The al-Meshwar restaurant is located in the centre of the city in a whimsical-looking building and features a ground-floor "cafe" serving the regional staples shawarma, felafel etc and shishas. Above that is the main restaurant, which serves good-quality Lebanese fare.

A franchise of the Persian restaurant chain Sadaf is also to be found in the city. The decor is rather startling including a waterfall in the middle of the dining room, but the food is of a good standard.
