Nice warm cheesy pasta n absolutely mouth watering lamb pizza on our 1st cold winter night. Very generous slices of lamb. Wanted to go again but sadly we were too early n it's not opened yet for business.

Strongly recommend. Good value for money, authentic Lebanese cuisine and friendly staff. Staff stayed back past closing time, despite us being the last customers. The food was delicious and left a lasting impression on my fussy partner who was yet to try Lebanese food and myself who has eaten plenty of Lebanese dishes! Great experience.

Unassuming restaurant well located close to the Sky Tower. Small seating area downstairs, much larger area upstairs. The upstairs area is attractive, but if the restaurant isn't busy, it is a little spooky. The food was very good-meze platter enough for 3-4 people. Lamb kabobs were good-not a huge portion of meat but the rice is very tasty (family is... More

What a surprise! This little hidden away cafe served a Lamb Pizza to knock your socks off! We went back a second night to try another dish and we were not disappointed! You must try this place!

Great for a delicious, quick lunch. The downstairs is a little cold so I suggest sitting upstairs on a cold day. The service is prompt and the kumara chips accompanying the lamburger are crispy and delicious. For not a lot of money you can have a great feed here

The food was not too bad but the service was just appalling. The food was late (late as in almost two hours) and the staff didn't seem to care one bit when I complained to one of the staff not only they didn't apologize, they were rude about it and made it sound like it was our fault. I would... More
