This restaurant is unique in several ways. For a Lebanese restaurant, a set menu is the only available option (which is a good thing since you dont have to worry about over or under ordering). An army of waiters are there to serve you (they literally never let your glass go empty). If you are sitting in the main area of the restaurant, at 10:30 p.m. a typical Lebanese band will start playing classic Arabic tunes. The atmosphere is quite unique, a must try !

Em Sherif was a total delight. We arranged a birthday dinner and booked a table on the upper level. From the moment we arrived to the restaurant, and were escorted to our table, we were looked after by an army of servers.

There is no menu to choose from. You simply relax, and are subjected to a wonderful assault on your taste buds, by an array of authentic Lebanese dishes with a twist. The presentation, taste, and imagination of the food was tantalising and delightful. You have to have a healthy appetite to sustain the great variety and number of dishes that were offered. The ambience was lovely, and the service was excellent, and professional.

The average per person per head came to around US$90, including alcohol. Good value for money, for the quality, quantity, and high standard that was offered.

I highly recommend this restaurant.
