About Comptoir Libanais - Manchester

The food at Comptoir is fresh, healthy, honest and affordable. We wake up early to provide customers with unique Lebanese breakfasts to eat in or take away; offering everything from organic yoghurt topped with pomegranate and orange blossom water, porridge and -our favourite- halloumi cheese, crispy onion and tomato tortillas.
Visit us for lunch and dinner as we serve our guests all types of interesting and colourful dishes, including hot and cold mezze – perfectly sized for sharing- wraps, salads, tagines, grills and Mana’esh (Lebanese style pizzas).
For dessert, nothing is more authentic than the sweet taste of baklawa – Lebanese pastries in a variety of flavours such as date filled semolina and walnut filled flaky pastry. All products can be packaged up and enjoyed on the go.

Fancied some Middle Eastern food and although this is a chain we really enjoyed the food. We had a mixed meze for 1 and Kibbe and spicy sausage. Then a flat bread with minced lamb between us. Plenty of food. Finished with mixed baklava. The Lebanese house wine was fine too
Nice service especialy by a lovely Columbian lady who explained everything to us.

Very courteous and genuinely caring service . The starters were all good, the flatbreads were excellent. Ingredients were of a good quality and all the food was well seasoned and presented. We thought the portion sizes were just right too. Definitely good value for money as most mains were priced below that found in similar restaurants. Will visit again soon.

Something a little different and well worth a visit -in fact more than one as we plan to go again soon! We had three courses and wine, all of which we'd recommend. The house wine was well priced as is the food. The Mezze starter with an addition from the inter-mezze was especially good and would be fine for lunch. (but don't miss the puddings)

The cantina itself was clean and well presented, and the staff were (mostly) very warm and helpful.

Tasty, authentic food. We came as a group of 3 on a Friday night just for a few sharing plates and drinks.

We had a booking for three friends for a Saturday evening 8:15pm. We loved it. We had never eaten Lebonese food before so have no marker to compare it against but we thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful.
Really great food, it was hard to choose what we fancied. It was excellent value with quality ingredients, plenty to eat and all for a good price. The atmosphere was good for us and the staff were friendly. Would really recommend it.

Brought my visiting Cypriot parents to Comptoir for lunch on a bank holiday Monday and they loved it!
A couple of big group tables in, a couple on a date, a family birthday and some friends eating and sampling the shsisha pipes in the covered smoking area.
Decor is vibrant, staff are attentive (but not in your face about it!)

Definitely recommend!

I came for an evening date night with my boyfriend, lots of seating available so it wasn't a squeeze on a Friday night. We shared the mezze to start, this was soooo tasty and the best falafel I've ever tried!

The mains were delicious too. I will definitely be back and have already recommended to friends. The bonus is that the prices are low, fantastic value.
