I used to love this place. The service was as exceptional as the food. But I suppose when places get this busy it loses that touch it once had. Was disappointed at my last visit the steak wasn't cooked as I usually liked and the quality overall seemed to have lost something. Seemed like the food was whacked onto the... More

The hummus and the dessert were also very tasty. The inside of the restaurant is also warm and cozy so I would definitely recommend it for a good, price-worthy (as long... More

This small restaurant, a little way out of the city centre, offers a wide menu of Lebanese food and wine at reasonable prices. They gave our party of 4 a warm welcome, and the level of service was great. Everything we ate was beautifully cooked. We will be going back again, and again. The only thing i,d improve is the...

Went to visit as part of the large group of about 8 people. Food was served quick and service was friendly. The lamb chops in my opinion was great, really flavoursome and well cooked, comes with a good portion of rice, wouldve preferred it with some salad on the side though. Was also able to try the Mina Chicken and... More
