“Rich experience for lebanese food within a budget”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2014

Great taste of lebanese food with cheap prices... Located in hamra area, each shop specialized in something.. If you go for a Snack or a meal even the take away, you won't regret at all.. Clean, fresh and warm food...
Don't forget to try the ice cream as well...
It's a rich experience for lebanese food within a budget.. Must go for a bite

“The Best / Cheapest option for budget dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014

If you wanna eat good quality food at low prices, Barbar is your place. Located in the famous street of Hamra, its probably the most famous snack in Lebanon. It serves fast food and personally i love his lemonade a lot, a must try. Also, the variety of fast food sandwiches and dishes are many. When you are in Beirut, give it a try and you want regret it. Promise ........

“Super variety”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

Barbar in Hamra street has 4 outlets (Falafel, Snacks, Pastry, Shawerma, and juices).

I couldn't but try them all. I enjoyed their falafel, shawerma chicken, Lebanese sausages, and finally their fun juices and non-alcoholic cocktails (Why fun? The juices names are after famous people as Napoleon, Castro and many others).

I highly recommend it for Lebanese and middle Eastern sandwiches and fast food cuisine.

Simple and direct to the point :)

“A Lebanese food fan thinks he found the one”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

Was it love from the 1st meal? I dunno.. Folks I had two different dishes the two times I dined at that restaurant.
Excellent food? Check
Diversified menu? Check
Healthy options? Check
Reasonable prices? Check Check Check

And the people are friendly and service was amazing. What more could a person ask for? The only downside is how loud and crowded this place can be. Its very popular and frequently visited by students, locals, tourists...etc because of the value that you get versus the quality of food.
