Sambusek is set in a cool, elegant surrounding that is vibrantly upbeat. Capturing the true essence of Lebanese cuisine, Sambusek delights seafood lovers with the quality and freshness of its ingredients from the local fish market. More than just a restaurant, it is a destination for family and friends to enjoy in comfort and style.

Beneath the exterior, the restaurant is delightfully traditional. A popular choice for lunchtime or early evening, the finest meats and freshest fish are grilled to perfection and served to a fun-loving, yet discerning clientele.

After nightfall, the Sambusek vibe transforms and upbeat music reigns. Socialites from the capital and beyond come to enjoy the evening in a Lebanese-style environment. With a selection of beverages and delectable dishes, guests can enjoy the delightful evening atmosphere.

The restaurant’s size and private areas make it an ideal venue for celebrations of all types and sizes. Small, intimate gatherings as well as large parties can all be accommodated and in some cases hosted simultaneously. In cooler months, diners and revelers can make the most of the restaurant’s outdoor terrace, Smoke.
