Best Restaurant I've found in Bath
- review added on Thu 27th Apr 2000
Service is perfection itself. Attentive but not imposing. Polite but not aloof. Friendly and funny. I love this place. The food, I should explain if you’ve never tried Lebanese, is full of simple, clean tastes. Everything shouts its ingredients at you. Even so, when the three parts of your set meal are brought out (for it seems silly to order anything else) they are explained to you by the waiter or maitre d’. Lemony salads, homous tasting like nothing similarly named you’ll have tried before and an a ubergine dip are followed by hot starters like falafels and spicy potato. The main course is a central dish covered in char grilled meat, peppers and onions and comes with a garlic mayo dip. Lebanese sweets (if you have any room left) are little pastries, flavoured with pistachio and honey mixtures, and are delicious. Lebanese coffee is so good it defies belief. Dark, sweet and strong and flavoured with cardamom. Why doesn’t anyone sell it?My next visit will be my sixth and as far as I’m concerned it can’t come soon enough.

A notice in the front window of Sands says that an Indian restaurant is due to open there. Rather a shame, because Sands was extremely good.

Really lovely food, feels very authentic, like your eating in an underground cave but not claustraphobic. food is incredible, service is good and several of the waiters are very amusing. highly recommend.
