Superb restaurant. Took my daughter for her birthday. Little apprehensive at first as we have never experienced Lebanese food but, this was truly amazing. The staff could not be faulted excellent service and enjoyed every minute. They didn't even rush you, which in my book is a must! Thank Jeita for a truly memorable night. We will be back soon.

The food was so different and very tasty. Our party of 7 thoroughly enjoyed a lovely selection of hot and cold starters and in hindsight wished we’d just had more of them instead of our main courses as they were that good! Pretty empty in there for a Thursday night which wa lucky as although I’d booked using OpenTabke, Jeita had no ideas we had booked, could have been bad but fortunately it was fine! Would definitely return as so nice to eat such different flavours, especially in Guildford.

Food excellent and ambience good. Only problem was the very high noise levels... conversations not really possible without shouting.

Friendly, personable service. A little slow between courses and we had to chase up our drinks after the starters arrived. Food was excellent. Enjoyable evening.

A very enjoyable meal. The only criticisms I have are that the wine list was very limited and there was no alcohol-free beer.

Excellent range of very tasty options for the vegetarian diner, especially starters - delicious fresh humus, good flatbread. Main dish with okra could have had a bit more 'bite' in the okra.
Main initial disappointment was a poor wine menu - 2 reds, 2 whites, some fizz, all of undistinguished provenance, £15-£20. They might have been very good, there's lots of excellent red wine in Lebanon, but an enquiry revealed that they had some Ch Musar '06 hidden away at a very reasonable price so we enjoyed that instead.

Didn't know what to expect but on arrival we were immediately put at ease.The restaurant was beautifully decorate and seating extremely comfortable.We were attended to straight away and what we ordered turned out to be very good.We did have to chase up the waiter for a dessert menu but that didn't colour our experience . We are planning to return and this time order the set menu for two as we feel we would get a better taste of what's on offer

We were so impressed with the quality and service that we are planning to go back soon with our children. The food was fresh and well cooked and they also had on offer quite a few authentic products: wine, beer etc...
A great alternative to the boring, expensive and non special restaurants in the area.
One for the foodies.

Went to Jeita on Saturday night with our family to celebrate my Son's birthday. It was out first time and when we explained and I asked for any advise on what to order I was just told to order the set menu but the waitress didn't have a good understanding on what was in the set menu.

We ordered a round of drinks and on delivery of this to the table the waitress lost balance of the tray and poured a large glass of rose win all over me! It wasn't just a splash, the entire glass was poured into my lap.
She was obviously apologetic and many times said she didn't mean to do it (I would hope not). The mess was cleared, I was given a new chair swiftly and I was given a few extra napkins but that was it.
Things happen but I would have expected the Manager to come over and apologies and their should have been some recognition of the event. I was driving so didnt need a free drink but t would have been nice to have been offered or at least I would have expected to see some deduction on the bill.

We have eaten in Turkey many times and the selection of dishes are very similar but its hard to remember the names of all the dishes. We ordered the set menu and the food was great, lots of cold starters which would have satisfied everyone we didn't need the main course. The delivery of all the dishes could have been better and the table was too small as the plates started to pile up...they plates needed to be cleared better and we had to start to put water jug and other stuff on the floor to make room.

Overall, the waitress and general service was overall poor which was shame as the food was good and plentiful. I wont be rushing back.

We went to Jeita for our anniversary meal and the whole experience was lovely. The food was absolutely delicious. We ordered a couple of starters to share and then both had different meat dishes for our main course. Everything was absolutely perfect and we will definitely come again!

What a great treat for the taste buds. Who knew hommos could tast so good? Went a bit overboard on the starters which meant I couldn’t do justice to the main course - but they were very happy to provide a doggy bag - not that the dogs are going to get any of it! Really nice friendly staff. Will definitely be going again.

Food is fresh tasting and delicious. So refreshing to have something ‘different’ in Guildford. Really good value - and the starters are amazing - I recommend sharing loads of starters like tapas.
