This restaurant is down a bit of an enclosed alley which will drive your GPS crazy. The place was packed, but they did manage a table for us. I suggest making a reservation. I found the staff to be quick and efficient. You can order...the smaller plates but we ordered larger dinner portions, mostly because we were afraid that all the smaller plates would not fit on the table.More

Very mediocre food. My meatballs could have been from any Mediterranean country. There was nothing Lebanese about them. My friends veg mezze platter was bland. The service was good.

What incredible food! Everything we ordered had it’s own flavors and they danced so well together. We ordered the grilled mezah and the chicken tawok! We found out the place has been in Oslo for over 25 years with the same Owner/Chef who still cooks...almost all of it himself. For some reason, Mr. Bourdain came to mind as I felt as though he might have loved it too!More

If I could give it -1 stars I would. The food is okay, but overpriced. The waiters were extremely rude and seemed to just want to get rid of me and my friend as soon as possible. If I could go back in time, I’d...stay as far as possible from this place. It was my last night in Norway and it was a horrible way to close a lovely trip.More

My husband and I ordered the vegetarian mezah, and it was simply amazing! They filled our table with small sized dishes, and we were sad we could not finish it. The dishes varied between sweet, spicy and savory, and the bread was so tasty, we...actually ordered two extra. The dessert was good, not fantastic, but the main course was so good, I still give them five stars. Especially because of the attentive staff, who checked on us regularly, to see that we were happy and content. The food was served really quickly, and the atmosphere was nice, allthough a little noisy, because there were alot of guests. I really recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes food that tastes alot, and who is not afraid of spices.More

Far too expensive, far too simple, little food and tasteless… just a disappointment… Nothing special and to offer such food is a shame for mediterranen/ arabic couisin.

Sat outside with my brother and sister, we ordered the Mezah (asked for vegan and meat options). Delicious and varied tastes, next time I will order even more vegan dishes; they really stood out as exceptional!

I went there for the first time with a group of friends, this was also my first time eating palestinian cuisine (we had it vegan as well), and it was so delicious and rich in taste, with great variety! It was also very filling so...i left quite stuffed, as you should :) It was nice to share the meal with everybody else and get a taste of every single dish on the table. The staff was so friendly and we got to thank the chief personally :) they were all so sweet, smiling and really made us feel welcome :) do recommend!More
