DELICIOUS KEBOB

The lunch menu is replete with Middle East items. Meats like chicken and lamb and beef and even fish. There's vegetable selections to include hummus and baba ganoush. I settled on the chicken kebab entrée, which, for me, came with sides of hummus and a couscous salad. While awaiting this dish, I... read more

My wife and I visited this restaurant for lunch and were somewhat disappointed. Service was slow and portions were small. We ordered the yogurt and cucumber dip and were given few pieces of pita bread and shared the lamb kabob which was decent. We liked it but for what we paid were not impressed.

The dining experience was wonderful. We had appetizers which were yummy and for an entree the skewers for 2 which included perfectly cooked skewers of lamb, beef, chicken and shrimp serviced with rice and couscous. The vegetables between the skewers were cooked perfectly. One can order wine by the glass or bottle or bring your own for a corking charge... More

Wonderfully charming atmosphere, GREAT food and good service. A bit pricey, but is for now, the best Mediterranean place we have found that is consistently good. Try to ensure you catch the belly dancing show! 

It is a twist in food taste to downtown west palm beach. It is Mediterranean food at its best, very cozy décor and atmosphere, with a backyard seating available for family. But it is a couple style setting, menu and vibe. they have belly dancing sometime on the weekend. great value for lunch, but pricy at dinner . Check it... More

This place is great. Everything we have tried here is delicious. My all-time favorite is the hummus bi labneh... the beef tips go really well with the hummus. The beef kabobs have some of the most tender meat I have ever had on a kabob.

I have known about this restaurant for years, having driven by it while in downtown West Palm Beach. Never tried it though until I purchased a promo coupon from "Living Social". My wife and I were going to see a play at Palm Beach Drama Works on Clematis Street so we needed an early reservation. No problem. In fact when... More

We went again and were very happy with everything. The salads were fresh and inventive, mine with felafel-friends with grape leaves. For main courses, the lamb shishkabob was great and shrimp shishkabob was not on a skewer, but very good. Service was very good. Will go back again.

As someone who travels widely and is a "foodie", I have rarely come across a Middle Eastern restaurant as good as Leilas. The service is excellent and the owner is extremely personable.You must try any of the kabobs and hummus, muhumara. and sambusek as appetizers. This is truly a superb dining experience.

We made a reservation for dinner at Leila Restaurant because of a promotional on-line certificate which turned out to be a terrific investment! From the appetizer of hummus with beef tips to the chocolate desert and everything in-between... we were really impressed. You can see by the pictures that the food presentation was appealing and the entrees were as good... More
