Middle Eastern Restaurant Yasmeen has opened its doors in London’s St John’s Wood this week (7 April).

The 48 cover restaurant serves a selection of mezze dishes, known as ‘tapas of the Middle East’, featuring cuisine from Lebanon, Syria and other areas of the region.

Dishes include Arayes, a mix of minced meat and parsley grilled on Lebanese bread, and Soujouk, a spicy Armenian sausage.

“We are very passionate about Yasmeen providing an exceptional dining experience,” said general manager Bashir Esbar.

“Mezze is typically enjoyed at leisure whilst socialising with family and friends; a significant part of the culture of generosity in the Middle East. Yasmeen aims to recreate this warm hospitality for diners.”

An outdoor terrace area features seating for an additional 20 diners, and take away, home delivery, tailor made menus and private catering services are all available.

Restaurant magazine reported on the growing demand for Middle Eastern cuisine​ as a 'healthy alternative' in 2014.

Yasmeen is open seven days a week at 1 Blenheim Terrace, St John's Wood, London.
