Really good food and atmosphere for our team dinner. Waiters were so attentive (not always the case in Lebanon). Every dish was better than previous one. Live entertainment is also a plus. This is my go to place when in a big group craving Lebanese food.

They imposed the fixed price menu and it was too much food for each as we were planning to eat a la carte but they explained that a la carte is till 7 which is a polite way of saying we want you to pay more for dinner because before 7 is not dinner time .

Absolutely incredible gaff! Impeccably decorated and the staff were super attentive. More importantly the food was everything you hoped and dreamed it would be. We lost count of the number of dishes that came out, and everyone was amazingly constructed and delicious. Several courses later - the tide of food eventually stopped and a couple of music legends took the... More

We went to this restaurant as we were told it was great, traditional Lebanese food. It was! We spent several hours here. The food kept coming and coming. It was a late lunch and there was no need for another meal that day. The food was very tasty and definitely was traditional Lebanese. The service was good--several waiters ready for... More
