Review on Ishbilia
With more than one hundred dishes to choose from at Ishbilia Restaurant you are going to be spoilt for choice that's for sure. This is a relaxing, romantic and vibrant place to enjoy middle eastern cuisine in a chic Lebanese restaurant where the London middle eastern community feel at home.
The Mobile Food Guide team love Ishbilia and usually opt for the set menu where an endless supply of different dishes keep arriving at the table. It seems never ending and every dish is delicious. Hummous Sada, tabouleh, Boiled Chick Peas served with Garlic and Cumin, followed by Kafta Bil Sainiyeh Maa Potata, Baked Spiced Minced Lamb with Parsley, Onions and Potatoes, fresh fruit and exceptionally good Lebanese wine including Chateau Musar for the very special occasions.
Upstairs is chic at Ishbilia but downstairs is where the fun is. Alcoves lead off the main room for intimate private parties while on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays in winter and every day during the summer, there is live Arabic music to enhance the Arabian night. If you are very lucky you'll arrive on a night when the resident dancer is performing. Without doubt she is the most beautiful belly dancer in London.
