My wife and I went on a Friday night, the place was not crowded. We were seated and we waited for 20 minutes. The wait staff walked by us several times with no acknowledgement. After thirty minutes we stood up and left walking out in front of the wait staff, no one cared. Won't be back. Don't post a tripadvisor... More

This place by far was one of the best restaurants we have eaten in. The food is fresh, well prepared and extremely good. The whole staff was friendly. We had the vegetarian mizzo platter first. Oh yum. One of our group is vegan so male choices were available. Hubby has visited middle east on many occasions and found this food... More

The food at Ranoush is very good, but a bit pricey. Having said that, it's fresh, tastey and the service is good. We've been here several times (usually at lunch to enjoy their specials), but also at dinner. My wife is into more vegetarian than I am, but the Chicken Schwarma is excellent as others have noted. I have also... More

This was our first time here and I will definitely be back. The food was very flavorful, but a bit pricey, at least for lunch. The eggplant appetizer ( I don't remember which one, they had three) was excellent. Anyway, I really enjoyed it for something different.

When we want to eat fresh,healthy food full of flavor this is our go-to favorite! The food is always great! We usually go for lunch and there are menu items at a special price for lunch. We love the falafel pita wrap with a tasty salad. The vegetarian platter is delicious as is the chicken schwarma! You just can't go... More

Nice Middle Eastern environment. Grab a Hookah along with your food ( I did both separately). Try some appetizers because so there are so many of them

Been 4 times to this place. The best hummus around. Generous portions and good service. Chicken shawarma is the best I ever ate.

A large group of us (12+) ordered take out from Ranoush last evening. Many, including me, had never eaten there before. The restaurant is located in downtown Kirkwood on the east side of Kirkwood Road. Menu options seemed rather limited and I had no idea about the size of served portions. Between all of our separate orders, someone tried everything... More

Fun decor (murals, prints, lots of tile), fast friendly service, and wonderful food! It seems they have more outdoor seating than indoor, but that's just an impression. Lots of cushions and pillows in the outdoor dining gives the feel of a bazaar. Fresh food prepared quickly, with large portions. The falafel was moist, not dry and chokey. I could eat... More

We visited St. Louis (from Milwaukee) and literally stumbled upon this restaurant walking in the area. The food was FANTASTIC! The service great. Having eaten Middle Eastern on many occasions, I found the food here to be some of the best I've eaten. If I lived in St. Louis, this restaurant would be on my favorites list. Kudos!
