We visited this restaurant a few days ago. The service was a bit slow...took several minutes to get water. One of the waiters was rude. We asked if we could sit at a particular table, and he said that it was reserved. We then saw some guests who we saw exploring menus at restaurants down the street come in and... More

We ate at Habibi three times on a recent trip to Portland. That says something about the food: depending on what you order, it can be great. However, the service is terrible, or was for us. The servers were rude, inattentive and dismissive and it totally spoiled our experience. We will not make the mistake of returning. The first time... More

I love this place and constantly crave their schwarma's, served with some delicious hummus and a yummy salad. My husband likes the lamb and I love the chicken. The atmosphere is authentic and the staff are very warm. I've also tried their falafel -- still yummy and my friends swear by the lentil soup. They have some limited outside seating... More

I just love Habibi in downtown Portland. I have to smile every time I think about it. The people there are wonderful, always so welcoming. And I never tire of the food -- which is a good thing, I guess, because I always order the same thing: tabbouleh, hummus, lentil soup, spanakopitas, plus their classic (strong!) mint tea. (I go...

Writing this review is long overdue for me. Habibi is a great place to eat, and we must have visited 30 times over the last 5 years. We recommend it to everyone and always bring new friends, who love it too. It is consistent, friendly, and delicious. Happy hour plates are served all day, every day, and can easily comprise... More

I enjoyed my lamb kabob on plenty of flavored rice, served with a large, hot, light pita. I ate all of everything, including the salad. Good thing I wasn't in a hurry, so I could savor it all. The garlic sauce is a delight to garlic-lovers like me. The server put extra on my plate when I mentioned how much... More

One of my favorite places to eat in Portland. The service was excellent and the food amazing. Their hummus is some of the best outside of the Middle East. Will definitely keep coming back each time I'm in Portland!

I love Middle Eastern food and I wasn't disappointed here. We just happened upon Habibi and decided to try it. The server was pretty nice, though not exceptionally friendly. I thought the food was great - the falafel was delicious. The chicken shawerma was excellent and the hummus was just right. The tabouli salad was a little different than what... More

Come from a Lebanese family, so I was glad to see authentic food. The staff were hilarious and great with everything. Try the Mezza platter!
