Worth the hype

For an express joint in the middle of Bukit Bintang, the food was remarkably good, we had the manaeesh, hummus, kebbe, and shawerma, the whole family enjoyed and we even went there again! Service needs improvement though...

Pretty good Lebanese dishes served as buffet eat all you want style. I am not a great fan of buffet but my friends are so we tried Sunday brunch. Price very competitive for kl and food had enough dishes to suit all. Deserts were popular and had a big range and there were good Meze dishes for appetisers. Being in... More

While we can forgive the waiter for prob not having the best day , the food was beyond disappointment. dont be mislead by the glamorous , 5 star looking interior because the food is all but that. they are priced slightly higher than the average restaurant here but dont expect the food to live up to its price. The beef... More

I went through some reviews which states that its excellent and one of the best. But I dont agree. There are much better arabic restaurants... More

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

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