Description: This is a wonderful little restaurant ideal fro brunch or a wonderfully varied lunch. Souk el Tayeb started as a farmers market in 2004, and now offers a range of delicious regional Lebanese dishes and desserts, as well as preserves, jams and sweets that can be bought in the restaurant. The concept is to offer fresh, organic food, with dishes changing weekly, so that one can savour different dishes from around Lebanon. Brunch is offered on Saturday, and during the week a wonderful lunch buffet is offered at a set price, including main courses, appetizers and salads, as well as desserts.The food is nothing short of delicious and the service impeccable and very friendly. The space is light and laid back, with a mixed crowd of lunching ladies, young professionals and some business men, all seamlessly blending in together. There is also a little outside space with a couple of tables.

Visited Tawlet on Saturday 8th June for lunch. The Waiters were extremely helpful even giving a friends taxi drive directions to the rest. The food was amazing and so fresh with amazing flavours. Being a buffet style you can eat as much or as little as you want. Leave room for dessert. Had a great strawberry sponge cake. Will definitely be back. The website doesn't mention it but reservations are needed. They appear to have two sittings on a Saturday. One at 12pm and one at 2pm. If walking from Hamra is a long walk.

Great food, great people, and reasonable pricing! It is also really nice that Tawlet is also composting and conscious of their impact on the environment. This is rare in Lebanon

Tawlet is a lovely restaurant set in the Ashrafieh neighborhood, which is leafy and relaxed, resembling a coastal European city. The restaurant is airy and bright. There is a buffet on offer at lunch, with a total of eight to ten dishes, most vegetarian. The food is fresh and delicious. There are various desserts on offer as well as fruit. The house made lemonade was highly refreshing. This restaurant is known for serving fresh, homemade Lebanese fare. Mezze is not on offer, rather salads, vegetable stews, rice and pasta dishes are. The price point is @ US $30/person for the buffer and half that for the plat du jour. Try this place for a different spin on Lebanese in order to grasp a fuller understanding of Lebanese cuisine.
