We walked into the restaurant and opted for the lunch buffet, which was really the great part of this place. For the price, it's pretty good. Personally, I liked the Chicken Kebab and the Yogurt salad. The variety of salad choices in and of itself is wonderful. There's multiple kinds of tabbouleh... read more

The best kabobs, pita, and hummus there is. Great place to dine in or even better, take out for a large party.

I've lived in the area for 50 years and have never heard of this restaurant. I was delighted to find a place that's efficient, with fabulous service and delicious food. We had their dinner buffet, $15.95 unless you're 65 or older. Then it's only $12.95. They have all the traditional Middle Eastern food, including great lentil soup, salads, garlic sauce,... More

Buffet is a bargain. Food is good and dependable. I cannot taste everything on any visit--too many choices. Garnishes are excellent. This is Middle Eastern food, maybe a bit like Lebanese. It's a bargain. It has families, couples, worker groups, everyone. Middle Easterners come, so does everyone else as I see it. Take out is very good. Parking is ample... More

We often go to Wahib's. We have been customers for over 30 years! He first opened a small place on the site of an old OrangeJulius in Alhambra. The quality of his food has remained excellent! We will remain customers as long as we're able!

I first started patronizing Wahib's in th 1970s when they had a converted hot dog stand to serve their authentic, delicious food when it was the only choice for this type of food for many miles. Today, there are other choices, but few where you get authenticity, quality, and value without having to wait between courses. The buffet has a... More

The buffet selection is small but the food is authentic as per my Middle Eastern friend. One of the very few Middle Eastern place in this area.

We try to visit this restaurant whenever we are in the LA / Alhambra area. This is a great place. The food is always authentic, handmade and wonderful. The owner/chef and his wife have been working the place, every time we've been there. Great staff and waiters as well. Can't say enough about this place.

We really enjoy eating here. I highly recommend the Hummus on pita bread. We always bring a full container home with us.

We just happened to be in Alhambra, CA and asked someone where they recommended to go for lunch and was told to go to Wahib's for Mediterranean food. A more accurate description is Lebanese as far as I know. They have a great all-you-can-eat buffet for $12.95 ($10.95 for seniors). All the items were delicious - chicken, baba ghanoush (which...
