This Lebanese food was a blessing after 8+ days of eating Asian food. The service is very attentive and quick. Food is absolutely divine, we had two salads (tabbouleh and fattouch) and a mixed grill to share, plus the hot bread and homos as entree. The grill was fantastic, juicy, melting in the mouth. I had a lemon juice with... More

been frequenting al amar @ pavilion and express on bukit bintang for years. we usually end up ordering the shawarma platters (tolerable) or end up having the weekly leftovers (i.e. Sunday brunch..great for hangovers). meat is generally decent quality but susceptible to overcooking/charring. missus tried the grilled chicken which was a revelation and made up for everything else..e.g. bringing out...

I really enjoyed the Chicken Shwarma Sandwich here, but it was way too small for a dinner portion. I'd recommend ordering two dishes because some are small. WiFi doesn't work but that may be a temporary issue.

This is the first ever time I tried Lebanese cuisine. It was somewhat quite similar to Indian's and Turkish's. I love their fried carimari and the naan. Very tasty. The service was good and nice eating atmosphere in the restaurant.

The Pavilion is one of the western style shopping malls in Kuala Lumpur, so the pricing at this restaurant wasn't cheap, but it wasn't super expensive either. It is clean, the service is good, and most importantly the food is high quality. They do their sauces very well - especially the lemon thyme sauce they gave me with their fried... More

I cant live in Kuala Lumpur if Al Ammar was not there to offer me great Lebanese food treats. I am not an Arab but a world traveller and if you want and love Arabic food then go to Al Ammar. The Sunday brunch is amazing and reasonably priced too.

We love Lebanese food and have tried it nearly around the world in different restaurants. The Al-Amar was one of the few that have both. A great location and great food. Here you will find very authentic Lebanese dishes as well as an arabic decorated cosy place. The service is friendly and the prices are ok. Not cheap but well... More
