“First taste of Lebanese Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

After hearing great reviews thought we would give this restaurant a try and we were not disappointed, the service was excellent and the staff were really helpful without being in your face the whole time. As we were new to this cuisine the waiter suggested that he bring a variety of dishes which all turned out to be great and really tasty. Excellent value for money and the fact you can take your own alcohol is another bonus for this gem of a restaurant, my only question is how soon can I arrange a visit back there.

“Very, very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Enjoyed another excellent meal here. We did not book a table but we were found one straight away. Excellent service. If you have not been before, I recommend the mix of different dishes, there are loads of vegetarian options too. Good value and great atmosphere.

“Always great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

We come here often and find that it's consistently brilliant. Food is great and there are so many different choices I always end up trying something new every visit.

Had a lot of fun evenings in large groups here and even when there are 12 at the table the service is always prompt and faultless.

“Fabulous food every time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

I have been going to Albaik for the best part of 2 years, and I have never had anything other than fabulous food and generous hospitality. I have introduced so many friends to the restaurant, and they have all returned.
The standard of food and service is completely reliable, under the gaze of the ever-present Mr Ali Al Ali. They also do a take out service and catering for off-site functions. I have sampled both of these, and the quality is just as good.
Finally - what can I say about their bread? Simply, "try it!"
