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

Excellent food, service, portions & value - a plus that you can bring your booze as well! Would definitely go back.

I am a fan of Lebanese food but this restaurant totally sucks ... 4 of us ordered different dishes and all of us didn't like what we got ... moreover the quantity was not enough and we left the restaurant hungry. Totally regretted going there ... Ambience is good but that's about it ... food sucks

We wanted to try something different the food wasn't spectacular but it was well cooked and tasted nice. Not a large selection but enough variation to satisfy most. Lack of dessert also but after the main I think it would have been a challenge. Staff were very on hand but at times seemed to be confused with what was going... More

I was surprised to learn that this place had such good reviews. The food was nice, but nothing stood out for me. The staff were very helpful, we were a party of 18 but some finer details about our reservations were lost somewhere down the line and we waited around 20 minutes for a table (which is actually very impressive!)....

First time here on way to Fringe show. Food was wonderful, service was great and BYOB made it an economical night out. Will definitely return.

Had been here with my Wife, nice and lovely staff. The food was nice and up to expectations. I would rate this as the best place for Arabic food in Edinburgh.

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.
