Prompted by a Groupon voucher, went for a choice of six mezze plus glass of wine. Not busy - plenty of space; quite lavish interesting interior. Food was excellent including bread. All well served with pleasant hospitality. Will certainly go again. I was surprised to...read the adverse reviews. Those reviewers must have been very unlucky.More

Dined here as group of four including a young, enthusiastic child! I really enjoy Lebanese food, so will always gravitate to this cuisine and Yamal Alsham is one of the best I can remember. We were able to sit outside, taking advantage of a warm...evening in London. However, inside was quite special and with live entertainment in the form of traditional music. Food was excellent with all the usual favourites, cooked to a high standard and with an impressive wine menu including some great Burgundies. But what stood out was the level of service. The attentiveness was off the scale and genuine, sincere levels of service. I live in the home of World leading hospitality management colleges (Montreux) and this is where they should send their students to learn about how to take care of clients and make them feel special.More

We had an absolutely fabulous meal, steps from our hotel in Imperial Wharf. The service was impeccable, the food was incredible and quite reasonably priced. We started with silky smooth hummus and a bottomless basket of fresh-baked pita. My grandson had a dish that was...described as baby chicken and as he said, it must have been the whole nest of baby chickens from the size of the dish. It was served with a garlic sauce that everyone at the table dipped into, it was so delicious. My son ordered the chicken biryani, and he left nothing on the plate. I had the lamb Kabsi, which was also both plentiful and absolutely delicious. It was a memorable meal, and it was disappointing only in that London is so far from where we live. If we could give it ten stars, we would!More

We were looking for good English breakfast but it was on Sunday and pub near by did not want to serve us and we have to wait 45 min before eating something different and I though I have honk there is an Italian place near...by and the Italian guy working there send me next door. It was an amazing experience as Assam was so professional and caring about our wish… he did not try convince to order something different. Breakfast was amazing and when I had a look about all menù I thought all food it is no over price but amazing value. I definitely will Go back there for lunch or dinner. I would highly recommend the his restaurant.More

Expensive, and super-noisy. The waiter pushed us to order the most expensive menu option. Annoying. We didn't - but still ended up with far more food that we needed (hello, food waste!) The singer was SO LOUD! We couldn't even talk to the person next...to us. And then it was expensive. So, basically, we paid a load of money & were unable to chat and wasted loads of food. There are loads of better Lebanese restaurants in London. Avoid this one.More

Superb and authentic leabanese food and excellent service . There is an outside dining area and also an indoor dining room that is very tastefully decorated and has the most elegant chandeliers . The staff are very accommodating . I highly recommend it !

We went to this restaurant today for lunch with my Daughter in law. We were greeted and service was friendly and we ordered our food. Unfortunately, both main dishes arrived pretty cold. Generally the quality of food wasn’t that great specially for the price. It...was served cold as well. when it came to desert they recommended something and we told them that we don’t want to eat too much as none of us are great eaters,especially with dessert. He recommended a half portion, as well as the fact that we already have ordered baklava to share too. When the half portion arrived, we could not believe the size of it. It was enough for six people. We wondered what would be the full portion. We were charged £15 for this. When I complained about this at the end, and the fact that the food was cold,the reaction was non-existent. I have been there a few years ago and I got the same impression then. They just want you to spend more money as they don’t expect to see you again. More like pushy restaurants in touristy areas like Istanbul or similar, with the difference that this is a very residential area and they should be looking for repeat clients. No wonder that they are always quite. Definitely my last time going there for sure.More

We stumbled across this place while staying at the Hilton and I’m so glad we did! We read the reviews but decided to try it anyway. The restaurant itself is beautiful and the front of house are all very welcoming. The menu is varied and...might seem a little expensive, but the food is 5 stars so definitely worth every penny. There were 4 of us and my 12 year old daughter. Us adults fancied the set menu (6 starters and a main for 2 people) but were worried that 12 starters and 4 main dishes would be too much. The very helpful waiter suggested we order just 3 and could order 1 more main if we were hungry. Believe me, we didn’t need any more food! All of the dishes were so delicious and cooked to perfection. My daughter had a chicken snitzel burger that was huge and very tender. At the end of our meal we were given complimentary baklava and proper mint tea. I can honestly say that this was one of the best meals out I’ve had in a long time and the service was fantastic. It’s definitely worth a visit.More

Went here for Sunday lunch as we had just had a river cruise. So we walked past it and the waiters were outside touting for customers during lunchtime. We were directed into the restaurant which looked grand with large tables and big blue chairs. Sat...down and was given the menu by a tall waiter in a suit. Menu was very expensive. We ordered a tea and he wanted to bring two. We ordered a bottle of water and wanted to bring two. Had to correct him both times. We ordered the mixed grill. Tiniest portion ever. Worst mixed grill. No lamb chops and just a few chips. . Service was non existent. Food was placed on the table. No sauces given. No check backs done. Just poor service and very expensive food. Food was mediocre. Have had much better. If you want better, I suggest you try Masgouf. They are a million times better and bigger portions. Also they charge a £5 cover charge when they have an empty restaurant at lunch. Very disappointing, won’t be returning.More
