Absolutely perfect! Fresh food perfectly prepared. Definitely need a booking. We were lucky! One of the best meals I've had in Europe!

Simply the best lebanese food in Brussels and in Belgium ! Super service. Go for the "mezze" and you won't be disapointed. I'll come back again and again <3

Lovely atmosphere and beautiful decor. Lovely buzzy ambiance. Confusing menu - as handed one that had different prices to the other but was offered a mezze for one for €20. Not cheap but lots of food. Nice service. The food did take a while but it was worth the wait and the place was very busy. I've visited Lebanon and... More

I want to give this place 4* because the food was good, but a waiter at the start completely ruined my evening that I could not fully enjoy the meal nor the company. I see that others have complained about the service and I'm surprised they have not done anything about it. Waiting for the rest of my party to... More

Had dinner here with a business associate and we loved each dish we ordered: salad, lamb "steak tartare" and the mixed skewers. Would have been even better if there was a bit of guidance on the menu to help you choose the main course. For instance, it was not 100% clear to us that the main dish was only the... More

I am a regular at this restaurant and can wholeheartedly recommend it. If some people thought service was slow, it might have been when the restaurant was completely full - to the last table- which happens very often. It is centrally located, and it is great for both business and private occassions. Be sure to taste their humous!

I thought to try it despite some negative comments I read here. I ordered a kuftah which was poorly grilled, tasteless, very dry and certainly not worth the 14 euros. The staff were kind and easy but I find the chef to have done a horrible job. Certainly it does not respresent the great Lebanse kitchen.

Unbelievable that in modern times, in a capital city you can find such ill mannered people working as you can in this place. I should have read the previous rating. A woman and a male server who could not sort out seating availability between them and as a result turned on the customer stating that if I did not like... More
