We lived in the Middle East for many years and this restaurant brought back many good memories. The food is authentic, service was friendly, my husband swooned over the baklava, the Arabic coffee with coriander took us back to many Lebanese dinners with good friends. We'll be back. Order a little bit of everything! And the Bakka Valley wine!
