Love this place

Every time I go to Alphaville I bee line to Almanara. I've tried multiple things on their menu and they rarely disappoint. It's got very prompt and courteous service, the best Middle Eastern food around at a reasonable price. Would recommend it to anyone who likes Middle Eastern food.

The food here is solid reliable Middle Eastern. Nothing was spectacular but it was all well done. The hummus was the best item we had. It doesn't come with bread and bread portions consist of a single pita. The beruits ( sandwiches) are massive and easily could feed 2. The kibbee was bland. The atmosphere is comfortable and relaxed.

Very consistent, extremely good Lebanese food. Have visited this place many times in the last 3 years and it has always been very good, with excellent service and very fast. Continues to be a favorite in the Alphaville area for me.

Visited this place many times. Still very good! The buffet is awesome, every day fresh - the beef quality / taste is one of the best in town.

The food is good and fresh but not always served with a smile. We always order the stuffed grape leaves and the hummus. Both are very tasty. The pita is made in house and really good. Freshly prepared juices are really worth trying.

Went in during an off-hour...A nice set up in a great neighborhood. One of the staff spoke English .. Focus is on fresh fruit shakes. Tried a few of those. The recommendation of sesame chicken with Lebanese rice was awesome. Quite filling for one person and the prices were reasonable

Very nice Lebanese dishes, with excellent and fast service. Kebabs are very good! I have visited it many times as it is conveniently located near the Radisson hotel in Alphaville.

Service was good as well as location. Food was good, but really more like tapas than full meal. Service was quick and efficient. Walking distance from Quality suites and Radisson.
