Nice atmosphere, service, and delicious food. Enjoyed the sampler dishes for our first Lebanese meal and will definitely try more when we return. The warm bread... More

Having just flown in to DC we wanted something fresh, healthy and not too far from our hotel. Stumbled upon this restaurant and from outside I was expecting a small kebab style restaurant.

Really tasty food. We had the two tasting platters and kafta harra. It was plenty for two people. Staff are extremely attentive. Sonny was especially polite and efficient.

We were a party of three: We had the Chef's plate (an assortment of Lebanese appetizers), the shawarma sandwich (served with fries or salad - we had the fries), the lamb mozet x2 (lamb shank) and we finished by sharing a halawet el jeben desert plus a Turkish coffee each: All of it absolutely delightful!

Visited as part of conference dinner. Accommodated us by giving separate checks to each diner. Watermelon-feta salad was fresh and chilled nicely. Hummus with puffy pita was a delight!

With not many different ethnic restaurants to visit locally here in Charlotte, I couldn't resist visiting some spots while in DC. Nothing like good food for a good price. Also had a half pitcher of Sangria which was amazing.
