“Quick and tasty lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014 via mobile

Had the plat du jour for lunch with a business colleague. Very reasonably priced, authentic taste and presentation, quick, friendly, efficient service. Will return if in the Paquis.

“There are better Libanese in Geneva”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

We came to this restaurant for diner with a very high expectations. The food was pretty ok but nothing exceptional. Staff was pretty cold and seemed to be a bit tired after a long day.When we asked to take away the french fries from the Kefta, they add salad and only salad without any seasoning, this was very low quality for the price to pay.
So overall it is ok and in a convenient place but nothing extraordinary and overpriced, even for Geneva.

“A gem in Geneva!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

It's hard to decide where to eat in Geneva at a reasonable rate. This is a really good place, a few streets from the main rail station that provides a very good quality meal and enjoyable evening. As always, the manager switched to English as fast as we opened our mouths and could not have been more helpful explaining the dishes, the menu was excellent and hummus fantastic. Just be aware that we only had 5 meze between two and it was plenty and we could not have eaten any more- so their set dish of 7 dishes for two would have been impossible. Lots of Lebanese in the restaurant, always a good sign. Geneva is expensive! but the cost of this meal was very good value. You'll pay this and more in lots of places for average meals and this was a really enjoyable evening with great food.

“Disappointed ”

Was looking forward for an evening out last night Sunday only to find the restaurant closed.
I hope we did not miss a warning 'closed on Sunday'!

“Best Libanese restaurant in the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

You will not be disappointed with this charming and friendly Libanese restaurant. Order the mezzé and let the chef surprise you. A great choice specially for vegetarians as the menu plays a lot with eggplant, humus, taboule etc. Simply delicious!
