Not an extremely fancy place, just a simple restaurant with a welcoming and cozy atmosphere. Service is great, the food is so delicious - everything from snacks to lemonades tastes fantastic, and you'll wish you had more stomach space. You could order anything off the...More

Authentic Lebanese food and wine, especially the lamb dishes. Hard to believe that this is a chain restaurant. The Lebanese red wines by the glass are also very good. Great value and serve. Highly recommend.
