Pretty awesome and afordable libenese food in Geneva. At first it might seem that the place is a bit creepy since the decor and stuff is nor very fancy, but the food is fantastic and the price is reasonable. The vegetarian plate is superb.

The food was indeed delicious and the portion (mixed plate) was very large. The only problem is that the place is rather busy / crowded so don't arrange your romantic date here (it's also the red light district) The service was friendly.

The meat turning on the spits here is real -- cuts of meat, not some reconstituted blob. The seasoning on the meat is excellent. I recommend the assiette (plate) mixte. That way you get to try not only the kebab but also the fabulous hummus, the excellent felafel, etc. So much flavor on one plate.

Believe the hype because this place delivers on delicious food! The lamb shawarma is truly mind blowingly tasty! Went there 2 time in 2 days because it was so delicious! The shawarma plate is also amazing and has about 2 shawarma worth of food on it plus extras like hummus and cheese. Absolutely amazing and best of all cheap in... More

I have been to Parfum De Beyrouth about 15 times. It is a 5 minute walk from the Geneva Train Station. No trip of mine to Geneva has finished without a Falafel a here. If you choose to have a Falafel at Parfums De Beyrouth, please make sure you have one for me too. I was last here in the... More

Excellent, hearty portions at a good price; great busy atmosphere; and tasty. It was recommended to me by a work colleague as the only place in central Geneva where you can get a good meal for less than CHF20. He wasn't wrong.

Yes! These guys do a great job at making reliable, cheap, middle eastern food (a sandwich costs around 8 CHF). Although the restaurant looks a bit like crap, I am sure hygiene standards are met since I never been food poisoned or heard of anyone, who has.

I was told by a friend who used to live in Geneva to give Parfums de Beyrouth a try. The sharwarma was unbelievable! The sauces and topping give the sandwich an amazing flavor that made it good until the very last bite. I doubt one could find sharwarma better than this outside of the middle east! Sooooooo good!

This was the first place I went to see when arriver in Geneva 12 years ago. Is still a legendary kebab place from Libano. The quality of the food is just amazing. There are a lot a kebab place all around but make sure you go for the one with a Libanon cider on the logo. With 20 CHF you... More
