Since 2018, I have recommended this restaurant to my friends and colleagues (both Koreans and Lebanese). After eating meals here, all of them left nice comments and gave positive feedback on its excellent food and service. its branch opens in Doha as well. I have...never been there but I am sure its food is as amazing as in Beirut.More

Heard a lot about it, Just visited this morning, I was totally disappointed with the taste of food!! mainly fatteh b laban & malizeyeh, you expect a better taste from a specialty place, everything we ordered lacked taste, the "Batata Harra" was under-cooked. On the...other hand, the place is sparkling clean and the ingredients are fresh, the bathroom lacks privacy as you can see who is inside from the door crack in the middle.More

Ordered dinner from Sawani Falfoul and it was a non impressive experience overall: - Their foul arrived in good temperature and good state. - The side vegetables were not fresh. - The falafel sandwich was poor in content and tasted average. - tried their fried...snickers dessert and that was excellent.More

The place is cosy located in Badaro. The staff is friendly. The owner is taking care of the food, process and quality which add a special touch to your visit. You can try traditional dishes and special created ones. The taste of Lebanese food there...worth a trial. Prices are affordable and fair. You can also buy some homemade ingredients like Arak, wine, pickles...More

The Lebanese staples are served well at this joint. We ordered foul and msab7a for delivery, they were served in generous portion, with freshly baked bread and lots of veggies, some shatta and olive oil on the side. I would ask for less garlic next...time, else it was really good. Will definitely try other home specialties.More

100 meters away from my apartment in Beirut and for one year trying to get a meal in this place, today was the day to have breakfast. Ambience is simply Lebanese, cozy and relaxing. Service and presentation is resembling the Lebanese culture and tradition. Food...is fresh, delicious and cannot get enough of it!!More

I visited this place with a friend for breakfast. It is somehow pricey but compared to food quality it is reasonable. The tomato was so delicious. I ordered Fattah and sweets. They were very well made. The orange juice, the tea and coffe were also...well made. I stayed for around 2.5 hours on breakfast. Many people came and the staff were adequate. The food is as my grandmother used to do.More
