the service isn't the greatest as the waiter we had wasn't very knowledgeable about the menu or very accommodating to alter anything. If you can handle multiple waiters watching over you while you eat then the food is well worth it. chicken tarwouk is the best out of 3 places we tried it. salads and dips are fresh and well... More

This was our saving grace after leaving "The Ship". Have also eaten at KL location, therefore knew it would be good. Great service, tasty fresh food & value for money. We will return.

So for a start, I should admit to having a Lebanese mother and I know great Lebanese food and cook it myself. This didn't come close. We ordered the more expensive (because of the tabbouleh) mezze platter for 2 to start but when it arrived, there was no tabbouleh on it. One falafel, one kibbeh, some fattoush, some nondescript salad,... More

Tired of the hawker stalls we visited on a whim. Thoroughly enjoyed the mixed grill and the stuffed grape leaves. Meats all seemed marinated and well seasoned. Grape leaves were about the best I've had. Came here twice - first visit restaurant was very busy. Recommended to friends who all commented on the food. BTW, no pork and no alcohol... More

Living in Sydney I eat less types of Lebanese food, so I rate this place good. It was nice for some good home flavours however the portion size of the mixed plate was tiny, and I was disappointed that many foods I asked were not available. But overall good food.
