About Assaha Restaurant

Assaha is simultaneously twee & enchanting, & very carefully promoted by a Lebanese parent company with a social conscience. The food follows a comfortingly familiar pattern, from a harvest festival of raw vegetables & pickles to start things off, through assorted mezze plates (moutabal, garlic-scented labneh & hoummos) to shawarma & grills, plus fruit & baklava to finish. After a dazzling start, readers reckon some dishes now ‘miss the mark’; service also engenders mixed reviews, from ‘amenable’ to ‘the worst’. Expect juices, coffees & hookahs, but no booze.

Eines meiner Lieblingsrestaurants in London. Das Essen ist hervorragend und soweit ich das beurteilen kann authentisch. Der Service war immer super, das Ambiente ist klasse. Was manche Gäste zur Flucht bewegt ist die Tatsache, dass kein Alkohol serviert wird. Ein schöner Rotwein würde dem Essen sicherlich gut zu Gesicht stehen. Deswegen und nur deswegen 4 statt 5 Sterne.more

Went on a Saturday evening, around 7pm. Place was empty when we arrived, some more people showed up by the time we left.

The first thing that you notice is the decor. It is a well done impression of a middle-eastern house/city/market alley. It's almost tacky, but still fits the intent and looks good. It's a fairly quiet place with some background elevator type music. It would have been...more

Assaha is a good restaurant for its value. Located near Paddington station, it is definitely a place for tourists to pop in for a meal.

Pros: Waiters served food quickly and almost all at once. Generally speaking, all the dishes ordered were well cooked.

Cons: Later in the evening, the restaurant got packed and the wait staff couldn't keep up with the demand. Very disorganized management of...more

The time we spent time there, me and my partner witnessed about 4 people come in and leave out within the first 7minutes because of poor service.A casual dressed waiter has lost his smile waiting for a penny of tips

The music was terrible and the food even worse. The shish tawouk came pinkish and all that i could taste...more

Some friends told me about this restaurant a while ago and they said it one of a kind in London. And they raised the expectation bar really really high. And I was surprised not to find it in yelp :S . But here you go dear yelppers.

I had a go in the restaurant last night and I was really amazed by the place. The decor of the place, is absolutely stunning! You'll forget that you are in London...more
