It was basically chicken, lamb or been kebabs. Nothing out of this world but ok. Had a belly dancer which was entertaining.

Food was great and authentic. Starters were large and we should have shared one instead of ordering one each. The main meal was lovely, chicken and lamb kebabs but there was no room for dessert. We ordered coffee and brandy to finish the meal and it was the largest brandy I've ever been served- and one of the best! The... More

An elegant restaurant based on those you find in Lebanon - large, airy, clean with ample sized tables. They even offer a very good Belly Dancer. The food is, as a previous reviewer states, adapted to the country in which you are dining, but, as far as Lebanese dishes go, these were very acceptable. We had a delicious meze meal,... More

Food was very good but found that they are bit slow to take your order, and the starters seem slow to arrive. But all the food that we ordered was tasty enough. The house red wine was good also.

What a gem of a place. Beautiful interior and exterior. Obviously the owners have an eye for taste, which brings me to the food. Just out of this world. Dishes to die for and very reasonably priced. I have paid double in other restaurants for this quality. And a belly dancer comes to your table on Saturdays so I,m told.... More

We ate here several times in late September and early October. The food was really delicious, even the tabbouleh was fantastic. The wine was very good quality. Its a little more expensive than most other restaurants in same the area but the food, the service and surroundings are the best in the area.

The restaurants exterior and interior is beautiful and draws you in, however that's as good as it gets unfortunately. The waiters were slow, my starter was so overpowered with Parsley I couldn't eat it. I ordered Salmon for the main course and we must have waited about 40 mins and when it came it was so basic and could have... More

Very big restaurant,pleasant surroundings, easy parking which always helps, the food was really fresh & tasty. We had a variety of starters & all tasted good, followed by a main course & I had chicken tavouk which was very good. Service was excellent & there was 8 of us. Would go back again soon
