Description: Para voces entenderem um pouco da historia do Amir, ele era antes conhecido com o nome de Canadian Shop, uma Deli com produtos importados, que ao poucos foi virando restaurante. Mas a paixao dos proprietarios pela cozinha arabe falou mais alto. Aos poucos foram surgindo algumas mesinhas, kibes, esfihas, famosos pratos do dia. Bastou isso para dar um pulo! Hoje podemos afirmar que o AMIR e um dos mais tradicionais restaurantes arabes do Rio de Janeiro. Temos o maior cuidado de selecionar todos os nossos temperos e manter a qualidade de nossa cozinha. No Amir voce encontra deliciosos pratos como arroz com cordeiro, kibe cru, shawarma, sanduiche de falafel, homus e entre outros. Possui dois ambientes agradabilissimos onde se pode desfrutar o melhor da culinaria arabe!

We had dinner at Amirs and were very satisfied with the food overall. We had the lamb shawama and the vegetable plate. There was a lot of food for two people to share but the flavor of the meal was very nice. The staff were very nice especially the lady that helped us get some baklava to take away -... More

We had a mixed arab plate for two, enjoyed it very much. The aubergine paste tasted fantastic. The beer was very cold.

One of the best experiences lately for middle eastern food. Dinner service was nice and quick and food was served quickly and it was very tasteful. Highly recommend it as one of the dinner options while in Rio. Positive about this place in restaurant scene in rio: prices very affordable.

Tasty protein focused menu, we had the combo for 2 meal which was more than enough for us, you need a beer or something more than a caipirinha to offset the dryness but that not a bad thing. Friendly staff and a nice outside seating atmosphere.

This is an amazing arab restaurant in Rio de Janeiro. Actually this is one of the best restaurants in the city. Located just a few steps from the famous Copacabana Beach, this restaurant offers several options of arab plates. The deserts are also awesome.

After being recommended by a local and feeling like some fresh food in the heat of the Rio summer we made a reservation at Amir. Our meal and drinks were fantastic. We had a draft beer and natural juice (5rl each) and for mains we had the grilled meat platter for 2 people (95rl), a side of falafel (half portion-10rl)... More

This is located on Rua Ronalde de Carvalho in Copacabana one half block from the beach. The food is excellent and the portions are huge. They have live Mid-East music on the weekends. It is frequented by many locals.
