't serve alcohol, but the food makes it worthwhile.

Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods
cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience.
Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged
between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the
southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of
Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as
pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The
bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it
