Squaremeal Review of Al Waha ?

Londoners love Lebanese food, especially the meze: the lavish spread of salads, dips and grills dressed with garlic, lemon and oil and served with warm flatbread and plump olives. What makes the difference is atmosphere and service, and Al Waha has been attracting locals, food critics and newcomers for nearly 20 years with its dignified staff and satisfying cooking. We can vouch for the silky hummus, as well as the kibbeh (deep-fried patties of minced lamb and pine nuts), and the pastry triangles stuffed with walnuts and spices. The charcoal grill gives an irresistible smoky edge to pickled aubergines, lamb and chicken, as well as whole fish served with a hot, spicy sauce. The dining room is on two levels, decorated with masses of greenery and fine calligraphy on the walls. Outside there’s a small terrace with pots of olive and bay trees. “Solid and consistently good” notes a regular.

You can make an entire meal just of the incredible starters — and...
