what it takes to maintain excellence in the culinary world. This venue has been providing fine dining of slow cooked food, good wines and reasonable prices for decades. Last evening eight of us met here for dinner. Hameed, the co owner and head waiter, had prepared our table with his pleasant personality and warm smile. Our food choices were judged... More

We don't often end up in Bloomington, but we are now going to have to find a way to pass through more often, if for no other reason than to eat at this restaurant. The Chicken Manto was exquisite. I'm not sure I've ever had a meal that was more of a treat to my palate than this meal was.... More

Read great reviews of this restaurant on TripAdvisor, so finally got around to trying it. Food was unique and presentation was tasteful. Service was great. Waiter was polite and helpful. Property was very clean with nice ambiance. Will come again!

Had dinner at this restaurant, was impressed with the vegetarian selection. The food was very flavorful and the portion sizes were huge. The place is charming. I would recommend a reservation for a weekend dinner the place filled up quickly. The husband loved their beef.

Very good food, with a broad selection. Attentive service, though a portion of our order was miss-handled. The waiter offered to replace the dish, but we accepted it as-is. (And it was good!) Pricing is a little higher than 'Bloomington.' more similar to Chicago.

This restaurant is elegant and delicious. The staff was attentive without being overbearing. Really enjoyed it. We went for an early dinner during the week. Uncrowded and very nice.

This has been a favorite lunch buffet for me for many years and we occasionally come for supper or even just dessert. When I had a trade group of 30 in town I took them here for dinner. Partly they could accommodate us and partly it is good food and not one of the same everywhere chains. Try it and... More

Possibly the freshest quality and most expertly prepared meal you are bound to find in Bloomington, served by professional waiters and a caring staff in an immaculately clean restaurant!! Aside from being given paper napkins (this is a white table cloth restaurant and we were surprised by the paper napkins) frankly, we are not sure how we missed trying Samira's... More

We were driving around looking for a restaurant, and we fortunately found a parking spot near Samira's. The atmosphere in the restaurant was already so soothing and comfortable, and the gentle and professional service was the cherry on top. The food was exotic and delicious. The experience would have been perfect if the person sitting in the table next to... More
