Tasty home food with rapid delivery. Prices on the very high side but acceptable for the portion size and taste. Highly recommended.

What a concept - best local cuisines and having different chefs daily. As usual the Lebanese have got the creative flare! Wonderful place.

The Hamra location has since closed. The Gemayzeh outlet is very active. The decoration is simple, the staff friendly and the food delicious. Worthy of a visit to explore the Lebanese cuisine in a little more detail.

Tasty food but slow service. The open buffet misses hot dishes and whatever is empty is not refilled. The daily dish variety is acceptable.

One of the things I dislike most when visiting Beirut, is that when you are taken out for lunch or dinner, this is usually mezza most of the time. This little restaurant takes that routine taste out of your paladar.

this is not a place for tourist. while tourist have to tast typical lebanese food (barbeque and Mezza) this place offers kind of "mom's food", the type we cook at home everyday. the buffet is deceiving, and not every dish is tasty. this is a place where u have to order only a "plat du jour" when ur at work....
