Then the best chicken kebab I've ever tasted. £47 for starters,mains and drinks for 3. Very reasonable. Staff were very attentive and served you very... read more

This place was great at first but it has gone downhill as they pack people in and the service is poor ....the food has greatly reduced in size since it first opened and I feel like they are hoodwinking people about authenticity.... The Lebanese "nan" bread is those cheap round tortillas not at all authentic oven baked flatbread

I've eaten there so many times I thought it was about time I gave them due credit. Courteous and efficient staff, varied menu. You can have a light lunch of wraps very cheaply or really push the boat out and cover the table with delicious bits and pieces. Staff carefully packed up what we couldn't finish and even added a...

I've heard a few good reports about this place and WOW, did it live up to it's great reputation for fabulous food!.... Some of the tastiest food I've had in a while and it may have bagged my top favourite! Not the smartest of places but great service, great food, great value. Already planned a second visit to take family!

Several of our friends have recommended this restaurant and one had passed on a menu to us. We were staying in so decided to have a take away but couldn't agree what - and then I spotted you can not only order take away but they'll deliver! So I rang - despite being really busy (I'd driven past about 10mons... More

Have heard lots of good reports so finally got to go along. Early Sunday evening, it was nice and quiet. Decor is cheap and cheerful, though bright and clean. We ordered mixed platters, and got a huge variety of fresh, tasty food. All delicious. Massive portions. We couldn't finish. Will definitely go back.

As lovers of Lebanese food since our first visit to Beirut almost 20 years ago we’ve been delighted with the plethora of Lebanese restaurants that have opened in Newcastle in recent years, albeit they are all owned and managed by Syrians, Iraqis and Turks. Mrs Wanderer insisted we try somewhere other than our favourite Lebanese restaurant so we headed to... More
