“Nothing special”
Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

Pleasant enough lunch, but very casual service that almost felt like we were interrupting at times. Food was quite good, but then again I've eaten plenty of Lebenese food over the years and it was of similar standard to most of them. This is exactly the kind of place which is just ok.

“Still closed!”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

still closed (19th April 2013), nothing in the window to indicate when it will re-open. When and if they do re-open and you are planning a night there, please check to ensure that it is not a night when they feature their 'belly-dancer' if that is not your cup of freshmint tea. The belly-dancing ruined dinner for me and a friend a few months ago - we randomly picked it because it was close to my friend's hotel. My friend and I had not seen each other for years and just as we were starting to get caught up properly, there she was (the belly dancer I mean) in all her semi-clad and glittery glory, with music as loud as her make-up. Avoid is you are looking for a quiet and intimate night, go for it if you fancy kitch. Assuming it re-opens of course.

“Don't go there. Poor.”
Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

This is for st Christopher's place branch. Food average, place was cold! No heating. Worse was that both diners spent the night with the " runs", never had that from any Resturant in London before!

“don't bother!”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

what an awful experience! Rang on Wed and spoke with a guy named Raymond or something like that, made a reservation for Sat evening. Left my name, phone and all, got confirmation. When I went there for dinner found the message in the picture attached. They were closed, apparently due to some accident in the kitchen. They've also been closed for more than 24hrs, no one bothered to let me know and cancel the booking. Apart from that there were some very dodgy looking guys inside and a strong smell of weed came out as they answered the door. Do not go!

Massis has been re opened since December 2013 after we were closed for a small period of time, due to a small fire, please do come in and experience our beautiful fresh Lebanese cuisine, Im sorry that you was not notified that we were closed.

“DO NOT PLAN A NIGHT AT THIS RESTAURANT”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Arranged a reunion at this venue. Arrived on time to find the restaurant closed without even a courtesy call - diabolical service and I hope nobody else has their special evening ruined by this restaurant.
