Ok, so I'm the least qualified person to say this is authentic Lebanese food, but it certainly is delicious! Decor is cozy with low lighting, and pillows on the benches. Kitchen stops serving at 10p, so a little on the late side if you're looking for some good eats. The house made pita is the best, just like little warm... More

This has the most fabulous menu - Lebanese food, lamb, hummus - if you like these foods you'll love this place. I do have a severe allergy to coriander, which is used extensively in foods of this style, and it's difficult to get lamb not already marinated in this, so for that reason I say not allergy friendly. They will... More

We flew in Christmas Day evening to LAX and hoped to find something open for dinner before going to San Clemente. What a delightful surprise to find them not only open but finding us a table right away! The help were all so friendly and helpful and the food was AMAZING! We even tried their Lebanese wine suggestion. This is... More

There were two local recommendations, I stopped and reviewed the menu, I picked an appetizer and a sampler. More food than I needed! Delicious flavor, enough to reminisce my childhood and mother's cooking. The place had amazingly friendly servers and manager. I was spoiled with attention and good food. Freshly cooked pitta bread and hummus. Sat in front next to... More

I really like this restaurants. I had a Lang shank which I really enjoy. I would have liked the piece of lamb to have been bigger just because I was very hungry, but plate sizes are large. The lentils soup is excellent in winter.

So there are two competing Mediterranean restaurants almost across the street from each other. This is the better one. The meat is a better cut and the service is impeccable. It's smaller and you'll sit very close to the table next to you but it is worth it for the food. The mini pitas they bring you are so warm... More
