Delightful! Charming and authentic spot. The waiters were friendly and accommodating. Pleasantly surprised by lebanese wine - would love to know the producer of the Lebanese Chardonnay. Overall excellent experience and we will most certainly return.

I am Arabic, so I have many experiences about the Lebanese food. The food was very delicious. Also they have good service. However the price was too expensive.

Great food, super location, very friendly, good wines and a super value for money overall. Menu is rich and varied, service efficient and unpretentious. Definitely worth the detour and many many more repeat visits, every time I feel like Lebanese food. Great place for parties, gatherings and private functions. I will consider using deliveries, when time is precious. Keep up,the good work.
