Let's start with the positives. They offer microbrewery beer on tap, its actually quite nice, and before 9pm it is reasonably priced (S$8.9 per pint) for Singapore. The ambiance is pleasant. Hmmm.... cant think of any more positives. So on to the negatives... The service is slow. Often didn't see my server for 30 mins or more. I wouldn't mind... More

We have been sitting here for 2 hours. First one hour, we waited for drinks. For the next hour, they only change the charcoal for the sheesha once. After we asked for more charcoal, we waited for half an hour only to be told that the kitchen has closed and there's no more charcoal. Not only was the kitchen closed,... More

I have been to Al-Qasr many times and it never fails to deliver quality as far as food is concerned. If you are adventurous like me, try the mince raw lamb (reminiscent of steak tartare). It is a must have with a very delicate flavour. The kebabs are all good and the mainstay for me. Prasad the manager is always... More

Went there for the 2nd time last weekend. I thought they were okay the first time. The second time confirmed that they are overpriced ($28 for a lamb kabob khash khash) which was average tasting and confirmed they are inconsistent with their food quality. Our guest thought her shawarma tasted like fast food from a mall. And the most ridiculous... More

We went over the Holland Village for dinner and of course all restaurants were full, except Al Qasr, which was maybe 1/2 full at best. We were seated quickly, then it went down hill from there. The waiter convinced us to order the most expensive foods on the menu, though we told he we just wanted light portions. We were... More

The seemingly senior waiter took our order for a Mezza platter then another waiter took our order for mains. The mains turned up before starter then the staff brought the mains back 3 times when we finally got the starter. This was in spite of us stating we wanted to finish the starter before our mains. Staff did not listen.... More

Went for dinner with another couple and they had not had Lebanese before so food was quite good for them to get a good cross section of Lebanese dips and kebabs, hommos, tabbouleh, eating with your hands and all the good stuff. Relatively quieter end of Holland Village as well so not as noisey and full on as the restaurants... More

We live at Holland Village and normally go to Al Hamra. We thought we'd try this place to see how it was. Nothing was authentic, everything was tasteless, service was pretty average. I wouldn't actually care so much about service if the food was great, but it wasn't. We had to add salt to everything to try to make it... More

Went there to celebrate my mom's birthday and was very pleasantly surprised with their gesture of goodwill in celebration of her birthday and their great service ! They offered to cut our hard ice cream cake on our behalf ! The lady's service was fabulous , always checking if we needed anything... The lamb shawarma , falafel were very delicious... More

A Lebanese foodie friend says this is the best Lebanese restaurant in Singapore. I'm not experienced enough in the culture to say whether he's right or not, but the food is great, there's belly dancing and music, the ambiance is relaxed and it's got a casual, open layout that encourages chat or intimacy. As with all Holland Village restaurants, the... More
