    Ordered the menu for two and got a good selection of starters, large main and a dessert. The value was very good and the food was good too.

    We found Hiba to be an average dining venue. The service was slow. There are decent vegetarian options.

    A lovely meal - stunning food, atmospheric simple restaurant. Huge portions, doggy bags happily provided. Not licensed so pick up your booze at nearby supermarket or enjoy one of their genuinely fresh fruit juices which you can see being made.

    The food at the restaurant is well portioned and tastes great. Unfortunately the service lets the place down. The restaurant has an open kitchen and a couple of the staff were having an argument right next to the diners did not show the restaurant in a good light.

    Our friend and us are meeting from time to time for a good dinning experience. Hiba was chosen to try out Lebanese meal and proved to be an excellent chose. As we were unsure what to order but wanted to taste as many different plates as possible we have tried the selection, including six appetizers and a mixed grill plate. The appetizers were really good and offered a nice coverage both for vegetarians and meat lovers. They were mainly excellent, although the bowl of parsley was more surprising the extraordinary. My favorite was humus. The mixed plate included lamb, chicken, pork and probably :) some beef. The chicken and the pork was good but nothing unique. On the other hand the lamb and the beef was fantastic. The portions are great, we needed doggy-bag at the end, and the prices are moderate, so good value. Overall it was a nice experience and we agreed that we will go back.

    The restaurant is a no-frills, good value for money lunch venue. A dish of the day is on display at a reasonable price - fairly basic but tasty. Corkage was reasonable meaning that lunch with wine is very affordable. Good buzzy atmosphere with many nationalities and a young clientel. Loudish music contributed to the atmosphere. A busy takeaway business did not detract from the service. The downstairs restaurant is quieter but not much used when we were there. Waiting staff friendly and informative.
