Went for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Chose from the Lebanese menu and it was tasty and reasonably priced. The Hummus was freshly made and they have great home made pickles. Interesting wine list (ever tried Moldovan Merlot?). Staff were friendly and attentive. Will come back soon to try the Japanese .

Although sushi and Lebanese food is a weird pairing, you won't regret trying it out. The sushi is amazing, especially the platters and boats! There are two different menus depending whether you eat inside or outside, but you can always order off of both.

This is a joke of a restaurant . The food does not look or taste lebanese at all . The japanese is mediocre at best. The mains are all above 1400 so be prepared for a hefty bill. This review is of the new branch at westlands

Great sushi, but the rest of the menu leaves something to be desired. Outside seating is available and it is great. The drinks menu is seriously overpriced and the drinks are that great. Service is OK.

We visit The Phoenician regularly. At first we were put off / suspicious about the fact it is a Lebanese / Japanese restaurant - not a combination you see very often. We only ever eat Japanese there and it is very good. The designer rolls are quite novel and worth a try, the sushi is always good and fresh and... More

Bland over-priced food in a boring looking setting in a shopping mall. I was not convinced by the ingredients freshness/quality. On a positive note the waiters were poilite.

As regular clients of the Phoenician, we are yet to be disappointed with the food quality. A little bit on the pricey side, but it makes a nice change.

My husband and I went here a while back -we particularly enjoyed the Japanese aspects of the menu -the tempura and the sushi. I had a Lebanese entree, which wasn't bad -just not as notable. It is pricy, but the ambiance is great. Service was excellent. Would definitely go again.
