We've only been exposed to Greek food but this Lebanones food was equally delicious. I tried the cinnamon tea which had a subtle cinnamon flavor but much stronger mint flavor (which isn't my cup of tea) but ended up with the strawberry lemonade that was tasty.

We were craving Middle Eastern food today and found this wonderful restaurant in a great spot in old downtown Gresham. This was a real treat! When we walked in the door everything smelled so good inside. As soon as we were seated we ordered drinks. The fresh blended peach lassi was very good and refreshing. They brought out fresh made...

The food here is amazing if you like greek. I was happy when this name that was so familiar to me opened here in Gresham. The family owns another rest in Portland that I had frequented prior. The service is always warm and welcoming and you never will leave hungry.

Their falafel sandwich without onions is my favorite!!!! My two year old likes to dip the falafel balls in the hummus. My husband loves their Turkish coffee.

Food was good and is made by a first generation Lebanese family. Service can be a bit slow, especially during peak hours, but it is worth the wait in my opinion. We try to get in here once every couple months and would recommend to anyone who enjoys middle eastern / Mediterranean cuisine.

Definitely a place to eat if you like Mediterranean. I would recommend eating here based on solely on the deliciousness of the cuisine. I would not have someone that is in a hurry eat here because all of the table around us including ours waited up to 45 minutes. The naan does tide you over in the meanwhile and everything... More

Really like the food at this small Gresham Main street restaurant. The flat bread is delicious and the lamb was incredibly tasty. A little divey but it has good character.
