Description: Located in the most visited place in Singapore - the Arab Quarters within Kampong Glam District , and situated on the Historic Bussorah Street that turns into a vibrant Pedestrian Street over weekends. Since 2009, Beirut Grill has been serving authentic Lebanese and Arabic cuisine and possibly the best Middle Eastern Dining experience in Sg. With its lovely and cozy ambiance, you will feel the quixotic Arabian atmosphere along with the friendly service of its staff. Beirut is best known for its signature dishes like the sumptous, succulent and tender grilled 'Lamb Chops,' delectable char-grilled to perfection 'Shish Taouk,' and tasty appetizing 'Hummus'. Spread across 2 levels, including a Arabian Nights "theme" lounge, there is much entertainment during the week including Belly Dancer & Live Band. Beirut Grill has been rated Tops in Middle eastern / meditteranean cuisine by Wine&Dine, RAS Epicurean, Singapore Air, The Telegraph, Expat Living and many more.Beirut Experience Awaits

Where taken here by an ex pat Aussie, food was fresh and flavoursome, we had some mixed entrees followed by the lamb chops, very reasonably priced, we had one bottle of wine and more than enough food for the three of us at a cost of $118. Service was not as good as I thought it should of been given the number of restaurants close by. Worth a try if you want some Lebanese. The whole street is a hive of activity, so worth a look.

We selected this place based on the Foodpanda reviews. We had the pitta bread, hummus, shish taouk and lamb kebab kofta (via Foodpanda). With the exception of the hummus (which was lovely), the rest of our meal was substandard (and we are a family that appreciates good middle eastern food). Perhaps it was a trainee chef on the day, because we have heard lots of great things about this place, so maybe it may be better next time.
Second, our order came to 75 SGD. This was a real let down because we ordered one of each dish expecting greater quantities for those prices, but we were still hungry after the meal. This is overpriced because we had a hotdog, burger and club sandwich with fries/soft drinks at the Hard Rock Cafe in Sentosa for 83 SGD and we left filled to the brim with food remaining. Please do try to rectify this.

We are sorry about your experience with Food Panda involving our cuisine.

We have investigated. And found that the delivery service you mention took close to an hour to reach you after it was ordered. Our food is mostly grilled items and the flavours and taste does not remain same if consumed after that long. We have highlighted the same to the delivery service also. We prepare the delivery food within 15 Mins from receiving orders. And expect another 15mins for delivery.

Our prices are infact very reasonable as you can see from our reviews. But the delivery services add their margins and service charges on TOP.

We would like to extend our warm invitation to dine in at our restaurant. Same food as you have listed here. It would be with our compliments and you can reach me via sanjay@f5ivegroup.com. Please try the food here and then review us. And if the food is up to your liking , we would only request you to remove this review from trip advisor as this is page is meant for our dine-in location.

Appreciate your understanding. Our teams work very hard to improve our listing rating at trip advisor and other rating forums. And we get let down by this for no fault of ours.

Looking forward to hosting you soon !!

The place is famous. You'd know it from the amount of reviews, the good ones!

So I just dropped by to tell you that you won't regret ordering this dish. You can share it among 2 or 3 people.

Oum Ali.. sounds spiritual! Actually it is! Healed my soul!

(Ok, I exaggerate when it comes to dessert. But you will like it)

You can thank me later :)

Beirut Grill...was there past weekend with couple of friends. Found the place was quite busy and packed,few tables were empty but with glasses n plates...same time a guy ( wearing formal ) approach us and asked ; if we need table... We asked for sitting outside and instantly he clear the table and provide us seats which was good enough.. as we didn't know much about labanese food so decided to go on recommendations.. We had parsley salad,cold dips with bread,falfel,sausage chicken with rice, minced lamb and hot cream pudding in desserts. A must say so delicious food...! It was really a great evening with foods and drinks, warm welcome and awesome service. Belly dance was the unique experience during dinning...
We will visit this place again as it's so beautiful atmosphere around. Lots of people hanging around throughout the dinning period...

Thanks to TripAdvisor for dinning suggestions, Beirut Grill and the guy who made us comfortable there....

On a 48 hour visit to Singapore, I stumbled into this terrific Lebanese restaurant near Arab street. TheBeirut Mazza platter is a great deal and includes a tasting of authentic hummus, baba ghannouj, eggplant salad, falafel and cheese rolls. They were all exceptionally good. The tabouleh was below average and included local spices that are not typical. The freshly baked bread enhanced the experience.

While we didn't have the Kabob, it looked really good and well presented.

Great spot for lunch and dinner. Average cost by Singaporean standards.
