“Over-priced!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2016

I went for dinner to this restaurant the other day with my two teenage kids and husband. Saturday night, but it was very quiet. We could get a table without a reservation although we did book online. Friendly and polite staff, but food was way too pricey and portions were ridiculously tiny. Our bill came to over a 1000$ and this without any alcohol or drinks except for one bottle of still water. Each Pita bread, (one tiny small less than 4inch diameter) was 12$ and with each small tiny portion of dip, they serve one small pita bread. The food tasted good, so no complaints on that front. But would I pay that price for it again, NO WAY!! Lots of choices for the vegetarian but except for the tabbouleh, all other portions for unfairly small for their price. The Baklava was served very fancy, but 8-9 tiny tiny pieces cut up and arranged stylishly on the plate, is not what one expects. I have eaten better Mediterranean food and paid much less for it elsewhere in Hong Kong, so sadly, I would not recommend this to anyone except those to whom money is no consequence.

“Wonderful food and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2016 via mobile

This is a real gem in Kowloon. Fantastic food prepared by the owner/executive chef Tariq. Delicious vegetarian dishes but with some chicken and lamb options. My personal favorite is the lamb kufte with tomatoes and potatoes. Tweety is the dining room manager who is extremely attentive and has excellent recommendations. She and Tariq are a great team. Love this place. Will go back many many times. Highly recommended.

“Lebanese Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2016

The only restaurant in Hong Kong with a large selection of Vegetarian and Jain food. Fine dining. Excellent food. But very, very expensive. Despite being on the 4th floor of a commercial building. The food is extremely pricey whether for lunch or dinner. Does the food justify the price? Not really. Worst drinks you can order in Hong Kong. Avoid their drinks if possible like lemon tea or milk shake which is prepared by them. Bottled drinks are regular like other restaurants but the drinks are very expensive. So unless it's a special occasion and your want to splurge then you can go here or pray to God someone invites you over for a meal at this restaurant!! Too pricey....

“Average middle eastern”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2016 via mobile

I was looking for a middle eastern food in HK and notice a sign on the street. Inside a building, little hard to find. Nice decor.
I ordered the chicken kebab, the chicken was over cooked and burned, I could tell they used the plastic loading system on the skewer (fast way to load the skewer by putting all the chicken in plastic box and then cutting all at once).
It make the meat too tight on the skewer and the individual pieces don't cook on the flames evenly.
I was disappointed. The pita bread was not fresh and felt like it was old, maybe even few days.
Not a good representation to middle eastern restaurant.
