“Excellent food and ambiance!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Had a dinner party at Sabaya with several friends in 2010. The food was delicious! The grilled meat and chicken were cooked perfectly and was very tender and the fattoush salad was the best. In addition the staff were very professional. Definitely worth a visit!

“Really tasty and a very nice service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

In a quite cozy place with a very friendly and helpful service Sabaya serves very tasty and delicious Lebanese food. The best Middle Eastern food I have ever had. First of they treated me with a fresh and nicelooking salad, then the appetizers (Tabouleh, Fallafel and grilled haloumi) was supertasty. I then had two mains, both very good.
In all it was clean, very tasty and good food. I am very glad I went here and defiantly recommend it.
