“Wonderful food and service”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Three plus baby visited and tried their lunch menu. Was very impressed.
Portions were good. Service very friendly. They were flexible in changing items in their lunch menu. They made a mistake in one order but they made up for it nicely.

Only negative was they were out of most fresh juices on their menu and they were a bit expensive.

Sunday lunch here is very pleasant. We stayed for a few hours.

“Great place. Lovely food. Bring a bottle!”
Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

Found this place by accident when staying at Novotel nearby. Great food, great value. And bring your own alcohol! great for saving money. Tesco across the road has a good range of wines.

“Wonderful Lebanese food”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Stumbled on this gem by accident whlst staying near The Excel, we had never tried Lebanese food before and were not disappointed. Amazingly friendly and helpful waitress, not having tried the food before we opted for the set menu for two in order to sample a range of foods. Lovely choice, but be warned.....you get loads on your table and we though that was all of it so we tucked in, but then they presented us with a plate of hot freshly cooked meats as well....and then a plate of Lebanese sweet delicacies. Stretchy trousers/skirts required!! Very good value.

“Don't use your debit card here!!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Food and service okay, no complains there. However, DO NOT USE YOUR DEBIT CARD here! Had a meal here 2 weeks ago when attending a conference at Excel. The attendant swiped my card twice but said it was not getting through. Then he changed the machine, and third time round, the payment was accepted.
When I got home, checked my bank statement and found I was charged 3 times! Had a hard time finding the restaurant's phone number as they do not have a website. Lots of expensive long distance calls, and was given assurance I will be refunded. Usual excuse for the delay - boss on holiday, busy etc etc.
Got an email yesterday that the money was transfered but will take a few days to reach me. Still waiting .....

“Excellent Lebanese Food”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Everything about this restaurant is wonderful,the food, the staff , the cost. We were staying in nearby hotel and happened upon the Reem Al Bawadi. It really was a pleasant evening but the high light was the food-it was brilliant served with plenty of bread.The staff are very pleasant and helpful.If you are in the Excel area do not miss it. We will certainly be going back there.
