Interesting and tasty menu - the herb soup was delicious, as was the lamb shank. Interesting wine list with a good selection. The restaurant deserves to be much busier.

Server was welcoming and attentive. We had A la carte menu - food came promptly and was very tasty. My wife's stuffed courgettes were particularly good. Would definitely recommend this place. Menu could be worded better as the descriptions perhaps dont do the food justice.

Dined here on our last night of a 25 day European vacation. Though Egyption in name, that is only an influence. It is as much Mediterranean as Egyption. But the dinner was delightful, well spiced, and the lamb shank was the most tender of any I have had in 50 years of dining out. Marvelous service, nicely appointed modern decor and seating. Nearly a 5 star rating, but we are very stingy with those (only 3 or 4 in all our years). So by all means this heart of Kensington restaurant is a worthy choice and a fond memory.

Distinctive cuisine you rarely get to experience. Try the traditional Egyptian herb soup, the lamb shank, and the baked filo/dairy/almond dessert. Everything was tasty and we'll seasoned.

We had the tasting menu, accompanied by the wine selection. The quality of the food was excellent. Portion size as expected from fine dining. Decor and setting is very good, though we had the whole restaurant to ourselves. Mid week Egyptian maybe doesn't draw the crowd, but it should. The lamb was exquisite. Not a cheap meal, but great food and something slightly different.

The food was good with the exception of an incident that spoilt the afternoon for me. I am aware that a service charge is never mandatory and as per the website and the menu this stated very clearly that a discretionary 12.5% surcharge would be applied. I do not want to pay this, nor should this be forced upon me. This is not enshrined in law and current discussions with parliament are in place to stop restaurants from insisting and simply adding on an extra charge on top of the meal. All food industry are obligated to pay their workers either a living wage or a minimum wage. I was disappointed when I requested for the charge to be taken off my bill. The excuse being made was that this was on the till and could not be removed. For Alexandrie Restaurant to act with mendacity, attempt to force me to pay a charge that is not legal upset me greatly and based on this issue I will never go back and eat there. I did not go to enjoy lunch to engage in an altercation and embarrass myself and quests. This issue could have been settled promptly. It is an absolute disgrace to assume that customers have no rights. In America it is customary to tip your service provider and employees are reliant on this to boost their wages. In the UK this is not legally binding and not required. Employers must pay their employees either a living wage or minimum wages. Currently the government is consultation with the hospitality industry regarding service charge, tips etc. Common practice is that this is optional and the money belongs to the business who can use this as they see fit. This is an additional charge to food that you are paying for. Not acceptable at all as a cash tip given to the server can be kept by the server whilst the service charge means you have pad for the meal and giving the business a mandatory unlawful charges that customers neither understand nor question. I will be writing to my MP to complain and further ensure that this tradition is stopped. Utter shock and upset.

I booked this halal restaurant for my boyfriend’s 40s birthday. As main he ordered the lamb shank but when arrived we realised it was hard. That spoiled a bit the atmosphere. My main was fine but I really wanted to be a good experience for him! We told the waiter who promptly changed the dish with a much softer one.
The food is very tasty, from starters to desserts, overall its really worth a try maybe not in special occasions though, when you want a smooth enjoyable dinner.

First time here and it won’t be the last! We were in at 6pm and got the 20% discount on food which was automatically deducted. The room filled up later but tables are nicely spaced and it was never noisy. The food was Mediterranean in style and the hummus as amuse bouche was excellent and served with lovely flat bread. Quail breasts and delicious lamb shanks followed. There is a decent wine list with a good selection by the glass. A very nice restaurant all in all.

Congratulations to the team of professionals who make Alexandrie Restaurant a go-to destination. Our meal there was excellent, the service attentive and caring and the ambiance was chic but without the pretense seen at so many restaurants today. Cannot wait to go back!

Alexandrie is a beautiful restaurant. We went because we have travelled around Egypt and wanted to experience a little of the Egyptian warmth and friendliness in London and Alexandrie did not disappoint. The food was exceptional for both my husband who eats everything and for me as a vegan. I was delighted to find vegan baklava on the dessert menu. Amazing! I never get to eat a decent dessert. We really enjoyed Alexandrie and would highly recommend it.

Alexandrie was a real treat from beginning to end. Very cozy restaurant in the heart of Kensington. My wife and I were only in London for a couple of nights and we wanted to try something different so we decided to try an Egyptian restaurant. The complimentary appetizer was delicious, as was every dish we had. I had the lightly fried prawns to start and the spicy chicken entrée. We shared a delicious traditional Egyptian dessert consisting of baked filo and custard. Highly recommended.

Tasting Menu with creative dishes of superior quality. Intersting accompanying wines, mainly of French origin. Unfortunately, the Restaurant was pretty empty (just one table occupied besides ours), thus lacking atmosphere.

We were the only people in the restaurant and the waiter gave the impression he was eavesdropping on our conservation (not sure if he actually was but he gave this impression). It was awkward. Also the `Trio of seafood' I ate was just fried seafood bits, i.e., no vegetables or rice. It was very odd and I recommend they take this item of the menu.

What a find. I took my wife here for her birthday and had the nicest meal I have had in a long time. The interior has been recently refurbished so looks lovely, each course was absolutely delicious and the prices were very reasonable - especially for the quality. We will be coming again - highly recommended!
