“Authentic food in a very nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2014

We needed to get out of the heat and humidity of Charleston so we ducked into this place for a small bite. We ordered 3 appetizers for the 2 of us and left content. The Manteh, while different from the Turkish version we were accustomed to, was delicious and flavorful. It was fried and that wasn't especially good for us. Babganoush was smokey and wonderful. It was served with fresh pits to sop up every last bit. We also enjoyed a dish of falafel. Very nice!

“Most Amazing Lebanese Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2014 via mobile

The food was the most authentic Lebanese cuisine that I have ever had. In addition, the service was perfect and the staff was well put together. The atmosphere was awesome and the staff was very accommodating. I would recommend anyone busting Charleston to come for lunch or dinner to Leyla. Don't miss out on dinning there while you're in town!

“Most attractive staff!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2014 via mobile

Great! Now that I have your attention...

I came into Leyla just to have a drink at the bar before going out. After smelling the aromas in the reasturant, I decided to order the shish tawouk with rice as a side and tabbouli. The food was so good I decided to order more for the next day. The flavors of food were different than your typical Charleston restaurant.

The staff were so friendly- definately the typical Charleston hospitality. Zach & Tino (very handsome men) were kind enough to guide me through the menu and chat with me at the bar since I was eating solo that night.

Whats great about Leyla comapared to other restaurants on a Friday night is the atmosphere. There was enough music for the upbeat atmosphere but not too loud were you get a headache or cant hear the other person.

I highly recommend Leyla!!!
