Very good food, presented in organized and creative ways. Friendly staff. Prices are so high to be for everyone, too expensive. No parking, and you have to pay around 10$ for valet parking services.

Tasty place but it used to be better. Still one of the best Lebanese restaurants in town. I wish the quality could improve again.

Couldn't find jeddah branch so im using this one to write a review The location of the place is good. On tahlia on top of a popular building, parking could be an issue though. Ambience is cozy and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. Food was excellent although i couldn't understand the Lebanese/ Turkish fusion. Cherry kebbe is a... More

We asked the concierge at Holiday Inn Dunes to recommend a good restaurant within walking distance serving Lebanese food and we were told that Assi was very good. We were not disappointed. We asked the waiter to bring us a nice selection of dishes which he did, and he explained each one in detail. Each course was delicious and we... More

The place gets the hype due to it being linked with a popular Arabic singer in Lebanon. The setup is ok, the food not so ok, very average for Lebanon. Hostess is very sweet and helpful. Manager never showed up, the waiters are useless, rude and have no idea what they are doing. For sure will never be back, and... More

We decided to go to Assi restaurant as we wanted to eat Turkish food and someone told me that Assi, beside Lebanese food, has Turkish food. It is located in Verdun, It's very easy to... More

I adored this restaurant. Everything on the menu is just excellent, especially the kebabs specialties. I loved it and would definitely go bask there again.

We visited for lunch during the week. I usually don't like Lebanese food: mezze and grilled meat/chicken, but this was really different. You will be surprised by the most delicious tabbouleh and Fattouch you will ever taste, and I mean really really good. I was almost full just eating those. The rest of the food is also good. The only... More
