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.

One of the best Lebanese resturant in the area. Staff are friendly, place is nice, and food was excellent.

“Good service, good food, reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Local Lebanese which does all the classics. Tend to graze through a wide variety of mezes and side dishes. Always order too many and the "starters" are reasonably/well portioned. Since you can order in stages, it pays to wait and see just how much you'll really need/want.

“Hard to find, but worth the hunt!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

We met friends here for dinner. We arrived over 30 minutes late due to my poor Google map skills and the street nomenclature in Google maps. We ordered the Mezza plates X4 and ended up with tons of food. Lots of lamb and chicken and some decent Lebanese white wine! Service was solid and costs were reasonable for London.

“Very tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Ate in the Fairuz with my wife as we fancied trying Lebanese cuisine. We opted for the set menu as we didn't know what to order. Everything was very tasty and we would definitely eat here again. The service was pleasant and they managed to fit us in even though they were very busy. Price wise I would say what we had for our £25 per person was maybe not really enough but it gave us the chance to try a few different dishes. Overall a very nice atmospheric restaurant that served very nice food.

“Outstanding food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Fairuz exceeded our high expectations with its food, hospitality and atmosphere on a very important family celebration. Despite its busy setting we never felt crowded and our waiter kept the food and wine flowing perfectly. Bravo, Fairuz!
