Al-sham is without a doubt one of the best restaraunts in the city, the high quality of service has been consistent for a more than a 5 years. Every time I visit my family in Dushanbe even for a few weeks we always go out and have a dinner in Al-sham at least once during my arrival. The atmosphere is great, as well as the food. Especially the kebabs and middle eastern salads. Hummus with the warm bread is unforgettable. I highly recommend this place.

Fantastic food, great service at this lovely restaurant in a leafy street of Dushanbe. The staff were attentive, their English was not good, but they were trying very hard to please and didn't let this stop them from assisting me. It was a little strange, as I was the only woman in the restaurant, but this did not create an uncomfortable atmosphere and the waiters treated me very well. I had the Chicken Beirut and it was great!

The Lebanese cuisine is well known for some of the best Middle-East food. And they can be found all over the world. Even in Dushanbe. This Lebanese restaurant is located in the centre in a relatively quiet street, next to a park. Sitting outside with a small group of people in your own semi-enclosed area is very nice. I have eaten here 3 times or so and have never been disappointed. Food and service are very good. However, the wine I had was expensive and not good.

We had truly great food for dinner. Everything was very fresh, service was excellent and prompt. We tried humus, fatush salad, eggplant salad as well as a variety of meats, with lamb deserving special recommendation. Prices are very reasonable. Did not try any wine, but the beer selection was good, only critiqu was the lack of draft beer. The restaurant itself is nothing special but don't let that hold you back, the food and service fully compensated for it.
