This stylish Lebanese restaurant and cocktail lounge is found near the end of the Central Line in South Woodford, and comes complete with an outdoor terrace round the back. The snazzy interiors include marble-topped tables as well as group-friendly teal booths, while Middle Eastern-style lamps and tiled floors are subtle nods to the kitchen’s Lebanese roots.
The extensive menu is made up of sharing plates, flatbreads and halal meats. Homemade falafel, hummus and moutabal are made freshly for each service, alongside the likes of grilled halloumi and stuffed vine leaves. Charcoal-grilled meats served with dips and flatbreads are at the heart of the mains, but there are also dishes for vegetarians and vegans, including a selection of vibrant salads.
You can finish your meal with homemade baklava, or if you want something more substantial, there’s the likes of chocolate fudge cake and a rose-scented milk pudding. To drink, there are cocktails and a dedicated gin and tonic menu, while teetotallers can opt for a fruit-based mocktail.
