Description: “The Lebanese cafe continues to impress us with its fresh mezze, interesting soft drink selection, snappy service and good looks.” – Time Out The food at Comptoir is fresh, healthy, honest and affordable.

Visit for lunch and dinner and enjoy all types of interesting and colourful dishes, including hot and cold mezze – perfectly sized for sharing- wraps, salads, tagines, grills and Man’aesh (Lebanese style pizzas). For dessert, nothing is more authentic than the sweet taste of baklawa – Lebanese pastries in a variety of flavours such as date filled semolina and walnut filled flaky pastry.

I went here with a party of 5 for my mum’s birthday. The service was great and very speedy. We shared a few different starters (mezze platter, set menu for two). It was all lovely and very fresh. The flat bread with cheese and mint was particularly delicious - very unusual. However, the mains were a little more disappointing. I ordered the fattet moussaka with aubergine however when it came it was freezing. They brought it back again and it was still quite cold - probably as a result of the ridiculous amount of yoghurt on top. It just tasted like a lukewarm yoghurt soup with a tiny bit of aubergine in. Two people had the lamb and halloumi burger and it came with no halloumi. They didn’t send it back as they thought perhaps the cheese was within the burger itself - but the menu did say it was topped with halloumi. Overall, I would definitely go back for snacks/starters but not keen on the mains!

In Manchester for the Manchester derby, so invited my friends to this armenian restaurant, we were seated and this unpolite waiter would not allow us to order until our friends would reach and asked us are we sure if the table will be full and if this is a joke..?and he comes back and tells us that this is not funny what kind of waiter would say such a thing to a customer so i would never reccommend this restaurant to anybody.

PS 2 tables were only occupied and it was basically empty.

Sunday night dinner, it was busy despite much local competition which is always a good sign. Service was friendly and knowledgeable and food was packed with flavour.
