With its informal mix of dining and lounge areas with an informal and cozy ambiance, it encourages conversations as you dine. Comfortably seating more than 80 people, with a private room for 20, Ahlein restaurant offers folkloric entertainment with the belly dancers performing to traditional tunes allowing guests to immense themselves in the Lebanese culture.
Traditionally dressed waiters immediately greet you at your table with a trolley featuring an overwhelming selection of over 12 hot and cold mezza including spicy cheeses, sambousak, fattoush and, the must try "Ahlein Signatire Appetizer"™, a delightful preparation of steamed sea bass with garlic, herb sauce and walnuts, all offered with freshly baked bread.
Highly recommended for your main course is the Mixed Grill, which comes with a wonderfully aromatic saffron rice concoction made with minced meat and pine nuts, and the grilled prawns and mussels served with Lebanese sour cream.
Desserts include Lebanese sweet cheese rolls, Osmanliya (golden konafa with a cream filling) and the infamous Laualy Lebnan (a delightful rose water mehalabiya pudding with bananas, dates, nuts and cream smothered in a honey sauce.
Those who do not wish to have a full course dinner can sit back and relax in the shisha corner and enjoy fresh juices, and hot traditional coffees.
