Great local restaurant, they speak no English so bring a local, but the food is authentic and very good.

“Very good value, authentic Lebanese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Authentic Lebanese food, like the one we eat at home, which is almost unique. All of this for a very good value.

“Welcome!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Having friends who are local always helps when it comes to reccomendations. We asked our friend for somewhere cheap and quick for lunch and this place did not disappoint. The surroundings are probably worse than a typical greasy spoon in the UK but the food was fantastic, especially if you take the advice from the 'Welcome!' man who hosts and I suspect owns the cafe. If you can shut out the decor and try not to look too closely at how clean things are you will get the warmest welcome and have a great meal here. I highly recommend it.
