One of the best Lebanese set menu option. Great food, very home like cooking and choices are great not to mention the value of money. Booking for dinner is extremely hard so I managed after many attempts, but it very worth it

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.
