Good food and nice atmosphere

Go and enjoy the Lebanese food or just have a shisha with their famous homemade juices or desserts. The interior design is breath-taking. Valet parking available. Don't forget to book before going on weekends or during the vacation season.

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

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.
