when i call i already had a bad feeling, no hello, no goodbye, no real confirmation. it takes time until you are served, the waiters were very rude, a place to avoid in any case

Horrible place. Terrible food. Late service. Cold. Too crowded with tables. Not clean. No phone signal. Very expensive. I can't believe they still exist anyway!

We went there on Friday night. It took the waiter ages to take our order for drinks not to mention the order for food. Food was ok but nothing special. When we had finished dinner it took them again 30 minutes and actually they only reacted to me asking for the bill. The bill came and the waiter had made... More

NEVER AGAIN! There is way better and cheaper lebanese food with better atmosphere and better service than this restaurant! I feel like I'm a victim of theft with all the money I've spent there! We had a Groupon Voucher, on which (yes that's my mistake!) on the tinest of tiny parts it said that it's only valid on Sunday -... More

It was a tuesday night and we had a reservation. We ordered the 8 (dont remember the exact number) appetizers and the main dish (grilled meat and rice). Food was ok, but considering the lebanese options they could have done something better. It was ok with falafel, kibbeh and hommus, nothing particularly special. Meat was tender but could have been... More

There was no cellphone signal in this restaurant! :( But the food was nice, and our group of 5 could linger and chat over a leisurely dinner. We ordered the Mezze for 5 people for CHF 173. It was a mix of hot and cold dishes, mostly vegetarian, but some had meat. I liked the variety of food. Not sure... More

We came with a Dein deal voucher of chf 99 value. For this, we got 8 small Mezze vegetarian dishes. The taste wasn't bad, but the service was, how to say a bit "two faced" artificial friendly like aspartam, it tasted sweet very sweet but it was fake. We ordered Prosecco to start with at 8.50 per glass, no complain... More

We went there two weeks ago for dinner, four friends. I made a reservation on the phone the week before, the person on the phone was a bit in a hurry and probably not the friendliest, but not unfriendly or rude either and I called at 7pm when the restaurant was probably full, so it's understandable. The reservation worked out... More

We had a rough start with service at this restaurant right from our phone call to book the table; the responder was really unfriendly and very much in a hurry. Our waiter appeared soon to be very distracted about service: he forgot repeatedly to bring our orders of water while insisting that we had had it already, and he brought... More

I have just tried to make a reservation at this restaurant and the attention on the phone was the worst I have experienced! The person, who took my phone call did not even wait until I finished talking. Basically, I just mentioned that I needed a table for 2 persons this evening at 7pm, and this person, who did not...
