Wow - this food is the best Lebanese cuisine there is that we have tasted in the U.S. We had the opportunity to eat here and were Very excited about the food. We have eaten gourmet Lebanese food during our many trips in and out of Beirut, Lebanon and other Mediterranean This food reminded us of the wonderful dishes we had there. Allan Skaf told us they use his Grandmother's recipes - YUM, you have to dine there. My mouth is watering just writing about this wonderful food. A must try that we had is the Tabbouleh salad, Hommus, Baba Gannouj , Pita bread , cabbage salad, Chicken Schwarma, and the Baklava (the best we've eaten yet). The service was over-the-top, very friendly attentive staff - our waitress was very personable and ensured our stay would be a memorable one. We learned they have another restaurant in Glendale and one in the Sheman Oaks area - we sure could use a one in the South Bay. We'll be back.

A hole in the wall that has plenty flavor.

A place so small you could miss it, this is one great little Middle Eastern restaurant. We have been there enough times that we are greeted as close friends by the staff (having a wife of Lebanese descent doesn't hurt, either), and even though the decor is. . .interesting to say the least, the food here is pretty good for the price, and we always have plenty to take home. The hummus and tabouli is excellent, and if you can find a place to park, you will find it worth the trip.

I love to eat out and I am writing a lot of reviews. It is a nice way to share with others information about good & bad places to eat out. This place is one of the most disappointing. To begin with: this place is not clean. Pieces of garbage and napkins on the floor all over. The food is really not that great. Most of the grill items came to our table burned. One item Kafta tasted like a brick. Totally burned and dry. The beef Shurma tasted like it was on the grill for several days In this place you do not get what you pay for.

This place is okay but the food at Daphne's is much better even though it is a chain. If you are in Glendale then the galleria is not that far away and Daphne's is a better choice. There is also no parking in Glendale streets because Armenian's have a lot of cars.

Kaleb don't know what he's talking about. You want Greek? go to Greece. This is LEBANESE food at it's best. Price is very reasonable, food quality and temperature is the best, try the grilled shrimps, and the atmosphere is warm and comfortable. I went to the GLENDALE restaurant in which they just opened and the setting is one of the best i've been in. YOU GOTTA LOVE IT!!

This is a Lebanese, not a Greek restaurant. Don't go expecting Greek! Go there for the best Middle Eastern shawerma (beef and chicken), kefta, falafel and do not forget to order their wonderful cabbage salad. This place puts Zankou to shame! This is Lebanese food the way it should be made. While the restaurant's decor is not "LA-Chic". The service more than makes up for it. It's a wonderful time at a marvelous price! Don't miss it!
