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.

This is one of my favorites in Gresham. Before they moved to Gresham, I considered it a real treat to be able to eat at their restaurant on SE Grand Avenue. Two of my favorites are the Lebanese salad, and the Chicken Kabab salad. We order it to go a lot. We are a senior couple, so we can split... More

Fantastic menu with appropriate soft music. Each table receives a very large serving of pita bread with condiments, and the meal gets better as the evening goes on. Friendly staff who know what each menu item is as well as how spicy and how it is prepared. Right in the middle of Main Street in Gresham. The owners have a... More

Great service, very friendly staff. I had never had Lebanese food before and I must say I will be back. If you go try the lamb. My wife had a combination type plate and enjoyed all of it. Dinner was a little pricy but worth it.

Went with family, and was a little brighter than I expected- I almost needed sunglasses! BUT the food was really great. I had the beef shawarma and probably should have listened to the waitress when she said she liked the chicken version but it really wasnt bad, the saffron rice is AMAZING. Seriously. My boyfriend had chicken kababs and that... More

Nice restaurant on the pretty part of Main Street in Gresham. The atmosphere and service were both good. They brought a huge pita to share to the table along with olive oil with some herb blend - it was just okay as the pita was very floury (maybe not cooked through) and the herbs in the oil mix were bland....

If you are looking for different choices for gluten free diet their menu is one of the best. Food is always fresh and seasoned perfectly.

We are regulars at the Gresham and Portland locations. However, the Gresham location is VERY SLOW (very few people in the restaurant) with getting the meal out. Our waitress was inattentive, forgot to bring a beverage, and took too long to get us our check. On top of it, a table with 4 adults and 2 young boys allowed these... More

Was taken here by some business associates. I am not an expert in Mid-Eastern food but enjoyed every bite. So....have an adventure and go!
