You will not be disappointed with this charming and friendly Libanese restaurant. Order the mezzé and let the chef surprise you. A great choice specially for vegetarians as the menu plays a lot with eggplant, humus, taboule etc. Simply delicious!

A great selection of hot and cold meze. If you're with a group, try the meze selection (14 dishes for four people). The Lebanese rosé wine we tried was very decent. But as everywhere round here, the prices still come as a shock.

This was a comfortable restaurant with good service and really good Lebanese food. After 3 days of Swiss and French food, we were ready to change it up and started trying restaurants in the ethnic area of Geneva and, thanks to TripAdvisor, we were not disappointed. We started with hummus balameh (with meat), and cheese samosas (jubneh). They were both excellent. The hummus was smoothly whipped and creamy just the way I like it. I was disappointed that they did not offer fresh baked hot bread which is usually a staple of a good Lebanese restaurant. Instead they had sliced pita Arabic bread which I could have bought in any grocery store. May be because it was off-peak season and a Tuesday night......maybe the bread chef was on vacation. Other than the bread disappointment, everything else was delicious and I would definitely go back. Prices were reasonable for Geneva.

This restaurant is located in the heart of the Paquis, the bohemian and ethnic neighborhood of Geneva. Really outstanding Lebanese food. Unfortunately the Lebanese wines served are not on par with the food.

Chez Sami serves amazingly delicious and authentic food, the meal was even better than in some places I tried in the Middle East . Meat is cooked perfectly, chicken is perfectly marinated, and the tabouleh and hommos and all vegetarian mezzeh platters are excellent. We tried 14 different plates of Mezzeh and I can say that they were all fantastic. Service was very attentive and perfect in terms of timing. Highly recommended.
