The food is really good but you have to know what you want, the prices are a little bit high so you can´t ask many dishes, the tip is to ask half dishes so you can enjoy more different itens since it´s all well made. The babaganoush is good, nice kafta and the raw meat is really good. I definitelly... More

An unassuming place and easy to get to, well worth the visit. Their hummus and babaganoush were superb, the simmered chicken I had was also great, with the star of the show being the stuffed vine leaves. These are often bland, but these were great examples. Would happily eat there again, but a fair jaunt from Glasgow!

Lovely place to go for a fun dinner for two or with a group of friends. The Lebanese staff are warm and friendly and the food is varied, fresh and of a very high standard. The service is efficient and friendly and you´re made to feel relaxed and welcome. The restaurant can be busy in the evenings, so it´s a... More

If you are one to endeavour on other than local cuisines when travelling, this pleasant Lebanese restaurant might be the right place for you. A spacious restaurant offering all the classical Lebanese dishes, freshly made and served with kind and attentive service. Very recommended!

We are not used to Lebanese food and were unsure what to expect but the food was exceptional quality, the restaurant was busy and so had a buzzing atmosphere.

This is decent lebanese in the city centre. The hummus and tabulleh was very good and fresh! The main dishes were ok. I have had better Lebanese food but this was decent. The service was correct but they didn't go the extra mile (none of the 4 waiters we bid farewell said goodbye) but I have to say they were... More

one of the (not so many) places open also on a Sunday. There is the part on the corner for an easy and faster food, and there is the dinner place in the side street. even if it looks like a small place, the restaurant is huge. I must confess that I had better Lebanese dinners, but the Falafel and... More
