Aline was created from a desire to share my family’s food traditions. My love for Lebanese food comes from my mother, Aline. A Passionate home cook, famous for gathering her friends and family around her long table placed in the heart of a bucolic garden we call “Le Jardin d’Aline”. Meals have always been a way for her to teach my sisters and I about our Lebanese heritage. In summer we often enjoyed “Siyadiyeh”, a freshly caught sea bass served with a fisherman’s risotto native to Tyre, my mother’s hometown and in winter we would all gather in the kitchen eagerly waiting for the slow cooked lamb for her famous “Fatteh”. Our dishes are a modern take on everyday Lebanese comfort food served in a cozy thirty seat restaurant in Mayfair . Our ingredients are responsibly sourced and prepared with care, with a menu that offers the best of Lebanese food in all its authenticity. We look forward to seeing you soon! Tarek Farah

We spent a lovely night there!! Owner of the place was amazing. He gave us great advices on food since we are not familiar with some of them. He was also very enthusiastic to explain ingredients and the historic stories behind the dishes. Amazing food for great prices and everyone should try Lebanese wine !!

The food was good but not outstanding. However it was the 175mm glass of wine at £9 a glass which caused my "value" review. My friend and I decided we were going to try Lebanese wine for the first time and it was pleasant but certainly not worth £9 a glass! There were no other choices for a glass of wine neither white nor red.

I booked a table via OpenTable for 8.45pm and I received a phonecall right after from the restaurant saying we had to leave the restaurant by 10pm according to the new curfew rules.
When we arrived at the restaurant for the time we booked out table was not ready and the waiter didn't know anything about our booking.
We waited 15 minutes and we ended up sitting at the table at 9pm, with only an hour left to order and eat
We felt rushed and on the final bill we were charged 13 pound for service charge, which we refused to pay.
Despite this the food was very good and tasty.

Fantastic meal and service. Everything we ordered was perfectly cooked, super fresh and served impeccably. Sadly it was very quiet when we went hence why I marked down for ambience. Can not fault anything else though and will definitely return.

This is a small restaurant with just a few tables and only one waiter so the service was average. The food was fantastic; it tasted great and was well presented. It was slightly on the expensive side though for the quantity you receive - £7-8 per small dish.

The food is absolutely outstanding. Unusually we picked the cauliflower amongst our dishes and it was so delicious!! Crispy, tasty and with an amazing sauce too.

We shared a few dishes between us.

Aline is an absolutely wonderful find.

The staff are lovely giving us the perfect amount of attention throughout.

Thank you!

Dopo aver ricevuto ripetute email di conferma mi sono puntualmente presentato al ristorante alle 20:10. Il ristorante era CHIUSO. Essendo la sera di fine anno vi lascio immaginare la difficoltà di trovare posto in un ristorante in centro a Londra Ale 20:30😡 Sono alla fine riuscito a cenare con mia moglie spendendo una cifra assurda. Locale poco serio e servizio Opentable non affidabile😡😡😡

Food is fresh but not much seasoning. Was unimpressed with the grilled meats and a lot of the cold mezze were very sour.

Great food and service, but the tables are so small and tightly packed together, it’s difficult to fit even the smallest amount of plates on there. And getting to your seat between tables without knocking something is almost impossible. Shame as the food and service was great but the seating really affected the experience.

Service very friendly, food fresh, tasty and authentic. Waitress was very accommodating. Quite a small restaurant so almost a cafe feel, but quite intimate while remaining casual and relaxed.

The Fatush & Baba Ganoush are both excellent! Don't bother with the king prawns as they didn't taste fresh.

Having lived in the middle east I am always dubious about restaurants that claim to be authentic. However the food was amazing. Large portions, good value and excellent service. Definitely a go again kind of place.

There is no pretence here, or grandeur, despite the five star location - this place is just what it says it is ‘a Lebanese Kitchen’, but it’s wonderful, and the food is absolutely outstanding. Lots of little plates of deliciousness - I especially loved the Shish Taok (marinated chicken pieces) with garlicky yoghurt sauce and taboulleh. The staff are lovely, not intrusive, just friendly and helpful. Really excellent little place.

This is a small place tucked away near the bustling Oxford Circus area. Overall a great experience the manager and the waitresses were all very nice and fast with service. Food was excellent all the dishes we had were fresh and had great flavour. We didn’t realise until paying the bill that they had accidentally given us the wrong dishes on top of what we ordered but they didn’t make a fuss and didn’t charge us extra for it so was much appreciated. We would highly recommend this place for overall great local Lebanese food.

Lovely Lebanese restaurant tucked away in a quiet Mayfair street. Staff were very nice and food just out of this world! Definitely recommend this place if you are getting tired of chain restos like Maroush.

It was a nice place, not something extraordinary though. We ordered spicy hummus and batata harrah. The hummus was really nice and we loved it. However, batata harrah was just fried potatoes with little garnish and was not good at all. I would avoid it. The chicken kebabs were nice too.
