“The sushi is really special since it’s prepared by the Lebanese passionate and talented chef Joe! Shrimp tempuras and trio salad are recommended. Dessert is so good as well. Since the chef is the owner, you really feel he’s doing this with passion and he takes his time to prepare it without considering it a duty.”

“When it comes to sushi I rate based on three criteria: first the rice (if it’s crunchy or well done), second the freshness of the ingredients and last is food presentation, and to be honest they nailed a 5* on every criterion: presentation was perfect the rice was perfectly done and all ingredients were fresh.”

LE SUSHI BAR

“Excellent food – high quality ingredients and very professional staff. Remains a pioneering Japanese cuisine in the heart of Beirut. I always start by ordering salmon tartar, sashimi salads, seared tuna, crab salad, edamame, and leave less space in my stomach for maki rolls! Trick to eat less maki rolls is to order many #proteintreats appetizers and share them.”
