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.

    Went for lunch with friends - food was great and very generous portions
    Service was a bit strange (turned up and no-one in the restaurant to meet us) and a little slow, but friendly and waiter offered different deals on the menu (on top of existing deals / set menus)
    Would go back, as waiter explained there is live music at weekends and restaurant more buzzy

    Beautiful classy restaurant, staff are extremely helpful and polite, food is absolutely delicious. We celebrated a family birthday so had our 3 children from 10 to 17 and they really enjoyed the food - we had the sharing platters and ordered extra, any of the chicken Farooj and lamb Shawarma dishes were favourites, and the falafal and Harra diced potatoes were great for vegetarians (and everyone else).
