    Vegetarian platter is nice.
  • Alexandru C.
    Do yourself a favour and get a Vegetarisch Teller. The meat is good, but all the various pickles and salads are what Lebanese cuisine really shines at.
  • Cristina C.
    Nice place, always crowded, but the service is fast and good. Really great food! Try the chicken shwarma.

    The mixed plates (that you can customize) deliver an explosion of different tastes to your mouth. If you want something smaller and cheaper, you can easily choose a sandwich instead.

    The shawarma is one of the best I've ever had.. But go for a plate of as much different things together, the flavours are amazing. Do not expect a nice quiet place: this is yummy quick food.

    Der Falafel war sehr gut, die vegetarische Platte war sättigend und abwechslungsreich. Ein Glas Wein für 5€ ist aber übertrieben teuer für einen Imbiss. Service war zuvorkommend.

    Das Essen ist vergleichsweise teuer, viel Dekoration und zu wenig "Substanz". Das Schawarma ist leider nicht immer von gleichbleibend guter Qualität. Da helfen auch die tollen Blumen überall nicht....
