Meet up on Saturday 10th at 12.30

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

If you say you want a mezze for say 9 people, 2 of whom are veggie, you get enough for 11 and everyone can give the swerve to anything they don't like. Nobody has suggested we all have to have the veggie meal

Sorry again then. I thought that was what was being suggested. But I do know about Lebanese food and don’t need patronising.

Actually it was an idea I was putting forward just in case it suited everyone. It doesn't. That's fine :hug:. I feel obliged to leave the veggie things for veggies if there is a mixed spread and I adore Cheese Sambouseks. Lamb ones are nice too ;).

As long as you non-vegetarians don't hog all the vegetarian stuff :mrgreen: :D

Whatever we did at Tas seemed to work out ok. I am sure extra bits and bobs can be ordered if necessary.

I am looking forward to it! I haven't been to this place before. (Needless to say not just the food: I am looking forward to meeting people again too!)

OK I have just tried calling Al Waha but I suspect they open a bit later. I will try and book for 10/12 peeps Sat 10th March at 12.00pm a set menu for 10 meat and 2 veggies so we can dip and dive. Lets hope they can accommodate us and don't want a deposit. Will report back later.

OK. They can't accommodate us on the 10th - Big party already booked. They can do Sunday 11th March at 12pm - 2 tables of 6 next to each other. How does that sound ???? Please let me know ASAP so I can confirm with them. Thanks Peeps.

I could do 11th, in fact it would be quite convenient.

Karadekoolaid had quite a tight itinerary. We could always go somewhere else if we had to (Zedel, one of the other Lebanese choices or even the Dim Sum place near Paddington) and book Al Waha for a future date.

March 11th suits me too, however, just to let you know that this day is Mother's day (Mothering Sunday) ... it would normally be the Sunday I take the oldies out for Sunday tea, but we decided to move this for that reason, hence I am free ... :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

I'm going to have to give it a miss, sorry. The lovely DWP have just written to me to tell me they are deducting money from my weekly allowance. Fair enough if they could explain why! So I'm having to pull my belt right in! But will watch this thread with interest. :hungry:

I absolutely can’t do Mothering Sunday I’m afraid. But as said before there is always the chance I will have to drop out at the last minute so please don’t base your decision around me.

I'm afraid I'm completely unavailable that weekend now as a friend from York has invited himself to stay as he has a Lodge meeting in London on Saturday. Hope you find something that suits everybody.

I hadn't appreciated Sunday 11th was Mothering Sunday, as it doesn't affect me at all
I have a slight preference for the Saturday but can do either

Should we try Yalla Yalla? Or look for somewhere else?

Looking on Trip Advisor there are 272 Lebanese restaurants in London 29 fairly central, (not sure if the filters will stay in place on this link)
https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurants-g186338-London_England.html

Apart from Yalla Yalla Beirut Café near Marble Arch looks plausible

The problem with Mothering Sunday is that I have a mother, I am a mother and two of my daughters are mothers. :D It’s always a difficult day to juggle. My York friend has been told, very firmly, that the Pigs will not be available for Sunday lunch. Easter must be very early this year. I hadn’t quite appreciated that.

We are happy to go with the flow, I was hopeful to have heard what Kools arrangements were but......Can Yalla Yalla or one of the others accommodate either Sat. or Sun.?

Sorry! I'm definitely not around for lunch on Sat 10th. I'm going to Royston for lunch with the car club
.

We have a possible afternoon evening thing in Ely to follow Royston. If that does not go ahead, OH may stay home and be free to come to lunch at Yalla Yalla. We will let you know as soon as possible...

If, and it's a slim if, I receive back dated benefits further to an ongoing appeal (don't laugh too hard!) I would love to join you. The menu looks lovely but I can't see prices. Probably looking in the wrong place. Can someone add a link please? And is there an absolute cut off date for adding to numbers?
