Great Food!

We went to Habibi's the first night in Panama City. And being quite close to our Hotel (el Panama) it was a nice little walk to get here. The selection of food is fantastic and even as a vegetarian and vegan we found a variety of foods we could enjoy. Even though it's quite pricey with regards to... read more

Middle Eastern cuisine, delicious and seemingly authentic. Service was friendly and the waiter's advice was not self serving. Portions are generous. There is a patio Hookahs available for those that indulge. The location is convenient to most financial district buildings and hotels

We were pleasantly surprised although we did use TripAdvisor as a guide. The kibi appetizer was deliciously flavored lebanese style and although fried it was flash fried and not greasy. The grape leaves were good (although not special), the greek salad was seasoned well and the eggplant babagnoosh eggplant did was delicious! It was smoked to perfection with a light... More

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.
