It was a Saturday night so we opted for he five course tasting menu as that was the only choice. Twenty five per head. A good price given all the food . I would have liked some lighter more innovated dishes but it was the run of the mill western Lebaneese flavors which is such a shame as the Lebanon is a culinary paradise of flavors and teniques.

Went here on reccomdation of a friend. It is a real hidden gem. The food was great I had the samosas my husband and one of the other couple had the Halloomi and the other had the lentil soup
The portions were very Lebanese generous and the mains were the same. I would advise people to take their appetites with them. All this for under £11 for under £15 you can have large assortment of Tapas we did not have it but I saw it going to other tables huge. Staff we friendly and very helpful it explaining each dish. For 4 of us including soft drinks was just over £50
Will be going back again.

After looking through TripAdvisor, came across this place. Pictures and reviews looked good. Wasn't able to find an evening menu online so gave them a call - the lady explained the menu is changed too often for a menu to be published but explained the evening was a set 5 course meal.

We arrived a bit early but were welcomed and seated quickly by a friendly staff member.
The layout/atmosphere wasn't really what I was expecting but still nice all the same.

We had the evening set menu, which the staff explained very well and as each of the 5 courses were served the staff explained what all the dishes included.

It was a very relaxed setting - we didn't feel rushed and were able to sit and enjoy our meal without feeling pressure. There were a few tables in before us and they were still there when we left which shows how relaxed Tahini is.
The food was portioned and served well. There was an equal amount of food for the two of us. All hot food, was still hot by the time we got to the end of the dishes.

Although it was a very positive experience overall there were some negatives... during the courses staff would clear the table before we had finished, which disturbs conversation; the desert was very basic, consisting mainly of fresh fruit. Lastly, the toilets could do with some attention.

As already said, it was a very positive experience and we will be back.
