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. 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

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.

Great location, so much to do in the area before and after. The food was incredible, we had a great time. The cocktail list was a bit limited but the food selection made up for it.

What it lacked in atmosphere (had a cafe feel rather than restaurant feel) it made up for in food and service. Really wonderful for both. Thoroughly recommend.

An enjoyable place near busy Oxford Street, but without all the fuss. As with many Mediterranean restaurants, it's possible to have a light or a big meal. The food was very tasty and the restaurant was quiet enough for conversation.

We found this wonderful restaurant when we were in London a year ago and we were so happy to eat there again this year. It is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant owned by a lovely young couple. Wonderful food and restaurant design. The flavors and quality of the food was fantastic. Make sure to leave room for desert. I am already looking forward to going next year when I am in London for the same conference.

My second visit in two months, again to meet up with a girlfriend over supper on a Monday evening. As a vegetarian, there were many options to choose from the appealing Lebanese mezze dishes. We chose to share a number of these. My carnivore friend was more than happy to share the vegetarian dishes of Baba Ganouj, Pumpkin Kibbeh and delicious roast cauliflower and only had the one meat dish of small sausages. We had five plates between us, which was more than ample. I had a couple of glasses of Arak, which is a refreshing aperitif on a summer evening, but thought the £7 cost of each was too high. We shared a bottle of Picpoul which complemented the meal very well. Service was attentive and friendly. the location near Oxford Circus Tube, but hidden in a quiet side street is ideal. I would definitely come back again!

The food we were served wasn’t amazing. The mezze dishes were mostly OK. However, the Kibbeh was serves still cold inside and the spicy prawns were dry as a bone. But, it only got worse for the main courses. The grills were burnt and yet served cold. But, the service was attentive and accommodating. Also, the price wasn’t bad either.

Mid-week dinner with two girlfriends. I had returned from India practically vegan, was certainly looking for vegetarian option and Aline fitted the bill, while keeping the other two carnivores happy. In fact, one chose only vegetarian options anyway, while the other complemented her dishes with a sea bass option. We had a selection of mezze, which were all delicious. Particularly notable was the roast cauliflower dish, which was so good we ordered it again! Baba ghanouj also excellent, as were the falafel. I had an Arak to start, the girls G&Ts. We shared a bottle of Prosecco, and I had another Arak to finish - it was so refreshing and a perfect foil to the food. It is a small place but does not feel cramped, just cosy. Empty when we arrived at 7.30, but buzzing convivially later on. Central location near Oxford Circus convenient for all. Service was friendly and charming. Would definitely go again.

We were the only ones in the restaurant so maybe he ambience was a little strange, but the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Love this little Lebanese restaurant that’s tucked away on Maddox Street. The food is amazing, and the team is running the place with the typical Lebanese charm. Love the Shish Taouk, Kibbeh and Fattoush! I could eat here every day, literally.
