We had a great meal at this restaurant with excellent, friendly staff. We also had a belly dancer entertain us. There were families of all ages on the night we went. Highly recommend.

Amazing interior, keeping the Arabic spirit alive. Fridays and Saturdays there is a belly dance show. The food is amazing as always and good decent portions. Excellent service.

A lovely looking restauant, relaxed lighting meets opulent interior. But not in an offputting way. That word doesn't look right but you get my drift. The staff were just lovely. A little quiet midweek but it soon livened up. We started with a fatoush salad and hoummos - tayyeb! I believe thats the other way of saying delicious in lebanese.... More

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
