    " Found this place on Tastecard and thought what a lovely little place to take my friend for her birthday! However, the food is appalling! Food was bland, cold and honestly vile. Food quality did not match the cost price even with the Tastecard. However, the venue was lovely and staff were pleasant and attentive (we were the only people dining however.)
    Absolutely gutted this had so much potential.. but I won't be coming here again. "

    The food was okay, but I wouldn't say it is representative of good Lebanese restaurants. I've had a lot better. Seems to be more for shisha rather than customers who are not interested. Customer service was very poor(no coffee or dessert offered), bit of a hangout type place, and not many people eating just lolling in chairs wrapped up in blankets in the outside seating area. Not a good look. Definitely not one for me. "

    Went around 8pm last Friday after a recommendation for shisha from a friend. Place was half full, waiters and service folks looked disengaged. Had to wait 15-20 mins before anyone bothered to take up our order or ask what we wanted (that too when we signalled).
    Shisha was quality, chicken shawarmas decent and mint tea good. Didn't get any discount on the tastecard on food (they said it's due to Friday but I checked with them on phone before going and they said they would accept it and I just needed to pop in).
    Belly dancer came around 9 and was top notch entertainment, shame we had to leave soon after she started.
    All in all, a good place to relax but very poor customer service and heating. Can easily find much better Lebanese cafés in London with better service, food, ambience and entertainment. Not worth it especially if you are making a trip from outside South London! "

    Went out to layali lounge last night, was warmly met by polite staff who made us feel at home. First shisha lounge we have been too that serve cocktails and alcohol, bartender even made us a special martini which wasn't on the menu, fresh watermelon - WOW. Would recommend this place, definitely will be going back! "

    " Tastefully decorated, lovely atmosphere, even little candles everywhere to give it a nice cosy feel. Very reasonably priced healthy hearty grill meat and mezze options depending on how you like to dine, mix platter format great with a little bit of everything. The food was great my cheese pastry just melted in the mouth was to die for, and grill Halloumi cheese - amazing. A real gem in that is the front terrace. Simple, non rushed and warm service. Amazing fun Saturday night. Staff was so professional and friendly at all times even when the restaurant was really heaving at dinner time. The belly dancer is such a great entertainer her warm interaction with the customers is nice and she puts on a great show. Great concept with having the front terrace for sheesha or for a drink after your dinner indoors, thank you all xxx "

    We all go there on a regular basis. Fantastic ambiance, classy shisha place and might i add so far the best shishas i had! Food great, minus the battata harra.

    Staff speak for their self. Excellent! Even worth it without tastecard because were there weekends too at times. But having the tastecard is an added bonus! "

    Went to this restaurant after seeing it on my app, and when I got there I was very impressed with the food and place and service. What I liked most apart from the food being very reasonable and delicious is that this restaurant specialises and serves only Lebanese food, which is hard to find, as many places combine all Middle Eastern cuisines under one roof. But here it’s only Lebanese, and authentic and good Lebanese food, which is what made me take the effort to write this review. So all in all and good place to dine and have a few drinks. "

    " We live in Clapham and have passed by this restaurant a few times and me and my partner were always curious to see what this place actually does, as it looks very warm and inviting when one drives past. And on a Thursday evening when we were contemplating where to dine using our tastecard, Layli lounge came up, so we said why not give it a try.

    The food is quite tasty and I was very impressed with the service. The staff are very attentive, which is always a good thing. They do really good deals on cocktails as well..

    Overall a good place to dine and spend a nice evening. "
