Without exception, every single time I'm in Beirut, we pass by and have cheese and zaatar manakeesh (Lebanese pies), and enjoy a Philadelphia and a fajita with some juice. The shawarma sandwiches are out of this world! Good value for money, good food, fast.

Good place to have sandwiches in a hurry or on the go. The shawarma and falafel are delicious. The value also is also quite competitive to other fast food options in Lebanon.

Clean and tasty falafel. Genirous quantity. For us a visit to Beirut is not complete without a sandwich at Barbar.
