Aline was created from a desire to share my family’s food traditions. My love for Lebanese food comes from my mother, Aline. A Passionate home cook, famous for gathering her friends and family around her long table placed in the heart of a bucolic garden we call “Le Jardin d’Aline”. Meals have always been a way for her to teach my sisters and I about our Lebanese heritage. In summer we often enjoyed “Siyadiyeh”, a freshly caught sea bass served with a fisherman’s risotto native to Tyre, my mother’s hometown and in winter we would all gather in the kitchen eagerly waiting for the slow cooked lamb for her famous “Fatteh”. Our dishes are a modern take on everyday Lebanese comfort food served in a cozy thirty seat restaurant in Mayfair . Our ingredients are responsibly sourced and prepared with care, with a menu that offers the best of Lebanese food in all its authenticity. We look forward to seeing you soon! Tarek Farah

Food is fresh but not much seasoning. Was unimpressed with the grilled meats and a lot of the cold mezze were very sour.

Really nice supper before the theatre. A rare find in an area which doesn't have the best restaurants. Good for vegetarians. Well worth a visit.

Great food and service, but the tables are so small and tightly packed together, it’s difficult to fit even the smallest amount of plates on there. And getting to your seat between tables without knocking something is almost impossible. Shame as the food and service was great but the seating really affected the experience.

Service very friendly, food fresh, tasty and authentic. Waitress was very accommodating. Quite a small restaurant so almost a cafe feel, but quite intimate while remaining casual and relaxed.

The Fatush & Baba Ganoush are both excellent! Don't bother with the king prawns as they didn't taste fresh.

Having lived in the middle east I am always dubious about restaurants that claim to be authentic. However the food was amazing. Large portions, good value and excellent service. Definitely a go again kind of place.

There is no pretence here, or grandeur, despite the five star location - this place is just what it says it is ‘a Lebanese Kitchen’, but it’s wonderful, and the food is absolutely outstanding. Lots of little plates of deliciousness - I especially loved the Shish Taok (marinated chicken pieces) with garlicky yoghurt sauce and taboulleh. The staff are lovely, not intrusive, just friendly and helpful. Really excellent little place.

This is a small place tucked away near the bustling Oxford Circus area. Overall a great experience the manager and the waitresses were all very nice and fast with service. Food was excellent all the dishes we had were fresh and had great flavour. We didn’t realise until paying the bill that they had accidentally given us the wrong dishes on top of what we ordered but they didn’t make a fuss and didn’t charge us extra for it so was much appreciated. We would highly recommend this place for overall great local Lebanese food.

Lovely Lebanese restaurant tucked away in a quiet Mayfair street. Staff were very nice and food just out of this world! Definitely recommend this place if you are getting tired of chain restos like Maroush.

It was a nice place, not something extraordinary though. We ordered spicy hummus and batata harrah. The hummus was really nice and we loved it. However, batata harrah was just fried potatoes with little garnish and was not good at all. I would avoid it. The chicken kebabs were nice too.

The food was really great, the waitress helped us choose the wine as we were not familiar with Lebanese wine. Was the perfect choice. Great place to have a catch up and will be returning.

Cosy place with authentic food and friendly service. We had three starter plates between two people and a main course each and it was plenty of food (no room for dessert) and the wine list had a good choice of Lebanese wines. Would eat there again.

This restaurant is tucked away, lovely ambiance, cozy and romantic. We did the set course, which was good value and we could try many things. Of course they served Lebanese red wine which is always a treat.
