FFairuz restaurant in London���s Marylebone is named in tribute to Lebanon's most famous chanteuse and cultural icon - a sweet, unguarded idea that, if copied, could lead to Bob Dylan the chippie or Cliff Richard the burger bar. Fairuz the restaurant is one of London's more relaxed and intimate Lebanese restaurants, with comfortable, rustic d��cor and a warm welcome. Fairuz still observes all the traditions: formal service, the instant appearance of olives and chilled salad upon arrival. But the d��cor, cooking, and staff are all pleasantly flamboyant and at Fairuz there's a general bonhomie among the staff and clientele. The Lebanese cuisine bursts with Eastern Mediterranean flavours - old favourites like tabouleh, foul moukaaka, and moutabaal do new dance steps on your tongue. The raw meat starters are unmissable. Good vegetarian selection, of course, and there is complimentary fruit and baklava with coffee.

Succulent chicken and good location

I have been to this restaurant several times. The chicken is succulent and very tasty. Portion sizes are good. Service the first time I went was superb and they were very attentive. The last time we did wait quite a while for the starters and main and it was a bit rushed service with drinks etc. I... read more

We booked a large group for dinner and were told that they would serve a set menu which seemed like a good idea. There were long delays between courses, the staff did not clear the tables and as we had made the suggestion to go to Fairuz, it was just plain embarrassing. We have eaten here several times in the... More

My family wanted a good Lebanese meal so we went to Fairuz for lunch today. The service was appalling alternating between indifference and arrogance. Even when they bought us the same starter three times they tried to insist it was our fault. The food when it eventually came was tepid and bland with little evidence of the usual excellence of...

We visited this restaurant very early at 6 pm, prior to babysitting duties as grandparents. Fairuz was quite empty at this early hour, but got busy later, but as we left at 7:45, we did not see it in full swing. We were very pleased when visiting this restaurant about 18 months ago, so again ordered the same set menu... More

Came with three friends, one a vegetarian. We had the set mezza, which included lots of great dishes, including a fabulous, smoky baba ghanouj that's the best I've had. they had problems with their POS and gave us some free baklava to make up for it. recommended.

I went to this restaurant with my Lebanese girlfriend. I am Spanish and I was quite intrigued about what to expect from the Lebanese food.. Honestly, the food was great and very tasty. What I personally liked as well was the cozy environment and the personal treatment of the service, who were very approachable and took special care that I... More

You feel like you have been transported to a small village and are eating in a very special family run restaurant. It's not a fancy restaurant and the food is not Michelin style food. It is an incredibly good Lebanese family restaurant. The flavours are incredible and the quality superb. If you like Lebanese food you will love Fairuz.

I last ate here 15 years ago! It has changed hands since but has retained that great, friendly Lebanese style. I have noted some of the reviews below and think a couple of comments are worth directing at them: Yes - the waiters are keen to serve you - that's their way - but they don't rush you - and... More

We had the set menu with meze and grilled meat. The food was good (but not great) and there was so much of it we couldn't finish all of it. We got a bottle of the house wine which was pretty horrible, but all in all we had a good time. Not the best Lebanese in London but quite ok... More

Well, having never actually been to Lebanon, I'm not qualified to say this, but the food and service were wonderful. Don't fill up too quickly on the amazing array of flatbreads. All the 'usual suspects' - the hummus, herby pomegranate salad, falafels were as good as I've had. However, for me, the stars were the spicy nut mixture (sorry, didn't... More

Description

FFairuz restaurant in London���s Marylebone is named in tribute to Lebanon's most famous chanteuse and cultural icon - a sweet, unguarded idea that, if copied, could lead to Bob Dylan the chippie or Cliff Richard the burger bar. Fairuz the restaurant is one of London's more relaxed and intimate Lebanese restaurants, with comfortable, rustic d��cor and a warm welcome. Fairuz still observes all the traditions: formal service, the instant appearance of olives and chilled salad upon arrival. But the d��cor, cooking, and staff are all pleasantly flamboyant and at Fairuz there's a general bonhomie among the staff and clientele. The Lebanese cuisine bursts with Eastern Mediterranean flavours - old favourites like tabouleh, foul moukaaka, and moutabaal do new dance steps on your tongue. The raw meat starters are unmissable. Good vegetarian selection, of course, and there is complimentary fruit and baklava with coffee.

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
