Still tasty...

I came back to London after a couple of years and decided to get another takeaway from this place. The wings were just as delicious as last time. We also ordered the chicken shawarma and falafels this time. The falafels were freshly made in front of us and they were absolutely fantastic! I've... read more

My husband is half-Lebanese and we love this food but it's very labour-intensive to make so finding a good restaurant/takeout place was very important to us. After trying so many, and being disappointed by quite a few, this is seriously the best Lebanese food we've had in ages. We've been going there to eat in and take away for quite... More

Came here once after seeing people sneak food in the Pub from here, as far as kebabs go the one up the road in Colliers Wood is better. There's always shady looking people sat round eating in and I wouldn't describe this as a restaurant at all just a few tables and chairs or gourmet for that matter.

If you are expecting the red carpet treatment you won't find it here. Instead enjoy tasty hot food prepared while you wait. The food is fantastic, especially the whole chicken. Not your average kebab shop.

They have bad attitudes and bad food. I ordered the mixed grill and it basically consisted of terrible tasting minced lamb skewers, not an equal selection of beef, chicken and lamb. When I inquired about why my mixed grill consisted essentially all lamb skewers, the man behind the counter was dismissive. Will not eat here again and do no recommend... More

I was introduced to this fabulous restaurant /take-away by my daughter who often frequents it and has become a regular supporter of their freshly prepared chicken and lamb kebabs.I was really impressed with the large portion and extra pita bread and humus starter we had.The staff is very friendly and extremely efficient considering the large number of customers waiting to...

This is a great little place in Colliers Wood serving home made Lebanese food. My sister goes here all the time. I ate the falafel (very good), chicken shawarma (I've had better elsewhere) and chicken wings. I have to tell you that the chicken wings were absolutely outstanding. They marinate the chicken wings and then grill them over charcoal. It... More
