It’s a great local Lebanese restaurant saving you the trouble of having to travel into central London to find another one. We did have an issue with our table when we arrived and they tried to sit the 4 of us in the middle of a pack restaurant but they soon realised it wouldn’t work so they moved us to a table at the back. Service was good and was as to be expected, but most importantly the food was great.

This is our favourite local restaurant - every time we go we have a wonderful meal that is super tasty and that makes you look forward to your next visit! Our personal favourites on the menu are Sambusek, Soujuk and the Houmous Beiruti and the mint lemonade is delicious! The staff are super kind and gentle and always make you welcome.

Amazing evening and lovely food, have visited Warda numerous times and every time the food and service is outstanding. Great value for money and the quantity is just right, the meze is amazing (can overfill on them alone) would recommend for any occasion

There are not many Lebanese restaurants in North London so this is a nice little place. Nice selection and the mixed grill is good.

What a shame. A nice local Lebanese would have been a regular trip. Instead we entered a near empty place with the feel of a cafe, encountered an unfriendly unLebanese waitress who clearly didn't want to be there, and ate average food at average value.

Despite being almost the only people in the place the service was slow and reluctant and we were clearly imposing by being there.

This was our third or fourth visit, hadn't been for a while. Booked for 7.30 and arrived to find virtually empty restaurant so a booking wasn't needed really (and it was a Saturday night). Short on staff so service was quite slow and there simply wasn't the welcome we had previously experienced. I had remembered light background music on previous occasions but it took until we were almost finished before any music was played. The first hour or so was just so quiet and without any ambience or warmth somehow. I'm sure it was probably an 'off night' but won't be rushing back when there are so many good Middle Eastern restaurants in the area

Wards staff were attentive to our needs and friendly.
The food was on point- i prefer vegetarian meals and they have a good variety to suit these needs. I loved the bamyeh and the starter the baba ganoush. Yum!
They provided some tasty baclava afterwards as complimentary.
Not sure why not more people come here, it's a hidden gem..
Highly recommended!

Excellent food and ambiance. Probably the best Lebanese I've had and I've been to a lot - better than anything I've had on the Edgware Road. Really fresh ingredients and amazing breads and pastries thanks to their wood burning stove. Would travel to eat there again.

Not the first time I've eaten at Warda and I've always found the food to be lovely.

The server on this occasion was not quite as effective as they could have been but not something that would stop me going again, or recommending it to others.

Delightful Lebanese restaurant, our fourth visit. A warm welcome, well-cooked food with excellent ingredients. For example, the grilled halloumi which is popular in many Middle Eastern restaurants is the best we've ever tasted, soft and NOT rubbery!! Music is at a level which enables diners to talk to one another, we'll be going again!

Our first visit and definitely will be returning. Good choice of Lebanese dishes, all well presented and beautifully cooked. Great service, good ambience (music not too loud). Would have liked more vegetarian main dish options but hey, Lebanese food is more meat than vegi I guess!! Very reasonably priced and inclusive of service which we were happy to pay.

Recently celebrated my birthday there and booked for 30 guests.
Overall amazing evening and would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Great choice of food and drinks and a beautiful atmosphere.
Though due to the amount of guests the service was a bit slow, the amazing staff made it hard to complain.
I would recommend getting the set menu (that can be customized) to ensure all food comes out on time.
Thank you for a beautiful evening :)

Went here for my brothers birthday and the food was great, alcohol a bit pricy considering I'm in south gate. The wings we had were amazing and honestly would go back for them. The only downside to the restaurant is when you normally go to a Mediterranean restaurant you are served bowls of salad and bread complimentary and even for our main the bread was not enough to eat the meat with; but on the upside the skewers of meat were very filling and tasty. Value for money is great and would recommend as the decor is nice and service is great and so friendly.
