If you’re hoping for a change from High Street chains and cheap takeaways in Kirkcaldy, Fatma Restaurant and Grill House may be just the ticket. This cosy Kirkcaldy restaurant offer generous portions of healthy, authentic Lebanese grilled meats and vegetables, as well as a mouthwatering spread of, well, mouthwatering Middle Eastern spreads, bread and small bites. If you’re eating in a group, we suggest opting for some mezze platters of hummus, moutabal, warak inab, falafel, haloumi, batata harah and tabbouleh salad, because these are suitable for everyone (vegetarians and vegans included, if you skip the haloumi) and are a delicious way to get a little taste of a lot. Fatma also does great a la carte meals, though, whether we’re talking about their tasty cumin- and lemon-scented lentil soup for lunch, hefty lamb and spinach stew or irresistible knafeh (oven-baked shredded pastry, filled with cheese and drizzled with rose water syrup) for dessert.
Really different and varied menu which is very reasonably priced. We both ended up choosing the chicken liver with pomegranate starter which was cooked to perfection and delicious! The mixed schwarma (chicken and lamb), with rice, was really flavoursome; cooked with various herbs and spices (but not spicy hot). It came with salad and humous too, and the rice could be replaced with chips. The host (?owner) is very welcoming and friendly. We will definitely be visiting again.
Always a pleasure to go to fatma! Staff is very friendly and very good food. Even when we do no go there for a evening meal we order on take away! Same quality and taste.
Last night was my second visit. I persuaded our friends to try it, they were a bit sceptical but they loved It. Samir and his staff were very friendly and the service and food fantastic. I will be back soon.
Excellent buffet, friendly staff and entertainment by super belly dancers were people have a chance to get up and join in having fun and learning moves
Didn't know what to expect as I had never experienced Lebanese food. We were a party of 5 and when asked what menu we'd like to choose from were a bit confused... so the man who served us offered to bring out a selection for us.... what a selection it was... the table was full of delicious, fresh, tasty dishes, a lot of which I would never have thought to order from a menu. Each one was as tasty as the next! Then he announced that that was just for starters... a selection of grilled meats, kebabs, chops arrived along with some beautiful vegetarian stews and warm fresh bread. All 5 of us were stuffed! We were offered dessert and on explaining that we were all more than full - we were each given a small scoop of saffron ice cream and some baked quince - delicious! Overall a great dining experience and excellent value for money! Will definitely be back!
We had an excellent meal at Fatma last week. The owner is very friendly, welcoming and interesting to talk to. The food was great. I particularly loved the wide range of starters - we were spoiled for choice! We also tried an unusual Lebanese wine, which we liked very much. Prices are very reasonable given the high standard of the food - another good reason for going. This was my second visit and I shall certainly be back. I would definitely recommend it. (By the way, I don't "do" reviews as a matter of course but Fatma deserves to be successful and I'm happy to help.)
The food was fresh and tasted great - the mezze starter for 2 was excellent. The service was attentive and welcoming - the needs of my 2 year old were dealt with, they prepared a great little mini platter for him with no problems at all. We will definitely return.
Staff very welcoming and explain the menu in detail for anyone unfamiliar with Lebanese food. Food itself is delicious and arrives in massive quantities. Excellent value for money. Highly recommended.
Quiet restaurant, in the heart of kircaldy. Great food, great team. Would recommend it to couples or staff get togethers. Only negative is that the restaurant was cold, could have put the heating on.
We went at around 7pm and we're impressed with the quality of the food for both carnivores and vegetarian alike. Service was friendly and efficient. Highly recommended.
