Guided to this place by a well-informed local and it was spectacular. Tried and enjoyed lentil soup, falafels with babagenouz, warak enab (=dolma), rekakat (filo dough with feta), fool (FACS beans with garlic), kouris (stuffed squash - see picture), and probably a few other things. Had a bottle of a very nice Bekaa valley wine. Finished with baklava that was actually light and delightful and a nice Turkish coffee. Service was super friendly, helpful, and efficient. Loved this place!

For the second year in a row on a visit to LA, ate here with friends, one of whom is Lebanese. The food is good, the portions are large and reasonably-priced. Our Lebanese friend says the dishes are authentic and done well - they were certainly tasty. Service was friendly and not rushed.
Only complaint is that parking is difficult - limited number of parking spaces in their small shared parking lot and street parking is difficult to find and metered only.
Recommend if you are looking for a nice Lebanese restaurant in the Westwood/Westside area.

Every dish we've eaten here is excellent. It's a fun casual place with good service.
The waitstaff is knowledgable about the food and helpful in suggesting dishes.

If you are into Lebanese food - this is the place to go. The range of choices is excellent for both meat eaters and non-meat eaters. The salad dressing was sublime. Service was fast I n spite of the place being extremely busy. The waiter was helpful and the prices are quite reasonable. Only two drawbacks: (1) the parking lot was full and ha to hunt for a parking space on Westwood Blvd (not an easy thing to do); and (2) the tables could be cleaned more often, I'll come back by bus (station is close by) and I'll bring my own wipes.

Located in Westwood, tight parking but decent, cozy little place, very hospitable, food is fresh and home made, a typical lebanes way, not the modified American version which I loved. We ordered the Hummas with meat and pine nuts - Amazing, the tabouli was very fresh and amazing, we ordered the kibbie Niya (raw kibbie) very nice and fresh, we also ordered the kibbie lebaniyah (kibbie made in yogurt mint sauce) served with rice AMAZING, and finally we ordered the eshta desert, everything was lovely and nice and I loved this experiance thank you for making such yummy food xxx
