in Cairo

Delicious Lebanese food in a sumptuous but relaxed atmosphere. There's plenty of grilled meat mains, but the mezze here is the real star of the show. Order old favourites hummus and sambousek (stuffed pastry triangles), some salads, chicken livers in pomegranate molasses, and bel kawarma (mashed potato doused in lamb's fat), and you've got yourself a real Levantine feast.

Everything comes with fresh-baked pillows of pita, and sharing is the name of the game; all the better for sampling more mezze dishes. To top it off, service here is head and shoulders above most other places in town.
