While we have eaten Lebanese food previously This was our first time eating at a Lebanese restaurant and it was quite simply amazing. We were greeted and looked after by Mohammad who made the experience even more enjoyable. Not being experienced with the menu choices, Mohammad guided us with our selections and even recommended a beautiful Pinot Noir to match... More

The hummus here is phenomenal and it must be authentic because every time I have visited, there have been large families of Lebanese people eating it all up. So I did the same thing and I don't regret it one bit. Ok, so there are some tourists who just came out of Harrods and are walking back through Knightsbridge to... More
