“A great Middle Eastern restaurant”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Middle Eastern food is one of my favorites and Lilo is pretty much an institution for this cuisine in Cardiff. We went for a family dinner to Lilo's and weren't disappointed at all by the quality of the food, the service or the atmosphere (nice and noisy!). Be prepared for the portion sizes which are quite big and definitely try out their wide variety of juices (some are quite innovative!). It does get awfully busy, so a wait is sometimes ncessary

“Very reasonably and LOTS of food.”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

There are so many great places offering fantastic authentic food on City Road and in nearby Roath, but if you haven't tried Lilo... do it! So much choice of food, some unusual Lebanese dishes but plenty of favourites on offer too if you don't want to try something new (the hummus is amazing). Very reasonably priced. They don't serve alcohol, but plenty of amazing juices and drinks on offer.

You also get huge portions, and the bread given with the starters is amazing- so difficult not to stuff yourself.

“Fantastic lamb ribs!”
Reviewed November 5, 2013 via mobile

Lunch in Lilo's is always a good bet if you are in Cardiff. Good service and great food. But what can I say about my lunch, started with fatouche which had very nice clean flavours but I like larger pieces of bread in mine to soak up those juices. The star today was the lamb ribs served with rice and salad. They were to die for, succulent, nicely seasoned, and not over cooked.
The only downside with this restaurant is no alcohol, but hey, the super carrot,lemon,ginger and honey juice more than made up for it.
Been many times and will definitely return.
