We have been going to L'Oriental for many years. It is a spectacularly beautiful restaurant and very spacious. Lovely to visit in all weathers. The food is always well prepared and very fresh and the staff are friendly and welcoming. At weekends there is a beautiful belly dancer. Highly recommended for lovers of Lebanese cuisine.

The presentation of this restuarant is excellent. It is much larger, in every way, than it looks from the outside. All the furnishings and facilities are excellent. The service is also very good, very helpful, attentive and polite. My wife was quite distraught and upset when we went because of the terrorist attack in London but the staff and management... More

Amazing interior, keeping the Arabic spirit alive. Fridays and Saturdays there is a belly dance show. The food is amazing as always and good decent portions. Excellent service.

A lovely looking restauant, relaxed lighting meets opulent interior. But not in an offputting way. That word doesn't look right but you get my drift. The staff were just lovely. A little quiet midweek but it soon livened up. We started with a fatoush salad and hoummos - tayyeb! I believe thats the other way of saying delicious in lebanese.... More

Food was great and authentic. Starters were large and we should have shared one instead of ordering one each. The main meal was lovely, chicken and lamb kebabs but there was no room for dessert. We ordered coffee and brandy to finish the meal and it was the largest brandy I've ever been served- and one of the best! The... More

An elegant restaurant based on those you find in Lebanon - large, airy, clean with ample sized tables. They even offer a very good Belly Dancer. The food is, as a previous reviewer states, adapted to the country in which you are dining, but, as far as Lebanese dishes go, these were very acceptable. We had a delicious meze meal,... More
