Lovely fine local restaurant - with fair prices and excellent service. Close to metro and Hyatt. On the interesting Al Rigga Rd. Highly recommended - e.g. the barbeques

This restaurant was recommended to us and it was ok. The food was acceptable but not anything brilliant. My wife's starter and main course came at the same time and then I had to wait a further 10 mins for my main course. Desserts looked on interesting. Wouldn't choose to visit again

Fairly large restaurant, Easy to read menu, with pictures of each dish. Good value, and well prepared. Large choice. Service a little slow but not unacceptable. We had the mezze.

Al Safadi, Rigga Road is headed by Chef Omar Harbaly whose been working as Group Executive Chef since the restaurant's inception almost 17 years ago. This is a home from home place for me, where the waiters from my first visit made me welcome and provided excellent service, never forgetting anything. Their traditional Lebanese food is just perfect - hot... More

Al Safadi have multiple locations and when you exit Al Rigga station there is one right outside the station. However, this is only a cafe so head down the street (about a 2minute walk) to find the restaurant. With outdoor seating, it’s a lovely spot to people watch too. But anyway, on to the food. Don’t miss the fatayer spinach,... More

We had a good dinner with a friend. The restaurant offers a pleasant outside sitting area. All dishes were fresh and tasty. The most delicious was seasonal lamb balls in cherry sauce but salads, shoarma on humus and laban were also very well done. The disappointing part was at the end, when we ordered Arabic tea and got Lipton teabag.

We went here for dinner as we stayed close by. Ordered a large amount of starters to taste different foods. Only regret is that our stomachs were too small for more. Amazing food, very good staff. if you are into Lebanese food, this is defiantly the place to go if in town.

I went to Al Safadi for a dinner with my family. The waiters are very friendly. The food did not take long to come and the food was very fresh. I feel that the waiters need to learn more English because some of them do not know how to explain the items on the menu. In conclusion I found that... More
