  • This wonderful restaurant has been our favorite for a long time. If you're on King Street...never pass it by...the food is superb...and the environment is friendly and warm. We often drive in from the beach to enjoy their hospitality and authentic, fresh ingredient laden menu. Try Leylas...You'll be glad you did! PS...the Leylas Chicken kabob is incredible!
  • Beautiful, modern decorated restaurant. Great, authentic dishes. Friendly staff. Loved the chat with the owner(?). Menu isn’t too extensive but sufficient choice to find something to my liking. Some more fruit options for the dessert would have been nice.
  • Really enjoyed our dinner at Leyla! Food was very good. The staff are very nice and welcoming. We are vegetarian and had many options!
