“A medium size Lebanese restaurant offering very good mezze with grilled meat and chicken”

Abou Jihad Restaurant
Ranked #126 of 1,020 Restaurants in Beirut
Cuisines: Lebanese
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 13, 2017

With time, Abou Jihad’s consistency in taste and service has made of it a good choice for Lebanese meze and food lovers.

The setting is fine, smokers are separated from nonsmokers, the food tastes really good especially the grilled meat, Kabab in all its variants (kheshkash, orfali, halabi ..) besides, Abou Jihad has high chairs for babies and toddlers.

Delivery is very much punctual and food arrives always hot.
Prices are very pocket friendly.

English menu available which is a good start.
We ordered kibbe houmous mouttabel fatoush and several other dishes including savoury potatoes which were really delicious.
No mains needed as we were really full after this selection.
Strangely they also brought us a half lettuce and cabbage which everyone was given.
Busy and vibrant and full of the Creme de la creme of Beirut society including a few government ministers.
One part of the restaurant is for the shisha participants.
Much better mezze than the square cafe. Priced reasonably too worth a taxi ride.

We used to live across the street from Abou Jihad when I was a kid. I had in my memory the fantastic taste of the Hoummos and the grilled chicken that we sued to get there. So i decided to go back to the newly redecorated place. Unfortunately I was disappointed. The food is OK but the place has no charm and the service is nonexistent. it might be OK for a quick lunch but nothing more

I recommend Abou Jihad for meat lovers. Good quality food. Restaurant became a bit pricey after renovations.

Thank you for your review, however our prices haven't changed for quite a longtime now (since 2015)!
