Booked hoping for a lovely Eastern Mediterranean treat. The music as on point but sadly was the only thing that went right that evening. Our hot starters were served frozen in the middle. Sent them back, got a replacement but a simple sorry would have...been nice. My chicken main was swimming in grease and partly uncooked. We had somewhere to be, otherwise I would have asked for a refund. The speed and level of service told me I would miss my event if I tried. Customer service was minimal, not once were we asked if all was OK (clearly it wasn't) and to get more drinks and the bill we had to ask several times. Such a let down.More

A must visit restaurant to enjoy with family and friends. A wide selection of wines and an array of mezze selection is a stand out point. Staff were very accommodating and the food was served very quick. The staff catered to any specific requests and...service was perfect. They have some delicious options in their menu and food is top notch. It's a highly recommended place and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening there.More

I love this restaurant I cannot get enough of it. I always go here with my friends for our Birthdays. Theres always so much food we cannot finish it so we have to take it home. The meat is so succulent and juicy all cooked...fresh on the charcoal grill made to order and comes to the table within 10 minutes. The management are so kind and accommodating. Always full of big smiles. They have a huge range of Lebanese wines. They also offer huge party events which I will book when I get married. Sometimes on Friday and Saturday it's hard to get a table but I dont mind waiting an hour outside in the que just because the food is so yummy and fresh. Because there was so much food on our table as we really spoilt ourselves and went all out we asked if our meat could be heated up in the microwave but they said no because they do not use them only to heat the flat bread. So they gave me another fresh charcoal hot chicken squewer for free. So kind of them. Sometimes I take my friends dog on a hot summers day to sit out the front for a lighter lunch, he even gets a free bit of meat and a bowl of water with lots of cuddles. I love these guys so much. I highly recommend. Best restaurant in Guildford. Five star all the way.More

If you're craving Lebanese food this is your place to go. The food is really delicious. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The service is great and the ambiance is a typical Lebanese vibe for family and friends.

I went their for a birthday dinner, the owner was hostile, food taste less and the Prosecco was bought from Aldi for £3.99 but was sold at £19.95. Aldi label still attached to bottle. Owner said he might have got it cheaper but can’t remember....No staff were available to return food and owner/ manager just argued with us. Previous complaint on trip advisor were from the table next to us. The bar staff informed us the meat was cooked in the morning then left out at room temp ALL day then microwaved per order. Extremely disappointed & avoid at all cost. Have been reported to a Surrey county council. Huge food and safety issue and complete waste of time and money. Can not stress enough DO NOT GOMore

WE have eaten here several times in the past and have enjoyed it. This time, however, it was a different story. We had the gourmet meal for two. The starters were average, the main was dry and plain awful. The waiter was not too sympathetic...to our complaints but did bring us a new main that was at least hot but just as dry. We will never go there again.More

Extremely popular place, so I’m glad we made a reservation….although they didn’t check our credentials when we arrived To be given an outdoor table, when we had a little one with us on a chilly October evening, was a bit strange, but it was OK...once we asked them to switch the heating on The initial waitress was all smiles and friendly enough, but not sure if her grasp of English was a strong point or she simply didn’t get it, but when I asked for a beer, I somehow knew it wasn’t coming We eventually had to wait until a manager type came over to take our order (after we had asked two other waitresses if we could place our order) Once that part was done, the food arrived super quick! The cold meze selection from the sharing platter was good, as was the huge amount of flat bread that came with The grilled selection would’ve been great, had they reduced their salt content by 90% Think we went through two jugs of water just to get through the meal Would we return, probably….if we couldn’t find another decent Middle Eastern restaurant nearbyMore

Visiting my son in Guildford .I thought we would return as on a previous visit probably a couple of years ago we had an excellent meal with wonderful service . Unfortunately yesterday was plain awful . Starters were acceptable however the mains were dreadful .My...lamb cutlets overcooked and tasteless my son's chicken grey and bland. What a pity .Did not want to make a fuss and spoil the evening with my son. Service was poor no check back . Restaurant was very quiet. Not sure if it has changed hands. Avoid at all costsMore

We had a meze, which was ok .. the food was nice but the meats were all too dry, I'm not sure if this was because they weren't fresh or over cooked .. nonetheless for me the price was way too high for the quality...of the food we received.More
