Some samples of an incorrect service almost "ruined" our meal. I'll talk about the good things first. The food is really good: the falafels are tasty and I had one of the most delicious salads I've ever had, the Fattoush. And if you think you need a side dish, the "Lentil Rice" was really different and tasty.

The environment is really cool and they have a nice terrace with a view over the Escalators. You may have to wait some minutes to get a table, so try to go early.

About the incorrect service: First, when we sat at the table, a lady told us "I'll bring some water while you see the menu". Well, that water we didn't even ask for, was the famous Acqua Panna, sold in many restaurants in Hong Kong, that costs around 60/70HKD. The bottle came already open, so we thought we couldn't refuse it. They kept filling up our almost full glasses, trying to empty the bottle and to get us to buy another one. But we already knew the thing, and for the second bottle we asked for a bottle of tub water that we saw all the other tables around us were having - it was not good, but it's drinkable and does not cost a fortune.

Then, they insisted on the "special" appetizer of the night, which was some kind of expensive meat dish, and we kept saying we didn't want it.

Anyway, it's a good place with delicious food.

First time having Lebanese food in Hong Kong. We ordered Pan fried Haloumi , Roasted Cauliflower, Hummus and Baba Ganoush. The dips go with warm pita bread, the haloumi is honey gazed and slightly charred, so delicious!! The cauliflower is huge and spiced, which is ok.

The staff are very friendly, attentive and friendly.


FYI. They don't take reservations. We went there at a Friday's night, and waited for about 30 mins to get a table. Just leave your phone number to the staff and they give you a ring once the table is ready.

The food was incredible, we got food to go and they were super helpful. The almond falafel was amazing, as was the cucumber labneh. My friend has special dietary needs, and they were super helpful and accommodating to get her the best meal possible.

Although we couldn't be accommodated immediately, we agreed on a 20 minute return. Our daughter left her contact details and was actually contacted within 10 minutes. Having obtained her first name, this was used throughout the evening when checking if all was fine with the meal. A nice touch! All staff were helpful and pleased to help, not only those directly involved with our table. Food was excellent, particularly the skewered chicken. The overall price was a little on the high side, mainly due to each medium sized glass of red house wine costing the equivalent of £10. The fact that bottled water was offered, and only later realising the high cost of this also, did not help.

Hi 643sw1,

We're so glad you joined us earlier this year, and we hope you and your family enjoyed your visit to Hong Kong.

Service is something we pride ourselves on at Maison Libanaise, and we're thrilled you enjoyed your experience with us. It's great to hear you enjoyed the dishes you tried - the Shish Taouk (chicken skewers) is one of our crowd-pleasing favourites.

We hope to see you next time you're in town!

Best,
Sashi
