Make sure not to eat at least 7-8 hours before going there. The food is 10/10, service is 10/10, it is super clean. For me this restaurant is number 1 in lebanon. It is a most try for people who likes Libanese food.

Unfortunately yes. I doubt they will accept without reservation & preferably a week in advance if you have certain date in your mind. Sometimes you may need to do your reservation more than one week in advance.
