The diminished grandeur of the room, the peeling plaster, cracked murano chandelier and the strains of a Fairouz melody gives an idea of the charming atmosphere this restaurant provides. Em Sherif is a portal to the past, to the glory days of Beirut. A time reminisced about by most Lebanese today.

The full breadth of Lebanese and regional dishes with some previously unfamiliar specialities leant a positive twist to the familiar hallmarks of this rich cuisine.

The Middle Eastern reputation for unparalleled hospitality is truly surpassed with this $65 USD ahead set menu. Dining with a large group, it was impossible to finish the food!

The friendly staff and kitchen made allowances for people on my table who had allergies, food intolerances or special dietary requirements. This only added to the experience we had!

The age old adage that you “eat with your eyes” is true for Em Sherif. Tens of dishes fill the table at all times and each course brings out new ingredients, flavours and recipes.

The staff are very professional, well-trained and attentive. Each time your plate is empty, it is filled with yet another treat by one of the many staff circling the room with platters of appetisers.

The restaurant is situated in the Achrafieh neighbourhood which is renowned for its rich architecture, bustle and vibrant atmosphere.

A true Beiruti culinary event and landmark in authentic oriental food!
