It's hard to imagine you're in Tooting. But this tiny, bustling restaurant has all the smoky charm of eating real Lebanese in real Lebanon. Everything is cooked on the other side of the counter by busy chefs cramped over hot coals. Their kofte kebabs are succulent and herby and the grilled haloumi in pitta bread has become a family favourite. Service is exceptionally bright and fast. A mark of its success is that you will have to book days ahead even if you're a regular. Easily outperforms the vastly more expensive other Lebanese places in the West End.

Meza restaurant in Tooting, South London is, quite frankly, the best Lebanese food I have had in London. Just up the road from Tooting Bec Underground station, this small -- seats just 14 people at a go -- family-run eatery has top quality food freshly prepared in the crammed kitchen that takes up about half the available floor space. The service is always very friendly service and the prices are really affordable. It is always busy, so booking is essential -- and some way in advance at that. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Meza is a really tiny place with bags of charm. The food was simply outstanding, even the houmous/hummus/hummous/hommos/humos/hommus/hoummos was a world apart from anything I've had before and the prices are really very reasonable. We'll be going back very soon I hope.

This local restaurant is a real treat. Great food and service, all for a reasonable price. Make sure you book and try the minced lamb kebab, delicious!
