We visited this small restaurant on our first night in Long Beach. The staff were really friendly and it had a nice atmosphere. The lamb, beef or chicken skewers were delicious, as across our Group we tried all of these. Whilst the meat was awesome,...the selection of food to have with it was limited and the massive mound of rice just seemed a bit bland, some more choice or flavouring alongside the meat would be nice. That said I would certainly go againMore

Wonderful neighborhood Lebanese/Mediterranean restaurant. My favorites include the vegetarian combo, Baba Ghanouj chicken, the "monk" appetizer (eggplant), and the other appetizers. Bring your own wine, free corkage fee. Friendly owner and staff. We walk to the restaurant for our wedding anniversary and most of the...times, my birthday!More

The food is delicious, Good spot for an evening with friends as quiet and nice for conversation. This last visit the service was not the level of previous visits.

We always enjoy the Mediterranean/Lebanese food here. It is a small neighborhood place with fresh food. Their signature baba ghanouj and hummus are quite good, and I happen to like the garlic sauce served with some of the chicken dishes. (just don't have it if...you plan on being in close contact with or breathing on others. Spouse's favorite is the vegetarian plate. Street parking, a few spaces in rear.More

I ordered the fried cauliflower and a chicken tawok sandwich. I got a plate instead of the sandwich which was fine but it seemed short on chicken. Plenty of rice though. Fried cauliflower was tasty as well Can't complain about getting the plate because it...was a little more expensive then the sandwich. They also give you plenty of pita bread. I will for sure eat here again next time I want some Lebanonese.More

I am sadden to have to write this review since I've been having group dinners at this restaurant for five years but my last group dinner ended on a sour note! The service was excellent so thank you so much Marianna and crew. The food...was just okay this time. Not as good as it had been in the past or at the menu planning dinner. I highly advise you NOT TO GO to this restaurant if you are planning to do an event here and plan to do a prix fixe menu. The owner George agreed to do an all inclusive menu for us, as he's done numerous times in the past, so the food, tip and tax are included for one set price. At the end of the dinner we all got our checks. The owner had added tax, then the server came over and told me the tip was not included. How embarrassing it was for me since I am the coordinator. It truly felt bad for the servers also since half of the group had already left not knowing what had transpired so that meant no tip for them. To me this is dishonest to all of a sudden not honor the agreement we had. We will not be going back there. Lesson learned - always have a signed agreement.More

Small restaurant serving Lebanese kabobs. Lunch Chicken Shawarma ($7.95) was good, as was the appetizer spicy hummus with beef sharama ($16.20). It seemed odd that the appetizer costs more than two lunches...oh well. Meal hit the spot, but wasn't anything above the norm. Parking can...be challenging, some spots in back of restaurant.More

I know nothing about Middle Eastern food but I love Mediterranean and that's what we have here--with hummus. Loved the kebabs, we tried both chicken and beef, both superb. The house red wine was exceptionally good, I would come back just for that.

We were going to the Long Beach Arts Center across the street and decided to have dinner here before the show. Inside very traditional Mediterranean decor, nicely done. We started with some Sauteed potatoes, warm pita bread with Hummus. Must have been good because they...were gone in no time. We then got both chicken and beef shwarma platters and a bottle of wine. Great flavor on both the chicken and beef dinners. Everyone enjoyed the dinner and the play afterwards!More

You would never know by walking by this place how amazing it is. When you walk through the doors you enter a place where you feel like you're not in Long Beach anymore! The server was sweet & friendly and I had a lot of...questions since I didn't know what many of the items where. I got a chicken plate that came with garlic sauce, hummus, it was absolutely delish! The sweet tea was great and everybody loved their lunches. It was a nice retreat from the busy outside world and great mediterranean fare.More
