Food good, premises small, gets crowded, popular, must book
Unforunately the restaurant was closed when I got there. I received no e-mail or notification for this fact and we had to find another restaurant at short notice. Judging by the new name "permanently closed" maybe this is the end of the restaurant?
A pity given the good reviews.
Amoul's food is always delicious & fresh. Great service & atmosphere....wish it was open for coffee in the morning like the old days!
Unique intimate informal restaurant with truly exceptional home cooking. Best Lebanese food I have experienced in London.
Amoul's is a special place that oozes genuine character and charm, with beautiful food. And it's imitate and cosy as well, with great service. And very obliging - a locely spot.
Lovely neighborhood restaurant, nice homely atmosphere, server was sweet and helpful!
Wonderful and friendly with excellent food and wine choices. Above all the staff make this such a special location and the food is GREAT!
Except to wait for the main meal to be ready. The owner is cooking every meal herself, as soon as order comes through.
This place is amazingly authentic. The food is excellent and so is the service. If you are in the neighbourhood looking for a meal it is a no miss.
I reckon it is good place to bring your date as the ambience is defo there.
Food was fantastic. Loved it. The smoky baba ganoush was to die for. Nice wine too.
This restaurant is in our neighborhood and I can't believe we waited so long to try it. I promise it won't be so long before we return. Everything from the starters to the mains to the Lebanese wine was fantastic! We've found a new favorite. Service was attentive and charming too?
Went to Amoul's on the basis of Jay Rayner's review and we were not disappointed. Nice little restaurant, with good atmosphere. Easy to park on road nearby in the evening. Menu is quite different from other restaurants we have been to, however everything we had really got the taste buds going. This is food which is going to impress on the taste rather than the presentation. The dishes recommended in the review were all good and we particularly liked the aubergine starter and the fabulous" meat loaf". Sorry cannot remember the Lebanese names. The staff were really nice andwe got the impression that nothing was too much trouble.
Will definitely go back
Great dishes, absolutely love the laid back local neighbourhood family restaurant vibe of the place. A perfect place to have a catchup and chat. The dishes are not all what you may have come to expect either! Some variety in amongst the old favourites done well.
A very nice family run restaurant. Food is honest and good, friendly service, minimalistic ambience, but it feels really cosy and nice. I like that food is not rushed, sometimes at busy times (I.e., Friday evening) one needs to wait a bit, as they are overloaded with orders. They always come to tell and apologise, but actually I do not mind, it's more important they serve freshly prepared nice food, and one can relax with a glass of wine without being rushed. I really like the honesty of this place. If I had a wish list - it would be to start serving Lebanese coffee, which would be great after the meal. Always happy to come back there!
Wonderful character restaurant, Host supplies plenty of useful information to ensure good selection of her wonderful food. An extremely pleasurable experience... Try it.
Very nice food, simple and delicious. But very overpriced for what it is. You can get the same ambience and quality for far less elsewhere in London.
Service felt somehow condescending and a little rude.
For these reasons I don't think we would be returning.
The way it should be as opposed to the way you usually find it on Edgware Road. Great fresh, refined flavors, very fresh. Charming service. Nice wine selection. Lovely evening.
Good food, service wasnt that great which was a shame.
Little choice, mostly pastry based, not to our taste
Very different from your standard Lebanese. Not an expert but seemed pretty authentic. Plates not overloaded with food and did not require a colonic lavage or trip to the emergency room. In other words, clean, wholesome, delicious food. The homemade hummus was creamy and very tasty, the kibbeh was different and interesting and the poussin was cooked to perfection with the garlic cream on the side so as not to overwhelm the dish. The atmosphere is very quaint and the service was attentive. A brief discussion about the ingredients revealed a passions for what is being offered. I highly recommend the this little gem of a place which I will certainly be returning to!
From the vine leaves to kousa mahshi, Amoul's is what we all crave - home-cooked meals that warm you from the inside out. An absolute pleasure, every time.
Excellent truly home cooked Lebanese food. For those who are familiar with Lebanese cuisine the quality by far exceeds what is offered in most much better known establishments. Truly a hidden gem!
We booked the restaurant for a catch up dinner with a friend. The restaurant was tucked away in a lovely part of Little Venice, The ambience was rustic and welcoming. The service was very good. We ordered a selection of starters. The portions were generous. The selection of kibbeh was great. The tabbouleh was a bit soggy compared to others I have tried.
We would certainly recommend a visit.
Amouls food is fresh, delicious and consistently so. Amoul cooks everything on the menu - so you are guarenteed fresh 10 out of 10 food. The menu varies daily but there is plenty of choice. We had the Baba Ganoush with some wrap bread and some pastries to start. The Mushroom kibbeh was particularly delicious, but it was all tasty. We had sea bass and poussin for mains. The Sea bass was cooked to perfection, and was accompanied by a side order of spinach. This was a light meal choice and the Poussin was outstanding. My only regret was not being able to eat it all - but I was slightly stuffed from a late lunch!The actual restaurant has a nice relaxed feel to it and we will be back for more of Amouls signature cooking in the future.
Relaxed environment where you felt instantly at home. Food was very good and the service prompt friendly and helpful.
Food was very good and definitely will return
I visited Amoul's with my husband recently. The staff are so welcoming and friendly, they are young but professional.
The food was a mixed bag- the mezze/starters were delectable but the main was not as good- although don't get me wrong the food was overall pretty tasty!!
My husband and even me (I am tiny) felt that the portions were rather small, especially for the price particularly with regards to the mains.
The ambience was lovely and of course formosa street is one of the nicest streets in London- overall I would recommend this restaurant.
Cosy, attractive interior. Very attentive and friendly staff. Classic pop songs playing in back ground brought a smile.
A delicious menu that combines the comfort of home cooking with a more exotic Lebanese twist.
Thoroughly enjoyable experience
I don't cook ever so spend a fair amount of money and time in restaurants around Maida Vale and St Johns Wood and I can tell you this one is a keeper. The desserts are OK but nowhere near as good as the starters or main dishes! Highly recommendable!
Amouls's is the most wonderful Lebanese restaurant in the heart of Little Venice. Amoul serves fresh and beautiful dishes and delicious Lebanese wines too.
We had an excellent light meal of Lebanese specialties. The service is also excellent.
