Good overall, love the decor, mixed meze was great, my chicken tagine was dry unfortunately.
I made a booking for 10 persons, it was a leaving meal for me which I wanted at my favourite restaurant ... we had to wait a the reception for 5 minutes to be acknowledged and then they had to get a table ready when I made the booking the day before ?? limited on time so this waiting just ate into it everyone seemed to enjoy the food when it arrived ... my chicken wings could of been a big more well done... skin was very slimy and underdone
My husband and I had the most wonderful evening here on Saturday, the restaurant was buzzing with atmosphere when we arrived, filled with couples, families and friends all having a great evening.
Even though it was busy our waiter Mauro, was friendly, professional and tentative, taking time to explain in details what was on the menu and periodically checking if we were ok.
The food was well presented and delicious, with a great selection, especially the Mezze Platter, giving a variety of tastes and flavours, we both enjoyed.
We would definitely recommend this restaurant in Manchester due to great atmosphere, customer service and food, thank you for a wonderful evening!
The staff were charming, helpful and friendly.
We shared a cold mezze starter plate which was delicious however we were all disappointed with our main courses. Two of us had different tagines which were both quite dry and one had a lamb burger which wasn't great either. This was a real disappointment after a great start. Would like to try again but this time would stick to a selection of mezze dishes.
Loved the decor and ambience.
Unfortunately I am not sure enough to wholeheartedly recommend to friends.
Food was excelled. Service a little bit slow but it was worth to wait
Food was amazing! Everyone loved it
Staff were lovely although it was very busy and worth tipping as they still manage to be attentive despite all the full tables. The vegetarian options are great and the food was very tasty and well put together. Great portion sizes, we couldn't actually finish everything. Drinks menu is extensive and lots of nice mocktails for those who don't drink. Great location as The Alchemist is just round the corner for post dinner drinks. Great value for money.
We booked a table of four for a very special occasion and informed the restaurant of this in advance (my two best friends were getting married the next day). The restaurant was terribly understaffed and although the girl waiting the tables did her very best (she was on her own!) the service was painfully slow all night, our desert did not arrive (yet was still on the bill) and the restaurant made no attempt to mark the special occasion (even just an acknowledgement of the special occasion would have been nice).
The food is great at Comptoir but I was so disappointed by the service this week that I will not be going again and certainly wouldn't recommend it for a special occasion.
Tried here for the first time and was impressed. The menu is not huge but caters for many tastes, and the pricing is very good. The food tasted really nice and is a good place to eat for many occasions.
Unique and memorable restaurant. My favourite place to dine when in Manchester. Enjoy the Lebanese beer Almaza every time as well as the baklava.
The food was lovely, best lebanese I've had in the UK, but the service was terrible, we waited about 15 minutes for drinks each time we ordered a round, however the food arrived quite quickly, sort out the slow service and I'll come back.
We felt that adding a service charge was a bit much as the staff really didn't earn it on the night.
We had a very nice meal. The food was good and there was plenty of choice. The service great too.
Excellent food and friendly attentive staff. Would recommend!
It was ok
Lamb shank was very good
Lovely food and a great atmosphere. Staff were great. I would definitely come again.
Great place to eat. Good food. Great choice of different types of food. Not expensive. Have set menus as well which were great value and good choices available. Nice choice of drinks too. Great decor inside. Authentic. Went with 5 other friends. Good for afternoon lunch or early dining. Great central location. Will return.
Impromptu visit with my eldest son. Lovely food, lovely service, lovely atmosphere would definitely recommend and will be returning in the very near future.
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.
A wonderful experience as it always is, amazing food, good service and delightful surroundings, a must for fans of Lebanese food
'Middle Eastern' theme gives a good atmosphere. Food was nice enough (we had Mixed Grill and Tagine - both of which were more than acceptable). Portions were just right - not gargantuan as they are in a lot of places.
It was maybe a little expansive for what it is, at £25 a head for main courses only and with two drinks each and service included. I'd go again though.
Amazing food, good atmosphere and our large group had an enjoyable time however the overall experience was totally let down by the drinks service. It took 45 minutes to receive our drinks even with numerous chasers. Totally unacceptable! If they sort that out, I’d be happy to recommend.
Gorgeous food, great service. Overall a lovely experience, will definitely return.
Starters were really nice, mixed ones and a couple of tapas type ones. My main course was a chicken wrap and that was literally it, no side salad and quite bland, disappointing.
My husband had the lamb shank tagine which was tough and fatty and we had to send it back.
Our friends food was really nice though.
Maybe we picked a bad day. I would try it again, the ingredients in the starters all looked very fresh and were nice.
Service was good and they were apologetic about the food.
Lovely menu & friendly relaxed atmosphere. Plenty of seating. Would recommend!
Nice place for a quick bite and some tasty dishes and good red wine. However the service was really poor, we had to ask multiple times for things like water for the table, our food came out at completely different times and it’s pretty over priced. Our mains were average at best.
Amazing food and great service! I had a selection of hot mezze and it was very tasty!! Also, lovely setting and very friendly, attentive staff! I will definitely be back and spreading the word...
amazing food as always. Love the vibe and the deco seeing old Arabic stars on the walls especially Sabah.
Very quiet but not the restaurant fault, but the music was appalling cheap copies of famous xmas songs and very loud
Lovely atmosphere. Great service and amazing food. Would definitely come again.
Lovely food very authentic. Great service and vibrant atmosphere
Great service from the team and very tasty food. Will be coming back
Wonderful restaurant. The staff were all lovely and attentive. The food was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend. We are looking forward to returning.
Love this place, food is always great
Had my uncle 26th birthday and the stuff made it a day to remember. The manager was supper nice and friendly even tho it got so busy on Monday the manager kept coming in to check if we need anything. He needs to be recognised for his hard work
Great food and venue. Our only minor complaint really was that the shared mixed dips for starters didn’t include anywhere near enough pitta bread. We asked for more and got the same again, which was still not enough. Having said this, our third request was met with a much bigger portion, and we were not charged extra.
My third visit in as many months, and every trip has been great. The place is usually very busy weekend evenings. So remember to book well in advance to get the time you want.
The best thing about this resturant is the decor and the friendly staff.
The food was very bland and over priced for what it was. I would not go back again.
Really enjoyed it, great atmosphere, lovely food and pleasant attentive service
3 lunches and only one was any good. Lamb shank tough, chicken salad dry and bland, chicken kebabs seemed to go down well.
To top it off service is added automatically.
Won't be going back
delicious food, excellent service. Will definitely go again.
