great authenic lebanese food spot in athlone. I brought my lebanese girlfriend here and she said everything tasted as if it was made in her own kitchen. spicy hummus is a must-try, and don't forget to finish with some lebanese coffee!

Very good food in a lovely setting possibly could do with a fee bob being spent on it and one of our dishes wasn't very tasty but all in all a lovely experience. Very good male waiter.

Just wanted to say that if next time you find a dish a bit on the bland side, let us know as soon as you can, and we'll see if we can spice it up for you,... More
