We always come here for their wonderful Lebanese style tartare. It was excellent as always. The pita bread came hot from the oven, the red pepper dip and grilled halloumi were very flavorful. All these, accompanied by some very good Lebanese wine, made for a beautiful and relaxed summer meal.

This was my first time eating Lebanese food, and I was pleased with the variety of food served here. I was in Raleigh on business and we had the basement room reserved. I liked how the meals were served family-style for sharing. Would recommend if you like this type food.

We visit this Lebanese restaurant nearly every year for our anniversary. We always say: "was it really as good as we remember?" It is - EVERY TIME. If you've never tried seared goat cheese, do yourself a favor and order it from this restaurant. Our waitress comped it to us since we were hesitant to try it, now we order... More

Basement banquet facility was perfect for my son's rehearsal dinner. Restaurant staff were great and kept the food and drinks coming. Steak and chicken kabobs, salad and amazing apps made everyone very happy.

Great service and tasty good enjoyed as if at your grandmother's home as site means grandmother. Atmosphere is relaxed and there is a children's menu. There are very good vegetarian options and very good lamb entrees.
