Alawia was recommended to me by a friend. I love lebanese food so am always willing to try out new places.
The service was so bad. Nobody could speak english. So they couldn't understand what it was I wanted. I had to point out pictures to explain what I wanted. The food was not the best. The meat was under cooked and the tabola salad looked and tasted like it was made the week before.
I then asked to speak to the manager and he ended up not being able to speak english himself.
The whole experience was a disaster. I was shocked that a place could be run in such a way.
I didn't really make a fuss. I just paid and said a few words like. I don't think i'll ever be coming back here again and I left. Oh and I left a £1 tip just for the sake of it.
The location is not the best either but I am sure there is room for improvment.
