Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Definitely a unique little Lebanese restaurant. Very welcoming and the details are memorising. Emilio was so friendly. The food!! Incredible. So many flavours. We had the Beirut Platter, Falafel Platter, and Chicken shish. Then a complimentary desert made by the Chef. So tasty. Highly recommend.

Food full of flavour, great for any occasion. Emilio is a gent that will look after you and show you the best Damascus Gate, has to offer . The Syrian fries and Taboulleh particularly stand out.

Don’t be fooled by the plain exterior. There’s a true gem hiding here. You will always come back after you’ve had the Jerusalem Mezza starter.

It's a little off the beaten track but well worth the walk up Camden street. Everything here is flavourful and delicious - have the Jerusalem Mezza!

The food was great and the service was amazing :) the waiter was really attentative. We started with the Beirut Mezza, with the best hummus and finished with the lamb Mansaf and Kabseh - both were delicious!

Still open, more of a sit down place but you can take away if you want. Would recommend going and sitting down for a meal. Should be good to walk in without a booking.
