Noura is located in one of the most upmarket places in London, Belgravia. It is located a 5 minute walk away from London Victoria station so don’t expect any amazing value food here. Thankfully for me my workplace paid for this dinner as part of one of our socials.
There was a pretty standard selection of starters: hummus, falafel, kebbeh, cheese samboussik, aubergine with wrap bread. The starters were as expected, though the falafel was good as it was crispy from the outer and very soft from the inner. Their fresh lemonade was very good, slightly more sweet than bitter, which is just how I like it.
For the main course kafta meshwiyeh and chicken chawarma was ordered, which is essentially kofte kebab and chicken shish. I liked the kafta the texture of the meat was good and it was more like an Adana kebab as the mince had been seasoned. The chicken didn’t have much flavour but it was cooked well.
The decor inside is very good and the restaurant would be good for hosting a big event. However there is nothing particularly striking about Noura compared to for example Maroush.
Food 3.5/5 – good Lebanese food on the whole, Lebanese food is generally bland but it is executed well at Noura
Service 3/5 – service was OK on the whole, however there was nothing particularly standout.
Value 3.5/5 – prices are slightly higher than what you would pay in a Maroush, considering this is in a good restaurant, this is alright value. Approx £20 per head.
Venue – 4/5 – the restaurant is located right next to Victoria station. The presentation within the restaurant is very good.
SAS – 2.5/5 simply just another Lebanese restaurant.
Overall – 16.5/25
