Will be back next time I'm in town. The food is just excellent.

best lebanese food your money can buy anywhere in London. The only reason I dod not give it 5 stars is because the service was not up to par.

Brilliant menu, excellent food and very good choice for vegetarians. Booking is recommended as the restaurant is very busy. Service is exceptional and everyone is very friendly and will ensure your trip is an memorable one.

We had our first Lebanese food experience and it was great!! The staff was great! We ask for a lot of explanation and we receive a really kind service! We had little bit of everything and we really enjoy it! We'll definitely come back again! Great value for money!
