Too many people are smoking indoors and it is very bothering for those who don't smoke or can't handle the smoke/smell. There aren't even open windows or smthg. Isn't this like illegal?
Food and service are okay.
I've never been there, coz i know it's just a propaganda... It's visible and very clear from their pictures. Wa7ad byirou7 la yekol mtlel khale2, msh ta yekol Kabis ou kam sha2fet batata... Bidallou yittda7akou 3al sha3eb, ou sha3eb ghefi.
i placed my order at noon, at 1:45 still no order!
called them 3 times, they kept on telling me " in 10 min"!, and at 1:45 when i told them i want to cancel my order, the girl who took the order told me" kenna ma2tou3in men el kafta"!!!!!
waw! no comment!
and hands the phone to her manager, who tells me, "another time maybe!!!!!!"
this was my first and last experience with them for sure!
Went once and had to go again!!! The food was extremely good and the portions were huge!!!! The staff were amazingly friendly and helpful! It was a cheap heap full of food. Couldn't finish it all both times, so we took it home for the dog! A must go to for everyone!!!
The concept is great and i got used to it since i used to live in zahle.. the beirut branches need a little work on the reception phase in the restaurant itself.. other than that portions are good.. price is very affordable.. taste is good.. staff are nice.. the burger tabliye is a nice way to present the burger in an oriental way but the side orders need to be reconsidered since they are the same as the ones served with taouk as well and hummos doesnt go with burgers..
But the reason im giving this 5 stars is the clients follow up.. yesterday i ordered a delivery and i was surprised by their call this morning to follow up on their order and the food quality and presentation and temperature.. and no restaurant has ever done that..
Massaad is very recommended and a great competition for all the lebanese grill restaurants in Lebanon..
I ordered the famous tabliyet tawouk. It was below average. The only good thing is the presentation, other than that, it's very bad. The tawouk is chewy, the sandwich by itself has only fries and tawouk in it, which are very average in taste. You eat all the other ingredients separately (also average in taste like the coleslaw, garlic, pickles...etc)
in conclusion, the idea is unique, but useless
My favourite lebanese food restaurant by far❤️ the tawook and sojok tabaleye are sensational and they make u full for a good price, very delicious biscuit au chocolat, and very warm staff and manager, however it should expand because it's always crowded
The good thing about this place is that you know that you'll be satisfied with your food. Tasty and cheap. The only reason i didn't give it 5 stars is because you rarely find a place, the place is tight so you always have to wait 15-30 mins so a table is empty.
I used to go to zahleh to eat at this resto! And now it's in beirut! Will try it soon. Tried the hazmiyeh branch but was disappointed. Very oily was the food. Will try gemmayze branch.
Update: dbayye and jounye branch are like zahle's
YUMMY... 5 stars
Lol Ziad the place is always crowded (Monday through Sunday)... and the people are always queued up at the front door...which means that the place is awesome... dude you are one of those uptight customers!! Just Chill and enjoy the delicious food and generous portions.. not to mention that the prices are surprisingly low... given that the place is on gemmayze street
•Food was delicious
•Place was so crowded (tried the restaurant on saturday so I don't know about other days)
•The restaurant lacked the experienced waiters (I.E: We told the waiter to bring the menu, he didn't; I went myself and brought it. The waiter never came to take my order, I actually called him to come take my order)
In my opinion, if you don't mind crowded places and slow service, try Tabliyet Massaad.
