We were expecting to have a really good experience but were blown away by the everything. Absolutely enjoyed the food and service! Our waiter was attentive, the food was delicious and came on time, the drinks were spectacular and the music was fantastic. The only one recommendation I have is to lower the music volume as we found it hard to communicate without having to yell across the table. Highly recommend this fabulous restaurant!

Service and restaurant were absolutely beautiful and I would come back but the food does not match everything else that is great about this place; cocktails are horrible ( avoid— stick to wine, most people are getting cocktails for Instagram lol). Food is decent but I was not wowed by anything, especially the mains. Also, his place is mostly full of people taking pictures of themselves for Instagram which takes away a bit from a fine dining experience.

Pretty and calm decor. Efficient service. Food is very good and great for sharing. Music was a little loud. Fun spot for a group dinner.

Beautiful restaurant, nice service. Food wasn’t wow. Prosecco was very bland and favour less. The colour cocktail I had was good. Perhaps I didn’t order the right food because I’m vegetarian but I wasn’t wowed.

Food was good but not authentic lebanese. I say that as a Lebanese. Food presentation, interior and ambience was good.
Service was horrible. They were very slow and in the end they forgot my dish. By the time they admitted that the kitchen had closed and they did nothing to correct their mistake.
They seemed like they just don't care

Amal was amazing. Not only was the food delicious and the venue stunning, but the staff and managers were second to none. They were kind, courteous and so accommodating and understanding when we had to shift our reservation last minute. Not once did we feel like they were upset or angry - they truly went above and beyond. The food as I said is good but because of the exceptional service we experienced, I will make a point to return to this restaurant.

We loved the music and belly dancer. It was unexpected so it was a treat. It made our girls night extra special. The food was delicious but we did find a hair in our fries. I was very happy to see vegan options and the potions were We did not say anything as we were almost done our meal. We arrived on time for our reservation but had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated. The food arrived quickly despite it being a Saturday night. Our waiter was very attentive and polite. Overall a great experience and I would go back.

Amal had a beautiful contemporary design.

The staff was exceptional, friendly and knowledgable. They were attentive to empty dishes and glasses on the table and immediately offered to remove them.

The food was authentic and delicious, many great dishes to try.

We will definitely be back to enjoy the atmosphere and the cuisine!!!

The restaurant ambience and interior was absolutely spectacular!

The Hummus and Baba Ganoush were full of flavour and perfectly paired with their freshly baked pitas, but the Muhammara was to die for!

Loved the Secret Garden cocktail — I couldn’t resist having a second.

The Chicken Tawook, Beef Tenderloin and Pistachio kebabs were grilled to a perfect texture and the spices seeped all the way to the centre with each bite bursting with flavour. Surprisingly, the Chicken Tawook was my favourite kebab and I don’t normally like grilled chicken breast.

Would definitely come back!
