Lebanese food

Post by megha » Sun, 31 Jul 2005 12:36 pm

Hey guys
I am new here and I dont know any places where they serve authentic Lebanese food specially the chicken shawarma's & hummus. I tried Arb street "Samar" but they did not have shawarma and even their Hummus tasted different. Any recommendations.

I never tried, but I know there is one on Pekin Street. It's called Casba.
May be you want to check if it's still there first: 6438 2975.

I went to Al-Hamra at Holland Village, bit more upscale, but quite authentic Lebanese dishes.

Here's a list of other middle-eastern restaurants in Singapore:

Thanks for the info guys, I had heard of Al-Hamra but the opinion slightly differed, someone said the food is only "Ok" and the prices too high....

I've been to a really good, authentic Turkish place upstairs in the food hall at Suntec City.

Not quite Lebanese, but damn good food.

When going one time, it is always tricky of course, as a lot can differ from time to time, especially when it comes to service and ambience.

When we were there, there was a huge b'dayparty of a young teen American going on, with about 25 of his guests all over the restaurant. The ambience was a bit disturbed with teens running around and showing off towards eachother. As a result the service to other guests wasnot exactly given priority. We got a wrong dish served and had to wait quite long in between. And I agree, the prices are quite high compared to the food they serve. Don't get me wrong, the food was good, fresh ingredients and authentic middle eastern cuisine. But at this place you expect more than just a plate of kebab, at least that is what the prices implicate to me.

So I can somewhat agree to the feeling of a price too high for the quality overall.
