We are huge fans of Lebanese food and have eaten in many high quality authentic restaurants in London Uk. In Milan we have tried various places but have always left disappointed. When we saw the great reviews for Beirut we were excited to try it.
Location is small, clean and simple. Upon arrival we were welcomed with a lacklustre hello and we're showed to our table without any particular warmth or enthusiasm. We saw that most tables were eating the tasting menu but being huge fans of certain plates we ordered a la carte on or own without any attention given or questions asked by our waiter and owner most likely. The highlight of our meal was the falafel. By far the best I have ever eaten. Moist inside and golden and crunchy outside. The hummous with meat was also excellent. Tabouleh a a bit too vinegary and not chopped finely enough. The chicken taouk was borderline dry and not balanced in taste. I was looking forward to the melt in your mouth chicken we are used to having but was disappointed. Bottle of Lebanese white wine was good, unfortunately they don't offer Lebanese wine by the glass. Ordered coffee at the end of the meal and never received it so we got up, and paid the bill and we're never asked if we enjoyed the meal or anything. I wouldn't go back, not even for takeaway falafel.
