Came here with a group of 7 and couldn't finish all the food served. Quality was even better than quantity. Will definitely come again.

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!

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...
