“The True Lebanese Cuisine”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Located in the center of Beirut, and else where across Lebanon, Leila demonstrates the taste and the culture of the Lebanese Cuisine. The best "mashewe" (chicken) is served with he best potato you could taste. If you are still skeptical I encourage you to come and have a taste at Leila's and believe me you will not regret it.

“Good lebanese with a very creative twist”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Usually I am not into creativity when it comes to lebanese food. I personally prefer the traditional lebanese food. At Leila however they know when to be creative and when to remain traditional keeping untouched the traditional great lebanese dishes (hommos, baba ghannouj..) and adding a twist of excellence to other items such as desserts and other less common dishes. Leila's food end up being great especially when it comes to Baba ghannouj, chich tawouk and a special mention to their dessert which are out of this world (Ghazal beirut, mamaoul jebneh and all others)
