“room for improvement”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Good location (if you enjoy the bustling of Zurich city passing in front when sitting outside), quite good food at reasonable prices. The Mezzeh lunch for two was good and plenty. The Lebanese wine typical. However, the manner in which the staff serve their guests is perhaps also typically Lebanese - they definitely did not attend any of the famous Swiss hotel schools. A little more politeness and a more gentle manner would bring smiles to future patrons.

“Terrific food, lousy service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

Excellent Middle Eastern food which cannot be faulted, good atmosphere. Go for the prearranged platters which provide an excellent array of different dishes to try (meze) and dont skip in the grilled meze option.

Lousy, slow, rude service!

“Tasty food but service needs a lot of work”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

My husband an I went there for a quick dinner without a reservation. We walked to the front and ask for a table for two. The server asked if we had a reservation despite the fact that there were at least 10 tables free. He sighed and reluctantly gave us a table. As we were ordering we asked what he would recommend. Without even looking at us he just pointed his pen to the menu card.
Food came and it was very tasty. The restaurant was recommended to us because the food was good, and so it was. However if you go, be aware that food is tasty but service is terrible, almost rude.

“Good food, fair price, bad services”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Been there today for the first time, we have been waiting long before anybody came to take our order and when we asked for the drinks list we were told there is nothing else than the little page in the menu where you can find only liquors and some expensive wine bottles...

... that's kind of strange to don't be even able to see the price of the water or tea or rivella you want to order! I felt almost like leaving the place immediately.

once we ordered some tea ( still not knowing the price of it ) we had to wait a while before the food arrived, we took 4 different mezes and loved the food actually; very tasty and authentic, spicy and very well presented.

the picture of the food here in TA is appropriate and reflects what I have seen in there, pity the service is not really attentive and waiting times plus careless menu design tear down my review score.

Not sure I am going there again, possibly not.

“Beirut in Zurich!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

Excellent quality of libanese food,very authentic. You can choose among several dishes,a lot for veggies. Hummus was perfect,such as falafel. Service was kind but it seemed a little unadequate for the number of seats. Price is high,not in absolute but considering the quantity of food (you can't pay 5 falafel 13 euro..),also costs to make hummus are ridiculous but it costs 12 euro. I imagine that prices are levelled on Zurich standards. By the way,I recommend this restaurant to all people who love or want to try good Middle East cuisine!
