The food was great, the waiter was very friendly, our family of 6 loved this meal. If you've never had Lebonese food don't be afraid! We have a couple picky eaters and they loved it, too.

I have 2 favourite restaurants in this area, Orjowan is one of them (second is Addie's Thai). Been there many times, with many people and never disappointed. Meat is good and well cooked, the humus is great and all the starters, like the halloumi or the felafel are among the best ever tried. Recommended.

This restaurant is without doubt one of the most gorgeous eating out experiences we have had in recent times. We went to the restaurant with our friends - one of whom is Lebanese. He was able to choose the most wonderful mezze selection for us.
The food is 'clean' and non oily, the pastry light as a feather - try the fattier, the falafel a complete contrast from the dense and heavy ones previously experienced.
All the food was fresh and zinging with flavour and delicate spices.
Puddings - another taste explosion - the rice pudding topped with orange flower water, honey and nuts was beyond wonderful!
The owner Fatmar was friendly and efficient - as were all the staff.
TRY IT! you cannot fail to have a great meal.

We were staying nearby and happened upon this restaurant. Having never had Lebanese food before, we were grateful for the excellent advice offered by the lovely waitress. Surroundings very clean with crisp white table linen. We went for five different mezze dishes between two of us, and guided by the waitress, chose four hot and one cold which came with a flat bread. Food was tasty and portion size good. Lots of vegetarian options too. Each mezze dish costs approx £5. The wine and beer also very acceptable. We would definitely go back!
