Serves meat, vegan options available. In Lebanese cuisine you could find a variety of veg suitable items in cold and hot mezze such as hummus, chickpea salad, tabouleh, beans, stuffed grape leaves, falafel, and potatoes. Veg items are clearly marked. Also lots of meats. Operating since 1988.

First Review by CallumB

Veggie set menu is a real delight - Edit

Here for £12 or £15 you can get a selection of vegetarian dishes that they choose. Go for it. It is fantastic and don't even bother with the mains – the vast selection of meze will be more than enough to fill you up and tickle your taste buds.

Pros: Mouth-watering dishes, Huge range of veggie meze, Beautiful decor and quirky feel

Cons: You need to reserve at weekends

My favourite Oxford restaurant - Edit

Despite not being a vegan, nor even vegetarian restaurant, Al Shami is my favourite place to eat in Oxford.
It's best to go as a group of people as the dishes are mostly meze (small plates) so you should order lots and all share. All vegetarian and dishes are clearly marked on the menu and there are many to choose from.

Many (labelled) vegan options, and good food - Edit

The menu is very well labelled, with many vegetarian and vegan dishes labelled as such. The prices are low to moderate, though the portion sizes are a little small. The service was also good, and a platter of vegetables is provided before your food arrives.

We particularly liked the falafel (in combination with the hommos), and the fried cauliflower dish (Zahra Maqlia), as well as the spinach dish (Sebanikh Bilzeit)

Pros: Good food, Good service

Cons: Serves meat
