The only reason I visited was to enjoy the belly dancing. What an absolute waste of time. A few dances by a new dancer and it was all over. The food wasn't too great either and we were forced to both eat for a minimum amount even though both my husband and I didn't enjoy it.

This was supposed to be a friend's birthday dinner. We were last here three years ago. The restaurant has changed for the worse. From the outside it looked shabby - the name of the place not visible. No hostess at the door and no longer a dress code. The only good thing was the set menu - still the same... More

Non professional... Serving the food cold and tasteless. The place doesn't look like a Lebanese one ... Although they claim they are a Lebanese Restaurant

We went to dine there on a 3 course meal voucher. WOW what a different experience from the variety of starters: spinach and feta pies, vegetables, humus, lamb meat balls, to the main course of chicken kebab with chips and rice to the desserts of chocolate squares, sweet biscuits, to milk custard. Amazing tastes - wonderful experience. We went on... More

This is the WORST Lebanese restaurant I have ever been to. The atmosphere isn't even Lebanese, just because the food is Lebanese and they have some Lebanese music in the background it doesn't make it Lebanese. I didn't even want to order Lebanese food, I ordered plain steak, and my 2 friends also ordered steak. It was terrible. I don't... More

Firstly its the mojito that impressed! Outside of Cuba, they usually aren't that good. This one was great. The food is Labanese, interesting, well presented and the meze is varied and worth exploring. The set menu options, although not clearly priced, give you a very good tasting of the meze on offer. There is also an interesting selection of main... More
