Excellent Food, Friendly staff, Home-made goodness

The lamb here is so succulent and tasty, I've never had better. Home-made desserts, are fresh and delicious. All the sides: arnabit, babganoush and fatoush salad are really good too. All this plus BYOB! This is a casual "mom + pop" small restaurant where you will find yourself at home and well... read more

Only my second visit there. But this time tried many different foods since I was there with a lot of family members. Had a lot of appetizers. Liked most of them. Next time I would try a meal. My family who live there frequent the place.

I had been told by a Palestinian friend, that there were several very good Middle Eastern restaurants in Allentown, PA. The only problem was I neglected to get the names of those restaurants. We were going to be in the area, so I looked up several and Damascus seemed to be a good choice. It was a Friday night and... More

I always have to visit Damascus restaurant whenever I am in Allentown. Their selection of Mediterranean type salads are unbelievable. The grandma's tomato salad, cabbage salad, mushroom salad, potato salad, tabbouleh are always delicious and fresh. This visit I only had four salads, pita bread and a yogurt drink.

The food at Damascus is always great! I ordered the cabbage salad and grandma to make the salad. We shared all of those. Very fresh. High quality ingredients. We had an appetizer of hummus with some type of ground beef which was season on top. Serve with pita bread. Two of us had the kafta sandwich served on pita .... More

The Damascus' tag line is "Food so good you'll think we stole your mother". Well my mother didn't cook much Syrian food. and certainly not this good - so I think it goes the other way. You know it is fresh and homemade as you can watch your food being prepared by mother - and father - in the back... More

My family loves Syrian food and Damascus is the answer. Lunch or dinner every month for many years. Myself find the Kofta Kebab platter with a unique taste

We started to visit this restaurant three years ago during our ski trip to Blue Mountain. We found a hidden gem. All of the food is exceptional. We enjoy the fried zucchini, hummus, falafel appetizers and kabob and malfoof platters. The restaurant caters to children as well. Make room for desert. The chocolate baklava is heavenly. This is by far... More
