Delicious food. The lamb shank lived up to it's reputation. It was fall off the bone tender and flavorful.
Excellent meal! We've found a new neighborhood restaurant with a nice, relaxing ambience. The customer service was top notch with them accommodating our special dietary needs too. We'll definitely be back to try more from the menu.
The restaurant had great food and friendly service. I would not have known or thought to come here without my gift card.
welcoming atmosphere. the chicken schwarma and rice were delicious. I would go back again
Layalina was pretty good - it was my first time trying Syrian food it was my mother-in-law‘s first time trying lamb. The food was decent but what stood out the most was the setting both inside the lounge and outback with a flowered and vined garden fence seating area. The staff was also very nice.
Excellent food and friendly service. Would definitely return!
Family owned, Syrian/Lebanese food. Friendly service and authentic homemade food, made with care ;)
I loved this unique looking place. It’s definitely a great authentic Syrian spot to enjoy their traditional food. We went there for a quick lunch. Regardless, nice experience and nice smiling staff!
Great family restaurant
