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.

Amazing Lebanese cousine. I would recommend it for sure.
It was my first time visiting this restaurant. Food was amazing, everything was delicious.
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.
Food was midiocre half of my dessert was missing, the didn’t add the ice cream to it And to top it off the service was super slow
Really top class. Recommended
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.
Delicious food and excellent service. I will be back!
Delicious food; very good range of vegetarian food.
As good as their restaurant in Beirut. Definitely worth making the trip
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.
Nice drinks, great service but food was very tangy.
We had a wonderful meal. The service was fantastic and all the necessary COVID precautions had been taken. The food was also of a very high standard.
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)
Great service and tasty food
First class, extremely friendly staff, amazing food
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.
Last minute decision to go for a Lebanese meal, which was well rewarded. Outstanding food in a very modern atmosphere
Authentic Lebanese food! Try their smoked grilled meat dishes - spectacular! And Chateau Musar Lebanese red wine is as good as any.
Every time I go to this restaurant I come out satisfied. You paid the quality of the great cousine they have.
Way too expensive for the value of the food compared to other similar restaurants in the area
Plenty of exeptional food. Perfect for talk, eat, talk, eat, talk, eat, talk, .........
Excellent location good food very good service shall diffinitly go back again
The food was delicious and authentic and our waiters were very helpful. it was perfect for a Sunday lunch.
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.
Great food, very satisfied
We had a fantastic dinner. Food was great, but service was absolutely fantastic. The manager was probably the nicest and most efficient we have ever met.
Food was not as good as other Lebanese restaurants and it's VERY expensive.
Ambience and service were great.
Very pleased with our first visit at this restaurant.
There is a lot on the menu and plenty of vegetarian options.
Certainly will visit again to sample more dishes.
Great service, asked the waiter for recommendations and he sorted our whole starter for us all. Amazing food which is well worth the money, overall a very nice evening!
Great food but miss Kibbe Niyye!
Service was very good due largely to presence of Nabil. He is a real asset to the restaurant.
A friend from Beirut recommended Abd el Wahab as THE place to go to in London for reliably excellent Lebanese food. We had a great lunch there this weekend. Everything was excellent!
Great restaurant, very good food and always great staff here. A must do in London
We really enjoyed our evening. Ingredient were fresh and food presented in an aesthetic manner. Service was outstanding.
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
Truly the best Mediterranean food we’ve ever had.
We celebrated my partners 30th as a lovely treat for his birthday, the food was amazing and the venue was lovely. All members of staff were very attentive and helpful.
We had an amazing experience and would recommend to anyone.
The best Lebanese food in London!! 👏🏼👏🏼
