SquareMeal Review of Abd el Wahab

Bronze Award

Abd el Wahab has many locations around the world, mainly in the Middle East, with their flagship restaurant in Lebanon. The Belgravia location is sleek and unfussy, the décor, as was explained by the manager, is reminiscent of the original, with the upmarket Lebanese restaurant’s signature living wall and design features.

The restaurant seemed to be a regular spot for Middle Eastern residents of the area, which boded well. The waiter took our order and gave us advice on some dishes we should order, which we took, and soon the table was heavily laden with vibrant mezze, as hummus, fattouch, and a conveyer belt of Lebanese classics were brought in.

The aubergine fatteh, a recommendation, was the standout mezze dish, featuring perfectly cooked aubergine in a yoghurt and tahini sauce, topped with crispy fried bread. The salad and dips were as expected, the moutabbal was great, but the bread could have been fresher. Garlickly batata kazbra were tasty, and the spinach fatayer was also delicious - bright and fragrant, packing a punch. Cheese shanklish was the only disappointing dish, as we’ve had better renditions.

Ouzzi, a typical Lebanese meat dish of slow-roasted lamb was authentically executed, but was not very exciting. The seabass, which was beautifully grilled and crispy, shone brightly. Skewered chicken with a thumping garlic sauce was also very good. The mezze were left on the table to go with our mains, which is how Lebanese should be eaten – as a proper eye-popping feast.

Dessert was just as spectacular, a pretty dish comprising of three Lebanese puddings – milk pudding, clotted cream ice cream, and traditional candy floss; and was rounded off with a warming glass of white coffee featuring orange blossom and pine nuts.

Abd el Wahab does not aim to reinvent the wheel; instead they promote authentic Lebanese fare with a high-class flourish. If the local Lebanese crowd is happy, you will be more than impressed by the restaurant’s selection of mezze and main courses. Plus the service is impeccable and accommodating, with staff who know their menu well.
