“Very small portion”
Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

I was surprised to find the portion so less. I guess when they mean baby chicken it really is a baby chicken. Another lamb dish we ordered was small in quantity. Four of us ended up ordering 7 mains 4 cold stateres and 2 hot starters and yet neither of had filled stomach. We had totally lost the track what food were we still waiting for as it took light years for the food to be made.

“Excellent fresh tasting food”
Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

Ok the food is good !! fresh!! And of good value. The waitress was not very familiar with the menu though but that's a minor point. Definitely I will be planning to go again.

“Babylonia ...”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We were also there pre The Wall gig at Wembley on Saturday 14/09/13. We booked for 4.30pm but arrived earlier which presented no problem to staff who were very friendly and welcoming. Restaurant very quiet at time and staff couldn't have done more for us to explain the menu and give recommendations. Manager chatted away to us. Original choice of starter unavailable but substituted with excellent alternative. Service first class, food superb - piping hot and fabulous presentation (see photo as evidence!). Absolutely no complaints and would recommend a visit.

“LEBANESE FAWLTY TOWERS!”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Is it possible to give a zero rating??We went here before The Wall gig at Wembley on Saturday.The service was absolutely terrible - four of us waited 30 minutes even to be approached for the drinks order (we tried endlessly to attract the waitresses attention0-about 45 minutes for meal order to be taken - then when the starters arrived they were not ours and were whisked away... meanwhile the staff and the manager seemed very busy but were achieving nothing -the place was busy by now but nobody had eaten anything.
We were told finally that 2 of our starter were not available so the manager suggested a 'special' prawn and mushroom dish that was 'exceptionally tasty' -so rather than wait another 20 minutes for the menu to reappear we accepted -very foolish!!The starters appeared and the 'specials' were disgusting and left 3/4 unfinished.
After 1 hour the main food finally arrived -well one dish did -a plate of cold rice with some pita and a tiny bit of lamb in it -no sign of the 3 other dishes.The manager disputed the coldness of the rice so we put a spoonful onto his palm!!The whole restaurant was full of disgruntled customers with no food and staff disappearing into the kitchen and re-appearind with no food but looking so busy.The manager was strolling around avoiding looking at anyone or speaking to his staff.
Following a discussion with the manager we offered to pay for our drinks but the manager was so flustered he just told us to leave!!So we did ......if we hadn't we would have been there 'til midnight! 5 minutes later we spoke to some Norwegians who had been in there at the same time and they told us the manager had finally lost it and sacked one of the waitresses who had shown the greatest talent for aimlessly wandering up and down without carrying a menu,a glass,plate or speaking to anyone.Perhaps this was a step in the right direction.Fortunately they thought this was hilarious and at least we have a funny story to tell.The other real good news was that the gig was fantastic -thanks Roger.Avoid this place at all costs!!!!
