A good Lebanese restaurant. The space is big with nice interior. It delivers delicious grills, tabbouleh and hummus. The staff are welcoming but the service is bit slow.

Diwan Beirut is a very good restaurant that serves traditional Lebanese cuisine in a modern setting. Their food is excellent, service is good (not great) and the decor is modern but lacks warmth and comfort in my opinion, which is why I don't rate this...More

We had a nice lunch, with several appetizers and a couple of main dishes. Everything was delicious, except that the fish was a little bland. Dessert is offered for free. Service is thoughtful and gracious.

One of the most delicious lunch I ever had. For sure the best hummus. Everything we tasted was marvelous including the fruit and sweets that were served at the end. Many congratulations!

The food quality is good and the restaurant has a great atmosphere for big groups. The service is good and smoking is allowed. If you are searching for some traditional ambiance I would not recommend this option.

Good food and staff that seem dedicated to good service. This large restaurant is also not overpriced.

Extremely good Lebanese food. You can even order half portions of nearly all mezzes, so you can try them all. Super service. Premises still like 70s, but that's the charm of it. Good for large groups as well.

Description
The finest traditional Lebanese cuisine...DescriptionAl-Diwan Beirut was established in Achrafieh in 1999. Part of Ramy Holding, owners of the famous Al-Sultan Brahim, Al-Diwan Beirut was originally called Diwan Al-Sultan Brahim. In 2009, the restaurant’s name was changed to Al-Diwan Beirut, giving it its own distinctive identity. Al-Diwan Beirut not only offers the finest traditional Lebanese cuisine as you know-it…it also offers specialty platters, on a daily basis, that you’re not likely to easily find elsewhere, such as “fawaregh” or “fattet makadem”.Al-Diwan Beirut also offers a wide selection of delicious sandwiches, (shawarmas, taouks, kebabs, kaftas, etc.) prepared with the finest ingredients. So, whether you’re looking to have a full dining experience and be waited on by our team or you want to come in for a quick bite, Al-Diwan Beirut is the place for you! Location Al-Diwan Beirut is located in the heart of Achrafieh; Housed in a prominent 2-storey facility on Charles Malek Avenue, the street-level restaurant offers a dining experience in a relaxed yet tasteful setting, while the upper dining room offers the same great food in a more formal setting, suitable for your distinguished occasions. The upper dining room can be reserved for private parties. Delivery / Daily Specials Al-Diwan Beirut also has an elaborate delivery menu as well as daily specials to choose from. Its delivery service extends across Achrafieh and some parts of the Greater Beirut Area.
