Great place for really authentic mid-eastern food.Having lived in the Arabian Gulf for many years,I can say that the food here is as good as any local fare served there.Service good.
Not a big amount of seating though and also the place not so big.
One downside is the size of the 4-seater table.If you are four then after the plates of food are served,there is hardly any space for water and drinks.

The shawarma was really good. I've been traveling to the middle east in my childhood and so far, among all Shawarmas I've had, this is the closest to the authentic.

Their servings are really large. The hummus was great. They served us a lot of fresh pita bread to go with it, which we enjoyed so much.

My daughters enjoyed their chicken wraps and the hummus was outstanding. My wife's and my salads were average. She had shawarma and I had kafta. My kafta was very dry and my wife's shawarma was grainy and had an unpleasant flavor.

The hummus was quite good and I also had the best lamb kafta in a while.
The service excellent. The atmosphere is also very Lebanese.

It's always a pleasure to dine at the Lebanese Taverna in Westover. The day we went, the service was a bit slow compared to the dozen or so other times I've been there. Perhaps someone was out for lunch service. We were not in a rush so we weren't overly concerned but it could have been problematic for others. We both had shwarma sandwiches which were fine. One of the reasons we like LT so much is the noise level is low and you can hear your table partner(s). There are a few parking places in the front, but I usually end up parking on the street.
