“Good lebanese with a very creative twist”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Usually I am not into creativity when it comes to lebanese food. I personally prefer the traditional lebanese food. At Leila however they know when to be creative and when to remain traditional keeping untouched the traditional great lebanese dishes (hommos, baba ghannouj..) and adding a twist of excellence to other items such as desserts and other less common dishes. Leila's food end up being great especially when it comes to Baba ghannouj, chich tawouk and a special mention to their dessert which are out of this world (Ghazal beirut, mamaoul jebneh and all others)

“Regular Lebanese restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Food is good, service adequate but not waw. It is always too crowded and a bit noisy inside. Nothing particularly original on the menu but all you expect in a Lebanese restaurant.
