I went to Mandaloun for dinner. The food is amazing especially the hummus with truffle and chicken. The atmosphere is very nice. I recommend this place. Prices are not high and food is amazing

The waiters were very arrogant. They didn’t have a clue of what contain a dry martini cocktail. The closed 12 when I asked a bottle of wine 11.45 and I was informed the they will close 1am. The portion of fish I ordered of 1kg...for 2 people turn on to not be more than 700gr. They barely told us to go at 12am give us the bill with bad manners. I represent one of the most important schools in hospitality business management and I have never experienced in Bucharest such bad service. I really don’t recommend this place. It’s a pitty due to the food was excellent.More

Food was average for a free meal, with their prices it was abysmal. Add to this the gross lack of hospitality and you've got yourself a cocktail that will ruin your evening. Strongly not recommended.

We went to this restaurant because we like Arabic food and we liked how it looked from outside. We were kind of disappointed, since the food was good, but not special, we ate better in other Lebanese restaurants in Bucharest. The restaurant is big and...colourful, with Oriental decorations, and there were a few small items on the house, which was a nice touch. However, the prices were very high. The service was nice and prompt. We also disliked the cigarette smoke, coming from the smoking area (inside the restaurant!!). I am not sure we will go again.More

Terrible meal! Hopefully we will not feel sick! Bad taste mix of colors decoration. Loud and poor quality of music that makes even more difficult the attempt of digesting those products. Not interested to pay another visit anymore, ever.

My wife and I moved to Bucharest recently and have dined at dozens of restaurants from the old town to Aviatorilor, Aviatiei and more. Hands down, Mandaloun is one of the best restaurants we dined in here in Bucharest, food 5+ stars, service 5+ stars...(Paul was our waiter and he treated us like family, very welcoming), atmosphere 5+. If you are in Bucharest, whether for vacation or you live here, you absolutely have to try Mandaloun (at least once)!More

Found it by chance, because it's far from center but this is the best Lebanese restaurant by far, yet, in Bucharest. Very, very good food, beautiful location, good and fast service.

The restaurant is so gorgeous and Arabian style, exotic carpets and toilets, extraordinary desserts and traditional Arabian dishes. The waiter was taking too long to bring the dessert but we were enjoying the singer that was singing. Amazing experience and overall very satisfying!

The food was very tasty. The ingredients were very fresh and the portions big enough. I was very impressed with the food delivered.

First visit to Mandaloun, the decor is really funky and colorful, the food was really delicious, but I didn’t give an excellent as they still allow smoking which is unfortunate, I will go back but the smoking should be kept outside.

This resto attracts a lot of clients with its flamboyant oriental look, the dancers and because permits smoking in some areas, including the nargileh. The food is good but I know better Lebanese restaurants in Bucharest. It is not a must see and the prices...are pretty high for what this resto offers. For me it was easy to get there as I live nearby but I won't visit it again soonMore

I had visited multiple times Mandaloun with a good experience, but yesterday evening it was the worst Lebanese I ever had. The service was extremely slow, the starters came all one by one and the main dish was a total fail. Ordered a mix grill...which came cold to the table. We asked to warm it up on grill but it came again cold to the table. Very disappointed because I took a Lebanese friend there who I told this was best restaurant, but it ended with a total fail. After yesterday I can not recommend this place anymore.More

It's a lovely setting for the best, tastiest Lebanese food I've ever eaten, though I've never been to Lebanon, so maybe it's better there :). An amazing menu with mouthwatering choices. Everything was delicious. I had chicken breast bits in a pomegranate-onion sauce and could...not have been more pleased and surprised at the flavors. My friend had the charcoal grilled chicken and it was moist and rich. This restaurant is clearly popular. I fully recommend trying it out.More
