Fabulous Lebanese food. My wife and I ordered the vegetarian sampler and enjoyed every bit of it, especially the baba ganoush. The staff was friendly and service prompt. Definitely the best Mediterranean food we have ever eaten. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Had dinner catered by Leyla. All our guests were extremely happy. The food at this restaurant is truly amazing and they thought of everything to make it easy to serve the many dishes we ordered. They really are the best restaurant in Charleston!

Went there on a whim and we were really happy we did. The entire staff was incredibly friendly and if they weren't family, it seemed like they treated each other like they were. They were super helpful offering recommendations and descriptions of items we weren't...More
