We went to Oxford for the weekend and we were recommended to come, and you know it is popular when you struggle to book and a table and we ended up eating at 6.45 as long as we out by 8.15!
This was not a problem as we were first in so the food came out fairly quickly, and we went for the set menu just so we could try more dishes, which was a good idea. The salad selection was hilarious as the starter, but all the options were really good and would thoroughly recommend other visitors to go and ty (but make ahead of time)
Also the lebansese wine is also really good and the service was very family owned who when you struck up a conversation were quite entertaining!

Food was ok, but there was a large piece of plastic in my food... The waiter apologised, but we did not get any discount. Probably not going back after this experience.

Al Salam serves consistently delicious food, with an excellent (and unbelievably good value, by Oxford standards) selection of unusual wines. The menu has a huge amount of variety, making it simultaneously both a great place to entertain vegetarian friends, as well as a great place to take people who will appreciate their selection of grilled meats.

I had my lunch here in Al-Salam and it was very nice. The meat was very juicy, well cooked and tasty. The spices and herbs used were very optimal. Amazing experience and its very cost effective. Love it and again will go to the same restaurant for more food....

Found our way here by mistake and I am so glad we did.

Simple Lebanese food and a great selection for vegetarians. Staff were very attentive and the food was served quickly.

Clean plates all round!!!
