We went for an evening meal with family. Service doesn't start until 9pm which for me being english was very late. The reataurant is absolutely beautiful and cannot be faulted. The room is magnificent and all the cutlery is silver as are the service settings and also the serving dishes. Service was excellent. Food was fantastic so delicious but just too too much it was heartbreaking to see how much was left. The main course of meat and chicken remained untouched as we were all just too full. They should reduce the size of the portions and also the number of dishes.

We were recommended this place by a friend, and were told 'make sure you don't eat the whole day', and they were right.
The food is endless, and tasty. Great atmosphere, very relaxing and they do not rush you. Good opportunity to try so many varieties of Lebanese mezzes.

This was not my first time at Em Sherif and I was happy to see that the quality of food and service haven't changed. It is a great place for groups or lets' say it is best not to go there as a couple. The selection of dishes is amazing and the atmosphere is wonderful. This time I invited a big group of friends and the staff made my event very successful.

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.
