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.

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.

Disappointed we had to wait 5 mins to be seated despite the restaurant being half empty at the early hour of the evening. Thereafter we were exquisitely surprised at the dining experience. The waiters were so courteous, the food both beautifully presented and tasty beyond measure. A fabulous evening meal. Cannot wait to return.

This was our second visit. Our first visit with a friend one lunch time was so enjoyable that we decided to book for Mother's Day and take our daughter and two teenage granddaughters.
We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food is so tasty and beautifully served. We had excellent service from the all the staff despite the restaurant being very busy.
We will certainly be visiting again.

Went here for the first time as part of our Sapphire Wedding Anniversary celebrations. This will not be our last visit. The biggest problem was deciding what to eat and we both settled on the lamb cutlets. These were sublime. The service was friendly and helpful from the moment we entered the restaurant right up until we left after a great dining experience. If unsure of what to choose we found the staff were willing and happy to clarify some of the ingredients we were unfamiliar with. Overall a great evening out!

Having eaten at Baroushka with friends before, we had no problems in selecting it for our wedding anniversary meal. Service was, and is very attentive without being over-intrusive. The intro. mezze was a super way of sharing appetisers, and was a delicious selection; not too much, not too little, and in addition very appealing to the eye.
My wife's sea bass with vegetable quinoa, and her favourite, rocket, looked superb, and came up to her expectations, whilst my Turkish style chicken with smoked peppers, dried lemon and a side dish of Persian rice was very good indeed, and not overpowered by the seasoning, which was very subtle.
We skipped the desserts, but finished our meal with mint tea for Janice, which to her pleasant surprise came unsweetened (had mint tea in Marrakesh which was over-laden with sugar) and for me a very sound black coffee.
If there were any criticism, and it's pretty trivial, is that the lighting at table was a teeny bit over subdued . Other than that everything else was just about spot-on.
Thank you, Baroushka; we'll be back soon.

Wife and I went here for a Valentine's meal using a Groupon voucher which allowed us a two-course "feast for two" for £17. I can't remember what we ordered for the starter, but the sharing platter, complete with roasted and fresh veggies, was divine and I'd recommend it any day of the week.
