Was in KL for an extended period, and this was one of the places we would go to eat on regular basis. Absolutely amazing lebanese food and unfortunately, any lebanese food I eat now compares unfavourably. The hummus is fantastic - particularly the hummus beiruti. We had a standard order of a hummus beiruti and a labneh bel toum (creamy... More

I can't say that the food is not good,it is very good and the setting is nice,however the desert is not as good as the food! In my opinion,the restaurant is over priced..very expensive! That's why we changed to a... More

Meat is perfect, dessert not that good, restaraunt is a bit expensive for Kuala-Lumpur. Yet sometimes you need something new.

My partner is Lebanese and we both have high standards when it comes to food but this restaurant had him claiming that the food was better than many restaurants in Lebanon. The servings are generous (with Arabic food, you always order may dishes to share, so the give away is how much is left afterwards!) although they don't bring much... More

This restaurant was a surprising find, as we did not expect it to be that good. It turned out to be an excellent Lebanese restaurant in every single aspect! The setting is very good as well (apart from the fact that it's located in a mall...) and the service was professional. All in all, an excellnt experience and we can... More

Great restaurant! Service was quick and friendly, food was delicious and healthy. We were craving for some veggies and got plenty on the vegetable platter. Hummus beiruti with bread was very good, and so was the falafel and chicken kebab. We highly recommend this place!
