Square Meal Review of Al Waha ?

Meaning ‘oasis’ in Arabic, this long-standing eatery is a little haven of quality for those hankering after Lebanese food. Done up smartly but with the minimum of fuss – think tiled floors, white tablecloths and Arabic calligraphy – it puts the emphasis firmly on the food, with dish after dish of zingy, perfectly spiced mezze topping the bill. Hummus, fattoush, tabbouleh and other staples are all present and correct, although a hot starter of minced lamb and pine nuts baked on Lebanese bread is to die for. A charcoal grill kicks out tender koftas, shawarmas and lamb cutlets, while commendable set menus suit those who want to place their trust in the kitchen. Surprisingly, the wine list picks some decent French bottles – although the hooch of choice is arak (a traditional spirit made from grapes and green anise).
