My boyfriend and I randomly went here last Friday and I am SO HAPPY WE DID. Aesthetic: The restaurant itself is very cozy. The lighting is warm and there's beautiful music playing in the background. It has a very authentic feel to it and it SMELLS AMAZING inside. Service: The service was wonderful. We were never without a drink and... More

Three work colleagues and I stopped in to Little Lebanon for an early dinner and were delighted by the food quality and bounteous portions. We shared a sample platter which had falafel, hummus pita bread and stuffed grape leaves. I had a Shawarma platter with mojadara rice, which was new to me. It featured a gently but fragrantly spiced mixture... More

I've traveled the world and this is up there with my top dining experiences for sure! Friendly couple/owners make amazing, amazing food. Freshly-baked pitas; various wraps; hummus OMGosh and the baklava options -- all so good. If I lived in Columbus -- I'd probably eat there every day!

What a hidden, special little gem! This rest. Is small and just so special when arriving the first time I would not have guessed the food would be so delicious & wow. The food was all well made, with good flavor & traditional, just really great place. The owner/chef is also who helped us at first visit, and she was... More

This small Mediterranean Cafe was a great find on my most recent business trip. The food was incredibly fresh and everything was cooked perfectly, including the pita, which was baked to order in their kiln type oven. Everything was delicious and the service was fantastic.

We were looking for a new, different place for lunch after a busy day of shopping. We found it at LLB&B. We shared an order of Falafel crispy and delicious. Then chicken shawarma flatbread which features a flat bread covered with garlic sauce and mozzarella cheese, chicken shawarma, and mushrooms. We ended with chocolate baklava. Yum!! We'll be back.

Best hummus and baba ghanouj I've ever had! Several different kinds of bread, all freshly baked on premises--warm and tasty! Generous helpings, friendly staff. What more can you want? Looking forward to oredering other dishes the next time we visit Columbus.

My wife and I were shopping for furniture near Polaris and decided to stop at this little eatery called Little Lebanon. We went there at 4pm...of course, no customer was there. We eat like the elderly once in a while. The restaurant is in a shopping plaza on Sancus off Polaris Pkwy behind City BBQ. It is a very small... More

Love Mediterranean food, especially since I'm a vegetarian. Stumbled upon this place while shopping in Polaris area. Ordered a falafel wrap and fries to go, for about $10. Expected this to be pretty good, since the fries were $3. They were bland with no flavor and very few! Wendy's has better fries! Falafel wrap was good, but nothing to write... More

I wanted to check what the buzz was about since this place is pretty highly rated on yelp. The service was prompt and attentive. The place was clean although not meant for large parties. What I didn't love was the food. We ordered chicken shawarma bowl and kefteh kebab plate. The meat was a bit under cooked and chewy. The... More
