Leila is originally a restaurant from Beirut, Lebanon that serves authentic Lebanese food. Its pretty name came from the owner’s name. Leila has opened her own restaurant after years watching her grandma cook and mastering making all the traditional Lebanese dishes.

The restaurant has excellent service and knowledgeable crew team who will give you all the needed information about their broad menu. That, plus exceptionally good food, reasonable prices, and lively and bright interiors, what else can you ask for?

No wonder, the restaurant is perennially packed. One would also be delighted to know that it closes a little after midnight. So you can get your hungry tummy a good treat even at the ungodly hours.

Their Pesto ras asfour is getting much hype from all the diners who have eaten there. It is a dish with small cuts of meat that has basil sauce and crispy French fries to go with it. The dish is such a simple creation but is very flavorful. Other recommendations are Spicy kibba, Hommos, Ghazal Beirut, Osmalliet and Samboosek.
