Enjoyable restaurant, excellent value

Make a dinner reservation, it is usually fairly busy. The first thing I liked was when you get seated the staff presents menus and a small bowl of soup of the day. Very nice and excellent lentil soup with pita and dipping sauce. Very nice touch. We were a party of 5 and started with a Mezza Tray... read more

Stopped here with colleagues for a dinner while in Bellevue on business. The service was extremely friendly and our meals where served promptly and hot. I am not a huge conesuer of mediterranian cruisine but I whole heartedly enjoyed my meal as did my co-workers. The place was crowded at dinner time but not uncomfortable. I would highly recommend this... More

It's hard to say how much we like this place. First off, the food is phenomenal. Granted, it is often high in garlic (and other seasoning) so don't be surprised when the taste explodes in your mouth. To top it off, despite the more than reasonable prices the portions are huge. My wife and I have split a shawarma and... More

This place has stood the test of time for consistency in food and service. The hummus is amazing as is the garlic salad dressing and dipping sauce. Try the crazy marinated wings and the huge mezza sampler appetizer platter. Clean and genuine owner/neighborhood service. Great carry out and catering. Need reaervations...if unavailable get carryout....mmmmm

We often visit this small restaurant in Bellevue for the best food around! The first course is served immediately- a lentil soup with warm pita and olive oil on a plate for dipping. Everything I have eaten here has been both incredibly flavorful, soft and tender, and saturated in garlic! Bring a mint, it is intense! The prices are reasonable... More

This is a Lebanese restaurant that has very good food and the best salad dressing I have ever had. But be warned, it is loaded with garlic and you will stink for days, but it's worth it. The service is great as is the food. One dish will easily feed two or be plenty to take home. The Lentil soup... More

A small, unassuming, place that tends to turn tables quite quickly - with an excellent and generous kitchen! Cuisine is middle Eastern inspired with very large portions and prompt, courteous service. Flavors are bright and balanced, with strong inspiration from the Eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea. Very enoyable!

Small restaurant, quiet locale, on a busy street, south of the Belleview Mall that features "to die for Lebanese food". (best since I was in Beruit 20 years ago). Meat dishes are prepared Hillal style, with many Muslim customers ordering "take out", let us know immediately that this is a special restaurant. Fresh vegetable soup is offered, followed by a...

This is my absolute favorite restaurant. The food is outstanding as is the service. The wait for a table is sometimes a bit long -- the dining area is pretty small -- but it's well worth the wait. We always start with the Mezza Tray (the Zahrah is amazing!) and follow it with Shawarma or Kabob (we love lamb!), then... More

Awesome dishes, packed with flavor and seems to be fairly traditional. The portions are so large that you could go family style for sure. Leftovers for days. This restaurant is cute and cozy. Enjoy!
