It's a nice restaurant, great service and good food
Its lovely cozy familly restaurant and very very friendly staff .thanks and we coming back very soon
Friendly cozy restaurant offering good mezze. Tajine and other mains were lacking spice and a bit bland for moroccan dishes but overall good for a reasonable price. Wine offered by the glass is only house wine and Lebanese which was unfortunately not to my liking. Shame that the choice is slightly limited! Service is friendly, fast and caring. We came as a small group and liked the atmosphere and many sharing plates to choose from.
Good food and lovely environment. The noise was louder than we have liked due to a big party next to us. The staff were friendly but took some time to serve us. It would have been nice to have more food options on the menu.
Excellent food and service. I have eaten here many times and have always been happy. Good options for vegetarians with starters and mains.
Great menu so that there was lots for us to choose from. The food was very tasty and good portion size. Friendly and knowledgeable servers and I am looking forward to returning for a meal.
Waiter got our order numerous times, portion is very small for the price, and the waiter gave us attitude when we told them they got our order wrong. Overall, there are much better Middle Eastern restaurants in Ealing area.
On an overnight stay in a nearby hotel and went here basically because it was close, had good reviews and we are complete strangers to the area. Prosecco tasted like it had been heavily watered down, otherwise it was the most insipid we've ever tasted; red house wine was a poor match for spicy foods; food was excellent; staff efficient and pleasant.
Wonderful food, super quick service, lovely staff.
Lovely decor inside, I appreciated when they turned the music on and lights down a little as it felt a bit more private then.
I actually quite liked how there weren’t too many people as it felt more peaceful.
Definitely will come again; it’s a hidden gem!
Really enjoyed Leila. Great food at a good price and really nice place overall. My wife is going back this week with her friends!!
The food was absolutely delicious and huge portion sizes. The service was excellent and very friendly staff.
We requested the afternoon tea and had confirmed this via an Instragram post. I booked via Open Table which gave no option / text box to request afternoon tea. We arrived at 1pm and were advised it would take a little while to prepare. We received the afternoon tea at 2.40 pm and it was for 2 people and there were 3 of us! We had the afternoon tea free in the end.
Didn't rate the afternoon tea, some cakes were stale and no fresh scones but as we were hungry, we ordered some hot food, which was rather nice.
The service was appalling to keep us waiting so long without any update, despite us requesting one and being told it was because we hadn't specified an afternoon tea when we had!
I celebrated by birthday in Leila’s with a groups of 10 people.
Bookingorocess was smooth and we did get the separate area which was a nice touch.
Food was good, wouldn’t say exceptional, tagine was worth trying for sure.
Service however was below average: visibly untrained and scared looking waiter, at times I wasn’t sure I was understood at all, repeatedly asking to clear used plates and clean the table, chase for drinks etc
The most unpleasant point though was the music. It was so loud, to the point where we couldn’t hear each other whilst being sat less than half a meter away. Asked repeatedly to turn it down, but it kept on coming back on every time. Point to note: entire area was taken by 3 birthday parties which did not look like groups who were after loud music. No one danced but instead tried to have a chat with friends. So there was no place or time for music blasting. Lights went on at 11 signaling us to leave.
Overall, it was just about ok but won’t be coming back.
Dear KseniaB, Thanks for the review. On the day of your booking we also had a number of other groups celebrating birthday celebrations. We appreciate the birthday song became annoying but it is always played for a birthday. As you were aware we very busy that night and we did try and keep wait times minimal but service levels will be affected. We do hope you will return. Thanks
Food was not great, the chicken was dry maybe I was unlucky this time.
Delicious food. Nice people Great service Reasonably priced too
JanetS, Thanks for the review. Delighted you enjoyed the dining experience with us and look forward to welcoming you again soon. Thanks Leila management
The guys who served us were nice and the food was totally what I have been looking for when I chose Leila. I am sure I will come back for the lamb tagine with cous cous.
Ruben, Thanks for leaving us a review. We are happy you enjoyed your dining experience and were so impressed you will return. We are sure you will be just as impressed with the Tagine. See you soon Leila management
Lovely food and great service. Am looking forward to going in the evening, when I believe it'll be livelier.

As a family business we convey our passion for Lebanese and Moroccan cuisine and bring it to the people of Ealing. We are delighted you enjoyed your dining experience with us. Have you tried our afternoon tea? Please do give it a try and let us know what you think. See you again soon Leila management
Ok overall but nothing special.
The humous (and I love humous) was too spicy and lost the taste that I associate with this dish.
The halumi was obviously cooked in a frying pan which had been used for steak as it tasted strongly of beef. also halumi was very thick. Would have benefitted from being sliced in half.
Main courses of lamb kebab and sea bass were both really good.
Chip side dish very nice indeed.
Hi GabrielE, Thanks for the review you have left. Our spicy hummus is just that, full of spice and flavour, a firm favourite with many diners. Did you mention to your server the hummus was too spicy? Had we known we would have rectified this immediately for you. It seems we have let you down on this occasion. We promise you on your next visit it will be of the level we expect here at Leila, and will also meet your expectations. Please do come and try us again. Thanks Leila management
I was treated like a long lost friend. Food was delicious and service was exceptional. I especially recommend the mint lemonade - the sharpness is perfect for the food.
Audrey, We are so delighted you took the time to try us.We are even more delighted that we were able to exceed your expectations. Online feedback is precious to us and we are thankful you took the time to let us know about your experience with us.Please don't make it a once in a lifetime! We really look forward to serving you for many years to come Thank you for the recommendation and see you again soon. Leila management
