    The food here is great. Fattoush, shish taouk and fries with hot mayo sauce are the best. Hookah was good.

    Byblos has a clublike vibe, with a touch of the Middle East. The menu is a bit schizophrenic: Greek and Middle Eastern dishes cooked by one chef and French, Italian and Spanish fare by another. Read more · August 3, 2014

    Can't stand this place. Tiny and crazy crowded, unfriendly staff and overpriced drinks. It's a shame there aren't better options for hookah in Philly.

    You can mix any flavor with mint and it tastes AMZING. IT was an overall great experience, DJ was awesome. Didn't try the food cause we ate somewhere else. I will definitely be back 👍

    Went on a Sat night drinks are fairly priced but this place is way too small and it gets packed

    Even though the hookah is sub-par, the food and drinks are really good.

    The special mint hookah was good but the hookah itself was cracked and leaked water. Food was so so and the coal sheesh they charge you 25-30 dollars for a hookah at least u can use good coal

    I always thought my voice was raspy the day after Byblos because of the hookah, but I realized it wasn't the sweet hookah at all-it was me trying to talk/yell over the music. Don't come here to talk.
