Lonely Planet review

This Lebanese and Syrian restaurant (Al-Sham is the Arabic name for Damascus) has sophisticated décor, with craved wooden grills and outdoor seating and there's an authentic range of meze (starters), plus all your main-dish grills and kebabs. There's no English menu, so take a knowledgeable friend if you don't know your kubba (croquettes of lamb and cracked wheat) from your baba ganoush (smoky eggplant dip).
