Situated on Wilmslow Rd all but 2 mile from the curry mile, this place is a cut above. Welcoming staff, an interesting menu, beautifully cooked, fresh food, reasonable prices and comfortable seating. Busy, yes, but understandably so.

Some reviewers have said that it's a shame that no sharing platters are offered. Initially I though that, but on reflection, it allows you to make a nicer choice so you can avoid the standard houmous and try something different. How about the stunningly colourful freshness of tabbouleh loaded with parsley?

We can recommend either the chicken or lamb kebabs for the mains. I had the tender, subtly spiced shredded lamb, nice and rich but not overly fatty as lamb can be sometimes. A tinge of warm cinnamon spice was a nice touch and served with a small garnish and yogurt. A glass of salty aryan also delivered.

Will certainly book ahead next time we are heading to Manchester.

Highly recommended if the curry mile 'does your head in' with its hustle and bustle and the parking's not so good as it is here. Just stop before you get to Rusholme and try this place.

Kenit Taybé, be jannin! My cousin and I, both now living in the North West, are half Lebanese; and when longing for the food of our culture, we explore to find Lebanese cuisine in an atmosphere of relaxing, warm service. Pasha she knew would be the perfect place for us as she has been here several times. It was my first and she brought me to celebrate my birthday. What a gift!
It was nice to read how the restaurant easily accommodates the eating styles of all it's customers and we were no exception. We asked to have all of the food, small and large dishes to come out to us as soon as they were ready. It is not overly hyperbolic to say that each bite of every dish made us smile with that unspoken connection of remembering home: Labneh, Tabouleh (perfect!), Spinach and Cheese Bourak, Potato Kibeh, and Maklobeh with cucumber and mint yogurt... We lingered over the authentic flavours and relished each bite!
The restaurant space is tastefully decorated with a mix of influences, both downstairs and in the first floor. The seating was comfortable and the service was brilliant-especially patient with us taking so much time to order because we wanted it all! At the start of our meal we were already counting on Turkish coffee and I was ready to indulge in Kenafeh, one of my favourites. We were just too full of nostalgia and beautiful food. So, if Pasha does not mind, we plan to come at some point and have a mezza of desserts! Beautiful food, beautiful ambience, a beautiful choice.

The mixed kebab was great along with the falafel and hummus, everything very fresh and nicely prepared and presented. Lovely service. Highly recommended.

First of all, this is a BYO restaurant, so if you want a glass of wine with your dinner, bring your own bottle! Or, as we did, run across the road and buy one!
Nice and authentic feel to it and the food was excellent! What I would say though is that it would e good if they had a sharing platter option on their menu. We chose 3 different starters to share (kashkeh, batata harra and arayes), 2 main courses (kebab halabi and shish tawouk) and a Lebanese salad - and we asked for everything to arrive at the same time. It was the perfect amount for 2 hungry souls, and we thoroughly enjoyed it!! Just under 40 GBP for the 2 of us. Would definitely recommend this restaurant if you're up for an exotic culinary experience!

We had a great time at this local gem. The food is very tasty, portions are just right and the service is outstanding. Not to be missed if you want top good and great service. They don't serve alcohol and if you bring your own they don't charge corckage!
