    Outstanding authentic cuisine expertly prepared and properly presented. Generous portions. Attentive and professional staff. Willing to share secrets of a great baba ganoush. Can't wait to return. Wish they had a restaurant in central Florida!

    The food is unique in Charleston (Lebanese) and wonderful. Frogs legs are always one of our choices but so many other things to try. Some day we will get the sampler and spend hours enjoying the whole experience.

    I've eaten here twice now, both times with clients (one of which is vegan). We were all able to have a great dinner. I'm not a big fan of lamb, but if all lamb tasted like theirs, I would quickly become one. They are very accommodating and happy to make recommendations. The wine is from Lebanon and is quite good. Will definitely be back.
