Before I start this piece on the Lebanon Station restaurant it’s only fair to point out that I’m a fan.
The island of Koh Samui and especially the road running behind Chaweng beach has a huge number and range of restaurants. It’s very rewarding when you find a small one like the Lebanon Station, right in the middle of Chaweng beach, that serves it’s own style of food with great care. Abbas, who owns and runs the Lebanon Station, will helpfully guide you through his extensive menu and offer advice if required to anyone unfamiliar with middle eastern food. All of the restaurant’s food is prepared to order, all according to Halal customs. Favourite with many are the chicken and beef Shawarma based dishes, for good reason. There are plenty of options for vegetarians too, my personal favourites are the Tabouleh salad and the totally surprising Pita Bread with Za'atar.
If you want to find out more take a look at the Lebanon Station, Lebanese restaurant in Chaweng page on long time resident and dive instructor Camille’s Samui Info blog, http://samui-weather.blogspot.com/2010/05/lebanon-station-lebanese-restaurant-in.html
Since getting back to the UK I’ve been looking out for more restaurants that do Lebanese food, short of going to London or travelling hundreds of miles, there doesn’t seem to be any which is a great shame.
If you are lucky enough to find yourself on Koh Samui and are looking for something more that the standard steak and seafood fodder offered by the bigger restaurants then give this little gem a go, you won’t be disappointed.
