Saturday evening. Table for 2. Lots of wait staff. When they weren't busy, they were at the edge of the dining room watching to see if anybody needed anything. This seems so rare these days that I find it refreshing and worth mentioning.

The menu was terrific with a wide array of Lebanese dishes. The waitress knew the menu inside out and answered our questions with ease. We ordered musaha, halloumi cheese, and zaater bread as appetizers. For dinner, we split a lula kabob.

The appetizers arrived quickly and were expertly prepared. Dinner wasn't far behind and it was delicious. Amazingly, there was plenty of food and we finished most of it.

Having travelled abroad and sampled a lot of Middle Eastern food when I was younger, the meal at this restaurant brought back a lot of fond memories. I want to return. If I lived in New Orleans, I imagine that this would be a regular haunt.

Returned to one of our fave New Orleans restaurants and, once more, enjoyed the meal - service (Jennifer was great) - prices - location - ambience, too. Indoors or al fresco is your choice. Very wide menu selections, as always.

The appetizers- Kibby and beef/rice cabbage rolls were GREAT. I was only sorry that the kibby was sold by the piece and I had only ordered one. Even the salad that came as the side of the entrees was substantial and tasty.

The entrees, however, were a different story. We had several, including lula kebab and lamb with hummus. The lula kebabs were okay, but a little over-cooked.

The lamb and hummus plate was a real loser. It was greasy, tons of green beans (not even mentioned as part of the dish in the online menu), vegetables and tasty hummus with very, very little lamb. The couple of tablespoons of lamb that was there was greasy and full of gristle, with little flavor. I would not order this entree again.

All in all, it was an overpriced, but only a marginal meal.

The outdoor seating is very quaint and the inside has plenty of room. This place is BYOB. The food was delicious from chicken to lamb to falafel, all are very good. Our waitress might have been having a bad day, but she was not very pleasant.
