Excellent Lebanese restaurant, this. Our group arrived in pairs but once we ordered our food came in about 10 minutes- and was top notch.

All food was fresh and tasty. The chicken wings... More

2nd time been here and not disappointed go for the chefs specials of several starters on a plate and also for main course including a whole sea bass to share either £15 or £ 20 each. Take your own wine and beers and go midweek if you dont want to wait in a queue at the weekends. Staff also very... More

Just have evening meal here after a work team building day. Was a little unsure about what the food would be like, it was lovely. We ordered a mixed buffet of small starters and main courses!! Very enjoyable.

Have to say was not looking forward to my 2nd visit as the 1st was so poor but considering they were catering for 16 I was pretty impressed with the service and food. Will give it another go on a quiet night. Happy birthday jocelyn cassia. Ed Rollo
