“The best steak kabobs in Salalah”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Baalbek is a Lebanese restaurant in Salalah, Oman offering a variety of Mediterranean cuisine including hummus, falafel, greek salad, and more. The spotlight at Baalbek is on their grilled meats which are simply the best in Salalah. Chicken, lamb, minced meats, and succulent steaks all perfectly grilled and served shish kebob style. The food was so good everyone in our group wanted to go back only a few days later and it was even better the second time!

+ Patio dining out front and upstairs plus several dining rooms.
+ Fantastic selection of Mediterranean food plus some Western dishes.
+ Absolutely the best steak kabobs in Salalah

“A little gem”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Located on the famous July Street where most upmarket restaurants seem to reside, this is a little gem of a restaurant with traditional Omani food served at traditional Omani prices.

Fresh, clean, delicious food is what we were told to expect and this is exactly what you do get. Sitting outside and watching the traffic and people go past whilst eating Omani mezze, fish and meat is all part of the experience.

Afterwards, a walk down to the gold souq on the other side of the road will help your food go down. All in all, a restaurant in Salalah not to be missed.

“Food was good”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

The food was good but the quantity was very little compared to the price. I tried the shawarma and balbeck grill (was expecting fries with it) only meat and one pita came with some onions. Good seating area. Should try once atleast. But not a place to go more than once.

its a small basic place but well worth the find.. they have good traditional food and very reasonable prices.. the staff and all very helpful and friendly as well.
