This is without a doubt is the place to go to. They have good Lebanese food, full bar, hookah, DJ, and belly dancing. What more can you ask for? Their kabobs, veggie platter, and specially their seafood soup are a must try!!

There is a wall with glass doors separating the dining room from the hookah lounge. When the lounge is empty, the dining experience is very, very good. However, when the hookah smoke is billowing, the discomfort grows on the dining side. The restaurant has several...More
