We have been 2 this place a couple of times where the mezzas they provide are just awsome.. Starting from Tabouleh, Ma2ane2 "sausages", fried cheese rolls, chikken wings with lemon and butter, and many more which I cant remember. Go there and see for yourself. I think management needs to train staff on courtesy and etiquettes and ways of greeting walking in customers. Other than that, a good experience.

Loved the entire experience! The food was impeccable, the interior is beautiful and super relaxing to chill with friends and the staff were super friendly and very helpful. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who is on the hunt for great arabic food. I'm super excited that they will also be opening up a branch in Downtown Dubai this November - will drop by there much more regularly!

A fantastic place to dine with friends and family. I heard many people talk about it and friends recommended that I should go there. Was definitely worth the trip! Every dish served is better than the next and you can actually feel your taste buds savoring every single moment. it's always packed with friendly faces! The ambience and décor make you feel at ease and almost as if you were invited to a Lebanese family home in Beirut. The staff were very friendly and food gets served at a perfect timing. I'd certainly recommend this to anyone looking for an excellent dining experience at a superb value!

I'm sorry to say that we had a pathetic experience in your restaurant for iftar today...possibly one of the worst experience of customer service and lack of basic courtesy...mid way through our iftar your waiters came over a took a table from us (8 of us on 3 small tables) while another set went on piling dishes on top of an already crowded one....it took me to the point of complaint and another 10 minutes of waiting to see this issue being sorted out... and all of this drama was happening in the first 20 minutes of iftaar...i would have expected a restaurant of your caliber to employ people who understand the basics...post this incident, i experienced a clear difference in treating customers based on their ethnic/national/cultural background...while a certain set of customers were being asked..the rest of the customers were ignored..dishes being removed from the table without being asked...the food especially the mix grill was served cold and rubbery...the overall attitude of the staff was so lackadaisical that i didnt even bother complaining further..btw i asked for the manager and am still waiting....anyways i dont think i feel the need to elaborate on this any further...

A great new addition to Dubai's dining experiences "Leila Restaurant" from Beirut now at Mirdif City Center. Some friends told me to go and try it knowing Leila from Beirut. A nice modern restaurant right in the hart of the mall. The team obviously is still a bit new easily getting caught up chitting and chatting with each other rather than a guest waiting for a table. Their food is great, can't judge if it is as good as in Beirut as I didn't try it there yet but compared to other Lebanese Restaurants it is excellent value for money.
Again the Service could be better, English language is obviously not everyones thing here. But overall it was a really nice experience and I'll sure go back soon.
