Great lunch buffet.

Similar to Karam's, but I only come for the lunch buffet. Food is hot and fresh. Very friendly staff. Highly suggested for a quick buffet lunch that is not fast food.

It was very friendly, and waitress was very helpful in suggesting different items and since we were how we could have a variety of foods to share. Also suggested wines that were different

The Wednesday night buffet is a great bargain and the food is delicious. It's a great choice for someone who is not too familiar with Lebanese food and wants to sample several different dishes. We've never been disappointed with any menu choice. There are a few American choices if you have someone in your party who is timid about ethnic... More

One of my favorite places for lunch. Serve an excellent Middle Eastern buffet Monday thru Friday. Shish-ka-bob meats are outstanding. Buffet is the only thing I've tried here. Don't think you will be disappointed.

Utica has many good ethnic restaurants. The Phoenician is a leader among the Lebanese ones. Their lunch buffet will satisfy even the hungriest and most demanding customer.

We all enjoyed the food, but the service was dreadful. Every step (being seated, getting menus, etc.) took about 3 times as long as it should. As it happens, we were fine with that and we needed some talk time; but it you want to eat and get on with your life it is definitely a mistake. They either have... More

We used to live in this area and the highlight of coming back is the opportunity to eat at this restaurant. The food is all fresh and home made, I look forward to ordering a little of everything and the leftovers we bring back with us to enjoy another day. This place is consistent and never disappoints, one of the... More
