“Al Hamra is way better”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We live at Holland Village and normally go to Al Hamra. We thought we'd try this place to see how it was. Nothing was authentic, everything was tasteless, service was pretty average. I wouldn't actually care so much about service if the food was great, but it wasn't. We had to add salt to everything to try to make it taste like something. And to top it off, it was expensive. I would honestly say, go to Al Hamra, it's just a few doors down and way better food.

“Superb service makes it a great night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

Went there to celebrate my mom's birthday and was very pleasantly surprised with their gesture of goodwill in celebration of her birthday and their great service !

They offered to cut our hard ice cream cake on our behalf ! The lady's service was fabulous , always checking if we needed anything...

The lamb shawarma , falafel were very delicious though kids spaghetti needs alot of improvement. Chicken morsel was made of breast meat though not dry. Lamb chop is harder while lamb chunk was more tender.

“Hummus Sweet Hummus”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

A Lebanese foodie friend says this is the best Lebanese restaurant in Singapore.

I'm not experienced enough in the culture to say whether he's right or not, but the food is great, there's belly dancing and music, the ambiance is relaxed and it's got a casual, open layout that encourages chat or intimacy.

As with all Holland Village restaurants, the drinks list is a little pricey and will add to the cost of your night out, but it's destination dining so you know what to expect.

“Excellent Food & Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

I discovered Al Qasr 3 years back and I've been a regular visitor ever since.

Food recommendations:
Mezze Platter is a favorite, a big plate (2 to share) of excellent falafels (Indian masala vade types), hummus (chickpeas paste with tahini/sesame paste), babganoush (grilled mashed brinjal/aubergines), tabbouleh (parsley salad), a cheese roll and a grape leaf roll. With this a basket of Pita bread is served (charged separately). On most days this is dinner or lunch for 2 easily.

If you are more than 2 or have an excellent appetite like me, I strongly recommend their Lamb Chops - YUM. Their kebabs are also nice, the Lamb Shewarma is excellent. Their Tagines with couscous I haven't found arresting.

Extras:
They have an outside and inside seating.
They have 2 smoking tables outside - a 6-seater and 2-seater.
They serve wine (No fancy collection), beer and spirits.
They have weekday lunch sets, which are very worth the money.
On Thursdays they have FREE Wine for Ladies!!!
They have a belly dancer on Saturday nights (I've not had the pleasure)
