Leila holds a prominent position in the field of Lebanese cuisine, providing guests with exquisitely prepared food in a glamorous and comfortable setting. The broad menu offers something for everyone, with choices ranging from mezzes and salads, to deliciously cooked meats and fresh juices. Meat lovers will be in heaven with the choices on offer, with dishes such as 'Leila Light Chicken', which is not only tasty but also healthy, and 'Kafta Bel Laban' which is grilled Kafta meat served with yoghurt, toasted Lebanese bread and pine nuts. The Leila breakfast menu is delightful, offering guests traditional food such as Labneh, Fattet hommous, Marinated chickpeas, Lahmeh Bil Ajine, Egg with Qawarma and Zaatar.
Leila is a unique, soulful restaurant, and the name reflects that aspect, being peaceful, warm and feminine. The name originates from a girl called Leila who watched her grandma cook, and eventually learned and mastered all the traditional Lebanese recipes. Leila went on to open her own restaurant, which became a success, and her name lives on. Leila encompasses a relaxing, friendly environment with family photos on the walls, and jam and pickle jars scattered around, making you feel at home. Guests regularly sit for hours at Leila, talking amongst one another and enjoying the freshly prepared food.
Currently, the flagship branch is now open in Mirdif City Centre, Dubai, Downtown Dubai, Maisem City Center and Arabian Ranches II (The Souk Ranchers). Leila is a great addition to the UAE, and is already proving a great hit with the local community.
