Very nice libanese restaurant with loads of choices on the menu. Mixed grill is very nice, also plenty of choices for vegetarians (hummus, chickpea, etc) On Saturday they have bellydancers!

We want tonight with a friend who suggested it. We have always enjoyed Beirut but tonight was even better. We had the sampler with everything included such as hummus, fatouche, kibbitz, etc. The service was good and the atmosphere relaxed. I highly recommend.

This was our first experience Lebanese food. The waitress didn't speak English but we had no trouble getting her to understand that we wanted to try some native foods. Her recommendation of a sampler was a perfect introduction. There were several different types of hummus...More
