Average food and service, cramped space. Not really a great experience. But we've got free tea after the lunch and it's above the average level of German tea.

Fast service, friendly staff. T he taste is OK. Above average i may say good. Portion is small or not big. Its a bity they added a portion of chilli sauce in such away and taste..that has nothing to do with the labanese food. Price is responsible.

We found the restaurant via Trip Advisor and were delighted. I was very hungry so we chose the first menu and it was more than enough. It was lovely to try all kinds of specialties, many completely new to me. Every time we thought we couldn't take another bite, the waiter brought something new to the table :)

Authentic Lebanese restaurant with all the salads, hummus and above all meat ready to be grilled. They have also my wife's favorite sambousek with cheese. Excellent food, limited number of tables inside and unfortunately at the time of our visit only cash was accepted.
