    I ate there 2 days in a row. the falafel was not fresh and was served cold. The shawerma plate however was spectacular and filling. Prices are 5 dollars for the falafel and 12 dollars for the shawerma plate

    Was planning a 5-star review of Barbar after a long absence, but this time: A total miss, zero star. Shawarma is a dish that requires a steady stream of customers to remain freshly grilled with good management of the grill at slow times. Attitude to hygene also failed miserably with the wash basin wash water. Both chicken and meat shawarma were overcooked and dry. Taratour was thick and stale even though the place was full in late afternoon. Still, 2-star material up to then would have been fair. The zero star was earned when washing one's mouth with washbasin water, which was salty/brakish from some deep well? In Beirut infrastructure?? After a meal, you would trust a restaurant, at least with the wash basin water supply that you would put in your mouth would be hygienicly clean. This was beyond irresponsible and quite disgusting for customers trusting Barbar"s quality and hygiene. Shame to lose what we thought was an icon in the area.

    Food was decent and the price as well. Service in the other hand was not good at all. Waiters not attentive and when you ask for something they start talking to their partners. When we asked for to go boxes the server said he would package it then proceeded to place the tray and boxes on the table next to ours and decided to answer a call. After a few minutes he came back to package our food. He actually just threw everything in the box mixing it all up. Wish I had been given to opportunity to do it myself.

    July 2023: in here in this country to try to find best shawarma. This my first stop on their reputation. Beef shawarma was samll but meat tender tahini decidant. I can say it's the best one I have tried but it's guaranteed to be up with the top 10. Place is clean an staff is friendly. They are 3 stores in the intersection serving different foods. Next is the cold cuts sandwiches one across from this one
