We’ve got the low-down on 5 of the best places to eat incredible Lebanese food in France’s capital. There’s a huge Lebanese community in Paris and with it, a whole host of superb spots to enjoy their cuisine.

Where to Eat Great Lebanese Food in Paris

I love Lebanese food and fortunately there are some real gems to discover in Paris. This list contains my favourite restaurants that I’ve discovered from friends and word of mouth. It’s not exhaustive but in my opinion they are the best spots to eat Lebanese food in the city. Restaurants are in no particular order.


Liza is a fantastic Lebanese restaurant in the very centre of the city, in the 2nd arrondissement next to the Bourse metro station. They’re currently the only Lebanese restaurant in in Paris in the Michelin guide and I’d say they’re very deserving of the prestigious spot.

Not only is the food incredible, the dining space is such a nice space to be in. The decor has a lovely blend of old and modern Lebanon and the tables are nicely far apart (which is rare for Paris).

Other than the incredibly lovely restaurant the food is what actually brought me to Liza. It’s as fresh as it gets with very elaborate and well dressed salads, moist falafel and well grilled meat. Their pickles (turnip and cucumber) are made in-house and their hummus is incredible. I last had their Shawarma which was beyond generous. Marinated and grilled beef served on a flatbread with hummus, pickles and their lovely house salad.

What to know before you visit

  • You can reserve online
  • Avoid the table under the dome (it has weird acoustics!)

Rimal is one of the go-to Lebanese restaurants for many foodies in Paris and for good reason. It’s probably the most well known chain in the city for high quality Lebanese cuisine. It’s not cheap but damn is it good.

They have 3 restaurants in the city each with varying levels of service. There’s two next to the Parc Monceau and one off the Champs-Élysées on the Avenue George V. The latter is their flagship restaurant, Rimal Signature, which is much more of a fine-dining restaurant.

The food across all three is pretty consistent but the prices do vary. I personally go to their Traiteur next to the Parc Monceau as it’s significantly cheaper than the restaurants. The food is superb with their grilled meat cooked (kaftas, chicken skewers and excellent lamb chops) to order and salads dressed à la minute. I especially love their hummus (it’s a must-try).

What to know before you visit

  • You can reserve at their l’Atelier and Signature restaurants by calling
  • For a quick lunch I’d recommend their Le Traiteur café – it’s much cheaper


L’Atelier: 94 Bd Malesherbes, 75008
Signature: 26 Av. George V, 75008
Le Traiteur: 121 Bd Malesherbes, 75008



Noura is another high-end Lebanese restaurant chain within Paris. Perhaps on par with Rimal, you’re guaranteed to eat extremely well here but again, it is on the pricier side. I’d probably say it’s one of the most gastronomic Lebanese restaurants in the city and very much worth a try.

They currently have 5 restaurants across the city with their main flagship restaurant on the Avenue George V just off the Champs-Élysées. Just next door to the flagship bistro is their traiteur which is great for a quick lunch and their express wraps are really good.

The food at Noura is stunning is a lot more modern than many in the city. Their flagship brasserie has a very diverse menu but include some banging kebabs (brochettes) cooked over charcoal. They also do some fantastic mankoshas which they call pizettes – flatbreads grilled to order and topped with some really lovely fresh ingredients.

What to know before you visit

  • You don’t need to reserve at their flagship restaurant (Noura Marceau)
  • For a quick wrap for lunch I’d recommend their Le Traiteur next door to Noura Marceau


Noura Marceau: 27 avenue Marceau 75116
Traiteur: 29 avenue Marceau, 75116



Assanabel is a small chain of restaurants that was recommended to me by a Lebanese friend. After my first visit I quickly understood why, they serve some incredible and well priced Lebanese food. They started in 1988 and have been going strong ever since and now have 2 restaurants in the city – one in Le Marais and one in Saint-Germain-des-Prés.

The food is generous yet refined at the same time and probably one of the more reasonable options in the city. Their mezzés are well priced starting from €27 and come with a mix of 7 different cold and hot dishes. I personally love their marinated and grilled half chicken – it’s got a beautiful char and flavour with bursts roasty flavour mixed with garlic and spices.

What to know before you visit

  • You can reserve online
  • Their Marais location is open every day for lunch and dinner


Le Marais: 27 avenue Marceau 75116
Saint-Germain-des-Prés: 29 avenue Marceau, 75116



Qasti is one of the more creative Lebanese restaurants in Paris that I think really stand out from the rest. They have 3 locations and they’re all in the more creative arrondissements of the city – one in the 11th and one in the 10th.

They specialise in small plates (mezzés) all served up in seriously cool dining spaces. It really reminds me more of the new generation of French tapas restaurants but Lebanese. They’re all extremely well presented and they really go the extra mile with well thought out garnishes. Hummus, fried cauliflower, sharwama and fried chicken are done so well.

It’s definitely up there if you’re wanting something a bit more modern and less traditional than the other well established names in the city.
