Having read a number of other reviews.I decided to try this for lunch. If "better than averge" or "pretty good" was an option, that's how I'd descriptive this restaurant. The dining room is attractive and the service was pleasant. This is not cheap for lunch - a kafta wrap with tabouli & rice was $8.50. Many other entrees were approximately the same price.

The wrap was ok, with relatively little lamb that was supposed to be the feature of the wrap.

The restaurant is located on a street with many chain restaurants. This one is family owned, and I can see how it stands out in this community.

But I think there are several restaurants just north, in St. Paul, that are mediterranean & serve tastier food, at equal or lower prices. Examples: Shish & Khyber Pass, both on Grand Avenue, Babani in downtown St. Paul. But Beiruit is distinctive among the many chain restaurants.

This place was recommended to me by first generation Lebanese family. I've had lots of middle eastern food in the Twin Cities and always try the falafel. This is the best! Also great baklava: buttery, super nutty and not overly sweet from honey. Just right! Great service too.

Beirut Restaurant is my absolute favorite restaurant for authentic Lebanese cuisine. My family goes there, not just for special occasions, but anytime we want meals prepared exactly like my Lebanese grandmother made them.

The atmosphere is pleasant and the service is excellent. The food, however, is amazingly good. We prefer their Meza platter, which includes selections from their menu.. Being Lebanese, I prefer their kibbe neyyi (raw lamb mixed with spices and served with raw onions and tomatoes.) The baked kibbe is excellent as well, as is their stuffed cabbage and stuffed grapeleaves. Actually, all of their meals are superb.

You will not be disappointed.

Check out the Mezza with Arak. Incredible variety, hearty portions, great service. Surprised to see how many families with kids. Lamb was really really good - tender and full of flavor.

I have been dining here for about 20 years. Kabobs, rice, shawirma (like gyro meat) and falafel that are out of this world! The garlic house salad would make even a salad hater eat salad. Fun on Friday nights due to live entertainment - Belly Dancer. The rice is so buttery and to die for! A must try if you love garlic
