Used to be better

Service was below average. Kababs are always good here. Everything else, average. Might have been affected with the health violations.

I used to like the sandwiches (kabab, khashkhash...) and also mashawe plates. The sandwiches are small and are not as delicious as before. The price is expensive. It has recently failed in the ministry of health test. I will not consider it for the time being!

A trip to Lebanon without trying this succulent grilled meat is useless. The meat is the best in the country. The food is clean, lean and has a great presentation and taste. You should try all kinds of Kabab and chicken. The other Mezze are fabulous too. The Meat pies (Lahm Baajeen) is a must try also along the yogurt... More

If you feel like staying home but having some good kababs and mezze, then Kababji is unbeatable. The foul and hindbeh are great.
