Chez Sami is one of my favourite restaurants in Geneva and definitely the one I come to most frequently. The restaurant is normally busy, though it's normally possible to get a table. The food is fantastic (I'd particularly recommend the Fatoush and the Foul Medames) and the service always very good and friendly. Highly recommended.

We have tried this restaurant with my 2 friends. We ordered the mezes for 3 people. Although the taste was very good, the meze portions were really big and we could not finish them all. We were happy with the service. This is the 1st Lebenase I tried in Geneva so cannot compare vs others. However considering the food quality and prices in geneva, it definitely is a smart choice.

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.

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.

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.
