“Excellent and novel spot”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

I went to this restaurant after a bithday party at a nearby pub not expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised to find a vibrant outdoor sitting area with good heating (blankets also available) and tasty shishas to puff on for some added character. The food (Lebanese) was superb - very fresh and well presented and service was attentive but not intrusive. The young owners came by for a chat and were very nice as well.

Definitely recommended for a night out with friends especially if you like to sit outside (even in winter). We didn't really spend time inside so I am not sure what it is like there.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

I've been to Layali Lounge last weekend with my family and absolutely loved it! I am originally from Lebanon and all I can say is that this is the best Lebanese in London. Not only are the ingredients fresh but their cooking simply draws out the traditional flavors- Tabouleh and Soujouk tasted just like the ones my grandma used to cook!!! hmm... al makan 7elow :) Staff was very polite and friendly, always happy to help choosing the dishes. The meat is Halal and they have a wide choice of virgin cocktails as well as the other non-alcoholic drinks such as freshly squeezed juices and smoothies. I already look for another visit there Inch'Allah :)

“Clapham has a new hidden gem waiting to be discovered”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Whenever we felt like eating a shawarma or having some nice shisha we used to do the trek from south london all the way to Edgware road,but thanks to this new place we save alot of time and energy.
I visited Layali after my roomie cudnt stop raving about it.
We went there on Friday night and loved the place really tasty food and decent drinks.After our meal we relaxed in their lovely front terrace with some nice shisha and had a belly dancer perform for us.Really surprised that we didnt notice this place before.
All and all I will definitely recommend this place ,and we pride ourselves at being regulars here now.
