Phoenicia has the distinction of being one of London’s oldest Lebanese restaurants. It certainly has something of an antique charm about it with white linen tables and exemplary service. The emphasis in the menu is definitely on mezze, with a huge numbers of starters available. The houmous and dips are some of the best in London, rich, creamy and delicious. The grilled main courses are the house speciality and Phoenicia is a good bet for a traditional Lebanese feast.
