We enjoyed Leila’s so much we went twice in one week while on vacation. We each ordered an entree and a salad to split the first time but found the portions so large that we split an entree and had 2 appetizers the second time. The chicken kebab was excellent.

We sat outside as it was a beautiful evening. This added to the ambience. The food was delicious and plentiful. The entertainment was a fun addition to a good dining experience. The servers were helpful and attentive. If you like authentic middle eastern food, you will enjoy Leila's.

Our 2nd time at Leila, this time was for Valentine's Day. Sit outside if you can, it is much more quiet. Everything was very good, we tried the Leila Grill. Meats were cooked to perfection, as were the grilled vegetables.

This is a family run restaurant ...mom is the cook, son and daughter are the wait stuff and dad seems to be taking care of the business. My point is that this is a well run restaurant with care given to every part of the dining experience. The food is OUTSTANDING! My 4 star vs 5 star review has to do with the noise level. There was a very large party of 16 or so businessmen and women so it was rather loud while we were dining making it difficult to hear and carry on a conversation. On another night this might not be the case. Worth going - enjoy!

We were delighted that the music didn't drown out our conversation. I would have liked something more on the menu besides kabobs but this is what they do. They're very good.

Nice Middle East restaurant...very friendly and a great choice of Mid East starters. For the food we only gave four points, because a five for us means highest level, maybe second to none. If open table would do the rating scale more precisely...we would have given 4.5 for the food...

Incredible service and food! The owner and his staff are lovely people and accommodated a large group of my friends for a fun and memorable New Year’s Eve dinner. I would highly recommend as the food was all perfectly cooked and drinks were delivered quickly. Can’t wait to go back!

We were a party of six. This was all of our first visit to Leila. Great price fixed menu. Wonderful appetizers. Didn't love the desserts. The wait staff was extremely helpful. It is just a few locks from Dramaworks and a great choice for a pre-theatre dinner.
