“Great Lebanese”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Having visited many Lebanese restaurants I must say I never thought I would find such a great Lebanese in Praque of all the places in the world. Cosy and calm, if not even romantic atmosphere (we were dining late in the evening), absolutely fantastic food and attentive service made our dining experience so pleasant.

“Gateway to the east”
Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant has a selection that is amazing. Wholesome lebanese cuisine, starters and main courses that will make u dizzy. The food is very authentic tasting and the ingredients are fresh. I grew up in dubai as a child and the many lebanese expats friends I had would give this restaurant a thumbs up. They serve the classical shisha (water pipe here too). The decor is very majestic at this location. I am currently studying in the Czech Republic and this is one of my top places to eat.

“Terrible service, endless wait for wrong food”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

We experienced extremely slow service, waiter could not communicate in english. It took him 3 tries to bring the correct appetizer over a 45 minute period. When he tried to bring the soup after a30 minute wait, another waiter intercepted him and took it to another table. He served my husbands sandwich to another table to people who had only been there 5 minutes.My husband had to wait an entire hour for his sandwich which came with the wrong ingredients. At this point we refused to wait any longer and asked to see the manager, we're told to wait for him even though he was right there. So essentially after an hours wait my husband never received his sandwich and we got up to leave. Food that did come wasn't that great and service was abominable.

“Poor service, poor food”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

We visited few days ago. We are very familiar with lebanese food.. the salads were not very great. The tabouleh was much less than the average and similarly the fatouche salad.
However, the Grill plate was nice and the meat was soft.
The service is not very good and it seems that it is the standard in Prague.
Service needs to be improved
