your comments review this restaurant and win a bottle of champagne
I am an ex lebanese restaurant owner for 36 years and, without being presumptuous , i could safely say that my opinion on lebanese food is valid and exemplary .
Since i retired from the business in 2004, i visited many lebanese eating places,from the plush and very expensive to the downright unassuming and astonishingly good value for money and superb quality of food .
My impression was , while some of them were passable and some others give the lebanese food a disastrously bad reputation not to mention the low degree of hygiene and safety prevailing there that the authority has a distinct duty to close them down on the spot .
Without dragging on with the narrative , i can say that Chez Marcelle in Blythe road is the one which stood out the best for the highest quality of food and the lowest prices of the fares and by far the largest good quality portions and a complimentary sweet to boot at the finish. You have though to be prepared for a long wait and amateur but very polite service .
If you want another lebanese eaterie but mainly for take away or indeed for outside caterings on grand scale then head for NEW CRACKERS the lebanese delicatessen on 262 Kensington high street W8, the prices, the quality and freshness of food and the high standard of hygiene, i don't think they will beaten anywhere in London .
I shall not be listing any foods or dishes , but suffice to say that my details are enclosed and you could contact me to air your grievances or indeed confirm my own impressions.
