We ordered takeout and came in with a $10 restaurant.com voucher. The nice man at the front said they do not honor the voucher for take-out which I understand IF THE VOUCHER MENTIONS THIS which it did not. He said 'oh we don't take this for take-out, we've been trying to get them to change it...sorry we don't take it'.... More

Lebanese food. Lively, informal, young clientele. Indoor/ outdoor seating, good service. Worth a stop in Berkeley.

We were on our way to see a show at the Berkeley Playhouse and decided to try this place for dinner since it's walking distance to the theater and parking can be tricky. The food was fantastic and came up quickly. The service was terrific even had time for a dessert coffee.

Thee are not many nice restaurants in Berkeley. This one is full of atmosphere, and their platters offer a nice variety of small portions of fresh and tasty food. We liked it enough to go back three times in one week.

Beirut by way of California. We ate here with my daughter who has been to Beirut and loves the food. This is very authentic and delicious food. The waitpersons are mostly family and our waitress should look to another career before it is too late.

Menu and quality has not changed over the years. Very reliable and tasty Middle Eastern cuisine, a place we go to for take-out. Prices are a bit high for what you get, but always good.

Had lunch for 4 here this weekend and we had a pleasant time. Very roomy restaurant with tables available for inside and outside. The decor was interesting that added greatly to the dishes on the menu and the service was perfect. For starters we ordered a combination plate of Hummos, Baba Ghanoush, Tabuleh, Dolmas, Feta Cheese and Olives served with... More

We visit here at least once every visit to Berkeley. It is fun, on a warm night to sit outside and people watch. The food and service are great. The platters are enormous and feed a group.
