Description: Levant restaurant in London's West End is so much more than a Middle Eastern eaterie. Nestled between bustling Oxford Street and Marylebone High Street, it transports you via a unique experience to more exotic lands. The interior of this ultra-atmospheric restaurant and Mezze Lounge are decked out in bold colours with sensuous fabrics and authentic details, softly lit and saturated with the aroma of gently-burning incense. The authentic Lebanese menus from mezze to grilled fish, meat and fresh salads offer a myriad of spices, textures and flavours. Belly dancers perform every evening to add to Levant's sensory treat, and at weekends a resident DJ samples cool beats until the early hours.

Visited Levant on a Friday night - tried to book from their website through TopTable (I think) which told me they had no space - but I took the extra step to call in, and the really helpful guy on the phone (it's a number which covers both restaurants, Levant and Kenza) booked me a table no problem within a couple of minutes.

Levant is a located off Wigmore Street actually on a little side alley called Jason Court. You descend about 2 flights of stairs (not sure if there are other accessibility options) to the bar area which doubles as a bit of a dance area (for some) and then a couple more steps into the main dining area which is probably about 50 tables.

The menu has a good selection of cocktails and wine offerings (ask them to go easy on the ice!). There were 4 set menu offerings from about £25 per head to about £45, which are primarily different by the main dish, baby grilled chicken, (essentially a mixed shish), salmon, or lamb (there was one more that you had to order 48hr in advance which I didn't pay much attention to).
We ordered from the à la carte menu, Tabbouleh, Halloumi, lamb Sambousek, cheese Sambousek, and Soujoc and a mains of Lamb (which came with salad and rice) and Chicken. Everything was really good - I can't fault anything - and the cost of £129 including a bottle of still water and 4 cocktails wasn't too prohibitive for London prices.
As you can see the set menu is definitely worth a look if you like the same main.

Service was really good, they were very much paying attention to where you were with your meal to bring the next course.

We didn't stay for the belly-dancer as we had another event to go to, but the party definitely felt like it was getting started as we left about 11ish with the DJ playing.

I highly recommend Levant from my experience.

I really enjoyed our romantic evening. Staff was very polite and friendly. We ordered from fixed menu and it was brilliant. So much food cake that we were unable to eat all even when it was delicious.

The atmosphere in this place is great, the decor is beautiful - you almost forget you're in central London! The staff couldn't have been more helpful and polite and the food was delicious. They are excellent for gluten free although they don't advertise it but if you tell them your requirements they make sure everything served to you is suitable!

Food was good, I had the fish deal they start at £29, drinks a little pricy but worth the experience.

Belly dancers were all really good and got customers involved, excellent atmosphere.

Do played something to suit everyone!

We really enjoyed this restaurant! As you walk down stairs to enter this restaurant you feel like you are being transported abroad. The decor and smell of incense is lovely. We were seated promptly and enjoyed one of their banquet meals. Well worth ordering if you would like to try something different but don’t expect to finish it all and pace yourself with the starter! The starter of flat bread, hummus and calamari was delicious. We had salmon, prawns and sea bass, with salad, pomegranate seeds and rice for main and traditional desserts and fruit with mint tea to finish. The food was excellent and, even though the restaurant was extremely busy, the service was still very attentive. I would highly recommend, especially for groups, and would definitely visit again.
