The food is absolutely fantastic. The flavors so fresh and tasty that it was like having a party in your mouth!
The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable of their menu. Service was outstanding. They go out of their way to please the customer.
They have a good variety of fine wines.
Nothing disappointing about this gem of a restaurant. Will go as often as possible!

Thank Paul E

Favorite restaurant for hummus and icecream!!! I had the pistachio icecream it's delicious with a drizzle of honey and strawberry and kiwi fruit as garnish.
For dinner I had the chicken Shaw Erma which is delicious with garlic paste!!! If in Charleston please try Lela ' s you won't be disappointed.

Visiting from Los Angeles where ethnic food is abundant therefore was not expecting the quality of good we got at Leyla's. Quality of ingredients was fantastic and Leyla and her staff made us feel right at home. So good we went twice.

Leyla's is the best place to go for a wide range of Lebanese cuisine. Before the restaurant opened, Charleston really lacked a varity of authentic middle eastern food in general. Of course you could go to a more "fast-food" style chain to get acceptable gyros or falafel, but sink your teeth in a dish at Leyla's and just taste the difference. I'm so happy to have found a place that makes such amazing hummos--I garauntee it's a thousand times better than the store bought stuff you buy at Harris Teeter. I suggest the spicy hummos if your ready for a bit of a kick. The first time I ate there for dinner was with my mother on her birthday. We tried the bahklava and ice-cream and I've been dreaming about that creamy dessert ever since. Best part? They made it in house!

10/10, I'll see you there.
