Em Sherif gives you the Lebanese mezze experience at its best. Many of the mezze dishes given there are tweaked a bit from the traditional version which gives you a very differentiated experience. There are plenty of dishes brought to the table so make sure...More

The food is delicious. ..be sure to try the "Maqaneq" and the spiced potatoes. Best mottabal ever. The only downside is that it's very busy and we had to stand for like half an hour waiting for a table.

Em Shérif is a traditional Lebanese restaurant with mezzes and Lebanese delicacies, but the way the food is served, as well as the taste, is simply WOW and out of this world. A little expensive though.

Unfortunately yes. I doubt they will accept without reservation & preferably a week in advance if you have certain date in your mind. Sometimes you may need to do your reservation more than one week in advance.
