The Sheikh's Palace offers something exotic to appreciate and hope to enchant you with the customs and traditions of an ancient civilization.  So sit back, relax and be treated......like a Sheikh!
Lebanese hospitality is expressed by the offering of a variety of foods.  The gesture is accepted and reciprocated by indulging.

Mezze - derived from the word "miz" (which means to taste,) is usually served as an array of sumptuous, individually hand prepared starters with contrasting flavours and texture. These delicacies are served buffet style to the centre of the table and eaten with bread or fresh vegetables from the Jaht Ghodra (a platter of fresh seasonal vegetables) a healthier, lighter option.
It is regarded as proper to eat with your hands...tearing a piece of bread or vegetable, either placing it on the desired item and pinching between your fingers or elegantly dipping it-making sure your hands are kept clean.

Main course is then served - either plated or plattered - for guest to share. Smoking of the Argileh (Middle Eastern Hubbly Bubbly) is customary as well as the performance by writhing Belly Dancers, where tipping is a sign of one enjoying ones self!

Dessert is the most important custom accompanied with coffee or mint tea showing that one is satisfied with the hospitality

Just thought I would send some feedback on the poor service I received tonight. My girlfriend and I arrived there at 19:50 on 15 November 2014 and was shown to our table, we then waited 15 min before a waitress brought menu, and in fact the place was still empty, ordered, a shisha pipe which came 15 min later and only lasted 10min before it had died and that at a ridiculous cost of R150, that's pathetic, we also waited another 25min before we even got our starters even though the waitresses told us it will be 5min only. Also upon asking for the bill, the waitress had forgotten to add the shisha pipe and also almost robbed you from R100, just shows the incompetence Your prices are crazy, in fact maybe you guys should really consider getting proper waitresses that can even speak English and can count...
