“Saved by the company”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

At first, the sign brought to mind images of addicts in withdrawal (cultural differences – delirium tremens/DTs !) - but it was obviously a restaurant (relief). The location is as central as one can get in Beirut, on the edge of Solidere, beside The Grey. Fusion is ubiquitous and can offer great outcomes, but this proposition, while reflecting trends in broadening the offering, is let down by quality and imagination. I had chicken that lacked any flavour, looked as if it was mass produced and needed a request for toum (lebanese garlic sauce) and a glass of Ksara to give it interest. The others had what I reckon were adequate but formulaic plates. Possibly among the more disappointing. Nevertheless, I enjoyed my visit - but only because of the company.

“Good Food, Good Service”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

I've been so many times over the years and every time the food is good and the service is good. It is one of my favorite places for a quick lunch. In fact it is always full for lunch with Business men and women from nearby offices. Better to reserve if you are going for lunch during the week.

Great location, great ambience but very poor selection for strict vegetarians ... I had to make do with pasta (which I totally don't like).

“Cuisine: International?!!”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

It doesn't make a cuisine International by just having different tastes of different cuisines in the Menu.
For example:
Salade Bar: Very limited options!
Sushi: Not clear with only names on the menu and same ingredients!
etc...
And to add the cherry on the top, the waiters, whenever asked, they say its an international restaurant, you should have went to another place?! seriously??
It used to be a very good restaurant. It has THE perfect location and very nice ambiance. Maybe if the service was better, this would disregard other things. BUT service team...you really need to work on your body language and the language itself with your clients.

“Excellent location . Fresh Sashimi . Bad Quality meat .”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

The location is in the heart of the new Zeitouneh district . However , It serves sushi , but no sushi bar visible. Its hidden in the kitchen . The quality of salmon sashimi that i ordered was amazing . But when the beef escalope arrived , the taste was horrible . Tastes like expired meat , and had to return it to the waiter. Stay away from meat dishes . Go for sea food . Good quality rolls, sushi and sashimi . Place was crowded by 2.15 pm . Servise was exceptional
as you would expect in most lebanese restaurants . Salad bar available with good selection to choose from .
