Excellent meals, service and atmosphere. So far only had a Thai meal, but it was absolutely excellent and spot on. Just as the food tasted when I was in Thailand. The pirces are also more honest and on point than at many places in Beirut!...More

I love the quiet, elegant yet unpretentious theme of the place. The variation in cuisines entices you to visit the place regularly to try Makan's take on world cuisines. We tried the Vietnamese menu, and over the past period, they served Palestinian, North Syrian and...More

Lovely restaurant with tasty home-made food. The menu was quite big and very satisfying. Keep in mind that you should go with an empty stomac and an open mind. To be repeated!

They have a special menu for each night. It's always good. I had srilankan food. For the price the last time I was there you would pay what you want based on your satisfaction. Enjoy your trip
