Great evening with fab table. Think the waiter needs to stop questioning how much wine we drink though!

An exciting blend of Lebanese-inspired recipes, Middle Eastern style and energetic live music, Layla Restaurant is an exotic setting for flavoursome mezze dining. Intimate alcove tables allow for cosy group meals, while the atmospheric lounge bar serves colourful cocktails and puts on exciting live music.

The Layla menu is packed with a huge selection of hot and cold mezze dishes, as well as hearty mains that include influences from the Mediterranean. To share, there are mussels in Sapporo beer batter with homemade garlic mayonnaise, goats' milk yoghurt balls with mint and cucumber, and hand-rolled vine leaves filled with rice, herbs and spices. For mains, seared duck with Madeira sauce is a popular favourite, along with generously-filled shawarma and falafel wraps.

Desserts at Layla in Surrey include pistachio slice with marzipan sablé biscuit base and a hint of kirsch, as well as special cocktails like the After Eight Martini. Afternoon tea at Layla is given a Lebanese twist, with lamb shawarma and tahini sandwiches served with exotic teas and seasonal bellinis.

With vibrant colours, exciting live bellydancing performances and a warm, buzzing ambience, Layla restaurant is a true taste of Lebanese hospitality. Esher Rail Station sits a 5-minute drive away.

    Waited 50 mins for starters then left. Terrible.

    The waitress got our order wrong, the waiter who brought the dishes wasn’t able to identify what they were. It was helpful that the price was taken off the bill. The bar, usually quite buzzing, was lacking atmosphere and the Turkish music was too loud and over bearing. I’ve had some good nights at Layla but this was disappointing.

    Poor cold food. Cold boring restaurant

    Lovely service but the food was distinctly average. The restaurant was totally inauthentic and we actually sent one of our mains back.

    Very nice location, setting and atmosphere. Good varied choice of food and drinks. Cocktails are very good, and a great selection.

    Very nice

    Food and service excellent.
    More of a loud wine bar that serves food.
    Our waitress was excellent.
    Would recommend for large parties rather than an intimate dinner as it does get very loud.

    The food was not the best and wasn't a great experience this time. The service was absolutely terrible, very slow. When it came to pay and we asked to split the bill the waitress rounded the bill up an extra £5 before splitting it in half!

    The staff, restaurant, food and cocktails were superb! We will certainly be back!
