This was our first visit and whilst the food was very nice, the restaurants ambiance lacked character. The dining area was set around a fountain outside, but the tables were pushed together instead of using all of the space. The staff seemed slightly bored. I can however not fault the food.

Excellent, my partner is a vegetarian also allergict to fish, the choices she had to choose from were comprehensive, personally I eat meat and again was difficult to choose from the many off the tempting menu. There is something for all tastes whether veggie, meat, spicy or not so, definitely a must if you're in the area, we will go back on our stay

Went here loads a while back but haven't returned for years, worried kids might not like the food. Kids are older now and nothing has changed it is still great. Starters of humous, taboulleh, lamb meatballs and chicken wings all went down treat. Pitta bread is really fresh and soft and the picked gherkins were the sweetest I have ever tasted. The chillies that come on the pickle tray add a great touch of spice when added to the dishes. Never had main courses here before but now realise we were seriously missing out, after all the starters the four of us shared a chicken kebab and lamb cooked with rice. The kebab was tasty with lovely soft chicken and the lamb with rice was really aromatic infused with cinnamon and cumin. Both dishes were a real hit. Bill came to a very reasonable 90 euros with drinks, five starters, two mains, pitta and pickles and a bottle of wine. Staff were great and the outdoor terrace was beautiful. Now we know the kids like it we will certainly be back.

i have been going to this restaurant for as long as i can remember-i know from speaking to others that it can be a bit of a marmite experience-ie you either love it or hate it--i and i think the majority of people will be in the former camp.
the food is lebanese and not chinese as the name may suggest so is very meat orientated-the starter of arayes(apologies if spelling out) is amazing-i could live on it--no fancy cooking here just good honest food

the dining room is beautiful as is the outdoor dining area-the service is attentive and friendly

brilliant with kids and highly recommend as a family restaurant
