“Good Lebanese in San José”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Sash is a great spot for Lebanese food in San José. It is located in Pavas, which is a bit out of the loop if you are here for tourism, but pretty close to Downtown.

The menú has all the classic standards (meze and kebab) done very well, but we also enjoy many authentic specialty items that other restaurants in San José don´t offer.

All of the waiters are excellent, very friendly and willing to go above and beyond to make sure that everyone enjoys themselves.

They have a bar/ lounge area that opens in the evenings that looks like it would be really great for parties or special events.

My husband and I love going to Sash. We don't even have to look at the Menu because we know it by heart! Meat, grilled vegetables, delicious Humus.... and fantastic service!

“Great authentic food -perfect for sharing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

The food is excellent Lebanese in Costa Rica --- which is hard to find in CR. Great dishes to share with friends and family. The flavors, ingredients and combinations are well thought out. I love their hummus, taboule, and grilled eggplant and zuchini. Highly recommend the "Lebanese Mesa Vegetariana" -- great to share for 2 people. Very filling. The server, Mario, is wonderful- very nice and attentive and the owners are always on site checking to make sure everything is to your liking. Great asset to Rohrmoser/Pavas close to Plaza Major.

“I love the atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

When you walk in you definitely get a great feeling. The decor is really nice and soothing. Transporting you. We ordered bocas. The baba ghanoush was amazing. I loved the different things served on top. The bread they serve with everything is hot and delicious. And you have to tell them to stop bringing it. I didn't care for the falafel and the hummus needed a little salt and pepper. However these are minor things. I feel when considering this place you should consider the entire package. The owner is ever present to check on you and ensure you are having a great time. The upstairs where they have parties on the weekends is super cool. Check it out for yourself as they are definitely worth a try. I love this type of food, so we will be back. Thanks for a great evening.
