I am a bit biased as I have frequented the shk zayed restaurant for over 10 years. This is definitely one of my favourite lebanese restaurants in the world and that is why the 5 star, even when the service can be patchy at times.

This Lebanese restaurant serves excellent traditional dishes. Worth noting is that all vegetables are super fresh and everything is made same day. Try the falafels, probably the best I have ever had. There are so many people employed that you certainly get the attention you need and they are well organized. Highly recommended!

Staff are welcoming and there is a good choice of well cooked, tasty food. Not the cheapest of restaurants though.

This restaurant is nice for eating Lebanese food, specially grills. Since my hotel was in walking distance, decided to try out. The mixed grill was nice, but maybe a bit overpriced.
