Comptoir Libanais Review

Comptoir Libanais

Address: 52 Poland Street, W1F 7NQ

Tw: @ComptoirLibanai

Cuisine: Lebanese

FOOD:

On a Wednesday evening, not too long ago, we visited the Comptoir Libanais on Poland Street, for Lebanese food, if you hadn’t already guessed from the name.

Our meal started with some tasty minced lamb wheat parcel with pine nuts and onion served with mint yoghurt and chargrilled marinated chicken wings served with harissa and garlic sauce. Out of the two, I didn’t find the chicken wings anything special so I’d recommend the lamb wheat parcels, as they were the perfect starters to wet the tastebuds.

As we proceeded to our mains, we decided to go for two options – roasted half chicken marinated in pomegranate molasses and cinnamon alongside the Comptoir salad and vermicelli rice and a mixed grill consisting of Lamb kofta, chicken kofta, chicken shish taouk served with vermicelli rice.
All round pretty delectable, but rather average.

Lastly, being the foodies that we are, we decided to give their rose and pistachio cake with raspberry and rosewater icing a go. Rosewater isn’t a taste for everyone’s palette I’d say, as it’s a bit soapy and almost like you’re eating perfume. The cake itself was very delightful to look at, presented with a cute little dried rose, but my feelings of the cake itself were mixed. Part of me was like, “hmm interesting taste” and the other part, “not sure I like the rosewater undertones”. Needless to say in all my indecisiveness, I would put this forward as an option to finish your meal, as it does satisfy those with a sweet tooth.

I can’t conclude without a mention of their mint tea, as it was a winner! Mint tea has a number of benefits and in this case to help us digest all the food we had ingested. I believe our waiter said they use a mix of rosewater and green tea, to give off the flavour we experienced.

OVERALL:

Comptoir Libanais is a pleasant dining experience in a vibrant yet cosy envoironment. The service was great and not lacking.

The food is not too spicy, so definitely caters to all.

It’s hard to miss Comptoir, when walking along Poland Street, because it has a very open storefront with customers sitting outside and even more customers sitting inside.

All-in-all, a very buzzy restaurant with attractive features for all ages.

Overall Rating ★★★1/2
