Went here last night and ordered the standard fare I would order in a Lebanese restaurant in The Middle-East and the flavours and dishes were exactly the same! So, needless to say, I was very happy as I just love Lebanese food. The service was good and the prices were reasonable. There's a playground outside for kids.

Visited the restaurant tonight. The bar was busy & looked like a good party. In the restaurant though, the food was overpriced & underwhelming.

For those who enjoy Middle Eastern food, Cedars is the best option in NBO. Prices are typical for a nice restaurant, and there are often available tables in the garden without a reservation. The tabbouleh is my favourite, and the Baba Ganoush is another winner. The falafel is a bit dry for me, and needs the chilli sauce to have... More

Set in a once residential house, the feeling of being 'home' is relaxing. The rugs on the walls bring touch of Lebanese to the ambiance. We indulged in a full mezze that was superbly done. The various bites and accompanying sauces were delicately done and the servings were more than enough for two very hungry tummies. If you be adventurous... More

Visited as a group of 6 friends and was amazed at the quality and authenticity of the food. Service was very good and food was exceptional. A little gem tucked away and well worth a visit. I was hesitant to visit as I thought I would be disappointed but considering the review thought I'd give it a go. It ranks... More

Only ordered vegetarian options and the food was great. We ordered the mezee for two and substituted the meats for other vege options and we'll definitely be going back. Be prepared to smell like garlic for days.

We recently visited Cedars on 28th March 2016. I had the barbeque chicken wings which are just as amazing as I remember them. I absolutely reccomended them!!! My fiancé had the steak with mushroom sauce....I loved that too! It was such a rich experience. Absolutely lovely!!!

Cedars is run by a Lebanese family in partnership with some well connected Kenyan and Norwegian business people. It offers a full range of mezze and meet dishes, shisha pipes, excellent baklava and lots to drink. The food is probably the best that Lebanon has to offer, and is carefully sourced for authenticity and quality, It is always busy, indicative... More
