Leave the bustle of London’s ‘theatreland’ behind you for the buzz and charm of the Middle East! Maison du Mezzé is the Capital’s best Middle-East dining experience, offering authentic Lebanese-inspired brunch, lunch and dinner dishes with the warmest hospitality. All dishes are freshly prepared daily in the restaurant kitchen using the finest seasonal produce and, of course, spices and herbs from our Middle East heartland. The interior is set over two floors and all part of the Middle-East experience with Arabian carpets and artwork, gilded ceiling and a mix of banquette and booth-style seating separated by ferns and trailing plants. The large covered outdoor terrace beckons in finer weather where you can also enjoy a Shisha in true Middle-East style.

Although the service was lovely and the place was also lovely the food was just dry, specifically the meat. We bought a mixed grill plate and every meat on the plate was very dry as if it was old Md just reheated. Upon speaking to the waitress she spoke to the chef who said that’s how it’s supposed to be because it’s grilled, which is insulting to our intelligence as we know how to cook ourselves and (as we are from Arabic backgrounds) know that is not how meat should be regardless of cooking method. We did he an offer of 30% off in the end but we wouldn’t go back there again unfortunately as the food was a massive let down. Definitely not worth its £25 price for the plate.

We took our grandchildren (5 and 7) and were made most welcome. They provided crayons and colouring menus. We ordered two starters, two mains and a salad. This was ample food for the 4 of us. It was served in an acceptable time and was hot and tasty. The mixed shawarma (sp?) was particularly good! The children enjoyed milkshakes too. We will definitely go back.

Fantastic food and lovely atmosphere. We had not eaten Lebanese food before and the waiter was really helpful explaining the menu and selecting a great range of dishes for us to share. The food arrived promptly and was all very tasty, well presented and enough for the eight of us. I would highly recommend visiting.

I went on a Time Out deal (£20 for three courses and a glass of bubbly). Time Out advertised the true cost as being £72 per head. At that price this very ordinary and rather basic meal would have been a rip off but at the price we paid it was alright. More cafe food than sophisticated Lebanese.

Not as good as before. Went as a party of 6 for a Christmas meal. Atmosphere was not as good as before and the restaurant had a cold draft. Food was average at best. Shame we had booked the restaurant based on our previous visit which was really good. Not sure we'd risk it again.

I think I'd prefer this place for a big group dinner - for just two of us, it didn't really work. I can definitely see the whole shared meze thing working then and we both agreed we'd come back for lunch together but not on a Saturday night unless we were in a big group.

We came to celebrate my 21st birthday and had made a group booking for 10 and were accommodated with a quiet section of the restaurant that was intimate and really well set up. The ambience was really fun with the Lebanese music and the decor in the restaurant is very authentic. The service was friendly and accommodating and the manager, Chady, took very good care of us the whole time we were there. They were able to recommend how much food for us to share between everyone and gave us a wide variety of vegan and vegetarian options The food arrived quickly and was delicious! Would definitely recommend Maison du Mezze to friends and family.

Started off outside and they do have heaters but got a bit too windy so we loved inside and they were more than happy to accommodate. I think some staff are more friendly than others.

Food was great, started off with hot and cold Mezze and the falafel are fantastic! Mains took a while to come so we think we were forgotten about but it did not disappoint. Couple suggestions though, there were for of us and we each had a plate of rice. Dare I say it was too much and they could have brought 2 to share. It always varies with people especially as we had eaten Mezze before but worth having the option to provide a smaller portion and people can always ask for more. The shish taouk portion was perfect and tasted great. Think we could have done with more garlic sauce for the table but not a big problem.

We were given some baklava and tea for the delay and this was appreciated by all. I hope I can return soon.

I have booka a table in advance, arrivef slightly early and was lead to my table only in less than a minute asked to be moved as right next to be was the toilets door and it smelled so bad and the toilet is attached to the kitchen serving bar?!
We wanted to leave immediately but my friend convinced me we should give the food a chance, we ordered the Humus with Shawarma and Labene , pastry filled with mince and got it with 4 smaill pitta bread.
The humus with Shawarma was no more than ok and way overpriced (meze portion for the price of £9),
The Labene tasted like it was taken from a box ( i am certain!) , the pastries were tasteless and again overpriced and the pittas were not home made and tasted like they were heated in the microwave.
Overall, we were so disappointed we decided to have our drinks acroos the square in All Bar One which was the highlight of the evening!!
Don’t fall for the good reviews, I don’t believe they are sincere.

Interior of restaurant was lovely with a nice cosy atmosphere and service was great. However food was underwhelming. Ordered the lamb shwarma and it was incredibly dry and the only sauce they gave was ketchup. For the pricing, food was lacking.

We loved the food so much on our first visit we couldnt wait to go again. I stupidly ordered a wrong dish during the 2nd visit but the Manager, who happened to overhear my conversation with my family when the food arrived, brought us the correct dish immediately and free of charge plus two additional drinks for my children and he left the wrong dish with us too which we ate anyway as it was really good! The staff couldnt have been more friendly, helpful and polite and the food is absolutely wonderful. We cant wait to go back.
