Assaha – Haret Hreyk
Impressive Lebanese Huge House with Excellent Cuisine
Review by Jean
Assaha is a unique place. It is a castle looking building, built like a traditional Lebanese village. You have the souks, a hotel, people preparing coffee and saj the traditional way, etc. It has been chosen by important people sleep or eat, as shown in the photos on the entrance: kings and presidents of the regions have been there.
The restaurant is simply huge and is worth visiting. You can choose between a big open air square with its impressive fountains, or eat inside, which has been decorated with great care: nothing looks fake, I can’t imagine how much money they spent to build such a place. Talking about the food, Assaha serves traditional Lebanese food: mezze, grills and specialties. The service is correct if there are not too much people, but beware: during Ramadan the restaurant is mostly full and waiters often makes mistakes, so it probably is the case for other occasions.
However, if you can pass through this, you’ll enjoy a great mind-changing moment here.Write a Review
