We had a great meal here. The food was excellent with a range of dishes offering excellent value for money. In particular the lamb dishes were extremely tasty. Would thoroughly recommend.

I have been to Al Hamra several times. The food is always good. The staff a fine, not great. The location and the atmosphere are terrific. The menu does not seem to have changed much over the years.

Came as a group of 3 on a Thursday night. Ignored at the door for a long time (waiters and the manager passed by without taking notice even though we asked to see the menu while waiting). Then told a table would be ready in 5 minutes. After minutes we had to ask again, and were then given a table.

It took a long time before the waiters came to take our order. We came with a friend who knows about Lebanese food and left the ordering to her. We got some nice surprises including a lamb tartare and some chicken livers.

The restaurant made some mistakes with our order - they brought an extra dip which we kept, but did not bring another dish (left out of the order). By the time we discovered we had almost finished eating so we left it. The food itself was quite good. I particularly enjoyed the two dishes mentioned above. We finished with a pot of refreshing mint tea.

The bill was pricey. I'll try a different restaurant next time.

Just plain ignored.

Came in after the big rush but an hour before closing. Ordered a few dishes - no complaints here - but when we were looking to add to our order (wine, food, etc), we could not get the attention of a waiter.

So we eventually tracked someone down, paid up and moved on.

Really bummed. I had been here many years back (several times) and had some very good experiences.
