Maison Du Mezze - Leicester Square
The most amazing restaurant I’ve ate in! Couldn’t fault it one bit and can’t wait to go again m!
Lively atmosphere in central London.
very good experience. although it is in the middle of central London, it feels like a warm secret hideaway from the hustle and bustle directly outside. lovely food and great welcoming staff!
Apon arrival our table of 8 were seated at a table set for 6 and we were told we could all squeeze on , I said is there no where else we can be seated and the waitress informed me that there was a larger table upstairs. I wasn’t sure why we weren’t seated there in the first place. When I booked I was told the deposit would be taken off the total bill however we were given a voucher available for the valentines menu , our waiter was very helpful and sorted this issue for us , aside from these issues the food was lovely and atmosphere was also enjoyable, one meal was missed however they put this meal on the house which we all appreciated, I would recommend this restaurant however due to the food and location, very suited for a nice meal out with friends or a loved one
Starters were nice, the mint tea was good. That was it. Mains were average at best and disgustingly overpriced. Service was terrible. Was forced to pay a deposit over the phone ‘because the restaurant was overbooked’ (frankly If you are unable to manage your own booking system then that isn’t my problem) then when it came to paying the bill they claimed to have no knowledge of this deposit being paid. Was overall a very average yet expensive dinner. Would not recommend.
The Kebabs were amazing, and the service was the best. And Location in the middle of Leicester Square cannot be better!
Both food and staff were absolutely amazing, especially Amer who did his very best for me and my son as we celebrated our birthdays. Thanks for the dessert recommendation, Amer. I loved that pudding.
We had an excellent meal and the food was delicious. The staff were friendly and helpful and we would certainly visit again.
Already raved to the family about this. Went with friends for a double birthday celebration. The staff bent over backwards to ensure we had everything we wanted or needed.
Considering the location right in the centre of London's tourist heartland, I hadn't expected the kind of service and atmosphere one would have visiting a local independent restaurant outside of London. The food was hot and tasty, the meat succulent and well flavoured and cooked. We finished our mezze far too quickly - so tasty. As a recently diagnosed coeliac, I could not eat the flat bread or the rice, which was traditionally cooked with angel-hair pasta. However, the menu was sufficiently extensive that this did not compromise my ability to enjoy a full meal.
The service was prompt and attentive. I would heartily recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys lebanese food, even if you have had the pleasure of experiencing home-cooked fare before. Enjoyed my meal immensely.
Unfriendly to the point if aggressive service and high pressure to over order food resulting in a lot of waste and a huge bill.
What a lovely way to spend a Friday evening with old friends. This restaurant is clean, friendly, good value and has great staff who managed to deliver a perfect level of attentiveness. They noticed when we needed something, yet they never rushed us. In addition it's great to find somewhere that feels like an independent restaurant, right on Leicester Square and just steps from the station. Thanks guys for a great night.
The restaurant has a great atmosphere and delicious food. We found the drink prices reasonable but the food prices a little high.
Overall a good experience and some good food. The staff were knowledgeable of the food, polite and very pleasant. The chicken sheesh was a little dry and also a bit smelly which put me off a little bit. Everything else we ordered was tasty. A little bit overpriced for the quality of food.
Service was awful. They brought the wrong food to our table. They came to is 7 times in the first 10 minutes of us being there to ask what we wanted to eat, even though was asked them to come back in 10 minutes. Food was awful, definitely not worth the money.
Al Rajiv salad, hot mezze and 2 kids pizzas-all phenomenal!!!!
Loved the food and the atmosphere!
We only had 7 tapas style dishes, 1 bottle of wine, 2 glasses of red and 4 cocktails. Party of 4 people and bill was £182!!! We were in a rush to get to the theatre but I wish I'd checked the bill as that cannot be correct. I might go again but would check prices beforehand and the bill carefully. Ambience and staff are lovely but food average and prices too expensive. Unless my bill was incorrect.
A waitress has added things to our bill that we had not then so order it Was forced to recalculate
Abbiamo pranzato in questo ristorante per incontrare amici a noi molto cari. L'ambiente è molto gradevole, il cibo buono e il sevizio affidabile. Pulito e di buon gusto. Siamo rimasti tutti molto soddisfatti! Consigliato!
Great Lebanese food in the heart of London! Hookah is a bit pricey - but our server Anntonella was wonderful & very helpful.
Bit overpriced for what you get, but my main issue was the bad customer service (inattentive and slow). Also the music would intermittently get very loud, as if you were in a club.
The food was very good although the bread was cold we had booked for the pre theatre menu at 19.95 which should have included a glass of proseco which we did'nt get. We were seated inside as requested when I booked online which was fine but we did find it was'nt very warm because the outside door was constantly opened. I think because of location the menu can be costly but we avoided a high bill because of our choice of menu except for the fact that the bottled water is £5 !! Altogether a nice experience staff were pleasant but will try somewhere warmer next time!
A complete scam! Overpriced entrees don’t come with any sides (aka are meat only) and then a small bowl of rice is £4.50. As soon as we realized this, we paused on ordering- at which time the waitstaff became extremely rude and trickstery (specifically we had reduced our wine order from 2 bottles to 1 and despite clearly hearing us, brought out 2 bottles; we had to tell him multiple times we only wanted 1). Then, we went to order 1 larger app and, sure enough, they coincidentally sold out. Highly do NOT recommend
Amazing food amazing service.
It’s a bit expensive shisha £45 for basic pot.
Maybe they need to reconsider their shisha prices.
Stopped in for a quick meal before going to the theatre. The food was good but our waiter seemed unhappy that we didn't order more food. He even went as far as to question why we didn't order more and assumed we were unfamiliar with Lebanese food. (We are not) I said we had eaten a large lunch and weren't very hungry. We sat at a table next to the kitchen and 3 times our waiter spoke to other waitstaff and then they both turned around to stare, obviously talking about us. No idea why but waiter was being very rude. I do not recommend!
Just perfect !! Had best meal ever!
Thank you all and happy new year
The starter was overcooked. I think the food is overpriced.
The food arrived very cold and hard and we asked them to change it but it came back cold and we still ate it just for the sake of it and then one the waiters took my plate of bread and just left and didn’t bring it back . Also the value is not worth it . They put us next to the door where it was freezing cold when we asked to move they said there’s no tables but they were letting people in and towards the end one very nice waitress moved us upstairs and sang happy birthday for my friend which improved the visit by a bit but still the experience was bad . We paid a total of £170 for 4 people and felt it was not worth it .
The place was beautifully decorated. The reception we received was next to none. Our waiter was miserable and not very helpful. He was not smiling and when we weren't ready to orderz he rolled his eyes and walked away. I understand he may have been having a bad day but customer service should always be on point. We were sat to the left of the door and there was a constant breeze of cold air, as the doors were left open on a Winter's evening. The food was average but the location was great. Overall, an average experience
Great location, staff very friendly and food was great. Would definitely recommend.
As always this place delivered on all aspects. To say it is in the most touristic location in London takes away nothing from the personal and attentive service and excellent food.
Food was lovely and we had some very helpful menu suggestions from a member of staff, good value for the food but didn't notice there would be quite a high service charge of £10 added to our meal which was a disappointment to an otherwise fantastic meal.
£5 for a bottle of water? Spot the tourist trap.
Grossly overpriced. If you are looking for Lebanese food then London offers some fantastic spots at a fraction of the price. Don’t be fooled by this place and instead walk a bit further up the road.
What a lovely surprise this restaurant and our meal was. All freshly cooked and generous proportions were very pleasing. We enjoyed the pre theatre menu and it was excellent. The location of the restaurant is so central and close to many theatres and the west end shopping. We will go back again. Thanks for the great meal and service.
Accomadating bookings, pricy menu, majority friendly staff
Excellent food in a very pleasant place!
Will definitely come back
Always great food here and the customer service is excellent. The food costs a little more but it is worth it. Great location too.
We had a terrible experience here. Having booked a table for my wife’s birthday meal, we were met by an uninterested women at reception asking us If we would like to be seated outside in the freezing cold, we politely told her we had reserved indoor seating, we were then taken to a table in a corridor and asked to sit side by side. She then left us for what seemed like 10-15 mins and came back with another table sat right next to a couple again side by side. She was rude and by this time we had enough and walked out. Please avoid at all costs, clearly the restaurant does not understand the concept of making a reservation. Poor service and rude staff. We will not be returning again.
