Pretty good

Acceptable atmosphere, food is good depending on what you order, prices are somewhat acceptable but could be a bit lower comparing to other similar Lebanese restaurants. Good business lunch but wouldn't take family.

A lebanese food type restaurant...I've been there many times in ABC mall achrafieh and dbaye...they offer good food...they started with adequate prices now they are overpriced...good quality of food...a wide variety of lebanese mezze such as hommos, kebbe, taouk (grilled chicken)...service is average...atmosphere is good...portions are small in accordance with the price...

Went there with friends. Though the restaurant was packed the service was quick. The food is acceptable and the setup is nice. I believe previously the food quality was much better however recommended for a quick lebanese bite

Excellent Lebanese restaurant! You may have lunch or dinner at any time of the day. Casual Lebanese cuisine. Soft atmosphere with the possibility of having your table inside or outside on a veranda. Try it!
