We were in a reasonably large group, they did a reasonable good job keeping everyone orders together however most of ours was forgotten about with bits and pieces coming randomly . After asking a couple of time where our lamb was (by this time we were hungry) when it did finally come out it was raw (not pink but raw)... More

Great position right on the river. Greeted as soon as we arrived and ushered to a choice of tables. Very good waiter service. Food was interesting but for me, it was a bit oily.

Fun atmosphere and often a one man band playing Sunday afternoon this is a fun place for a few drinks and some tapas style food. The food is really good, the lamb kebabs are delicious and... More

As we booked earlier and arrived before noon, we were shown to our table of eight for our family week-end lunch without waiting. We ordered a variety of the Lebanese cuisine that was traditional. We were introduced to this restaurant by a Lebanese friend. If you are not sure of any item on the menu, the servicing staff is very... More

Four of us had dinner here on a Wednesday night. We ordered a selection of dishes to share and everyone thoroughly enjoyed everything - highly recommend the lamb skewers and the calamari! The customer service we received was 10/10 and was topped off by a complimentary sparkler candle on the birthday cake we had brought in. Highly recommend.

We came here as a group of friends and enjoyed a wide range of food from the menu which was well priced. Be careful that if there are multiple orders for skewers etc, the kitchen might join everything together and short change on bread and accompanying dip - they will however rectify this if you ask, no issue.
