Jandol is a well-loved, kitsch and colourful Lebanese restaurant and baklava bakery in Levensulme.
The glass counter is piled high with jars of pastel-coloured sugared almonds, date sweets and rainbow-swirled lollipops. While within the cabinets are trays upon trays of sugar-dusted Turkish delight and of course, their famous crisp and honeyed baklava in so many shapes and sizes that the choice can be bewildering.
The restaurant is often packed with happy diners tucking into Middle Eastern classics like baba ganoush, hummus, shawarma, falafel or grilled halloumi, all served with salads, freshly made flatbreads or neon house pickles.
The white plastic chairs juxtaposed with chandeliers, golden ornaments and copious amounts of dried and artificial flowers make for a uniquely eccentric dining experience.
