Back home in the US, I frequent Middle Eastern restaurants. This was a very good one. I was with a big group (about 15) and they seated us and got us our orders and food in a timely manner. I really enjoyed the food. I had chicken and a sampler of all the traditional foods like hummus. I will definitely... More

This place is decent. I will not say it's the best because I have been exposed to the best when I traveled to Lebanon and Dubai. But it's a good effort for Costa Rica.

Waiters were attentive, dishes were ample proportion and price not excessive. Sadly i visited two days later and it was closed! As in Arnies famous words... "I'll be back.."

Something different in San Jose, this place offers some interesting variety during my weekend stays. Don't let the outside fool you, once you go through the trippy wood and burlap revolving door, you enter a cozy restaurant with 3-4 seating areas including sitting on cushions on the floor.

I went several years ago, it was really delicious and plentiful. Plus, after lunch, I was able to buy a really big jar of tahini in their shop next door.

This Lebanese restaurant was a big surprise. The food was excellent and service also. I have never had lamb before in Costa Rica and it did not betray. Highly recommended

Reasonably priced, nice interior, quite romantic, food was good but not a huge veggie selection like other Lebanese - but I may be applying European standards to Costa Rica!
