I'm still licking my lips thinking about the grilled eggplant mezze and holoumi starter that I had here last night. I came in expecting a decent meal but the food is actually incredible. I arrived with a party of 5 as a quick outing after a late meeting and we shared a bunch of small dishes with mixed kebab as... More

Sought this restaurant out thanks to Tripadvisor and we glad we braved the cold to visit. Friendly staff, prompt service, good value and excellent food. Pretty much everything a good eatery should be. The people of Oxford have a little gem.

I make sure to pay a visit at Al-Salam each time I'm in town. Living in London, I've got a vast choice of Middle-Eastern restaurants and I believe this one is way one of the best. The food is delicious and good quality and its simplicity makes it even more characteristic. I highly recommend Al-Salam!

I love this place! Since I discovered it, I can't stop to keep going back. I am not from middle east and their way of having meals is different to mine, as well as the food itself was unknown to me. The first time I asked for suggestions to the owner that was taking attentive care of each table. He... More

Been to all Lebanese and Arabic restaurants in Oxford and have to say this is by far the best restaurant in town, not merely because the food was great but the service and attention from staff made us feel at home all the way through.. Comes highly recommended...

I recently visited the restaurant with a group of friends. We ordered mixed mezze and a selection of grilled kofta, kebab, lamb cutlets, and chicken skewers. The mezze plates were expertly done (the Sujuk in particular is to die for). The falafel was freshly prepared, rivalling some of the best I've had in the UK. The grilled items were superb... More

A friend and I visited this restaurant several weeks ago under a recommendation from another friend. We had, in the past, attempted to visit Al-Salam, but could not as it is difficult to find later in the evening because it is hidden between a club and a bar, and there are large crowds of people outside. On entering, we saw... More
