No words to describe my desapointment! I use to always visit Lebanese restaurants and really....this has nothing close to it! Garlic everywhere! I Consider myself a connaisseur of this delicate and exquisite cuisine and the only thing they share is only the names of their dishes!

We just moved back from Dubai where we had the most delicious middle eastern food. So far El Khalifa has offered us the closest to heaven since we're here. We were invited to the opening of the new place they have located at "zona G", the place is really nice, music and service good. Food was delicious!!!

Thank Katriguez
