  • Wow! We are of Lebanese descent and the food was just as delicious as our grandmothers!! Some dishes were even better! One of the best meals I’ve ever had! The owner was so attentive and our server was wonderful! Can’t wait to go back! Favorite dishes: the grape leaves, lamb shank, moussaka, baklava and pistachio ice cream!
  • Amazing traditional Lebanese cuisine owned by super friendly Lebanese family . Artichoke and hummus were superb and lamb changed my opinion on how a lamb dish should taste, sooo good. Must go if you are in town. Also don’t miss on the desserts!
  • One of the most authentic Arabic cuisines we've had in the states! The kibbeh, fattoush, and grilled meats were excellent! The braised lamb was incredible too. The service was friendly and fast. Definitely worth eating at!
  • Easily the tastiest food I’ve had in South Carolina. A friend and I went in to snack on some falafel and hummus at the bar and loved it so much that we had to go for lunch the next day! This is an absolute must if you’re living in Charleston or only visiting. Even if you’re full, try the osmalieh for dessert. It’s light and the pistachio ice cream is homemade.
  • If you want the taste of Lebanon. Search no more, you won’t find it elsewhere! Each drink is tailored to create a modern style cocktail. A must visit if you are visiting or you live there.
