Freshly refurbished in shades of blingy black, silver & gold, this sleek Lebanese has a lot going for it & remains a resounding hit with the neighbourhood’s glamorous girls & boys. Friendly, deferential staff serve all manner of high-quality kebabs, grills, stews & familiar mezze platters, although readers also appreciate the kitchen’s ‘refreshing take’ on the old repertoire – witness lamb tartare or roast fish with tahini sauce & citrus fruit. 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. What was a below-ground extension of the dining room has been transformed into a foxy late-night bar, called LayaLina Privée, with glitter balls, oscillating coloured lights & pumping music – post-prandial cocktails are half-price down here.
