“Great authentic food -perfect for sharing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

The food is excellent Lebanese in Costa Rica --- which is hard to find in CR. Great dishes to share with friends and family. The flavors, ingredients and combinations are well thought out. I love their hummus, taboule, and grilled eggplant and zuchini. Highly recommend the "Lebanese Mesa Vegetariana" -- great to share for 2 people. Very filling. The server, Mario, is wonderful- very nice and attentive and the owners are always on site checking to make sure everything is to your liking. Great asset to Rohrmoser/Pavas close to Plaza Major.

“I love the atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

When you walk in you definitely get a great feeling. The decor is really nice and soothing. Transporting you. We ordered bocas. The baba ghanoush was amazing. I loved the different things served on top. The bread they serve with everything is hot and delicious. And you have to tell them to stop bringing it. I didn't care for the falafel and the hummus needed a little salt and pepper. However these are minor things. I feel when considering this place you should consider the entire package. The owner is ever present to check on you and ensure you are having a great time. The upstairs where they have parties on the weekends is super cool. Check it out for yourself as they are definitely worth a try. I love this type of food, so we will be back. Thanks for a great evening.

Best Lebanese Restaurant in San José. You'll find all the traditional Lebanese dishes and much more, refined, fresh, well served and delicious.

“Nope”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Haven't found a dish that I will go back for. I end up going again because I'm stuck with someone who decided to go, and each time I'm disappointed. I've eaten Lebanese in the Middle East and this is a very poor imitation.

“A nice change of pace from "comida tipica"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

We went in search of a nice Sunday noon dining experience and stumbled upon Sash. What a nice bit of luck that was! The place offers excellent middle eastern food, terrific service in a quiet atmosphere. It's definitely worth a trip to Rohrmoser for a meal.
