Looking good in shades of blingy black, silver and gold, this sleek Lebanese has a lot going for it and remains a resounding hit with the neighbourhood’s glamour-struck girls and boys. Capable staff serve up all manner of familiar hot and cold mezze (hummus, tabbouleh, falafel etc), plus high-quality kebabs, grills and stews for carnivores and veggies alike, but also look for perky riffs on the old repertoire – witness sautéed sea bass fillet with lemon and saffron sauce. On a summer’s day, the plate glass doors are pushed back to allow alfresco dining; by night, entertainment ranges from sinuous belly dancing to live music. Below stairs is LayaLina Privée, a foxy late-night bar complete with glitter balls, oscillating coloured lights and pumping music – post-prandial cocktails are half-price down here.
