What an excellent cozy small home-cooked restaurant. It's classy and delicious. Very fun for a small family dinner or a small cozy get-together with friends. Sharing starter plates of spreads and dips, tasty drinks, delicious ample main course servings, and a nice smell of charcoal grill fire makes this a great choice.

Very good food, fresh and tasty. Nice team effort for service, smiley and friendly. It's a cosy Restaurant, not Fancy, family welcome. Since it is in a semi-basement, thé odors of thé vinagor was a bit pronounced, but you Forget it quickly, don't be stopped by thé first impression, it is worthed. Good value for your money. Thanks gang!

So nice to find this tiny, cozy place in the heart of the shopping district! We were thrilled to dig into our favorite Lebanese specialties - foul medamas, muhammara, toum, kibbeh, etc. The mixed dips & grillades plates are a great way to sample everything...all expertly made. Only (minor) complaint: the brunch specialties weren’t quite as interesting and varied as the rest of the menu.

Having been to many Middle Eastern and Mediterranean restaurants, I found the food lacking. Pitas that looked identical to the ones available in the grocery store for $1, withered and deflated grape leaf wraps, and the hummus and spinach balls lacked any sort of spice. The Turkish coffee was alright as well as the muhammura. I would not recommend this place to anyone looking for authentic Middle Eastern food, but it's a decent place for a night out if your wallet is tight and your at a bar in the neighbour

1, Don't respect reservation!!! Asked for specific table but got the worst in the place: right at kitchen (open)
with kitchen noise and traffic, PLUS in direct line of blasts of -22 wind chill each time door opened!!!!!!!

2. Went to order a dish we know to share - only to be told - after looking at menu for 15 min. - they were out of that item!!

3. Ordered a standby of moussaka which came without eggplant and only semi-cooked tomatoes and onions - YUCK!!!

After 3 previous visits, will not return!!!!!

Second visit was just as satisfying as the first. I eat very little meat but come here for the delicious grilled chicken skewers and Lebanese mezze. Shared the chicken and some mezzes with a friend, we each had a glass of wine and left full and thoroughly satisfied. Although the restaurant serves meat vegan and gluten-free diners can find plenty of options for a tasty meal.

What a delight to find a lebanese spot in Montreal! My father's family is from the middle east and finding this authentic spot was so heart warming. The fac that they could make kibbe nayyeh - the best tartare - was already a win. The service, especially from the two young ladies, was exceptional. I recommend the tasting dips to start, followed by the kibbe nayyeh and if you still have room for more, at least have a serving of fattouche. Top it with some minted tea. I will tell anyone I know going to Meontreal to stop by!

Nous avons eu un excellent service rapide et les plats étaient tous plus délicieux les uns que les autres. Seul bémol l'espace réduite du restaurant. Difficile de gérer 6 assiettes sur une table pour deux. Ce n'est pas un resto pour prendre son temps le samedi soir... ça roule!

The evening was a disaster. Service, non existent. The poor stressed out waitress gave up and left the restaurant. Total chaos ensued.

30 min after our order was taken, the pitcher of Arak for two arrived with exactly 6 partially melted ice cube in a small bowl.

The mezze course arrived more than half an hour after the Arak. Frankly, you can buy better at Adonis.

The owner eventually arrived from home too late to make a difference. He did tried his best to put on a brave face.

Oh, and our main course was never sent to the kitchen.

What else can I say?

Had a reservation, we were seated relatively timely. Then given lunch menus because not enough dinner menus. Sat for 10 minutes before water was dropped off to us. That was the last interaction with staff before we left to go find a restaurant with actual service. Extremely disappointed.

The food is tasty but the portions are small for the price. The main courses do not come with salad or starch, so you have to order rice or potatoes separately. The garlic potatoes and shish taouk are very yummy. Kebabs were rather bland by comparison, and tabouli salad was too sour.
