I went there with two friends and It was the first time in a Lebanese restaurant. We shared a lot of stuff and we spent less than 10 pounds each. 100 % recommended

Wonderful authentic Lebanese food - Mezze platter to start - a great variety of tastes and dips - great value for money. The main course was a combination of grilled lamb and chicken with rice e and grilled peppers which also tasted incredible
