Great service and absolutely delicious Middle Eastern food and I know what I'm talking about, I'm Lebanese. I recommend the Lebanese wine too. Oh and you get complimentary olives and crudités!
This restaurant manages to combine excellent Lebanese food with a smart modern decor. The special dishes of the day are well worth a try and the staff are discrete and efficient.
Awesome Lebanese wine list. Superb food. Service was attentive and it's clearly a family affair. Had 3 starters and one main between two. Loved it all.
