I have been at that place twice, once for a business meal and the other with friends. It's a very nice place for dinner, with a great variety of pure Lebanese cuisine appetizers and main courses. Although not cheap, it's recommended for it's quility, service and the place.

I think the restaurant owners fulfilled the responsibility of having the generosity of " Beirutis", as its name means ( Karam Beirut).
The location in Tahlia street and the setting of the restaurant is great. I like that their ceiling is high because it gives a much ventilating feeling ( on contrary to other restaurants in Riyadh where you feel like you are eating in a prison like lunchroom).
Yes, it gives a sense of eating back home, of coarse with out the view of the sea or the mountain.

But overall, the service is quick and friendly.
They serve lebanese water Tannourine, which gives a taste of home.

Their mezzeh from tabbouleh, stuffed grape leaves, spiced potato, eggplant and chick peas mtabbal ..and all mixed grill are delicious ...

I went there twice in 9 months and will def. go back again...as its a def. place to visit everytime I want to taste something from home, Beirut :)

This place is located at a famous vivid street in Riyadh city. It opens from 12:30 p.m till 11 p.m. and it is the place you should go to when you are looking for a well made lebanese food. Once you're in you will be welcomed with a nice smile of the waiters who are professional and well knowledge about the food they are serving. Everything inside is well taken care of, the seats, the tables, linens are all clean and well organized. You wont be waiting for too long before your food is served and the journey of indulging your sense with great taste will start. They are using a good quality ingredients and meet together will a fine chef which create a fine taste that you will never forget.
Prices are reasonable when you compare it to the quality of food served and the level of service so i do not consider it as expensive.I personally would really recommend this place for a fine dinner experience. But i did not like the idea of having the bar inside the hall as the mixer was too noisy.
The only problem i have noticed is that finding a parking is really hard especially at peak time.
I hope you guys enjoy your experience there and tell all of us what you think about this nice restaurant.

For Lebanese cuisine, this restaurant is superb. It is a typical Lebanese restaurant with a good selection of meza and a very tasty mixed grill. The hummus is especially good, the bread delicious, the salads fresh, the mixed grill extremely tasty. And all of this in a very tasteful décor with great service with a relaxed ambiance. The only disappointments are the desserts - I have tasted better - and perhaps the Kibbah .... but if you like Lebanese cusine - this is a definite place to visit.
