Middle Eastern restaurant - high end in London

Hi - I am looking for the most high end and chic Middle Eastern (any type of food from the region) restaurant in London.
Thank you.

    There is a very schmancy place near my house called Pasha which is great, and the night before last I went to Levant (near Selfridges/Marylebone) which was very nice, but there were bellydancers (major annoyance in my opinion).

    Otherwise, there is Fakhreldine in Piccadilly which looks very high-end but I've never tried, and I believe there is a very nice Ranoush/Maroush place on Edgware Rd.

          Is that little Italian place still on the corner of Gloucester Rd. and Harrington Gardens?

            It's been a Nando's for about 3 years -- I believe it was a Dino's which is still available at South Ken station if you're in the mood for absolutely terrible food!

              No thank you... I'll pass on the terrible food. :-)

      I haven't been to many, but I do like Ishbilia near Harvey Nichols. The waiters wear jackets, which must mean something, and there are tablecloths on the table.
