“A pleasant surprise for a place in a mall”
Reviewed March 6, 2012

So, have been here three times and the food is consistently good, which is difficult to find in Tyson's.
The shwarma is always a go-to, and the mezze are exceptional. They pour heavy for cocktails, there are a ton of options, and if you have to eat a meal in a mall, this is the best you can do. I'm actually quite impressed. Go with the lamb sausage mezze, a shwarma sandwich, fires, and a vodka tonic, and you have an awesome lunch ahead of you.
Well done.

“Authentic Lebanese with great service”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

We went on a Friday night and had great food and great service. The Tabouleh was the best I've ever had. We both had Shawarma - one chicken and one lamb/beef. They were both excellent and left us craving for more the next day. The garlic sauce ordered with the chicken was truly authentic and powerful! They even have a fairly decent wine list. This restaurant has become a family favorite.

“Very good Lebanese food”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

You have to be into the tappas thing and willing to pay large sums for small quantities. Very good food; not an outstanding value.

“Pretty authentic”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

The food is pretty authentic Lebanese food. The service is typically good. Price point is slightly above what it should be but the food is excellent quality. Have been here more times than I can count. Will definitely return. Great place for a group happy hour or group dinner.

“Yum.”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

Good Mediterranean food, fancy dining room. There is something for everyone with small plates, big entrées, veg, meat, etc. which makes it good for business lunches and dinners. They'll do delivery too through Grub Hub for in-office lunches. I always get the veggie mezza.
