“Fabulous, beautiful food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2011

My family and I (children aged 4 and 6) had the most beautiful food at this restaurant. They had a children's menu that catered to all kid's tastes but they prepared the most beautiful lebanese meal for children. My husband and I were jealous of their meal!

The bellydancing and band was a bit noisy, but it added to the ambiance of the restaurant and the kids thoroughly enjoyed the spectacle!

A beautiful meal in an amazing hotel.

“Good Lebanese food and festive ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2009

We enjoyed the set menus available at Al Khayal - it makes it easy to choose, as you pick generally what you'd like to try and then just have dish after dish delivered to your table. The live music and belly dancer add to the environment, which manages to be elegant and entertaining at once. The quality of the food and wine was very good (we had one of the menus with only meat, not seafood) - the lamb was particularly delicious.
