Em Sherif – Monot
Classy and Elegant Atmosphere
Review by Souad
Em Sherif is an elegant Lebanese restaurant with outstanding decoration and delicious food. At Em Sherif, you don’t choose from a menu, one formula is presented to you with a set of cold and hot mezze in addition to main courses and grills. As soon as you are ready, a series of mezze starts to land on the table: the classics like tabouleh, fattoush, tajen, french fries… and some old recipes like kebbet la2tin, kebbe 2arnabiyeh, man2oush keshek. I loved their fattoush, hendbeh, kebbet batenjen and especially their ouzi. At the end of the meal, they bring you traditional desserts like meghli and mhallabiyeh…
The restaurant has an original Arabic interior design with old plates on a wall, a seemingly broken ceiling, arabesque mirrors, all in an orchestra of colors and shapes. Our table was a mirror covered with an organza tablecloth.
The service is caring and professional. Prices are way higher than average. The formula for lunch is at 35$ and for dinner with live music 60$ excluding arguileh and drinks. Some people say that Em Sherif is worth the high prices, others say it’s not. Personally, I think that it’s suitable for a lunch but excessive for a dinner. So, if you visit it, please share your opinion with us.Write a Review
Lebanese restaurant, you don’t choose items in the menu. It’s a unique formula for everyone with mezze and grills.
