The food at Comptoir is fresh, healthy, honest and affordable. We wake up early to provide customers with unique Lebanese breakfasts to eat in; offering everything from organic yoghurt topped with pomegranate and orange blossom water and -our favourite- halloumi cheese, crispy onion and tomato tortillas. Visit us for lunch and dinner as we serve our guests all types of interesting and colourful dishes, including hot and cold mezze – perfectly sized for sharing- wraps, salads, tagines, grills and Mana’esh (Lebanese style pizzas). For dessert, nothing is more authentic than the sweet taste of baklawa – Lebanese pastries in a variety of flavours such as date filled semolina and walnut filled flaky pastry. All products can be packaged up and enjoyed on the go.

I love eating at Le Comptoir, but this was a serious off night. We sat for around 15 minutes, looking at our plates waiting on the counter to be brought over to us. The food was cold - lukewarm at best - when it arrived. My spinach pastry dish had dried out. It took us ages to get any attention when we wanted to order more bread, get the bill etc. Not a good experience, and it wasn't busy when we first arrived either. Please don't deteriorate, Le Comptoir - I'd really like to come back! I won't return to the Poland Street branch though - this experience scarred me enough.

Popped in for light supper after evening at Soho Theatre. Lovely welcome, great food and service. It’s a lovely sized Comptoir - cosy but not too close to other diners, big windows looking out to Poland Street so good for people watching. Very friendly manager and other staff. Fully recommend.

Overall we had a lovely experience. The food as usual was gorgeous. The only slight let down was the table we were given (you couldn't get out to go to the loo without nearly knocking your neighbours drink over) but this was due to how busy it was. This also meant service was rather slow - it took a long time to order and our drinks took a while to arrive. Again, this was all due to the fact the restaurant was so busy as it was Friday night. Would recommend!

Everytime we go there just for the shish taouk and it was very dissapointing this time. very difficult to cut the pieces not tender at all and my shish taouk wrap did not have a nice taste - not recommended. Im hoping it was a one off bad experience as its generally good but not value for money

A lot of improvement has to be made in client service.
We had to ask the waitress to order drinks and dinner. Otherwise, they will not come.

Food was amazing and delicious. However, we had to wait ages for a waiter/waitress to approach us and at the end I had to call them. Also at the end we received bill and same situation happened - we had to wait ages to pay and I came to the counter and asked if we can pay. The service shouldn't be included in the bill because no one was interested of taking orders and payments from us. The chef cooks amazing food, waiteres need improvement.

Really lovely place to have lunch. Laid back and chilled, right level of background music. Our waitress was really lovely but could perhaps do with some more trainings she was very slow to come take our orders but who looked to be the manager was amazing and so friendly.

Food was delicious, with great options for the vegetarian members of our party, surroundings were lovely and servers were very competent and friendly, but unfortunately the service was very slow and it did take a long time for us to order and our food to come. Luckily we weren't in a hurry and I would definitely eat here again just because the food was so lovely

A good chain of restaurants, all with interesting decor and efficient service. I have tried four branches and this one is no exception. Set off Oxford street in a relatively quiet road.
Lovely food, which I enjoy for the different flavours and generous portions. It is not overpriced.
Do have the chicken wings, they are delicious.

That food was really good and great choice of Lebanese foods on the menu. We were welcomed and seated, the service at this point was very good but after we had finished eating our main course no one came to clear the plates or ask us if we wanted desserts/coffee etc. So what begun very well petered out once we had our main courses delivered. They weren’t busy so there was no excuse for such poor service towards the end of our meal when we needed to go to get to the theatre on time. So I recommend for he food but not wholly for the service!

The food was good, the waiters very helpful and caring, the ambiance was perfect, the music had the perfect volume but the tagine was just a bit dry so it was not super super amazing but it was still good. The starter for two was exquisite, the chicken was so tender, I still dream about aha. We will definitely come back. A bit expensive but totally worth it.
