“Great food and Great Hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

I've been to this gem of a restaurant a few times now, always in a group, and we've always had a fantastic time. Whilst the decor is average, the food is good value really is excellent, delicious and authentic Lebanese and Middle-Eastern food, good portion sizes, and friendly and hospitable staff and owner always on hand to make sure things are going well. And don't miss the shisha bar out back, to enjoy a smoke and a drink or mint tea afterwards.

Excellent food for all tastes, value for money and outstanding friendly service. Definitely a great place to socialise for a nice meal for two or a night out with friends.

“Fab-u-lous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

I have been dinning in Al-Salam Lebanese restaurant since they opened many years ago. I bring different friends and family with me and we all enjoy the food time after time.

The food is consistently delicious and mouth watering, and I have never had a bad (or even mediocre) meal there. It is halal meat as well as vegetarian and vegan heaven. You can choose from an array of hot and cold starters ranging from between £3-£5, and the most expensive main is around £12.

I eat in Lebanese restaurants all over the world, most recently last month in Sydney, but Al-Salam is the best in the world!
