We were thoroughly impressed with the quality of the food. The atmosphere was great and the staff were friendly and attentive, but still gave you space to enjoy your meal. There were quite a few people in the restaurant, which was a good sign and we would definitely go back.

We had the best night. Lebanese is our favorite cuisine, so they had a tough gig. They achieved it and more. The food was so fresh and absolutely stunning. The tarot card reader was a lovely lady (hope her 3 month prediction is correct, I'm coming into a lot of money apparently) the belly dancer was fabulous also. A great night and would return again and again

We got the banquet in a group of six. The hommous, baba guanoush, cheese, vine leaves and other dishes were to die for. I was in heaven. There was lots to eat. However, we had to keep on top of the staff to get the food for our vegetarian friend, and the meats could have been a little better (except for the lamb, it was great). Thoroughly happy, would go back again, and again.

We have visited the Arabian Lounge a few times. The food on all occasions has been nice, however sometimes staff are a little quick at bringing it out. They just need to space it out a little between starters and mains.
We always get salads and dips for starters. The dips are amazing and the bread they serve with it is delicious.
We always have the skewers as a main dish and they have always been nice.
They are licenced but have BYO wine only ( except for the Christmas period).
They have had Belly Dancers as entertainment each time we have been ( Saturday nights). At Christmas they also played modern music after the entertainment and there was an area where people could get up and dance. I'm not sure if they do this every weekend.
The restaurant looks fantastic - beautiful fabric draped for decoration and nice lighting. It's a nice place to go with a few people for a good night out.

The food we received was great however was nothing like advertised. We were expecting full on Kebabs and platters of food as this is what they advertise all over the internet. We went for all you can eat at a reserved table.
We instead were put in a little table for two, surrounded by two large functions. The all you can eat was not all you can eat. We received one little meat skewer platter that had enough meat for my other half only. Let me assure you, she usually leaves food on her plate as she eats rather minimally, but there simply was not enough.
We were given stale lebanese bread and what appeared to be simple masterfoods dipping breads.
The service was atrocious, basically non existent. I had to goto the bar for tap water, to order our meals, and to get the bill in order to pay. The only time we really received good service was as they were thanking us for coming and telling us to come again.... I think not.

I would not recommend this place unless you are going in a large group, as I hear the functions are actually good.
