An absolute gem of a restaurant with authentic Lebanese cuisine of the highest quality. It has a lovely ambience, helpful, friendly staff and food of the highest quality, which is not too hard on your wallet!

An absolute gem of a restaurant. Enjoyed the meal enormously. Very tasty. And not too expensive. It appears to be genuine Lebanese cooking.

Have eaten here regularly and always enjoyed. After my visit this weekend I will find it hard to visit again. The food was bland and tasteless, portions have decreased in size to the extent that my mains felt like a starter. Has the chef changed or what? Missed the English guy manager also.

A group of 14 of us booked in last night for a good friend's birthday celebration. The place was quiet when we started - only one other table was occupied.

The restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere, has pleasant thematic music, and is extremely clean. The tables are old sewing machines, which I didn't realize until I put my feet on the treadle. The fatoush was so fresh and had beautifully balanced flavours, just the right amount of lemon and mint and sumac. Refreshing and crunchy. The haloumi was a generous... More
