This place is very cute for dinner. Our server was very accommodating with wine. When asked about the Rose by the glass she gave us a tasting of both. Hummus, fattoush salad, falafel and halloumi were all good.

When you have a hankering for middle eastern food, this is your place. Absolutely delicious starters and main dishes. The atmosphere is small and cozy, within walking distance to the Foreign Correspondence club but tucked away on its own.

This is excellent Lebanese for those looking for a break from Chinese/Asian food in Hong Kong. The atmosphere is very "feel good" and the staff are friendly and helpful. To get the best out of this restaurant I suggest diners opt for the set menu. I can't remember how many dishes there were but all were reasonable size and running... More

Really impressed with the food especially the Fatoush Salad... Very nicely balanced and authentic! Will definitely be back. Kafta was great and not fatty, Sujuk was fantastic and the service was fast and friendly. My new favorite middle eastern restaurant in HK. Nice quiet location too, just a short walk from LKF.

Excellent food, and a nice ambience/location. Somewhat away from the mad rush of Hong Kong. The only surprise was a couple of uninvited cockroaches wandering around...dealt with, and did not detract from the rest of the evening but there were a couple of shrieks from the ladies. We'd return though, because overall it was a very pleasant evening.

A great break from the madness of the city. Quiet, cozy, inexpensive and real Middle East delicacies. I loved it

It is difficult to find good Lebanese restaurants in Asia in general. But this one is owned by Lebanese and the cook is one as is the waiter. As a consequence, food tastes typical, with the right ingredients and right taste. Shisha is great, service needs some pushing but one gets there ultimately. They have a lounge side (where food...

I have been to most of the mid eastern restaurants in Hong Kong and this one the best . Food is so delicious and flavours are authentic. I loved how tender the meat was and the hummus was heavenly rich. The atmosphere is peaceful and pleasant away from the crowd of the main street in Lan Kwai Fong. Annexed to... More

It was our first time to try lebanese food. We went there on weekend and we made a reservation as advised because the place opens only for dinner so it's full most of the days. Located in a quiet corner within a walking distance from LKF, the restaurant is nicely decorated, cozy with warm atmosphere. The staff were very helpful... More

Was there with some friends , chill atmosphere , cosy, relaxed music , accurate and friendly service, best traditional shisha in Hong Kong. Food is great value for money and tasty and they offer a nice range of wines from unusual locations and lovely cocktails. I personally recommend the marocan mint tea. Hidden above LKF they provide a nice evening... More

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
