“Biggest but not the Best Lebanese”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

This place gets mixed reviews. It is a big place, has a big menu, and big prices to go with it. it is quite popular so a nice place to see and be seen, but I have had better Lebanese food in Panama. I have also gotten sick 2 out of the last 3 times eating here. Don´t know what it is...but just doesnt set well with me. From now on, may just go there for drinks and people watching.

“Wonderful as always - must eat here!!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Beirut is a pleasure to visit. I have been there 20 times in last 2 years , I will continue to go there. The food is authentic and yummy. We love the Babaganouj, Hummus, Kibbe, Shish Taouk (chicken on skewers), Tabouleh , Fatouch, Labneh, Kafta Nyaye (raw meat in spices).
Weekends evening is a pleasure because of wonderful Belly Dance performances. My kids love watching them and even dance with the performers. It is very tastefully presented.
The fresh Arabic bread - Pita , baked by them is sooooo wonderful to eat, it comes steaming hot and tastes amazing with the lebanese dips and meats.
The most soothing part is teaming cups of mnt tea at the end of the meal - of course you can indulge in baklava sweets if you are not weight watching.
Good Job Bilal - keep it up !!
