It's packed! I guess that means all the locals like it. Nice food. Casual atmosphere. Packed into a small space. Great!

Barbar restaurant is very popular at low range price. Food is good, far better than junk food, you have variety to choose from, very busy. I found the food delicious & tasty. In Hamra street area there are nearly 4 different branches close to each other, I used to take sandwiches from all to try, all good.

If you know about food history in Lebanon, then for sure you heard about Barbar one of the most famous places around Hamra. Well known for his falafel and shawarma with a big collection of sandwishes. Has a tasty food, a place where you can always find something delicious to order.

Lebanese cuisine fast food style. Be careful what you order because the portions are big. The courtesy starter is almost a meal. Not absolutely the cheapest place but it is in the centre of the city, but it wasn't expensive by Beirut standards. The food came quickly, looked fresh and appetising.

I've been eating at Barbar for years. Every time I have visitors, that's the first place I take them for a quick Lebanese bite. Everyone I have taken so far loves the food. Some of the best items are the shawarma, kabab with aubergine, and even their burger.

It is a decent place to grab a quick bite while walking on Hamra street. con: Small sandwhiches and slightly more expensive than competitors.

Thank Karim D
