Consistent quality and service

We went back to Maroosh Mediterranean Restaurant last night, after not visiting it for over 6 months. Can't imagine what kept us away! We were received (sans reservation) quickly and very friendly by the staff, seated in just a few minutes and promptly waited on. As usual, the food is just... read more

There are not that many middle eastern restaurants in Miami. However, living in the Gables area for the last few years this was a place that I had been wanting to go for some time. Weekends is always packed and while there are many dining option in Coral Gables, I always ended up elsewhere. Driving by on a week day... More

Great place never fails to satisfy. Appetizers of meat with hummus and stuffed vegetarian grape leaves were delicious. Lemon chicken was well cooked and enough for two. Been there at night with belly dancer. If any complaints is that sometimes with the entertainment it can get a little loud. Good for business, family and couples.

This spot in the heart of Coral Gables has some of the best, most authentic Arabic food in South Florida. The owner is always present, making sure that everyone is having an excellent service experience. The lemon chicken with artichokes is the best here. Come by on Fridays and Saturdays for the belly dancers! Highly recommended!

I hadn't been here in a good while so we decided to go. Because their appetizers are so terrific, we ordered a few and decided to wait on any entree. We had baked kibbe, hummus, baba ganouj, falafels. The Almaza (Lebanese) beer is really good and goes well with these dishes. We split a vegetable curry but added shrimp, it... More

This restaurant has a nice, lively vibe, with happy, eager to please servers. Intermittently, there are belly dancers to entertain. We shared a Greek salad and hummus , in this cutely decorated Mediterranean restaurant , Both were very good. For dinner we had chicken skewered with rice and another chicken dish in a tomato base. Both were nicely seasoned and... More

I have been attending this restaurant every time I vist my Dad in Miami and we always love the food in this restaurant. We are Arab and it reminds us of our family dinners with my grandparents. I have tried almost everything on the menu and have really enjoyed all of it.

A Gables stable, this wonderful restaurant is consistently delicious. You can tell the ingredients are fresh. The owner is constantly circling to make sure all is good...for me a great sign that he is proud of what he is offering. We always have the hummus, the kibbeh, and the lamb kabobs. Prices are super reasonable. Even with wine, dessert and... More
