“Terrible service, not worth a visit.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

Our family had a dinner at Beirut Grill on the night of July 27, we made reservation for 4 people at 8.30pm. The restaurant was not empty but certainly was not full when we came in. The server look so harassed and show us to the table. For drink, my daughter wanted a glass of water and the rest of us order cokes n juices. She was given Fiji water. Drinks were only given to us after waiting of a good 20 minutes. Other table came in before us got served glasses of water right away, not branded water. We have to try to get the server's attention to place our order. Two other tables got to order before us even though the came after us. When finally food arrived, of course order was wrong. Then we have to wait again. Meanwhile servers try their best not to meet your eyes so you cannot ask them anything. Food were mediocre, nothing to wrote home about. Falafels were burnt. My husband asked for water, the waiter fill water into his coke's glass, because there were no more glasses and she has to bring them from upstairs, whatever that means. Experience was so unpleasant it gave a very bad taste in our mouth. Servers were so harassed and made us feel that we were a mere nuisance. There is no service spirit what so ever. Definitely will not come back and definitely will not recommend it to anyone. Both my husband and I worked for prestigious 5 stars hotel in Singapore, we will definite will
not recommend Beirut Grill to our guests.

“Mediocre food, cockroaches, tissue in the food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

I am a big fan of Lebanese food so was really looking forward to this meal. The food was really disappointing. We ordered traditional dishes like Humous, baba ganoush and breads and they were all poor. The main meal continued in the same vain. Edible but nothing to write home about. Halfway through the meal a cockroach was waling up the wall behind my friend and the lady beside me was getting quite upset about it but the staff did not seem concerned. Towards the end of the dish my friend's wife found pieces of tissue in her meal and when this was pointed out to the staff it was greeted with a shrug. Not to be recommended.

“Pricey!!!!!!!!!!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

We dined here with friends on a Friday night. We were four adults. I had read reviews on this site and had also had a look at their menu online. The menu looks very impressive however there are discrepancies in price. We ordered the mixed grilled platter that comes with four types of kebabs and rice and veg. So we decided to order two of these to share between four people. Firstly everything was put on one platter and the quantities did not look anywhere near to 8 kebabs. The rice was a standard sized bowl and did not look like the quantity in the picture on the menu list and there was hardly any grilled veg worth mentioning. This looked nothing like the picture on the menu list. The price was also different to the online menu. The online menu stated the mixed grilled platter at $29 whilst the menu at the restaurant stated $39! We paid $80 for a platter that could not be justified by the contents of that platter. We asked for some pita bread and were given 2 pieces for four adults who had paid $80 for two platters. We paid $50 per pax and still went home hungry! Beware if you order the grilled platter as you definitely do not get your moneys worth. We ordered cocktails at $14 each and could not taste any alcohol in it. I have eaten at other middle eastern restaurants however Beirut is nothing special and too expensive considering there are others that give you similar tastes and flavours. Dont waste your money here!

Dear Sir,

At Beirut Grill we take customer feedback very seriously and especially coming from a Snr Reviewer like yourself. Our apologies your dining experience didn't quite turn out as what we promise. You rightly pointed out the pricing discrepancy on our website vs the printed menu at the restaurant. It has been an oversight and we have asked our Marcom to get the website updated right away.

With regards to the Qty , what we serve is in-fact the same portions that we reflect on the menu. For the mixed grill platter, only difference on weekends is the change in presentation which is catered to meet the high turnaround. Rest assured the qty remains the same. And our basket of bread does come with 2 "freshly baked" pita bread ( vs the ready-made bread served in most other outlets).

We do our every bit to offer best quality food at reasonable prices. Our Lamb is in-fact imported from best farms in New Zealand and can be compared in same quality as Wagyu for Beef. We hope that you return soon and we'd like to extend a complimentary round of drinks/desert in appreciation of your feedback.

“One of the better Arabic Food Resturant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014

We were introduced to this restaurant by a family friend who had celebrated their birthday party at the first floor wing and since then we are regular visitors to this place. This restaurant is perhaps the only one which has Indian DJ that plays until middle of the night. Though the restaurant is a bit congested , yet the food is very tasty and almost authentic in taste compared to Middle-East cusine. The best dishes are humous , pita bread and kebabs. They have a spicy grilled chicken which is mouth watering and spicy. The housewin is not too expensive and goes well with the cusine. On Friday nights there is even abelly dancing show. Food prices are reasonable.

I would recommend this restaurant as a good option in Arab street.
