Lebanese restaurant offering wonderful mezzes and stunning Beirut specialities.
A star it truly is, showcasing the unique cuisine of the Levant. Hidden in plain sight on Paisley Road West, the first nibble of the mezze will make anyone glad of their adventure. Everything on a plate here bursts and sizzles with flavour. Crispy fatayer parcels stuffed with pomegranate, spinach and pine nuts illustrate the best of the region’s culinary identity – distinctive combinations blended together with wonderful delicacy. The small plates are perfect for sampling an inviting menu. Tabbouleh is a joyous bowl of greens and grains beautifully balanced with lemon vinaigrette and olive oil while the mini lamb sausages are juicy and richly textured. The house special lamb stew is an alternative to the grill, packed with tagine-style tenderness making the last mouthful a somewhat poignant moment. That is unless your dining partner orders the mixed grill, which is a charcoal-infused feast too vast for a mortal to undertake alone. The chunks of tangy lemon chicken steal the show here, matched perfectly with the smokey overtures of the grill. A wonderful member of Glasgow’s food scene – nuanced, layered, balanced and complex. Like its Lebanese city namesake.
