Reviewed 12 September 2020

I was aware of certain Lebanese dishes before however the food at Al Karam was a game changer for me. The depth of the food and the menu almost reminded me of being home in India, the endless aperitifs, kebabs, dips and sauces, the mains...and then the delicious Osmalliyeh. Everything was cooked perfectly and the service was on point. It didnt really feel like a meal, it felt like a wonderful experience. The dishes that really stood out for me were the Lebanese spicy sausages, the creamy hummous, the kefta and which were absolutlely succulent. Definitely recommend Al Karam!More

Nice restaurant with friendly service and excellent Lebanese food. The price was also very good and wine is not overpriced.

What an amazing little restaurant ! Visited with friends on a trip to Paris and being a lover of Lebanese cuisine followed TripAdvisor reviews to Alkaram - we weren’t disappointed. Great service, delicious food and wonderful ambience. I was also introduced to pickled turnip which...I think I may struggle to find in Manchester 🙂 Close to a Metro station, give it a try, you will not be disappointed.More

Greeted by a friendly smiling server. The restaurant had greet ambiance and decor. Service was very efficient, each course was explained in detail, in English, the courses were delivered in an appropriate manor and in a timely fashion. Each course was well cooked and generously...portioned. We were pleasantly surprised at the cost. We would recommend for dinner.More

It was my first time here and it was amazing. The Staff was so polite and attentive. We were a groupe of four and had four mezze as starters followed by two mixed meat plates. The food was absolutley delicious! I wish, I could come...here more often! They even have fair prices. Starters, main course and two coffees with some baklava and we payed around 100 euros. Thanks for having us!More

I haven't eaten in any other Lebanese restaurants in Paris but it would not surprise me if this was the best. We arrived without a reservation as a family of three and were seated with no trouble. The waiting staff were fast, efficient and friendly....We ordered the 25 euro menu and it was delicious and plentiful. Highlight was the pastries and Kebe in the starter. Really authentic flavours and beautiful home made pastry. Really could not fault this restaurant. The chef came and spoke to us and clearly knows what he is doing. The place had a lovely family feel and was spotlessly clean. A really lovely evening.More

We visited the restaurant for a business dinner out of the blue and was positively surprised. The owners are very kind and helpful, everything we tasted was delicious, very close to original Lebanese taste. The prices are normal for Paris and for a change a...little bit bigger tables. Of course the place is a little bit narrow but that is common in Paris.More

Visited on a Wednesday afternoon for lunch around 1:30! Not crowded but just right! This is about a 1/2 hour walk from the Eiffel Tower but well worth the steps! Ordered falafel, fatayer, kibbeh, fattoush and sajouk! All come as little plates but was full!...Great place for lunch! Gave us dessert including cake and baklawa on the house! Would definitely visit when in Paris again!More

I have been to this place with friends and we enjoyed the offered Lebanese cuisines. The food was great and the service was excellent. The Resturant is managed by Lebanese family and they are the one who serve the clients. Last thing, if you would...like to request a specific cuisine call them one day a head and ask for your favorite dish. I am sure they will serve you well. I strongly recommend it to those who enjoy Lebanese food.More
