Sawah


So we went to Sawah in the Eid period. The location is amazing and the decoration / interior design is simply creative! it's the middle east meets pop culture sort of theme, and it also intersects with old Arabic designs. Tables and seating was nice, although my mother hated the single chairs but there were cushions for the help.

Food, nothing out of the ordinary, I still prefer to go to Cafe Blanc if I want a contemporary Lebanese cuisine. We tried Hot and Cold Mazza, they were all right. Unfortunately they forgot to serve us the main course we requested, and at the time that we got really bored with the poor service and decided to leave, therefore I can not say anything about it, didn't try it!

Service, CRAPPY! I don't know what was wrong but they forgot half of our starters! When I asked for it they brought them, and again they forgot the ONE main dish we ordered! The waiters were busy wondering around but not making eye contact with the guests, I had to call them every time and raise my voice to catch their attention! a thing that I hated very much! Although they were friendly, but not focused. I don't know if we caught them in a bad time but forgetting an order is not an option in a restaurant and it does not depend on the bad or good timing, its about the efficiency of the workers.

Price is ok, a little above average but not pricey. As for the location it has a great one! on a corner in the first floor in Avenues Phase two :)

Their maqaneq is the best!
