Went with my wife and her sister based on TA reviews, we were delighted with the friendly service, quality of food, and the overall ambience. The restaurant is BYOB. We made our own meze selection rather than the set meals, but everything was well cooked and presented. Only small grumble was the corkage charge of £9 for 2 bottles of... More

Visited this restaurant on the 24th Jan, and was welcomed by a friendly waiter. We ordered the lamb and green bean stew for main which was 5* !! The lamb was so tender, and melted in the mouth. Simple food but very very tasty. Definitely worth a visit.

I have been to beirut before, but they really exceeded expectations this time. Shared starters including delicious chicken wings and houmus, followed by a succulent whole grilled Sea bass - somehow boneless too! BYOB a bonus. I was very impressed by the friendly staff - they even went and turned the lighting up to enable them to take a photo... More

Unfortunately I've needed to give our lunch visit an average rating as their heating had broken down and the room was very cold. In their defend they did go and get a couple of space heaters but they didn't arrive until half way through the meal. The food was very good, this was the second time I've eaten here, so... More

Amazing food and really good/friendly service. There was lots of vegetarian starters to choose from and the ones we ordered were all delicious. Veggie moussaka was lovely!

Extensive menu with a great range of starters. We had grill meats(kebabs) for main courses and they weregood quality and great flavour. The staff were attentive and friendly. Next time we think we'll try a bigger range of starters as they are much better value for money and much more varied-spicy sausage and green bean dishes very flavourful.

If you want to experience a real Lebanese meal this is the place! Truly excellent food served by friendly pleasant staff who went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed ourselves. They don't serve alcohol but have no problem with you bringing your own. A great atmosphere particularly at weekends. We thoroughly recommend this restaurant!
