Start with a selection of mezze platter , including dips and salads. Then work through falafel and pita bread the Lebanese way . The platter and several dips my fav . Dip called Baba Ghanoush, of baked eggplant the garlicky white sauce often dolloped alongside kebabs and rolls took my entire attention . The falafel roll was tender and juicy and the wrap was tasty. It also was large, which is good because I ended up stealing most of it. In the mains we had Moroccan khudar musshakal mixed vegetables cooked with rich spices with excellent texture and taste and Panneer curry cooked in tangy Moroccan gravy along a must recommend one with khameeri roti and rich in flavours saffron rice . Every dish looks like a work of art and it breaks your heart to dig into it with forks and knives mercilessly. But, ultimately your carnal desire takes over and the plate is wiped clean in minutes .
