Ate here on a Sunday evening. Lemonade missed with mint leaves was refreshing. Main entrée I got the shrimp kabob with Jumbo shrimp, Lebanese rice pilaf, roasted vegetables, eggplant pomegranate chutney and grilled lemon. A nice helping and was full afterwards.

Food was very close to the real Lebanese food. Nice dishes, well put, excellent baba ganoush and Tabouleh. A must if you love middle-Eastern gastronomy.
