Ot’s been there for decades. You can’t miss it if you are in Hamra and you want some fine yet affordable Lebanese cuisine. Service is impecable. And deserts are amazing!

This is our first restaurant in a 5 days stay in Beirut. Good food that allows us to start appreciating the real Lebanese cuisine. Great food and great service that we will need to benchmark against future restaurants. Will come back!

Outstanding food! I’ve never had better chicken and beef skewers in my life! Well cooked, good service, even though the place looks like a diner on the high way... :-) Don’t judge this book by its cover!

Hotel I was at recommended this place - was also only 3 mins walk away. Four days in Beirut I ate here 3 times. Great range of Lebanese dishes and Cakes. Mezza Buffet is great value.
Was never that full, I don't know why as I thought it was excellent.

I have known this restaurant since i was a child. It reunited our whole family each year. Unfortunately time has change. The delivery was quick. But the fries were little bit cold and not crunchy. Yalangi plate was not tasty at all. Needed more flavor and the leaves needed to be cooked more. The greek salad was full of green pepper instead of lettuce. Not successful meals.
