Very good food, presented in organized and creative ways. Friendly staff. Prices are so high to be for everyone, too expensive. No parking, and you have to pay around 10$ for valet parking services.

Tasty place but it used to be better. Still one of the best Lebanese restaurants in town. I wish the quality could improve again.

The place gets the hype due to it being linked with a popular Arabic singer in Lebanon. The setup is ok, the food not so ok, very average for Lebanon. Hostess is very sweet and helpful.
