This is fast becoming our favourite local place to go... and it seems its popularity is increasing with others, too. Food tastes fresh and healthy, garnished with plenty of flavours. A nice place for a date, with plenty of options on the menu and enough atmosphere to keep conversation flowing. Hungry thinking about it now!

As a lebanese person i can honestly say, this is one of the best lebanese restaurants i have been to in London!
The food is authentic, super fresh and i dont think i’ve had quicker service anywhere else before!
The atmosphere is basic and simple, but cosy!
Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for fairly priced delicious food!

Meza is a bustling restaurant. Meals are cooked to order in full view of diners in the main room in the front. The cuisine is contemporary Lebanese , with a good range of vegetarian options (including several bean dishes) in addition to delicious chicken and lamb variations. The red and white Lebanese house wine is delicious and reasonably priced. The service is attentive and friendly. We were initially seated next to a very noisy party in the back room, and the Meza team were happy to reseat us in the front with a minimum of fuss.

As always, a delicious meal, service was a bit slow as there was only 1 waitress but it didn’t affect our enjoyment.
Lunch box meal deal has increased by £1 to £7 take away & £8 eat in (despite the advertisement outside displaying the old prices) but still good value.

Food was delicious and fresh. Great value for money - we had 8 mesa between 4 and a mixed grill. Very friendly service. Don't be put off by how small it looks, there's more space inside!

Meza is a superb choice for those who enjoy informal dining on delicious Lebanese food, cooked in full view by the energetic and talented kitchen team. The place is cramped, noisy and great fun, and usually busy. Reservations are recommended. Afternoons tend to be quieter. The menu features a broad range of meat, fish and vegetable options, cooked to order. The house Lebanese wines - a crisp white and a rich, well-balanced red - are both good, and offer value.

A group of us went to Meza last Friday night and had an amazing evening.
I had booked it based on a recommendation from a friend but didn't quite know what to expect as she said "it is a small restaurant".
Upon arrival, you could mistake the front of the restaurant for a takeaway, but the actual seating for restaurant diners is at the back and is lovely and cosy.
The meal was delicious and our waiter was extremely attentive.
I think we stayed longer than the average diner but the staff were patient and didn't rush us out like some restaurants would.
Overall, we had a wonderful time and I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Have eaten at Meza several times and would continue to recommend. Good, authentic, tasty food. Always find another Meza dish we haven't tried that usually surprises. It was a little bit frantic this evening, it seemed at least one staff was taking the night off and they were a little too busy for the staff they had, but overall didn't distract too much. The staff were friendly as ever and apologetic for the slight frantic nature of the service.

Excellent! We had booked for party of 8 but due to tube problems, some were arriving much later. The waitress was great and accommodated us, letting us in batches and probably staying at the table for longer thsn we would have done if we had all started eating at the same time. Food was lovely.

Absolutely delicious food, we only paid 50 pounds for 3 people with a bottle of prosecco and liqueur, one of the waiters was a bit overbearing and chatty though which was a bit uncomfortable.

The only complaint is that the tables aren't big enough to fit all the vast amount of food you want to eat. Utterly delicious.
