This is a Lebanese restaurant with a touch of modernity over typical-ity. Amazing dishes with the kebabs at the end really impressing. If you enjoy Lebanese food, when in Beirut, this is an excellent choice.

Unfortunately yes. I doubt they will accept without reservation & preferably a week in advance if you have certain date in your mind. Sometimes you may need to do your reservation more than one week in advance.
