I've had dinner there with my friends. The food was delicious, service fast and waiter very attentive. He recommended vegetarian options, helped to pick Lebanese wine and was extremely helpful.

Try this place if you are in the area. It's a hidden gem!

We were looking for something before a Knicks game at Madison Sq Garden. The menu seemed fairly reasonable so we gave it a try. We had the hummus and the Lebanese cheese both with fresh bread which was very nice, lots too for two people. For the main course we had the stuffed lamb which was on the specialities part of the menu and something which I can't remember the name of but resembled a square cut piece of 10cmx10cm chocolate cake but made from meat -tasted a bit like black pudding. This was accompanied with a piece of lettuce. Both dishes were really bland in taste and were expecting more. The lamb is quite big when served but just doesn't have a great taste apart from lamb I didn't really taste any seasoning at all. The other dish was so dry, they do serve it with a little yoghurt which is needed otherwise you would think you were eating cardboard. However, some other people seated near us ordered the kebobs which looked very nice maybe we just got unlucky with the dishes we chose. The service was excellent and would come back here again and hopefully get lucky with another dish.

Where to start! We stumbled upon this place by accident a couple of saturday evening's ago. We were greeted by the manager, Rodrigo who was amazing. The food was great the entertainment was excellent.
I cannot emphasise how great the food was. It's not cheap at all, but it's worth every dime. The humous is the best I've ever had (and my mother is from the middle east!) All of the staff were great and on form. If you are in this part of mid-town you have to go. Our server was excellent and treated us like we were in a michelin star restaurant!

We ordered the Baba Ganoush, Muhamarrah and vegetarian Stuffed grape leaves. after all this we still ended up ordering a main (can't remember what we had) but the food was decent. It's actually one of a rare sit out lebanese restaurants, so if you're in the mood for a proper meal it's a nice place.
