We had a great lunch

The food @ Al-Amir is really good! We had a very good lunch yesterday! We past the restaurant, but went back when we saw the 'Tripadvisor' on the window. So happy we came back for lunch!

This is the best Lebanese restaurant in PDX in my opinion. Everything tastes awesome here. The appetizers are amazing, the shrimp, the vegetables and the chicken are unbelievably good. We eat here at least once a month. The owner is so friendly that it makes you feel that you have visited a friend :) Highly recommended!

My family and I have been eating at Al Amir for many years now and find it to be top notch in every way. The food is fantastic, the service wonderful, and the atmosphere refreshing. I am really let down when restaurants play generic pop/jazz music in their ethnic restaurant......not at Al Amir!!! Always some very fun Middle Eastern music... More

My wife & I recently cruised the Med. with an Italian cruise company searching for good food. We visited 5 countries on our trip. The best food is here in Portland at Al Amir & one other. Av88tr.

We found by proximity while vacationing-wow! Great fresh Hummus, beautiful salad and such a delectable lamb dish! We met the owner, Moe, who is a kind and generous host. Overall a perfect evening!

Our first time here and very disappointed. We were the only table for most of our dinner and we should have taken that A hint. Were rushed to order and didn't have time to study the menu. When we asked waiter questions, none of us could hear him. He was not very nice and it was obvious he was just... More

Let me tell you... when you are here, you are family! The food is soooooooooooo delicious and fresh. The wait staff is very hospitable and on point. Everything they have is simply amazing. We went with a huge group, and they pretty much brought us the whole menu. So much food and it was all amazing!!

WE crossed the river and found this venue b/c our first choice did not have any parking space available East of the river. Great idea!! Our lovely and efficient waitress, Lydia, explained the dishes and brought a starter on the house. Our mains tasted super and since the portions are so generous we now have tomorrow's dinner in the fridge.... More

Possibly the least advertised but the absolute best Lebanese restaurant in Portland. In fact, the best I've experienced anywhere. Their Baba Ganoush is perfection, the other appetizers sublime ... hardly had room for the shrimp! (Box up the leftovers, if there are any). The bar is well-stocked, and when I asked if they could make me a Spanish Coffee to... More

The restaurant says its open till midnight but dinner serving is until 10:30pm and they blamed us as we came at 11:30pm and wanted to extra charge us for that. Additionally, the portions are extremely little and very expensive compared to other mediterranean restaurants we went to before.
