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.

The food was excellent; the portions were generous, and the outside dining was a great atmosphere. We had a combination dinner for two (lamb and chicken) and both were moist and tender. The Arab pepper sauce that accompanied it was very tasty as was the Moroccan rice. The salad portion was huge; we could easily have gotten by with a... More

Delicious food. Expect some waiting on the weekends. We ordered the Combinated Plates and we had such a huge variety of food. So tasty!

Nice lebanese food, tasty and lots of it. The service is good and friendly, smiling and you don't wait very long for the food ordered. - Main plates can be accompanied with bread, salat and much humus or babaganush! There was enough for 2 persons to share - if you aren't like really hungry :) fair rate

Being a vegetarian is not easy in Brazil, so I'm really glad I found this place. It was so good I went two nights out of my four day stay in Rio! I stuck to the vegetarian options and was not disappointed. Just one tip: don't order any starters! Whatever you get, will be very generous! The prices are pretty... More

I went to this restaurant for to days ago. Very nice food, tasty and lots of it. The service was good, smiling and you don't wait very long for the food or just service- I only waited like 10 minutes or something like that for my food when I had ordered. - I ordered a plate with falafel (tasty falafels)...

I recommend the Lebanese potatoes (with fried onions, mint, garlic & cilantro). Nice outdoor location. Nice servers.

Tried this place twice, had an upset stomach right after first meal. Second meal was tasteless, they could have at least made shawarma taste better.

We went for a late lunch and asked for one of their combos. The food came in good quantity but quality was pretty bad. Grape leaves were super sour, as if fermented, babagganough was also sour, salad was wilted after sitting in the dressing for too long. Overall a pretty dire experience with an expensive bill to accompany it. Seems... More

Very good Middle eastern food, slightly salty for my taste but my partner Did not have an issue. Portions are HUGE so avoid getting a starter and a main dish each unless you are very hungry or you have a big appetite! Do not fret by other reviews saying the restaurant is in a bad neighbourhood, it was three blocks... More
