(Ottawa, Canada) • Family style restaurant serving authentic Lebanese cuisine and Mediterranean food with skillfully prepared dishes cooked to perfection.
Ambiance: Spacious place with a lot of natural light due to a nice atrium style room with several tables and booths. Minimum decor on the walls but with a clean look.
Service: Excellent service! We got a table right way and our waitress was very friendly, pleasant and helpful. She was fast taking our order, bringing our drinks with the side veggies and the pita breads, and the bill after. She came to check in on us and refilled our glasses without us needing to ask for it.
Cleanliness: Our booth, utensils and glasses were spotless.
Food wait time: Even though the place had quite a few people there it didn’t take much time at all.
Food presentation: Very appetizing all of them! I couldn’t wait to try the Fateh as it looked amazing.
Portion: Though it’s on the small side, we were satisfied with our orders.
Taste: We had Fateh (definition from their website: Freshly cooked chickpea with a mix of yogurt and tahini on a bead of pita chips topped with pin nuts), Ras Asfour (Diced beef tenderloin cooked with onion and lemon juice topped with fresh coriander) and also beef omelet, and I, honestly don’t know which one was the most delicious. Such unique flavor! It was the first time I tried Fateh and it’s my new favorite dish. There is also a non-vegetarian option of Fateh as well on the menu and I will definitely try that next time. The Ras Asfour had the perfect seasoning and cooked to perfection; the beef was very tender! Quality of all food was top notch! Coffee was also amazing, strong and on point.
Price: On the high side. Worth every cent!
