Great food, great vibe

The vibe of the p[lace is wonderful! Large, open restaurant, nothing too fancy, but good food, filled with people enjoying themselves.The smoking floor upstairs is shrouded in a pleasant aroma of shisha without the actual smoke stagnating.

The food here was fantastic, as was the service, and the environment. Most of the patrons were natives of the region which is a good sign. Food was well presented, fresh and generous serving sizes. We were with a Jordanian friend and he also agreed that the food was "Salam" - good. The valet parking was also nice. Hummus, fatoosh,... More

One of the more informal Lebanese restaurants in Kuwait. Its comfortable and the food is good. I kinda expected more from the restaurant after speaking to people and reading the reviews. I wish I could rate the restaurant 'Good;, half way between average and very good. Service was slow even with lots of staff and they do the thing I... More

I have to say it's the worst Lebanese food I have ever tasted. Over seasoned - too much salt, too much unnecessary spices which only overwhelmed the natural flavours of the ingredients. Very dry chicken shishtauk. Not much atmosphere, reminded me more of a huge canteen. A disappointing experience overall.
