Great Service

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

Had vegetable soup and it was good, save one issue, I wasn't finished and they took the bowl away. Veal was stringy but the rice was good. Fiancé had Chicken Shwarma said the chicken was similar in texture to a mouthful of sand. He didn't go past two bites, just to confirm. The pineapple juice was ok for me but... More

We stopped here after getting to our hotel in Panama City after a long day of traveling. A friend of mine told me they were open later than most places in the area. The food was very good and the price was moderate. Great spot if you like Mediterranean food!

Habibi's has always served delicious food. I have visited them a few times over the last few months and have had the same, good experience. I thought it was just me but my co-workers have also eaten here and echo my comments.

Our choice was more based on convenience as our taxi driver dropped us right in front of this restaurant.. We ordered chicken shawarma wrap and chicken shish tavuk.. The shawarma... More

After arriving in Panama City, we were really looking forward to indulging in some good Lebanese food. Habibi's, located on Calle Uruguay, was recommended to us and it had the advantage of being within walking distance. We ordered a plate of hummus to share, then ordered shawarma wraps...chicken for me, and veal for my wife, both with a side of... More
