An elite restaurant chain in the heart of London, Noura’s delectable Lebanese charm meets high expectations.
FOR the very best in Lebanese and Mediterranean cuisine in London, there’s really only one name that springs to mind: Noura.
Set up in the early 1970s in Lebanon by head chef Jean Paul Bou Antoun and his brother, restaurant manager Nader, the two quickly gained a reputation for excellence and, by 1980, they had opened their first restaurant in Paris – with seating for just 30 patrons. Five years later and expansion to new, larger premises was crucial. Soon, more prestigious locations came on stream and the famous Noura ‘chain’ was born – a chain with a name and reputation for style, design, elegance, customer service and utmost quality.
Noura’s reputation for excellence was not only championed by those who dined at its restaurants, but by industry critics, too. A Michelin Award in 1993 and the Medaille d’or in 1994 solidified its place among the truly great restaurant names and, in 1999, Nader Bou Antoun decided it was time to relocate to London, where there are now three outlets: a restaurant and lounge in Belgravia, a restaurant in Mayfair and a delicatessen, café and shop in Knightsbridge – all of them continuing the Noura tradition of quality and service.
Don’t think, however, that you need to visit Noura yourself to experience all the delights on offer. You can avail yourself of Noura’s legendary service and cuisine wherever you like, thanks to its full catering and events hosting service, which extends to planning wedding receptions, banquets and corporate functions – your wish is Noura’s command. You can always order your meal as a take-away, too. However you wish to experience Noura, you can be certain of enjoying the same standard-setting service and the most incredible cuisine every time. In an ever-changing world, it’s comforting to know that some things remain constant.
