We had a very nice night at Beirut last Sat. Food was exceptional especially the Kafta Khush-khash with the accompanying sesame sauce. The ambience was nice as well. Waiters were very attentive despite the extremely busy night. I highly recommend it especially for a group party.

This is a great wee place. Everyone (quite an international crowd) was enjoying themselves and the vibe was fun. Very nice, attentive staff. Great food - quite a large menu - with a lot of similar dishes, so make sure to mix it up a bit if sharing. The moussaka (not Greek style) was very good, as were the starters.... More

I've always loved Lebanese food. A few years ago, I had the privilege of spending a few weeks in Lebanon for a work project, where I reveled in Lebanese food at its finest. Unfortunately, when I returned to the US, I thereafter found most Lebanese restaurants disappointing. Recently, while traveling for work, I walked into the restaurant Beirut by chance... More

The food here is basic at best; dry kebabs, watery, bland sauces. The steps down to the bathroom are deathtraps, with 3 of our party almost slipping down them, despite previous warnings from other guests! The service from one young man was fine, but another - who seemed his superior - was incredibly rude, including reminding our table no less... More

All staff were welcoming and friendly, the restaurant had a nice intimate atmosphere and food was served quickly. Waiters really knew what they were talking about, I had the sea bass and it was one of the most delicious meals I've ever eaten in a restaurant. My friends and shawarma and fatuous hand lamb rice. Everyone loved the meal. Can't... More

This place looks really nice and we went in for dinner recently. We thought we would treat ourselves to a nice meal. But we were very wrong. The food was really average and waiters seemed not very interested. The lamb we ordered had so much fat it was unbelievable. Our friend also had a snapfax but was rejected. I dont... More

Went to Beirut during the festival time for a preshow meal with my friends. The food was served quick despite that the restaurant was full and there was a long queue outside. The food was very tasty and fresh and came in good quantity. Service was quick and flawless. Would definitely come back after the festival as I was told... More

Went there on the 24th at 8ish, placed was packed and no reservation. They found us a table in within 10 minutes and food has been served reasonably quick for the people seating. I had hummus with lamb and mixed grill which they were both really tasty and nice portioned. Definitely recommended and I'll be back after the festival when... More

Went there in August 14 with wife and thought the place itself looked ok. We ordered Mix Grills and when it came the food was well presented but tasted really bland. But before my wife could even finish her main a waitress came to tell us the table needs to be free in 10mins. No time for desserts then. When... More
