Best steaks ever! They seriously can cook steak like no one else. Not all food they serve is Lebanese ( I only know about few appetizers, shush kabobs and deserts). But if you don't want Lebanese cousin, there is plenty other food. You would be...More

Lebanese cuisine seems to be more popular each year. Lake Charles is fortunate to have an authentic place owned by a Lebanese family. There are other types of food available if you are not a fan of Mediterranean food. It is all great.

We had a wonderful meal. They might have the best burger I've ever had. The chicken shwarma sandwich was outstanding. Don't let the building appearance fool you, it's very nice inside.

Love the tuna steak. Bacon wrapped dates are awesome. The place doesn't look like much from the outside but is very nice inside, Beautiful wood bar and white linen table cloths. Great atmosphere!!
