“Worst of the worst”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

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 advise anyone to go there, just a simple disappointment.

“Delicious, different, & the best mojito”
Reviewed 30 January 2013

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 courses and desserts. Situated in Rivonia/Edenburg, it is a little confusing to find the entrance to the parking lot, but worth the effort. There is belly dancing on certain evenings and Middle Eastern music. For something different, this is definitely worthy of a visit.
