110 High Street, Esher, KT10 9QL
Who would have thought it possible to discover a world of Eastern magic tucked away in the middle of Esher High Street? Everything about Layla has the hallmark of a five-star dining experience. The interior is comfortable, calming and opulent, with delicate muted lighting. Everything from the bar area, with its elegant chandelier and row of banquettes with soft, plump cushions, to the Moorish arches of the comfortable dining alcoves, is stamped with quality and sophistication.

Head chef Jean Ghanen, together with his dedicated team, has comprised a menu that combines a modern European style with Arabic-Lebanese influences. The resulting dishes offer a delightful fusion of tastes, from the exotic to the sublime. Jean is clearly a master of his art. Plump for a mezze feast and indulge your palate by trying a little of everything - only the finest meats, spices and vegetables are used. Alternatively, choose from dishes such as oven-baked sea bass marinated with Arabic spices, chicken with vegetables, garlic sauce, mint yoghurt and salsa or tender garlic and chilli prawns, before spoiling yourself with a refreshing sorbet or the baklava - with perfectly layered pastry, almonds and pistachios, it is seriously divine. Specific dietary requirements are catered for, with many vegetarian, gluten-free and dairy-free dishes available.

The Layla team is particularly astute when it comes to helping to plan special occasion meals and parties. Welcome drinks, canapés and bespoke menus can all be arranged, so whether it's an intimate celebration for ten, or a landmark birthday party for 60, Layla is a great choice.

The staff are welcoming, knowledgeable and genuinely interested in providing good service, making sure that your evening will be one to remember. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, Layla hosts some fantastic live music - perfect for enjoying whilst sipping a perfectly made cocktail. There are few truly stand-out restaurants - Layla is one such place and in a league of its own
