    The Lamb chop is the best lamb I have ever had in my life. And the Falafels are incredible. It is 100% worth its price

    Just a really nice dining experience. Food for Vegans, vegetarians and carnivores (me) alike. Service was exceptional. Hummus and the babaganoush were the bomb

    Their daily specials are great. I also love their fresh juices, their humus and their famous Najib's Special.

    The lamb kibbeh is good, but very different from fried kibbeh if you are used to that.

    The chicken was a-freaking-maxing. I personally had the lamp (which was also good), gf had the chicken and I couldn't stop eating her entree.

    The falafel is fantastic. The Turkish coffee is a big pot, do don't drink it alone unless you like bouncing off walls.

    Najib's Special and the falafel. Get those for sure. The eggplant dish is also very easily vegan and fantastic. Every location has it a bit different which is great.

    Baba ghanouj is amazing, order it with cucumbers for a completely vegan/ gluten free option apposed to the pita bread. Their holistic drinks are the bombdotcom, and the sea scallops are delicious!

    Make sure your food has been adequately cooked before consuming. My prawns were raw. Come to think of it, the whole meat platter came out below safe holding temperatures :(

    The falafel plate is where it's at. Not only is this a great sit down restaurant, you can grab meals to go at the back.

    Chat to Victor, the owner, and try the daily smoothie concoction. Pig out to your heart's content on healthy lebanese cuisine. Come for the food, stay for the cucumber water.
