Named for an ancient Middle Eastern city, Byblos is one of the few restaurants in Bangalore that serves up authentic Lebanese food. A two-floor establishment, with tables and chairs as well as booth seating, the restaurant boasts of mellow lighting, pretty interiors and helpful and smiling service. The menu lists a host of traditional fare, with spellings to match! Start with one of their mezze platters, which come with hot and cold items like 'Hommus', 'Muttabal', 'Muhamarrah', 'Falafel', 'Fattouch', 'Spinach Fateyar' and 'cheese/meat Sambusek'. They have some soups and salads on the menu, both veg and non-veg. Hommus is a must-order here and aside from plain Hommus, there are more varieties to choose from: a meat version, 'Chef’s special Byblos Hommus' and 'Beiruty Hommus'. Others to try are the 'Vine Leaves', a dish traditional of the region, 'Labneh (hung curd)', and the eggplant dish, 'Babaghanouj'. The 'Manakeesh', which are pastry sheets baked with toppings, like a thin pizza, come with meat, meat and cheese, but the best of the lot is the 'Zaatar', which has thyme, sumac powder, sesame and olive oil. A range of wraps like 'Kebab Entabli' and 'Kofta Sandwich' are also good choices. From the 'Charcoal Grill Platters section', where the dishes are served with fries, try the 'Arayess', 'Lamb Tikka' or 'Shish Taouk'. Beverages include hot and cold coffees and teas in a range of flavours as well as freshly squeezed juices and milkshakes.
Food is good no doubt about that. I did not like 2 things about it during my visit on the 14-Apr-2019. Firstly they gave me a Proforma Invoice and not a Invoice, this amounts to selling goods or services actually without a valid document, and the GST collected from me was actually pocketed by the restaurant and this did not reach the Government, so basically they cheated me and the Government of 5% of amount. Secondly, they charged 7% as service charge even without taking my prior approval. I was with my Guests, and also naturally did not observe this nor the Proforma Invoice and just paid. If they would have asked me how much should they add as Tip/Service charge maybe I would have paid more, since they added it without my approval I feel again cheated. For these 2 things, which I consider as a willful deceit and would have given them negative markings.
Nice place for Lebanese Cousine. Even if you are vegetarian , you won't be disappointed . Hummus , deserts Umm ali all good .
I visited the byblos restaurant today's for dinner and I must admit that the Arabic food is the best you could get in the city. Very authentic flavour and I was told that the chefs gets most of his ingredients every few months from Dubai. Chef Ammar the executive chef is one of the most humble people you would meet and always goes out of his ways to create memorable dining experience for all this guest. He also send us a portion of Falafel which was outstanding. The cold Mezze are to die for which goes really well with the freshly baked pita. Food is outstanding and the service very personal. Chef Ammar was very kind to show us around the kitchen and also packed some home made bakalava for us to take along.. looking for Arabic and lebanese food head straight to byblos, you would have a meal fit for kings.
The dishes are average. Better options for non-vegetarians. The price is on the higher side and given the taste not value for money. In search for better Lebanese food in Bangalore...
Best Khubz and Hummus in Bengaluru. Manakeesh Jebne, Za'atar & toum was equally yummy. Awesome food and good ambience.
Middle Eastern food has swelled beneath our noses in popularity and excellence in the past decade. As more and more people got used to the sights of shawarma stalls in markets and Lebanese food counters in food courts, the cuisine somehow caught fire and transformed overnight into a sough after gourmet must-have. Meat and bread plays a huge role in this cuisine but without those grains and veggie salads, the cuisine won’t have the same charm. After taking its fill of European and American cuisines, Bengaluru has discovered a new love for Middle Eastern food, a fascination obliged by this awesome restaurant ‘Byblos’. Under the mantle of Ammar Molki, Byblos has grew up to be a well-known brand name known for its exotic food and lovely ambience. Its tucked on the trendy 100 Feet Road, Indiranagar, Bengaluru.
Dining at Byblos is like taking a culinary trip across Middle-East. Their menu is an amalgamation of Lebanese and Arabian cuisine. For a medium-priced bill, you can enjoy a lavish feast of Middle-Eastern flavours at Byblos. If you would like to taste a little bit of everything then choose their buffet. Your choices will be more generous and economical. Variety in a la carte menu is fantastic. Make your first course of, meat sambusek, falafel, harra potato, chicken wings provencal, lentil soup, fattouch, meat kibbeh, samkeh harra, ras asfour, spinach fatayer and tabbouleh. To wade into the second course binge on an assortment of, kofta sandwich, meat manakeesh, chicken shawarma, shish taouk, sea bass, okra stew, lamb tikka, veggie spicy manakeesh, falafel wraps, fish & chips, Byblos mix grill, arayess and grilled prawns.
To make the meal more substantial place a side order of biryani or oriental rice. Sip on a peppermint tea alongside to accentuate the flavours of the meal. For a more traditional touch choose a glass of ayran, which is a Lebanese refreshment snack drink made of blended yoghurt, salt and garlic. Lebanese desserts are known to be rich and dense yet delicious. You can try, baklava, muhalabiyah, um ali and aish al sarayah. Byblos is spread out across two floors in a formal dining style. Bright shade of red is used in chairs to contrast beautifully with wooden toned finishes. Upper floor can be used as a venue for small party, serve your guests some exotic Middle-Eastern fare and dazzle them.
