Located in the heart of Dar es Salaam, this restaurant has a lot of potential - but unfortunately the owners focus is elsewhere. From un-removed Christmas decor, staffs phone chargers in public places, to paint peeling off the wall, staff with BO issues, presented with...1 menu for a table of 2, no cutlery when food arrived, waiter that was not able to write down our order, and cold bread & average food, this place needs to revamp every aspect of service delivery! This place is seriously hungry for vision and direction - the staff would really enjoy management that cares. For now I recommend giving them a wide berth until they get their focus.More

Absolutely sumptuous food, enjoyed to the full! Will definitely go there again and again! Recommend this place. We were staying at a hotel about an hour away, and they even delivered when we had a gathering.

The food and service is very good and worth a visit. Parking is an issue if you are visiting with your own vehicle. Staff is friendly and know the menu to explain everything to someone that is not use to Lebanese food. The time spend...waiting on the dishes is worth it and can not for my next visit.More

We visited for dinner with colleagues. It’s my 1st experience to have Lebanese foods in Dar, and it became the precious opportunity to enjoy foods and time. The service is always good, and the clean environment was nicely enjoyable. Mezze platter is good for sharing...with some persons as a starter, especially some sources is suitable for every foods. I expect that you can also have precious time if you have never been to here. Let’s try and be addicted to Lebanese!!More

Service is problematic. My order was forgotten, and the wait was basically doubled as a result. Also, although it's pretty common to be out of things in Tanzania, they were out of ALL the cakes on the dessert menu. The food is OK. The appetizers...are very generous. The hummus on the shawarma wrap wasn't too great. The ambience is nice.More

Compared to other places in Dar the portions are sufficient but not BIG. The food is tasty and fresh despite the fact that the place seems to be very quiet in the evening. Special requests are understood and delivered upon .. Worth a visit or...2 ..More

I have always enjoyed their food since the first time I visited. There was a time when they were located below Heritage Motel and I used to get accommodation there just to enjoy food. However, for the last two visits it seems things have changed....They have shifted to a new place, the interior theme has changed, the previous one looked more classy, the new one looks very loud, multicolored walls and untidy. Quality of food was average. My favorite chicken wings and BBQ chicken sizes are smaller than before. The wings looked liked chopped pieces of small chicken. Prices are still reasonable. The management needs to consult the previous owner/manager as to how it was operated earlier. Service was much better, cleaner and nice ambiance.More

Excellent food but very much let down by incredibly slow service! They brought one drink at a time and also one dish of food at a time with large gaps inbetween.

Very limited menu choices & food is unfairly overpriced for such bad food quality and there food delivery packaging isn’t great either + I spent the rest of my day in the loo
