This restaurant had a fun vibe and I loved that we had to sit on cushions on the floor (although its probably not for everyone). There is a large selection of food to choose from, and most meals are designed to be shared. The garlic bread was crispy and delicious. We also ordered a meat platter to share and that... More

We popped in on recommendation from a friend. We were seated straight away and we had the choice of traditional Lebanese cushion set up or normal table. We took a table near the bar. We had the "Lady Fingers" to start and they were fresh and tasty. They are kind of like a small sausage roll with fresh filo pastry... More

I was expecting something different with the menu but the food was decidedly average and totally unimaginative. Nothing particularly wrong with it except the flat bread was very tough and I think that it would be more enjoyable eating a piece of cardboard. The big problem was the standard of service. We visited on a Monday evening when the restaurant... More

Excellent Food, service and ambience.. Entrée was very nice and appetizing especially the baba ganouch and tabouli were great...The service was also top notch with a smile. Overall would definitely recommend it... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our meal. We ordered the feast and found all the food tasty and there was plenty of it. The cinnamon tea was a wonderful end to a delicious meal.

We have been many times to Hannibals but never again, we had a 6 course banquet, the falafel tasted like it was out of a packet and no tabouli was served. The ladies fingers were not edible, we went home hungry, disgusting

We got the banquet and it was so stingy, we had to fill up on bread and order more dishes (never left hungry from a banquet normally!!) Food took sooo long and was not that great and expensive. The service was really poor. Can't believe this place has a 4 star rating. Go elsewhere for yummy Lebanese food.

Held our hens night at Hannibal, small old house changed into a restaurant. Food served on our buffet were nothing different to a take away food except more expensive and on a plate. The staff doesn't have product knowledge and don't understand customers well. Tho they are nice and attentive they lack the communication skills to provide what the customers... More
