Almanara brings the food very, very quickly and everything is delicious. Try the Salada Almanara and the Lentils Rice, both incredibly yummy. The esfihas are also great, and the Coalhada Seca is especially delicious here.

I had meetings in downtown São Paulo and a group of us decided to have a meal here. We just ordered a salad, hummus, baba ganoush, and sfihas. It was all very delicious. Oh, we also had the baked kibe which was great! Very enjoyable.

If you wish for a nice honest arabian meal do go to one of the Almanaras. They are at almost all nice malls here in São Paulo. Good simple down to earth food with a eastern feel.The homus is one of the best I ever tasted.

Good service average food and very expensive The hummus and the Michui is nice. Portion sizes are large so order accordingly. The choices for vegetarians are very limited I wasn't impressed with the choices for non veg main courses either over all average

Nice atmosphere and good food. Bundles are good but they should think of a "vegetarian" option as well. Besides these combos, veg can eat salads and some other very tasty typical dishes.
