Abd el Wahab

1999 was the year that saw Lebanese cuisine change forever. ABD EL WAHAB Inglizi Street in the heart of Beirut became home to a restaurant of the same name. Reflecting everything great about Lebanon and its culture, this restaurant embodied the genuine heart of the Lebanese people.

Filled with warmth and founded on generosity, this restaurant quickly became highly sought after. From its humble beginnings as a standalone restaurant, it rapidly became the humming and vibrant hub of a chain of restaurants proudly bearing the name ABD EL WAHAB.

Situated in iconic locations around the Middle East, standing in the shadow of the mighty Burj Khalifeh in Dubai, overlooking the Dubai Fountains, in the heart of international hotels such as the St Regis and the Shangrila make this restaurant famous. Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Egypt and Bahrain are all hosts to the expansion of this now legendary brand.

Food is awesome! Really good and authentic. The tables were well separated and waiters wore masks throughout the visit. I would have loved some oriental music. For a while something was playing but it was impossible to hear.

It was my daughter birthday, we were spending a night in london.
The service was atrocious ; they didn’t take drink orders, they didn’t engage , they mixed up orders, they didn’t explain the food or give options.
There was no ambience. The door was always open for the take away orders. The female waitress was dismissive and unhelpful. The food was lovely but cold and slow to arrive.
Appalling.

A high quality place for anyone looking for a Mediterranean meal. Lovely, quiet atmosphere so ideal for conversations. Perfect for couples, families and groups of friends who don’t want to compete with loud music and/or noisy diners.

I don't know why I waited so long to try Abd El Wahab. It was an excellent dining experience. The menu is extensive, the food is authentic and the portions are generous. I will be back for Sunday lunch soon.

We went the first day after lockdown it was very clean and hygienic, with all members of staff wearing corresponding PPE and observing physical distancing measures. The food was amazing and the service was superb. They made us feel very safe and looked-after.
Will definitely be coming back!

Gas wasn't working in the kitchen that night, and the staff did not warn us before we seat and order drinks. 70% of the hot meals were not available! We had a lot of hummus and bread... Not really what we came for.

No commercial gesture (a drink, tea or pastry on the house would have been thoughtful)

The chicken was coked fast، we asked for some sauces and they ignored it, the hommas I make at home is way better than theirs.
The restaurant is a Lebanon and all the songs being played as background were not from Lebanon 😅!
The best thing on our table was the coca-cola 😁

The food is fabulous. Fresh, nicely presented, beautifully spiced and warm fresh bread - my experience of the perfect meal. My friend and I dined on a variety of starters - each of them in their way were (and I rarely say this) perfect. Have already recommended to friends, and will return.

We have had many excellent meals at Abd El Wahab in Beirut so decided to try here when we were looking for somewhere to have a Lebanese meal in London with family. We were pleased we did as we enjoyed our meal and had a very pleasant evening.

Food was excellent wait staff polite... service was equally good in arabic as in English but the Argileh was 50 quid and we were not told as the price was NOT WRITTEN ON THE MENU. I would have assumed 20... or maybe 25... so that is my only complaint
