The service was non descript and almost indifferent however the food made up for this.
The dishes were well prepared and very tasty, good protion sizes and all arrived in good time.
the menu choice is good and theres some good veggie options too if youre not a meat eater.
The restaurant itself is very small and not comfortable enough to stay all night but it serves its purpose.
The price is very reasonable and theres a great local wine thats very drinkable indeed.
Also there s a lovely mix of people that drop by and keep a good atmosphere. We would return here if in the area.
The restaurant has two little dining halls; one at street level and the other is in the basement, and I assume that the one below is only for private hire as they were turning diners away when the top room was full. The restaurant has an unusual seating plan in which you have ottoman like seats surrounding large handmade brass trays placed over small wooden tables.
The food in general is very good, Jawaneh (chicken wings) are always reheated and overcooked but they still retain some of the nice taste that they would have. Grills are extraordinary but usually in the medium side, so if you don't like redness in your meat tell them. The highlight of the menu (although it can be a bit greasy) is Arayes which is normally served as a pressed Lebanese bread filled with mince meat, with these guys the minced meat is given and extra kick with spices layed on top of puff pastry like crunchy bread.
Expect to pay around 6.5£ for starters and 10£ for main courses, currently the restaurant is in the half price offered by tastecard
Fantastic little gem in the heart of Soho. Service is not why you come here. It’s all about the Mezze. We tried a selection of about 5, including Kibbeh, Moutabal, Vine Leaves, Sujuk sausage and Felafel, all outstanding, particularly the Kibbeh and Moutabal which was the best we’ve had since visiting Syria a couple of years ago. The Lebanese wine was also very good and the staff were happy to provide recommendations from their wide range. While not exactly dirt cheap its still very reasonable and a great place to take friends to graze on Mezze over an evening.

Happened upon this place the other night. The food was OK – just – but the service? Non-existent. We were given the wrong starter and when my girlfriend pointed this out, the astonishingly rude waitress argued with her that it wasn’t wrong. My GF had to ask to see the menu again to point out what she ordered. The plate was removed with a harumph and a shrug and replaced with the correct dish without a word of apology. Nor any word at all. Upon paying the bill I subtracted the laughable 12.5% service charge, left cash on the table and we took our leave. The waitress came running after us on Greek Street, waving the bill and the cash, shouting at us like we were criminals. I explained that I did not pay the service charge, at which I was given a loud ‘Shame on you, sir!’ Ah well, at least she called me ‘Sir’ that time.
Last Friday, I celebrated my 24th birthday at Kaslik to highly recommend this restaurant for anyone who wishes to engulf themselves into the mystique of Lebanon and its culture. The manager at Kaslik has the most congenial nature while maintaining the upmost professionalism. To discover the restaurant, Kaslik is comparable to finding an oasis in the desert with the location in Soho ideal for any persons seeking to enjoy authentic Lebanese food amid the expensive and competitive business of North African cuisines in central London. My private birthday party was held below the main dining area in the basement which is decorated in the design of an Arabian tent palace replete with cushions and stools for added comfort and effect.
The belly dancer requested for my party surely transfixed all guests with her performance to ask me – ‘the birthday girl’ to join her where I attempted to showcase my own original moves until I gave her the center stage again. Neither I nor my any of my party guests had any complaints with the reasonable prices (22 GBP set menu price), clean venue including restrooms and pleasant staff exceeding all of our desired needs. One of my friends commented, “This has been the best birthday party I have attended all year” – I know this compliment was greatly enhanced by the services rendered at Kaslik. Overall, the atmosphere of Kaslik provides all visitors or frequent customers a memorable experience whether it is lunch before heading back to work or hosting your 24th birthday party.
Definitely somewhere a bit different! We went there for an office party at Christmas and sat downstairs on very low seats around the floor. It was a bit of a squash but that can add to the fun! All the food came on huge trays which were passed around. It’s not easy to balance a plate, cutlery and a glass all together on your lap but, if you’re lucky, there might be a low table nearby (I wasn’t so lucky!) The food was delicious, all vegan in this instance as we were all vegans or vegetarians that night. I saw a beautiful and extremely glamorous young woman in the ladies room and we said hello - I wondered where she was going. I was amazed shortly afterwards, when some loud music started, to find that she was our belly dancer! She was fantastic and kept our party spell bound with all her contortions and gyrations. The waiter service was quite good but, as I’ve said, it was difficult to find places to put your plate and it got uncomfortable sitting so low down after a while. There were chairs in the restaurant upstairs as I remember for smaller numbers of diners.
Superb little Lebanese restaurant in Soho. I’ve been here lots and always had a great meal. Good mezze plates for vegetarians, lovely mint tea, good champagne :) Upstairs it’s quite close quarters with the tables very close together and big tin table top things that look as though they’re about to topple over! But downstairs there’s a bigger room where you sit crossed legged on the floor. They always seem to squeeze you in though, no matter how busy they are. Lots of incense burning and hookah pipes. And the best thing is the belly dancing that happens quite often - I think just on a Thursday and Friday night - worth checking out!
