Amazing location, ambience is great as well.
Banquet platter had great dips, skewers were tad disappointing, especially with the price point of 45$ per person.

The staff, service and was spectacular! We even had a spontaneous fortune coffee cup reading session with a staff member. My favourite meal at the end of the night, was the rice pudding dessert. This was an absolutely wonderful restaurant to have dinner at.

We had such a lovely time. When we got there and saw a celebration going I was concerned it was going to be noisy but we were seated in another section glasses off and couldn’t hear a thing. You catered for with a great variety of vegetarian and halal. All the food was wonderful and was enjoyed by all. We will be returning. Thank you

We don't often have Lebanese food so it was fun to have something different and also different from other Lebanese food we have actually had. It was very tasty.

Food was great and service brilliant.

Some restaurants you can never find a waiter when needed. It was clear that they were paying attention to all the tables, without being at all intrusive, in case we or other customers wanted something else.

Loved the food. We'll be going back to try other menu items. Highly recommended.

Normally i dont like to give people negative feedback but this was the most expensive $240 for four people the food was so small not enough to feed under the pre value of $48 per person which does not include drinks and it basically valued we got put on the table was for 2 people instead of 4

Really nice food, service was good as was the view of the river. Price was above average I thought for the actual food though that you could get of the same quality elsewhere. I felt I paid an above average premium for deciding to dine in next to the river.

We had a team lunch (for a farewell). Originally booked online for 15 but easily updated it online to 20 when more RSVPs came late. Then 24 people turned up but the staff took it all in stride.
We didn't take the banquet option (we had too many differing dietary requirements) and ordered ala carte, and the kitchen did an incredible job getting 24 different meals ready and served at the same time with minimal wait (perhaps 15-20 minutes).
Food was well received by everyone and service was fantastic and accomodating. Would recommend again for group, business and team functions.
