Cedar Valley Lebanese

When brothers Georges and Haytham Rahmeh purchased the Cedar Valley Lebanese Restaurant in December 2016, they did so with the intention of putting their own personal touch on both the decor and the menu.

Brothers Haytham (left) and Georges Rahmeh are gadually putting their unique mark on Cedar Valley Lebanese Food in Orléans Garden Shopping Centre.

After first addressing the menu, they began the lengthy process of making some esthetic changes to the interior of the restaurant, while staying open seven days a week.

It as a long and somtimes frustratung process, but the end result is a much brighted more cheerful environment in which to enjoy a shawarama, donair, falafel, shish kebob, or other Lebanese specialty they have to offer.

“The sign on the front of the restaurant says ‘Cedar Valley Lebanese Food’, not ‘Cedar Valley Shawarma’,” explains Haytham who managed an award-winning international hotel in Beirut before immigrating to Canada.

Since taking over the restaurant, the brothers have built up a loyal clientele by sticking to a simple formula using fresh ingredients and condiments, including high quality chicken and beef and they put a major emphasis on customer service. In fact, they were recently nominated as one of the best Lebanese restaurants in the entire city by Skip the Dishes.

Local residents like coming to Cedar Valley to get their Lebanese food fix. Besides the standard sandwiches, Cedar Valley also makes their own tabouleh and hummus on site, and the Fattouche Salad featuring Haytham’s secret dressing has become a runaway favourite.

They are one of the few Lebanese food restaurants that still offers four different size sandwiches – small, medium, large and extra large – and they have a variety of Sunday specials.

“Lebanese food is the healthiest food you can eat,” says Georges. “Everything is made to order using the freshest ingredients.”

In the not too distant future, the brothers plan to capitalize on the reputation they’ve gained for their homemade Baklava and other tasty treats by adding a bakery to the business.

The brothers have also ramped up the restaurant’s catering business. Establishing a menu for a catered event allows Cedar Valley to offer a long list of Lebanese specialties that are not on the daily menu.

“We can do events from 50 people to 500 people, no problem,” says Haytham.

Customer service is what Haytham and Georges are all about. They want each and every customer to feel welcome from the moment they walk through the front door..

A renewed focus on customer service also means a renewed focus on customer feedback. They have a huge presence on social media including Facebook and Instagram, through which they can offer their customers different specials, and they encourage visitors to provide suggestions on how and where they can improve.

“It’s very important that you listen to your customers and try to give them more of what they like,” says Haytham.

With that type of philosophy in mind, Cedar Valley will continue to provide its customers with delicious Lebanese food served in a bright and inviting environment.

Cedar Valley Restaurant is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and they are located in the Orléans Garden Shopping Centre at the corner of Jeanne d’Arc and Orléans Blvd. You can visit their Facebook page at www.facebook.comt or follow them on Instagram.
