  • The workers are so friendly! The owner is also the chef, and every time we've eaten here, she's come out to check that our meal was up to our standards! The food was so delicious, excellent quality and so worth the price!
  • Leyla is a hidden gem in Charleston's dining scene. The food is absolutely delicious, the service is impeccable, and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. Dolley, DANNY, MIKE, and BROOK made me feel at home with family on my first night traveling from Texas I started my meal with the hummus and lebne, which were both perfectly creamy and flavorful. For my main course, I had the beef tenderloin kebab, which was fall-off-the-bone tender and cooked to perfection. The accompanying bismati rice were also cooked perfectly and seasoned well. I escaped baklava, which looked flaky and sweet. Calorie counting. The service at Leyla was excellent. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and made excellent recommendations. He was also very attentive and made sure that we had everything we needed. The atmosphere at Leyla is warm and inviting. The restaurant is decorated in a traditional Lebanese style, with colorful tiles and intricate woodwork. There is also a beautiful outdoor patio. Overall, I had an amazing experience at Leyla.

  • The evening was perfection for my friends and me! The staff was so friendly and professional although we butchered some names they were good sports. We started off with drinks and cheese appetizer. All 4 of us had different entrees and shared and they were ALL so delicious and beyond my expectation. We ended with Lebonese coffee & shared 2 desserts they impressed us all. I will definitely be back to try some more!
