15 Amazing Lebanese Restaurants

What’s the tastiest, most tantalizing Lebanese restaurant in town? We couldn’t decide, so Zomato did the hard work for us!

Abd El Wahab

“The food here is delicious. I suggest the chicken liver with pomegranate and any type of fatteh. The freshly baked bread is also a must-have. The atmosphere is relaxed and high end; perfect for a business lunch or a family get together. The staff is very friendly and attentive and the service is very quick and professional.”

Al Halabi

“Halabi is by far the most authentic Lebanese restaurant in Lebanon, if not in the Middle East. You can start with the mezze, from the hummus to shanklish to tomatoes with garlic to the special mouhammara that is a must try (spices with ka3k, simsom and walnut). If you are a cheese lover then you must order baked cheese rolls. Also the mashed potatoes with onions are yummy. The castalletta and the grilled meat (ask for the tourbali ones) are the best.”

Al Sultan Brahim

“Al Sultan Brahim is still keeping the standards of Lebanese cuisine high. In it is new location, It has two floors, the first one indoors, while the second is on the rooftop; both have the capacity to accommodate over 800 guests. The
menu is comprised of the Lebanese mezze and some fish dishes (sautéed shrimp, fish platter, breaded fish, crab salad). Everything tastes really good and fresh. This place is ideal for a family lunch or dinner.”

“Wow, wouldn’t be enough for this amazing renovated Lebanese restaurant previously known as Diwan El Sultan. The place was full, we were six guests, and had probably 70% of the menu from cold and hot appetizers to mixed grill and shawarma dishes. There is a wide selection of hummus which they take pride in; the preparation takes three days. We had the Akkar and the Downtown Hummus and both were yummy.”

“This is without doubt one of the best Lebanese restaurants. The food is just yummy! Everything tastes great from the tabbouleh, to the vine leaves, to the grilled meat, which is by the way super fresh and tasty. The raw meat is also super fresh and tastes divine. The cheese rolls are mouthwatering. And the list goes on. There was nothing I tried and didn’t like; even the bread was fresh and hot, straight from the oven. The service is quick, the staff are attentive, very active and always hurrying to serve you.”
