We take inspiration from pretty much anywhere we can find it from the Arabian peninsula, but with a bias towards the ingredients and flavours of the Middle East, North Africa and across the Ottoman. Whilst our cuisine stays true to the food from these regions, we also pull from more familiar Western cooking techniques in the execution of what we do in true Lebanese style.

We had a lovely early evening meal here, which was excellent value for money. The staff were really friendly and very efficient and recommended some delicious and interesting Lebanese wines.

Absolutely LOVELY place - such friendly and quick service and attention to detail without being in your face...totally recommend 200%!!
Only draw back - ridiculous music...sorry! All you could hear was the boom boom of the base. So unnecessary and had it been authentic music it would have worked so much better, provided not so loud!
You come to a restaurant to chat and raised voices just bring up the volume and noise....BUT don't let that put you off. The place is a treasure. Lucky Salisbury!!

Fantastic food! It was very busy so service for our drinks was a bit slow. Our table had a draught coming from the brick wall behind us, the was difficult to for us and the staff to explain. They offered to move us to another table, but we fixed it by putting one of the menus by the wall to redirect the draught! The staff are lovely and the restaurant very atmospheric.

Pre pantomime meal for 7 aged 2 to 67. Delicious food - really enjoyed mixed mezzes, both hot & cold. Large servings - choose early evening menu (2 courses for £10 if you're not hugely hungry).

Good food, but setting and atmosphere more for a romantic dinner for couples. We had a few minor issues as we went for dinner with visiting elderly family and my 20 month old.

I booked a table for 6 through here on a weekday, requesting a highchair as well. Got there as scheduled, the staff clearly didn't know of my booking, and didn't offer a highchair, I had to request it after being seated for 15 mins. They have not got baby changing facilities, but staff were happy for us to change on the sofa. The dim light in the restaurant meant my elderly relatives had to use torches on their phones to read the menu.

Though we had a shaky start, we were very satisfied with the food served. We ordered a hot mezze and a Cauliflower Sharawma as starters which tasted amazing. Between us we had lamb shank, chicken kebab, sausage platter, stuffed aubergine with quorn, which all tasted fantastic. I had the aubergine, which I would have liked it to be baked for even longer and softer, but overall I am quite happy with it.

We only ordered two desserts, the rose and pistachio cheesecake is to die for in our opinion, and the dessert platter is worth a try if you like to explore different flavours.

From the second the door opened into the restaurant, we were made to feel welcome.

Three of us dined, all sampling differing starters, mains and deserts- plus a rather good bottle of wine.

Our dishes we all beautiful presented and in good portions - our compliments to the chef.

At all times our host was attentive, but without being overly fussy around us.

All in all a wonderful meal, excellent value for money too.

Thank you.

Delicious food and great service. Despite their being a large party in, the noise and music wasn't overwhelming and we didn't wait long for food, which is hard to achieve. We opted for the lonely meze so we could try lots of different dishes and they were all yummy. Really good choice of mocktails – it's hard to find something that's not too sugary but tastes good when you don't drink alcohol. Lovely authentic tea experience too, loved the traditional pot and glasses.

Had a wonderful, authentic 3 course Mediterranean meal here, with a drink and a coffee.

The service was sharp, the food plenty and tasty, the restaurant, though busy, was relaxed and the ambiance was fine. Could even hear to have a conversation.

Staff was friendly and the restaurant was very clean.

An excellent Lebanese restaurant, a real asset in Salisbury and a delight to visit. Two slight reservations. First, the music. I don’t like music in restaurants: it’s unnecessary and intrusive: if you don’t like it, you can’t get away from it. But the staff were understanding and turned it down and put on something less intrusive. Second, the service was, if anything, too solicitous: one of us was steered away from our menu choice to something else. Maybe this was through experience of people not liking that particular item, but it was unnecessary. Overall though, I strongly recommend Baroüshka.

For a special occasion this is a very nice place to go and if you are not a vegetarian beer drinker there is plenty of choice.
My wife and I had visited Baroushka a couple of years ago for my Birthday and we had enjoyed the experience very much. A wide and varied menu with plenty of vegetarian options { we are both vegetarian} and an interesting selection of bottled beers was on offer.
This time the first thing we noticed was how much the menu had shrunk with fewer vegetarian options than before. and a reduced selection of beers. The next thing that struck us was how much the prices had increased. Whilst this is not uncommon we felt that £3.90 for a small beer was excessive and this was the cheapest
Having said all that the food was good and the service excellent and we enjoyed our time there.

I had a lovely lunch at Baroushka last week. Having worked in the hotel trade in the Middle East for many years I was hoping to find some of my favourite Lebanese dishes on the menu but didn't. Nonetheless the Moroccan kofta that I had was a delight, really tasty and filling.
The restaurant interior has been well designed and the toilets the cleanest I've encountered in a public place in a long time!
It is a short walk from the main car park and very close to the Playhouse and City Hall. Perfect for an evening out. I would definitely return and recommend anyone to give it a try.
