Dunya Beirut is a special Lebanese restaurant located at the heart of Beirut. It offers signature Lebanese food and delicious mezza in a traditional Arabic setting.
Lebanese restaurants are becoming a worldwide trend nowadays. There is no doubt that Lebanese food is unique, and the number of chefs that can make truly delicious Lebanese mezza are not that many.
For this reason, many restaurants are creating new specialties to attract more clients. Some succeeded in making a name for themselves, others did not.
This amazing concept of a Lebanese restaurant, established in 2014, was able to captivate its clients with a single visit. Once you try it, you are hooked.
The food, the atmosphere, the staff, the warm welcome… Dunya Beirut has it all.
Atmosphere and setup ♦♦♦♦♦
As soon as you walk in to the restaurant, you are overwhelmed by the warm welcome of the staff, and the interior design of the place. The space inside is very well organized, allowing the owners to welcome a high number of clients without making them feel uncomfortable.
The spacious tables are at reasonable distances from each other and the chairs are extremely relaxing. The whole place is structured in a way that every seated client can see what is happening at the center of the restaurant.
Dunya Beirut sets itself a part from other Lebanese restaurants thanks to the amazing shows it hosts. Dancers, talented singers, and amazing artists join hands together to entertain the restaurant’s clients and give them an amazing time.
The food is without a doubt what has made Dunya Beirut’s good reputation in just a few months after its opening. The mezza is deliciously fresh and features unexpected twists to traditional meals. (Think Garlic Labneh with Olives and Tomatoes; Deliciously stuffed eggplants and zucchinis; potato salad…).
The menu is very rich and varied and contains just about any Lebanese meal you can think of. The hot mezza exceptionally good (I especially recommend the Kebbeh, and the mini-lahm b’ajeen).
The desserts are just out of this world and also have their own twists, which I will let you discover on your own. (You must try the fried chocolate wraps).
The Service ♦♦♦♦♦
The waiters and staff are all extremely courteous and friendly. They are all smiling and always around to check whether there’s something that you need.
What’s really nice about the service is that the waiters are not invasive, they do not impose themselves on you, and that’s really nice because this tends to happen in a lot of other restaurants.
At Dunya Beirut you pay for quality and you pay for a great time. The place is not your next door Lebanese Restaurant, so don’t expect a cheap bill. Prices are reasonable for such a restaurant located in the heart of modern Beirut.
Dunya Beirut is definitely a restaurant we recommend you visit with your friends or family for a great time and for some delicious Lebanese food.
