Restaurants, Middle Eastern, Pork Free Bukit Bintang

Time Out says

When one thinks of Lebanese food, one thinks of Al- Amar, whose offerings include mezze (a variety of either hot or cold dishes in small portions), traditional Lebanese salads, chawarma and of course raw lamb meat dishes for the more adventurous. Step into this restaurant and you’ll be met with tasteful red furnishings and exotic ornaments; there’s also a seating area by the balcony, from which you can enjoy your meal with the view of the ever thriving Jalan Bukit Bintang.
