Lake Forest, CA 92630
OC Weekly's Description
The service is fast and cordial at this Lebanese restaurant, the hostesses pretty, the food extraordinary. None of the entrées and appetizers available is a surprise so much as embellished. Hummus, for instance, is properly garlicky and oily, but you can also have it topped with awarma, ground lamb sautéed to a sweet, cardamom-y zenith.
Tips from foursquare
This place unethically charged me for a dish I did not order. You've been warned. Food is bland as well (chicken shwarma).
Grilled lamb and hummus are excellent!
the chicken shwarma is almost too good to handle.
Labneh dip with garlic is ah-maze-zing! For a fantastic homemade treat try the kina fee. Everything is homemade and always delicious.
