Excellent Lebanese restaurant in the center of Budapest. Simple but perfect. Extra points for gluten free pita baked in place!

As a Lebanese living abroad, I always seek to find restaurants that remind me of my home country. I am so happy that I finally found Leila’s Cuisine which made the job! Highly recommended!

We haven't been to the restaurant for almost 2 years (covid), but we have been ordering regularly, at least once a month, and we still believe, this is the best restaurant in Budapest, such an experience, food is so delicious & those beautiful plates...🌞 Muhammara,...hummus, falafel/falafel sandwich, batata harra/kouzbara, rokka dates salad are just a few dishes-all vegan 🌼 -we always order as they are amazingly good. Nice, friendly and caring service, which is also rare to find these days. Our favorite restaurant, we really recommend it.❤️More

We have been regular customers for the past 3 years and the food never ceases to amaze us. Excellent quality, service and now the little "plus" we discovered for ordering : biodagradable containers. Thank you guys for your work & the planet!😊 Ana Vanyek

I went here really excited as the restaurant has a good reputation. However I found the food to be a small and dry, such as the Koftah, while other dishes were also small, and therefore expensive. I would recommend the shish tawook though and waiters...were nice. Menu for main courses is very small.More

We have been there two weeks ago, and i loved all their dishes... I usually eat Arabic food so i know well how it taste and it was delicious😋 ... the waiters was kind and available “Zaid”, the responsible of the restaurant was really gentleman...and the price was reasonable .. Thank you for the experience and i hope to be able to visit you again😊More

Love it ♥️ hummus and baba ghannouj are by far the best I’ve had! Their Muhammara is gluten free!! (Which is usually with bread crumbs but apparently they were smart to change the recipe to a more delicious and healthier one 😋). As a Lebanese,...I would say it’s by far the only authentic Lebanese restaurant in Budapest! Highly recommended for everyone to try, if you’re looking for high quality food!More

Amazing place! Food is awesome and service is very nice! I have tried many “lebanese” places in Europe but this one is by far the best place in Budapest! I would recommend for everyone!
