  • Visitor Information

This is a funny place. The food is really good, authentic Lebanese, with excellent grilled lamb, tabouleh and lighter mezzes, it’s reasonably priced and the service is friendly and attentive. At weekends however it gets taken over by big groups of noisy kids. Several diners have complained about these crowds, and they do mar the experience. Obviously well-educated and well off, dressed in immaculate shirts with sunglasses on their heads, these young people clearly like the food as well but for some reason they think it’s alright to shout and swear at each other. Go during school hours for a delicious and authentic Lebanese meal in a chic and comfortable setting. The mezze are especially fine.
