A small intimate restaurant with friendly and efficient service. We went for an early dinner and the restaurant quickly filled up. We chose the mezze and what a selection! More and more dishes kept on coming! A great variety of appetisers, all very tasty, and nice house wine too. My only gripe was that we needed a larger table! Very good value for money. Would definitely go back when next in Dublin.

This place was the best food I had in Dublin. The soup was fabulous! Great lamb meatballs in Lebanese sauce. Nice lunch special. Go!

We love this place - the service is really friendly and very helpful if you are unfamiliar with any of the menu (although you should just go with the banquet - amazing!). The food is fantastic with great variety and authentic flavours and the restaurant itself is comfortable and in a handy location. Definitely good value for money - we always leave stuffed full! Lots of vegetarian options.

Have been here for dinner maybe twice a year for the last few years and have always left feeling stuffed and happy. The food is always good and the portions are giant - one of the mezzes comes in two courses so after eating a vast selection of small dishes they then bring out the 'main' course, meat and rice or poratoes, we thought the waiter was joking the first time! Not all the mezzes are like that though, but the individual main courses are always very generous portions. For dinner it can work out quite expensive, especially if you have alcohol - the mains sometimes seem a tad overpriced, but they're always good.

Recently I noticed they do lunch specials, and having had some time off I gave them a go. Here you get excellent value, two courses and a soft drink for 11 euro - a good choice of starters and mains, or you can have a mezze, all options very filling.

The staff are always very good, particularly the waiter with the moustache, he's hilarious and always happy to point out if you're ordering too much food or give you good advice on a dish. Have never encountered the belly dancer, and hopefully never will as it's not something I enjoy while trying to enjoy a relaxing meal.

All in all a great option for authentic, tasty Lebanese food.

I ate in this restaurant last night. The staff were very friendly and the food was served quickly.

The food was tasty, but not spectacular. For what it cost, I would say it was average value for money.

No sign of the belly dancer mentioned in other reviews! But I think I am happy about that!!
