“Just a wrap!”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

I dropped in here for lunch today, and was very pleased I did. Excellent value, £5 for a wrap and a drink. Delicious wrap with minced lamb and a very pleasant yoghurt drink. Very friendly waitress, nice decor. I would definitely go back.

“Good value”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

Last time we visited Mashawi with friends, and we ordered types of grilled meat and a dish called "Kozi." That was the first time we had Lebanese cuisine, and thought the grilled meat was a little bit tough to us. But the dish "Kozi" was really delicious. It was a lamb shank cooked with vegetables and spices, and the source tasted good. A few days ago we passed by this restaurant and had some food to take out. The staff packed our dishes carefully which was appreciated because the food was still very hot whilst we got home in a chilly evening.

“Above expectations”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Decided to visit due to wanting try a new type of cuisine. Initially wasn't sure, but upon walking into the restaurant was pleasantly surprised by cultural decor which gave a good middle Eastern atmosphere. Warmly greeted by waiter who was very friendly and knowledgeable. Waited longer than would have liked for drinks, but food arrived fairly promptly. The food is definitely the highlight, as all dishes ordered were of excellent quality and even my 7 year old nephew enjoyed his food!

The only thing that some might not like is that due to it being a Lebanese (and Muslim run) restaurant, alcohol is not served.

Overall, a great meal and will definitely go back.

“Not good, not bad, very average.”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

We ordered a take-away from Mashawi. It wasn't very hot when it got here. Bread was dry...baba ganoush was not very tasty, falafels were ok-ish. Not bad but nothing to rave about. I doubt we'll order again, there is better food out there to spend out money on. And also... major inconvenience, they don't have a menu online, you have to find it on Facebook, like the page etc and when/if you do, it's a weird format that you can't read or a psd which is enormous. I'm quite techie savvy and it took me 45 minutes.

Dear Customer,

Thank you for your review about Mashawi, we always welcome reviews as an oppurtunity to improve our business.
I am dissapointed that you order from Mashawi was not as you expected it to be, our team aims to make our customers experience pleasurable, and I apologise that you are unhappy with your order.
As you realise, delivery food can never justify the real experience of a restaurant and I would like to invite you to visit Mashawi and recieve the excellent service and food that all our visitors recieve.
Also as you have stated that you have had difficulties with downloading our menu, and that you are quite computer literate.. we would welcome any suggestions for a better way of making our menu available for customers as it would have a positive impact on our business.

Thank you once again for your review and have a nice day
