“Feels like home”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

The ambience, the environment and the food is amazing.
Have been wanting to go and try the food and finally went for iftaar 3 days back.
Ordered Labneh saj, Chicken Liver, Hummous, Spicy potatoes, seafood paella, chicken shwarama and meat tikka.
Saj was hot and Labneh was evenly ditributed.
Spicy potatoes were crisp and well seasoned. In addition, did not taste as if it was fried.
The garlic paste was a winner. Chicken Liver with lemon and garlic was properly cooked, was melting in the mouth.
Hummous was well blended and well seasoned.
Seafood Paella was the hero dish. The mussels were so well cooked and the fish was so soft. The tiger prawn was so delish and the rice was cooked so well that we could taste each grain seperately.
The meat tikka was so soft and not greasy at all.

Then we ordered grape mint sheesha. It was so smooth and lasted for almost 2 hours.

The waiting staff was very polite but the sheesha people were so lively and had a smile on their face all the time..

Would definitely take family there for food.

“Very tasty...”
Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

The food is very tasty in general, the Saj and Fettah was amazing while the hummus was note ready good to be honest. Moussaka is superb if you like egg plant. I ordered in, so not much service review. Would recommend to give it a try.
Hummus, Fettah with hummus with meat, meat Saj, Quattro formaggi Saj, chicken liver (terrible), sour cream Saj & moussaka = AED 156

“Highly recommended ! ”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

This place sets up the perfect traditional Lebanese kitchen with a nostalgic feeling. Whether you are into meat,chicken, or a vegetarian person, you will enjoy pretty everything that this restaurant has to offer. Their serving portion is big enough for your eyes to feel satisfied and will definitely leave your hunger at rest for quite sometime. Their menu is priced very reasonably and their fresh juices and cocktails are superb !

“Comfort Food”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

This is a great "neighborhood" restaurant that serves a range of traditional Arabic comfort foods. The service is good, the prices fair, and the food quite nice. It seems like a mix of tourists and locals. This restaurant is a quick walk away from Le Meridien and other nearby hotels. We went here twice during our visit. The first time we sat outside and really enjoyed it. The second time the smoke was a bit thick on the enclosed patio so we sat indoors, which was good but not great. Overall it seems like one of the better casual restaurants in the area.
