“Solid Lebanese, For a Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

I would recommend this place - I just wish I had the money to try more of their dishes!

The ambiance is soothing and quiet. Everything was very clean, even the bathrooms! We really appreciated that after a day of walking around Dar. The service was so-so. Our waitress seemed to take our plates away from us as we were still chewing our last bite!

We both had different wraps and loved them. Just wish they would have been a lot bigger!

“Good food, decent prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

We ordered some Lebanese dishes at this place and the food was just lovely. We were also surprised that the fresh passion fruit juice was actually freshly blended passion fruit juice, given the price.

“Perfect for a lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

I have been here several times for lunch and for me, that spend most of my time on Zanzibar, I really enjoy to eat good Lebanese food at this place when I visit Dar. The staff is really friendly and the place got wifi which is an other bonus.

The mixed small meze and the Fatoush salad is two favorites. At one time I had breakfast there and that was a pleasant meal.

“Awesome lebanese food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

For good lebanese at affordable prices, this small restaurant is the place to go. The food is great, the ambiance is good, and the service reasonable. it is within the city, but is a quite place. No alcohol is available, which is a bit of a disappointment. Overall, a great place for an outing for good food.
