I had a lovely time dining here with my friends. The foods are really great. If you are looking for a Lebanese restaurant, then you should definitely try this place. The owner was lovely and the staffs are cheery and helpful. Keep it up guys.

The environment is nice, and we were enthusiastic after eating the nice lebanese starters. However the main dishes were extremely disappointing. We had a chicken burger which did not taste well at all, and full of mayonnaise,and a kebab tandoori which was not good either....More
