I always think of Leila as fusion Arabic food... Their own take on classics (it's the only place I eat fattoush), plus very well done grills and desserts. Good for a big group or family. The place is cute and welcoming and stylish! Good shisha too. Great place to bring friends from overseas and avoid the tourist traps... Great service.

If you are at ABC Dbayeh and want to have lunch, do not think about twice, Leila is the place to go. The food is just delicious, the hommos, the garlic potatoes, the chicken liver, the makanik (lebanese sausages), the galic labneh (lebanese yogurt)... Do not forget to try the manti, an armenian dish that Leila prepares in a wonderful... More

Have eaten numerous times in the ABC Mall and once in the Verdun restaurants of Leila and have always had a positive experience. Excellent food and friendly service. Authentic Lebanese cuisine, well-worth trying. On weekends and holidays, it can get crowded, so expect to wait if this is the case. However, I beleive that waiting is usually good sign. Not... More

We visited Leila before, and we really like the theme of the restaurant and the service but I think food was much better before. It is still good Lebanese food but it used to be great.

I visited Leila before in dubai but nothing beats the one in ABC mall. Everything on the menu is dddddddddddelicious, must try their signature dish "ras al asfour", humos with aurma, and tabouleh. If you ever visit ABC mall skip all the restaurants and head to Leila

Trendy, chic, delicious and special lebanese restaurant. It is always full so you must wait for your table. The service is excellent and the staff (waiters and mangers) are very friendly, helpfull and courteous. The food is more than excellent, the taste, the variety, the temperature and the cleanliness. You can enjoy also an "arguileh" in your stay.

We came to Leila's starving! We ordered and told the waiter that we were very hungry. He brought us the food quickly, which was great. The food was delicious and the hot dishes were the perfect temperature. Affordable, tasty and perfect service and staff. Highly recommend!
