Fun place with average food

Not completely impressed with the food but nice outdoor patio to watch people and talk. You can smoke a hooka pipe and watch a belly dancer.

I have always wanted to eat here as it always seems busy and has a good atmosphere. But friends of mine told me the food is not great. Last week we decided to try it out. I am sorry we bothered. We had kebab - chewy meat and tiny pieces of pita placed on top - total let down. My... More

We visited while in the area since they were ready to seat us right away. The atmosphere is nice but nothing fancy. The food is decent but nothing that will blow your mind. The hummus was very tasty. Service was pretty decent by Panamanian standards: slow and semi-friendly. The staff was pleasant. We sat inside as it was too warm... More

The food at the restaurant was average and this is coming from a middle eastern person. I suggest you try the kebobs.

I wasn't sure what to expect from a middle eastern restaurant in Panama, but I was actually amazed. Unfortunately i can't remember the waiters name, but everything he recommended tasted great.

This place was very welcoming and the service was spot on. They had my son's cheese pizza out first and they were very accommodating for a family with two kids. We tried several dishes. I enjoyed the Taboulah salad and the chicken.

Can I tell you how much I loved the hookah? The shisha used was great...my favorite was ambrosia. It wasn't like those hookah places that after a short time the shisha. I wish I was in Panama longer so I could have tried all the flavors. Originally I had just gotten for the hookah but decided to try some appetizers.... More

Panama City has so many places that it's sometimes hard to choose. I was at Habibi's in 2010 and was impressed, as often, without a large community of its own, ethnic restauarants are less than stellar. Habibi's Rocks! Fresh salads, very tasty falafel, excellent kofte, and absolutely delectable baba ganoush. Hot sauce is pretty damn good but not authentically middle... More
