Mezaziq Middle Eastern restaurant
It seems the boycott that Restaurant owners have asked for last week is not just for Lebanon, or at least that’s how Mezaziq Lebanese managers understood it.
MANAGERS of a Lebanese restaurant who persistently allowed customers to smoke shisha have been evicted from the premises.
In spite of warnings from the police and environmental health officers, Mezaziq, in Brackenbury Road, Hammersmith, let its customers flout the smoking ban and use shisha pipes in the basements.
Following pressure from the council and the police, the landlords evicted their tenants and the restaurant closed.
Hammersmith and Fulham Council leader for transport and technical services, Councillor Victoria Brocklebank-Fowler, said: “Mezaziq has been evicted by the owner of the building following considerable pressure from the council. “This illegal shisha café has consistently flouted the law by allowing shisha to be smoked inside the premises and residents have also complained about noise and antisocial behaviour.

I love that they “consistently flouted the law”.
To paraphrase the old song: “They fought the law and the law won….”
Well? What the hell else did you expect? After all this is NOT Lebanon! You break the law and you pay the consequences! Let them move back to their ole country where anything goes!!
made my day!!
and that’s how it should be done..
the Lebanese government should learn a thing or two from this
I wish laws were applied strictly on everyone here as well not just people who have no connections or have no political affiliations and the ones who do can get away with anything. Were a long long way from becoming a civilised country.
It’s in a sleazy part of London
If you don’t pay the tax that allows you to smoke, they will shut you down.
Part of this tax is paid to fund the UK’s international commitments …. like funding the training of the Lebanese Army.
