Square Meal Review of Kenza ?

Kenza translates as ‘treasure’ from Arabic, and this subterranean Lebanese venue certainly lives up to its name. The vast dining room, reached down a lantern-filled spiral stairwell, is a Moroccan cave of elaborate ironwork, etched brass tables and pillow-strewn couches, creating a “fantastic ambience”. The venture is part of Algerian-born restaurateur Tony Kitous’s stable (alongside the Comptoir Libanais chain), with a kitchen focusing on home-style Middle Eastern cooking that ranges from meze and kibbeh (stuffed cracked-wheat parcels) to moussaka and charcoal-grilled meats.

A collection of Lebanese and Moroccan wines is supported by pricier international bottles, and there’s also a separate cocktail lounge.

    Her Favourite Food :: Kenza

    Kenza oozes swank as soon as you walk through the door.

    Diners are greeted with beautiful interiors inspired by a distinct Middle Eastern theme, including rich fabrics, carved tables, low seating and glittering lamp light. Not only does it instantly engage the eyes, but Kenza pleases the other senses too, by playing aptly relaxing music which mingles in with the mysterious scents of incense sticks...
