Incredible authentic Lebanese food, in a cosy and atmospheric setting. Very reasonable prices for the portions you get. Lovely family run feel, and very friendly and helpful staff.

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

I loved the food - the lamb main course I had was amazing! The 10 of us that visited were all looked after by the staff and really enjoyed our evening. If only I lived closer to Cardiff to visit again.

I actually remembered it from my uni days but never had the chance to try it. Both of us loved our meals, the meat was beautifully marinated... More
