The place to be seen for sure, this place is incredibly busy and deservedly so as the food is incredible.
I can’t tell you the names of the dishes we ate as I didn’t order, all I can say is that every dish was bursting with flavour and really well presented.
The lamb dish, served in a cream sauce, was so tender, the raw beef dish was mouth watering.....
The dessert was yummy - a sort of vanilla ice cream covered in a milky sort of candy floss which probably sounds gross but you have to try it, it’s very moorish and I had to stop myself from scoffing it all.
Fabulous restaurant, fabulous food, can’t wait to return.

A typical Lebanese lunch. A set menu where you get a large variety of salads, cold & hot mezzah & starters . Main course is a mixed grill of shrimp, kofta & chicken & a good variety of desserts too . With good Lebanese wine. Service is good . Average of $65 per person you are full with tasty delicious food.

We went at night with friends and it wasn’t the first time and it won’t be the last
Food is delicious and abondant
The only downfall is that you can only order a set menu and even if everything is delicious there is so much that you can’t taste it all Too much waste

Its a very nice location serving tasty lebanese dishes and one of the yummiest middle eastern desserts in the country. Formula price is okey. To be fair it shall
include drinks with it.

Waiter was a bit ackward opening water bottles on the table non stop without asking and then charging all of them on the bill and extremely expensive price/bottle which really costs less than a dollar outside.

It is a two floor restaurant. We sat upstairs. Because it is fully booked downstairs. Upstair saloon was also nice. But when I go next time I prefer to sit downstairs. Food is the best I ever had for a long time. You don’t choose anything from the menu. They bring everything to the middle. Service is very very good. I totally recomend this one. Must try.
