“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

Great restaurant tucked away in the Suburbs away from the busy main roads. It is housed in a lovely period house. The food was very good and authentic Lebanese. Definitely worth a visit.

“Very good but over-rated and over priced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

Great ambiance, and great service.
The food is certainly above-average, but certainly not the
best Lebanese food I have had. Moreover it is really over-priced,
The drinks (we essentially had lemonade with mint --two glasses
costing about $11) were ridiculously priced.
Also the non-smoking section (which is where we were) is not immune
from the smoke of the argeilas/hookas + cigarettes as there are big open
doors between the smoking and non-smoking sections.
The free fruit and arabic coffee after food is a nice touch!
BUt with a family going for dinner, expect to shell out "big bucks.." Also
unless arranged in advance, not a lot of taxis around on this street and one
may need to walk a bit to the main street to catch a cab to the hotel.

“Worst Service, Great Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

The family went to fakhr el-din for lunch on easter day.

The seating was overcrowded which you would expect because its easter.

The food is always great and tasty.

But it was the worst service i've had in years of visits to this place.

The waiter drops the bread on my back, the waiters also decide to interrupt private conversations in order to ask how the food is. It takes long to fins some one to get you your drink. Absolute mess.

I would definitely not go there during public holidays again.
