  • “I must have lucked out because I was thrilled to finally find some was "real" tabbouleh which was fantastic, as was the very tasty lentil soup with a nice lemon tang. Also had the yogurt and cucumber as a side and found that to be equally as yummy. The delivery only took about 30 minutes and I live pretty far from them. I hope I have the same positive experience the next time.”

    Maya

  • “Quality Lebanese food (i.e. not "middle eastern" in general) for those that want a taste of home. Ordered from them more than I care to admit in the last week (4 times is excessive?) but had to deduct a star because occasionally they're late. Really late. Quality is definitely always there however. ”

  • “I'm not one to write reviews--however, this was the worst experience I have had on seamless ever. I ordered tabouleh salad, hummus, and falafel and everything was soaking wet. I called the restaurant to get a refund, and the management was almost attacking me like I made it up. You shouldn't be disrespectful to a customer, ever, sorry. Instead of getting a refund, he said he was going to send me another one. Just to get off the phone, I agreed, but I should have gotten a refund without a fight.”
