I have been to this place several times. Food is good when restaurant is not busy. Tables are dirty outside and inside. Bathrooms.....not so clean..... Too many Waiters and Waitresses, not sure why when they can't deliver the food on time...

Excellent lunch buffet. Authentic food (a Lebanese friend of mine first brought me here) with a good atmosphere. The food is fresh and very high quality. Highly recommend. Get there early for the lunch buffet as it fills up fast. Oh, and the pastries and ice cream are also excellent.

This place was recommended to us by our Mediterranean friends. They told us the food was great and they were right! Everything was fresh and very tasty. It is a buffet and they replenish very often with fresh food. The only drawback is that the lines are very long at peak times and if you want seconds on an item... More

The weekday lunch buffet is excellent with a great selection. It gets really full so go early or late. When we go for dinner I love the falafel plate. The chicken shwarma was dry the one time I got it.

Watched an old episode of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives where this place was featured. Decided to try it and so glad we did. Love Mediterranean food and this place delivered. The food was fresh and delicious. We each had a kebab plate and enjoyed every bite. The deserts were freshly made as well and very tasty. The clientele was a... More

Two diners, different choices. Both wonderful. My guest had the grilled chicken breast marinated in lemon, garlic and olive oil and served with a garlic/horseradish sauce, hummus and baba bannouj with thinly sliced garlic dill pickles and pickled turnips. I had the lamb kabobs grilled with onions and tomatoes and served with tahini sauce, basmati kabsa rice with carrots, onions... More

I saw the reviews on Triple D and decided to stop in for dinner. I was impressed as they had a greeter open the door for me and take me to a table. My server was very friendly and made many recommendations for dinner as I told her this was my first time there. I ended up getting a shawarma... More

A great selection of middle eastern cuisine and tasty. We especially liked their appetizers. However, its setting was less desirable, felt eating in a neighborhood Mom & pop pizza restaurant. All servers were teenagers. We came about 1:30 PM on Sunday, and it's crowded; and got the last table inside. Definitely not a place to bring a date. We may... More

After only 3 weeks being in Dallas, I was becoming totally underwhelmed by the lack of diversity in this town. Afrah was a huge breath of fresh air. I love middle eastern cuisine and was blown away by the quality of the food at Afrah. We went for the lunch buffet, which is reasonably priced, and we left FULL! Everything... More
