First time in Beirut and after this it sure won't be the last. Party of six had the set menu and it didn't disappoint in the slightest. Great food, good service and the BYOB makes it a splendidly economical dinner option, especially for a larger group. I can't wait to go back.

Generally good food. I have to say my kebab was slightly gristly but tasted good. Like the decor but is dark inside so could only just see my food! Surprised to see this place wasn't busy. Would visit again when next in the area.

Great staff, really friendly; our waiter remembered every detail of our order and it arrived without delay, all delicious. We tried many 'starter' dishes rather than starter and main but there was plenty to eat and all of it very, very good. We just love middle eastern food and Beirut was one of the best. Reasonable prices, water jugs came... More

Had a meal there last night after our favourite restaurant had closed down and was not dissapointed. Good selection of dishes that made it difficult to choose from as they all sounded wonderful

Tasty and interesting food. The staff are welcoming and we were not hurried through our meal. There were 6 of us and we all tried something different from the extensive menu. Everyone was happy and full! BYO means you can drink what you like. Jugs of water arrived throughout the meal when necessary. Very reasonably priced too.

Great place, food was delicious, reasonably priced and great staff. Went with a large group of friends as this place was recommended by someone who previously visited. Every one loved the food with no complaints at all. Only tried the one desert but was very nice. We booked in advance and I would recommend every one to do the same... More

Had a dinner during stay at Edinburgh. Nice and welcoming staff. Food was good but you have to tell them to make it spicy otherwise u are gonna get blend food. Food was well cooked. Interior was bit dark. But otherwise nice place to eat.
