Noura’s new look does a classy job of upholding the award-winning London chain’s reputation for sleek spaces. The minimalist bistro-style restaurant hides a sumptuous surprise: downstairs lies a lounge bar where a back-lit marble bar is reflected in the regal mirror-wall opposite, and gold recesses glitter in the royal purple walls. Back upstairs, the largely traditional features lots of mouthwatering mezze and grilled meats. Carnivore and omnivore, everyone loves the fattoush salad. An extensive wine list features some corking Lebanese wines, and soft-spoken staffs are a joy to be served by.

I remember coming here before and asking for some zaatar with oil which they kindly gave me. However this time they didn’t ( stopped this apparently) and the Labnah didn’t taste the same..

Had a lovely meal. Ate early (5pm) so not surprisingly a bit quiet. Staff friendly and attentive, food was lovely, decent wine selection too. Lovely stuff.

Very average Lebanese food. The hot Mezze pastries were the worst I’ve had at any Lebanese place (fatayer, arayes etc), very disappointing. The grill was just ok. Overall think there are far better Lebanese places in London

The decor of this place and stark lighting make it feel like you’re in a canteen. The service is fast and efficient, but definitely not warm or friendly. The food is good, but the quality of the meat and other ingredients are of a low standard. I personally would not go back.

Disappointing. Chosen mainly on basis of photo, but this bears no resemblance to the restaurant I visited - feel mis-sold. Food was tasty, plenty of veggie options and staff were attentive. Despite being in Mayfair, the view was mainly of traffic at a busy T-junction.

Arrived expecting opulence but found a canteen with white linen tablecloths. On going to the bathroom I found an exquisite downstairs section with music and the decor I had expected. Too late to move but we will return for the superb food and now know to request a downstairs table.

Wide choice of healthy and delicious Lebanese dishes. Good size portions, quickly served. Some of the tastiest Lebanese food we have had.

Service was OK but a bit perfunctory apart from one happy waiter; a few more friendly smiles would not have gone amiss. Maybe it was a bad day!

Will definitely go again for the food

It's perhaps unfair of me to criticise but there is a lot I don't like about Lebanese food
The portions are surprisingly generous. The potato dish was good . The meaty pizza poor as was the falafel holoumi ok . The rest pretty average. Service ok but not brilliant .
Code it as its opposite Mayfair Curzon cinema. Another time I would eat in Shepherds Market.

We love Lebonese food as it is so healthy and Noura Mayfair did not disappoint - Moutabal (smoked Aubergine paste dip) is my personal favourite. The staff are friendly and helpful. It is quite expensive but it is Mayfair so to be expected I suppose.

Usual Middle Eastern fare. It is not cheap but hardly surprising given the location. It's not possible to order the Mixed Mezze in the evening. Instead they overcharge for small individual starters. The main courses of grilled meat were served cold for all of us. The waiter couldn't quite believe the food was cold but he returned and apologised then offered us complimentary drinks. The freshly served mains were tasty as were the salad and rice. We were also given complimentary baklava which was reasonably tasty and a sweet milk pudding, as well as a fruit platter that contained bitter tasting and partially rancid melon besides stale pineapple, grapes and strawberries.

The food was good; nothing overly exciting but we did not order anything fancy. We were one of about 3 tables that evening and the service was still slower than I would have liked or expected. There are tons of Lebanese restaurants in London so I would most likely would not go back here, but it wasn't bad.

Great food and service. We ordered three off the same set menu for three. It was more than enough. The waiting staff were friendly and helpful. The Lebanese wine was apparently very good once it was allowed to breathe.

This was the second time we've eaten here - both times we had a fantastic meal. The food is so fresh tasting and delicious. We had lots of small portions to share around the table, which is a great way to sample lots of new things. All were delicious. I left the restaurant feeling full, but in a very healthy way as all the food felt like it was good for you, with so much variety and taste. We'll be back!

This is my regular stop-off if I'm feeling hummous withdrawal. Consistent food and decent service. We tend to fill up on mezze and skip the mains as we're often there too late for a full meal. Very good.
