Had lunch at Em sherif with my wife, kids and friends. The place offers a set menu of dishes that consist of roughly 25+ different appetizers, grilled meats and desserts for a fixed price. The dishes were all well crafted and each offered a distinct taste. You can completely feel the amount of care put in each dish and ingredient. Pace yourself, as dishes of food keep coming and coming, and unless you eat at a "Lebanese style" leasurely pace you wont be able to make it through this sumptuous meal. The service was excellent as well.

An amazing trip through Lebanese traditional mezze and cuisine. A one of its kind experience from the restaurant setting to the choice of plates,very stylish, to the flavourful rich food and exquisite desserts the journey is well worth it. Should it be for lunch or dinner make sure there is enough room in your stomach.they have a set menu followed by a traditional home cuisine plat du jour, so you just sit and let yourself go. Every single dish you taste is very well prepared and tasteful.the service is good.and for dinner you can enjoy traditional Arabic music on oud. I highly recommend it and will sure come again !

If you are lucky enough to book a table and try the Oriental magical taste of Em Sherif then you will would've visited new places and new eras of the Orient. The menu ks very special and outstanding. Quality and quantity of food, customer service, location, ambience, table designs and spacing of customers, is simply outstanding. The moment you walk in, you become a VIP as a customer. I simply thank the managers, staff, snd chef for this unique experience.
