The two most popular features of this modern, single floor restaurant (besides its fabulous food and service, of course) are its fish pond and skylight roof, which add a touch of the outdoors, indoors to this fabulous eatery.
The relaxed, modern atmosphere which seats about 90 guest's makes Maroush Gardens a wonderful location for a quiet lunch or a romantic dinner for two - you can almost feel the warm winds of Beirut on your face if you close your eyes and let the smells & sounds take you away

Good consistent solid food quality and taste with friendly staff. Lacks ambience however. Needs something to liven it up. Would recommend to anyone looking for hearty Arabic food. Note - tenderest chicken sheesh I ever had. 👍🏻👍🏻

Food was great. However, despite booking we still had to wait and the staff were more apologetic to walk-ins who also had to wait. Service was fine but not stellar and while the food was good it was expensive compared to other places in Edgware Road. We were hoping for a better experience compared to those other restaurants but instead got a very similar one but more expensive. Perhaps they need to think about how better to justify their prices.

We ate here based on the proximity to the apartment at which we were staying as well as the stellar yelp reviews and it did not disappoint! The food was the best Lebanese we've ever had and the portions huge. Very family friendly - definite must go when in London

Food is delicious (but hidden costs on items we understood were on the house). Service from our lovely waitress and waiter was good. The manager, however, behaved woefully. Chewing gum and shouting at patrons is not advisable. Will not be returning.

The service was slow the quality of the food was far below par with other Maroush restaurants. Won’t be going back in a while. Food expensive for the quality.

The food was great as this type of cuisine usually tends to be, I highly recommend the grilled prawns. I think our biggest gripe was the service, it just wasn’t as tentative as it could have been. We were almost irritated at some moments. This was a passing through moment as we were close by but will most likely not revisit.

Food was tasty as always, not amazing but very good.

Service is friendly for the most part but you don’t feel overly special.

Seems to have lost a bit of its edge in comparison to previous visits over many years. May try somewhere else next time.

Appalling service - had to ask for wine and water several times. Then ordered some more food explaining we were in a hurry and they forgot to order it, so we had to go without. We declined to pay the service, but they didn't even ask why.

Shame as I remember the food here always being good - but with four venues maybe they have over expanded.

As a family, we love Lebanese food, and it is always very good at any Maroush. We feel, however, that the service has slipped gradually since the first Maroush opened in the Edgware Road. The company could do with sharpening up their staff training.

My husband and I went to this restaurant years ago and we found the service a little brash back then but the food was nice. Now that we have young children and we were meeting some friends for dinner I thought we would try it again.
However we will not be visiting again as the service was even worse and incredibly slow. The starters were mediocre and the main course was awful and it was really overpriced so very disappointed in the whole experience.

The food is exceptional, and authentic. The staff are very attentive, yet you hardly notice they are there. Very relaxed atmosphere; music not too loud. More importantly, I was pleasantly surprised when was presented with the bill. Would definitely recommend it.

I booked Maroush on 23/12/17 for an early dinner for 8 on 24/12/17. It was supposed to be a birthday dinner for my granddaughters after a day spent at the Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. However when we arrived at the restaurant, they had no knowledge of the booking even though I had received confirmation via email. They were kind enough to accommodate us but it caused embarrassment to me in front of my guests.

Food was generally very tasty although prices are highesh for mezze. Good wine selection but house wine could be improved. Presumably pricing is to cover "free sweets and fruit" which was tasty and refreshing. We enjoyed the atmosphere and very good service. Would go back.

I am a regular to Maroush
However, i found the manager could have been a little bit friendlier when asking for a different table and especially that table remained empty till just before we left!
The staff are friendly, i do think they require more staff for quicker service!
I will definitely go again though.

Waiter taking order wasn't especially helpful. What I got - some dry chicken and a little hot sauce wasn't what I thought I'd ordered.
Partly my fault but not my finest dining experience. Those with more experience of the cuisine will probably enjoy it a lot more

We had an early dinner at Maroush Gardens and were quite pleased. The food and service were both first rate. Portions were large so we had trouble finishing our main course, but did, because it was so delicious. The starters were also very good, but since we have small appetites, I might skip them next visit.

I’ve tried many of the establishments on Edgware Road but the Gardens remains my favorite Lebanese in the city. Yes, the décor is terribly out of fashion but the quality of the cooking is first rate and the service can be friendly to the point you feel part of the family. In particular, Hassan welcomes me like an old friend. Also, as many Edgware Road restaurants are dry so if you like wine with your meal, the Gardens is one of your best bets. If you appreciate Lebanon’s wines, as I do, they have a good selection of the top producers.

Our table was easily booked with Open Table and, on arrival, it was ready for us. Service was excellent, polite, friendly, professional and well-paced.
Happy to serve three set meals for four people (which proved ample). Food was delicious and varied.
More expensive than we would normally expect but we are not used to London prices. Otherwise difficult to find fault.

Poor service, good food but overpriced for what it is (you can get the exact same food at maroush express basically, for half the price)

Ambience, which should be technically what you are paying for, is just not good: loud (including really bad "happy bday" songs!), feels rushed, feels like a chain
