“A wonderful dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2013

I have been visiting Al Sultan for 10 years and have never been disappointed. The food is tasty and beautifully presented, the staff friendly and the ambience comfortable and smart. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

“Hidden respite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2013

Looking for a restaurant that could take 9 of us. We had spent the day in the Shepherds Market area for a reunion and wanted a meal together. Al Sultan came to the rescue, finding room for us on Saturday night when everywhere was busy. We all enjoyed the meal especially our visitors from USA. If I was going again I would ensure of a booking just to be safe on getting a table in a popular area for eating.

“Refreshing difference !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2013 via mobile

We first discovered Al Sultan many years ago during a trip from Singapore. We discovered it again by accident about 10 years ago & on our infrequent visits to London we try to visit if we have time. We visited again last Sunday for our birthday dinner and we're not disappointed. I think I frightened them somewhat with my allergy problems but following discussions with the chef everything was fine. Recommended for a meal with a difference. Liver with pomegranate as a starter was a special for me, instead of the normal lemon. Their efforts appreciated.

“Too many cover charges”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Food was fine. Service was good although it was hard to pay the bill. And when it did arrive... quite a shock.

Any shared item is charged at the full price for the number of people who shared it. "Fried Potatoes" were nothing more than chips which is not very honest and, as for the appetizer, were charged as a full serving for for each diner when we requested to share to avoid over-ordering.

Given that there are 3 other Lebanese restaurants in Shepherd Market, we would not return to this one and would ask some serious questions at any other we visited. Other restaurants in the same area did not employ the punitive charging for sharing that Al Sultan did.
