“We had a whole fruit garden for dessert!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

We enjoyed very much seeing a full restaurant of people enjoying themselves, eating, drinking and smoking shisha.
The fish is very fresh, you pick your own in th cool room. All the mezze is excellent, and copious.

“Excellent food, service and atmosphere, really enjoyed and appreciated the meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2010

It was an amazingly pleasant experience to dine at Sultan Brahim. The service was outstanding and extremely charming and respectful and staff bent over backwards to make us feel at ease, even when we were the only table left (at around 1.30 am) and all the staff were waiting for us to close before going home, they continued to be extremely nice and gracious.

The food was excellent also, we particularly enjoyed the special peanut sauce with the sultan brahim fish and the selection of smaller red mullet.

It was also a pleasure to find a tasteful elegant setting in downtown beirut for a change (as opposed to beirut's typically euro-trashy, extremely over priced and pretentious restaurants and bars).

Look out for one of the head waiters named Wissam, he was excellent. Thank you Sultan Brahim.

“Surly staff but excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2010

Don't go here expecting a smile but do expect brilliant fish & seafood. And also a lovely garden terrace to eat it all (this is the branch in downtown Beirut not the original one). The staff treated us like a lower form of life but it was still worth it for the food.
