Formerly known as Chintamani, Noura Central has an attractive dining room and serves excellent Lebanese food.
Noura Central reviews
I love this place (and the Belgravia branch) and have been a regular for 3+ years. The service is impeccable, they always remember what I like to order, are friendly, and the food is so healthy, fresh and scrumptious. For the quality of food and service, I think the price is quite reasonable.
I take all of my friends there - vegetarians, coeliacs, meat lovers, friends with children etc - and there is something for everyone. I highly recommend the tabbouleh (diced tomato, parsley, buckwheat, lemon and onion), moutabbal (pureed smoked aubergine), vegetable soup, and the smoothest hoummos known to man.

I'm so impressed by this restaurant. Everything is so elegant. Can't believe we share the same name!

Booked this place for my vegetarian friend on the strength of its Time Out best vegetarian meal award. It slightly misfired for us, from the somewhat tacky exterior and location next to a Pizza Hut, to the rather over-formal style and strange nibbles (half a raw lettuce?).
The mezze were tasty, but NOT cheap, and my friend hated her mousakka main course. However, the Lebanese house white wine was good and the service attentive.
A simpler, smaller format with less formality would suit it better we felt. Though it was a Saturday, the place was pretty empty. Disappointing overall.

I took my friend for her birthday and the food was great. Although the portions are tapas size, there's plenty of delicious food. The service is a bit erratic.

What a fantastic restaurant. Delicious food, lovely freshly baked Manakeesh, the mezze is fresh and delicious and the barbecued lamb skewers were delicious. Best Lebanese food I've have in London. The place oozes class and the service is good. Great music too.
