Non professional... Serving the food cold and tasteless.
The place doesn't look like a Lebanese one ... Although they claim they are a Lebanese Restaurant

We went to dine there on a 3 course meal voucher. WOW what a different experience from the variety of starters: spinach and feta pies, vegetables, humus, lamb meat balls, to the main course of chicken kebab with chips and rice to the desserts of chocolate squares, sweet biscuits, to milk custard. Amazing tastes - wonderful experience. We went on a Sunday lunch but would go again.

The manageress was friendly and helpful. She recommended we come on Friday and Saturday supper when belly dancers are there. Beverage and alcohol reasonably priced.

Venue also caters for various different party events. Recommend this restaurant for a different dining experience.
The waitress was attentive and cleared the tables timeously.

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.

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.
