Had dinner here in Jan 2016 with friends. The restaurant doesn't look like anything special from the outside but once you step through the door it's all good. The restaurant was full on a Wednesday night which is testament to how good the food is. There is a good sized menu with all typical Lebanese dishes. As previous reviews have... More

I was skeptical going through the burlap clad revolving door, but after being greeted by a waiter wearing a tasseled Tarboush, I sat down to an authentic and delicious lunch. The complimentary lentil soup and salted carrots were very good. My lamb and onion kebabs served with hummus were delicious. Oddly they came with fries, but easily substituted with a... More

This restaurant was nice. We ordered Maza. We got 16 small dishes. The offerings were good. The deserts were satisfactory. The belly dancer was talented although she only danced to Arabic music twice. She danced to a Spanish song and Hip-Hop once.

This is a great place -- great food, excellent service, realizing ambience. Love the falafel. All the menu options are good -- the mixed plates are the best. Just let the waiter make the choices for you, especially if you are new to Middle Eastern cuisine. Will return as often as my travels bring me to Costa Rica.

As soon as you walk in the restaurant, you know you're at the right place. The service is great, friendly, and helpful with the menu. Plates are varied and large, and if you want to try a bit of everything, go for the mezza. Save space for dessert, the baklava is worth it. The back of the restaurant is a... More
