nice suprise

This resturant is very simple. But, simple is good! The staff was very helpful in helping me to decide what to order (1st time). I had the chicken kabob. The veggies were nice and crisp and the chicken was tender and flavorful. It was nice to be able to have a relaxed and quick dinner.

A very simple place where you can enjoy an amazing food! Very clean, good service. totally recommend their daily lentil soup, the chicken is antibiotic and hormone-free, kids eat for for free on Thursdays if an adult buys a platter.

Visiting again the Rockville area we decided to go to the see if the Lebanese Taverna was still as good as we knew it for many years. We found out that it was the same type of food as we were use to. The grilled chicken was very tasteful as well as the hot bread. We were glad to find... More

At a recent visit to Lebanese Taverna I was surprised by the long line despite a near empty dining room. I waited in line for over five minutes before it moved , I had been to other locations before and I was looking forward to the food which is typically good. I was finally waited on and I promptly sat... More

I normally steer clear of chains (with a few exceptions), and am likewise loathe to write them up here. But I had a very pleasant meal at the Lebanese Taverna in the Congressional Plaza center recently and figured I owed them their props. We’ve eaten at other locations over time (they have about a dozen locations in the Metro DC... More

The Lebanese Taverna Cafe occupies a prime location on the square in Rockville Town Square. If you have had Lebanese Tavera food then you will not be disappointed by the food. Of course the menu is scaled back somewhat, but it still gives enough sample of the cuisine. I certainly recommend the hummus as it is creamy and goes well... More

I stopped here for a quick bite to eat on a trip down south. I have only tried Lebanese food once before so I am not well versed in this type of cuisine. Despite my lack of knowledge, taste and flavors don't lie. I had the Kafta platter. It was really flavorful and tender and I liked the portion size... More

This is a very good deal for a quick, on the go meal at a reasonable price. The food is Middle Eastern with several starters that you can add to a platter of beef or chicken. There is also lamb and salmon, soups and sandwiches. The Kia Platter allows you four sides of your choice with either Chicken or Beef... More

I had the chicken shwarma sandwich, which was good but wasn't moist enough and it was too garlicky. The pieces of chicken were of high quality however. For $2 more my wife had the same sandwich with fries, that was good, and also a small salad. Overall this was a good meal at a reasonable price.

Great food, great service. Some customers were annoyed at the wait for food but they don't realize its because they are actually cooking it. I felt it was normal waiting time for lunch. The kaftan is amazing and they always throw in plenty of fresh bread.
