A hidden treasure on Morrison Street

Habibi is excellent Middle Eastern food. You are greeted by a charming young man that will lead you to your seat. In Middle Eastern tradition you are allowed to linger as long as you like following the dinner. I have enjoyed their shawarma lentil soup. Do eat it Palestinian style by tearing up... read more

My wife recommended Habibi because she had dined there before with friends. Thinking she has pretty good taste we decided to try it on my birthday. In my opinion the food was not that great. I had the artichoke casserole which tasted like canned artichokes dropped in a bowl of tomato sauce. It was very bland, not very filling, and... More

The bread was warm. I went their with my Taiwanese and Turkish friends. They were happy too. One of the chef's recommended course was great (sorry. I don't remember... More

Great food..everything we ordered was delicious, the portions were huge, and the hummus was worth the stop all by itself.

We decided to venture into a cusine that we have little experience. Lebanese! And it was delicious. We ordered cocktails and I spotted the Pometini, it did not disappoint. Pomegranite juice and lemon vodka shaken not stirred and very smooth. Our entree was a meat trio of chicken, beef and lamb nestled on a bed of flavorful rice. Portions were... More

First off, let's talk parking. Habibi is on SW Morrison in downtown Portland, so parking on the street cannot be relied upon. Habibi is just a couple blocks west of Downtown Nordstroms. There is a parking garage at 10th and SW Morrison. 10th is a one way street going North and the entrance and exit to the garage is on... More

Service was almost too fast, but the quality of the food was very good. Great falafel, but you better eat the pita fast, since it's homemade and becomes brittle as it cools. Good value.
