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.

Almanara is a kind of 'fashion' place to go and meet 'nice' people and in my opinion that's all. It is an extremelly expensive restaurant (perhaps because they are located in the most expensive places of Sao Paulo e.g. Morumbi, Jardins-Oscar Freire and Alphaville). At Oscar Freire there is no place for parking and the closest one charges around US$... More

Good lebanese restaurant. These chain is in almost any mall in São Paulo. It is almost fast food. Good service. Relatively inexpensive.

Not a lot of love put into their food... good traditional "Brazilian-Arabic" food, but nothing exceptional. Go if you're at a mall and have some time to eat and don't feel like seating the the crowded main food area
