Great views help to make a new Lebanese stalwart

Time Out Says

The eager smiling hosts, always on their toes, welcome guests as if welcoming friends to their homes. The tabouleh is always a good litmus test for a restaurant of this nature and, at Abd El Wahab, it’s just right (although lacking in quantity of burgol). The soujok will make you lick your fingers – if not wipe the plate clean with the piping-hot bread laid out on every table. With food served up as fast as theirs, there is a slim chance of seeing empty plates. Once starters begin to dwindle, the grills (over-flowing with fresh, juicy lumps of chicken, fish and shrimp) are brought out. And what better way to end the meal than in the outdoor seating area where you could stretch out with some dessert, treat yourself to a shisha, and a wonderful view of the dancing fountains.
