Leila’s Authentic Lebanese Cuisine is a family-owned business named after the first-born daughter of the owners.

We offer authentic, exciting and healthy dishes, which are prepared by the only authentic Lebanese chef in Budapest. Our restaurant is cozy, welcoming friends and families from all cultures and backgrounds.

We believe in supporting local businesses: our meat is 100% halal-certified coming from a local butcher and we work with local distributors of Arabic & Lebanese food. The restaurant was designed using a local carpenter, tile designers & talented local artists.

We would kindly like to inform you that our reservation policy is 2 hours per occasion. If you choose to reserve online, kindly do that 24 hours in advance due to high number of reservations.

Ahlan wa Sahlan!
