This Jericho veteran inspires remarkable loyalty from fans – “been coming since it opened 30 years ago and it’s still the best Lebanese I’ve found in the UK”“and great value too”. Others find it “pleasant enough”, with a “wide range of nicely flavoured dishes”, but complain there’s “no excitement”.

A Jericho institution for more than 30 years – “the food remains excellent” at this “charming” Lebanese. To newcomers it’s still “a real find”“so many small dishes to choose from that I never got to the mains, although my friends were impressed with those”. “Pleasing and original choice of vegetarian offerings”, too.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
