We went there for a business dinner and Man!!, the food didn't stop coming. By the time we were done with 27 dishes/mezzes, we were completely done and the grill food had not even come. The fact is that each & every thing that I tasted here was mind blowing. Definitely, one of the best restaurants in Beirut.

An enormous and magnificent array of dishes, that seemingly never end. Not long after you sit the first dish arrives, then it is a never ending convoy of food. I did not see a menu, but if you look on the website, it is clear that it is a set lunch with something in the region of 30 dishes. At $40 per head it was not for those on a budget, but a great meal nevertheless. The most distressing aspect is the scale of the waste that is incurred, even when there were five people at our table. Not a place seemingly to go on your own, as I doubt any individual could make even the smallest dent in the food supplied.

Even though the restaurant is somehow expensive but their food is the best Lebanese food I have ever tasted, I love the twist they do with their platters , the service is super great and their shisha is also good. I simply love this restaurant.

Although it is quite popular, I only went to Em Sherif once. Just like all fancy lebanese restaurants, I thought I was going to eat regular local food for a pretty expensive rate. But I was positively surprised when the food was served. They are extremely generous and I can assure you that you will not be able to get up easily when you're done! Other than that, not only do they serve everything you can think of, but it is simply delicious! I loved it and I would definetly go back on special occasions with friends or family! One of the best lebanese food I have ever had!
