“Good and can be quick”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2014

We only had 25 minutes for lunch and on entering I informed the team that we had very little time. They were most cooperative and we actually were out in 30 minutes. The three items we ordered were all nice. Especially the humus with coriander and chilli. Would like to go back for a proper meal.

“Scam, avoid at all costs”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2014

the meals were ok but there was a baby screaming and this noise haunted me and my family for the duration of the meal. the food was very very limited and when i received my grilled chicken there was little to no chicken on the plate and the plate had been overloaded with salad and sauce making it a poor meal. then came the price. me and my family had ordered around £60 of food and drink but where astonished to see the bill come up to £85. apparently mineral water coat £10 and you also had to pay for the waiters 'service.' this is an outrageous amount just for a family of 4 and non of us where satisfied with the meals. i highly suggest avoiding this restaurant as in the end it is just a scam for a bad meal and overpriced food and drink.

“Amazing Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2014

On our first night in London my husband and I headed to Harrods for some shopping, looking for a place for dinner on the way. We came across LayaLina on a small side street. My husband is of Lebanese descent so we checked out the menu and headed in. This turned out to be our best meal in London. We had humus served with in house baked pita bread, fatoush salad (which was extraordinarily fresh), chicken kabobs and prawns. Not only did everything taste spectacular it looked beautiful as well. The service was good but we were the only ones in the restaurant for a while. We were on the very early end of dinner time as we had been traveling all day. I would highly recommend dining here and to sample the Lebanese wine. It was very good and topped off the authenticity of the meal.

“Restaurant won't honour promotion...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2014

We decided to visit this restaurant via the famous application called Entertainer which we used already in london. Unfortunately the staff did not pay any interest in us and neither know the promotion we had in the restaurt. I will not recomend to visit this disrespectful place...

“Great Service & Menu Selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2014

Great service and wonderful menu. Wish I could've tried more but was more than satisfied with the halloumi starter, stew main & delicious baklava desert. Will visit again.
