My wife and I recently visited Charleston for a long weekend. We were looking for something different than southern cuisine. We found Leyla located in the heart of the city. This is a family owned slightly upscale restaurant. The food was incredible, the ambient was fantastic, and the service was wonderful. We topped it off with their pistachio ice cream, one of my favorites. Would definitely come back, and highly recommend.

A group of us enjoy Friday nights at the great restaurants in Charleston. But after many years and may places we discovered we had missed Leyla's. Tonight was our first visit but won't be our last. For appetizers we enjoyed falafel, grape leaves, spinach pie, & Greek salad. All were excellent. Entrees were combination plate of beef, chicken and lamb, seared salmon,& beef shawarma. All were excellent. Ambiance was warm and serving staff very attentive. Manager Andrew was very engaging and quite helpful! We're planning to return.

For those who are lovers of middle eastern food (healthy, delicious, balanced) Leyla's is a real treat. We ordered the Royal Set dinner because we couldn't decide what to order. Each dish, on its own takes a long time to prepare so we were floored by the range and abundance of the offerings. Many appetizers, delicious main courses (the filet of beef with garlic sauce is a real treat) and the ending of the baklava was amazing. I decided to top off my experience with a cup of Lebanese coffee with cardamon. Delish! Great service and wonderful management.

What an outstanding meal! So many choices too. We decided on the warm lentil/avocado salad and veggie sampler plate. Every bite was delicious and so very fresh! The owner came out and visited with us too and we learned a lot about how much goes into every detail of the creations at Layla's. Can't wait to go back!

My wife and I had a date night reservation and we were not disappointed. The appetizers were delicious and the meal was excellent. The dessert was mouth watering and drinks were good. It's pricey but well worth the money! If you want Middle Eastern great food and don't mind paying for it, this place is a MUST!
