Just a walk in for dinner. Service was non existent. Super noisy. Food presentation was a slop on a plate. Main filler was lebanese bread - no one wants bread as a main meal really??? And don't get me started on the beverage menu -..."Atrocious". Will not be back!More

Fantastic dining experience. Can't fault anything here, the food, the food, the food. Amazingly fresh, fragrant in flavour and plentiful. We loved our feast and couldn't fault any dish. The service staff team also so a good job ensuring that diners are looked after. The...bonus is the owner who welcomes diners and creates a fun environment. Bonus - we were also provided with two free and beautiful dishes - houmus and arnabeet (cauliflower and tahini). A+ and we will be back.More

Dinner at 8.00PM for 4 people.we had been before and expected to be noisy but it was like in a football stadium - could not have a talk across the table. Service was poor. Entrees came OK but then after another 30 minutes 2 waiters...asked if we were finished yet without our 3 main courses arriving. Eventually received 2 main courses but 3rd course asked 3 times where it was. Arrived later when we wanted to leave around 10PM. Food was average - the pulled lamb was over cooked and tough. Will not return.More

I have been here several times and the food is good, a cut above your average Lebanese. HOWEVER firstly, it is quite expensive. Secondly, it is very noisy, to the point where it's not really possible for a group to have a meal together and...have a conversation. Thirdly, I ordered a takeaway meal on Menulog which hadn't arrived by 45 minutes after the specified time, and when I rang the restaurant, they blamed Menulog. I said I was concerned that the food would be cold when we finally got it (and it was), and maybe this system wasn't working out so well for them, and the woman abused me and eventually hung up on me. All she had to do was say "Sorry about that, we've frustrated with them too, try nuking the food for a minute and it should be ok". So no points there for customer relations. That said, their babaghanoush is excellent, felafel pretty good, and the lamb and chicken kebabs (with wonderful garlic sauce) were still very tender even after being nuked. Bread was pretty stale though.More

Went for lunch based in the opening hours on their website and this site and was confronted with a signed that told me restaurant was closed and I should stay home - WT?

We had seven dishes and two bottles of wine and we were not disappointed everything was truly amazing. My favourite dish of the night was Lemon and garlic chicken.

The food is always fresh, clean and delicious. Osama the owner is generous with the serving size. Their service comes from the heart, they are very accommodating and pleasant. One of my favourite local restaurants.

What a great experience after eight weeks of no restaurants! Our group of 10 had a mouthwatering experience with the variety of food we had. The choice was the meat banquet. The chef/owner Ossama was attentive and generous in the portions he provided.

The restaurant is flat and I am sure you could get a wheelchair in. I have not used the toilet at Kadmus, so difficult for me to answer your question. Best to ring them directly, they are always very friendly and happy to... More
