Dallas and Richardson are a wild jungle when it comes to Mediterranean restaurants. Afrah has survived the test of time and has maintained its popularity amongst the many new restaurants that opened over the past 10 years. It's a testament to the simple yet authentic Mediterranean dishes that are served with passion and quality.

I usually get my favorite chicken kabobs, but this time I accidentally ordered the chicken shwarma instead. I was not sorry. The chicken was moist and flavorful. The kabsa rice is excellent too. The hummus is lackluster. Overall, this is a great restaurant and our favorite when we want to eat Middle Eastern. By the way, as of late February... More

Liked the variety of new flavor combinations. Looking forward to the opening of the new restaurant next door - they seriously need the space! Food was typical ingredients but put together differently from my traditions - enjoyed the flavors.

stopped here because we had an appointment in the area. What a great find. The lunch buffet was very good. All buffet items are well marked so there is no question on what you are eating. The vegan dishes are also marked. They also have in house made Arabic sweets and probably 12 choices of Gelato, at an additional charge.... More

Right off Central Expressway in Richardson. The lunch buffet is good and has a lot of variety. It tends to get quite crowded, but that should be solved once the new, much larger building next door is completed. Looking forward to that opening!!!

We came at lunchtime for the $9.99 buffet. We arrived early and thus avoided the rush. The doner meat was a bit dry but everything else: hummus, falafel, stuffed squash, lentil soup, greek salad, kebab chicken, etc. were excellent. Try it at least once - you'll be glad you did!

There were not many restaurants open for thanksgiving, but we were delighted that Afrah was. We had the huge starter for 4 and hardly needed the main courses. The lamb was outstanding, very tender. Fish and beef were well cooked. Large helpings of beef. Service was great the only slight negative it's the furniture is a bit run down.

We went on Sunday night and the place was crowded. The food was reasonable and tasty. We all had pita wraps with some appetizers (tabouli, yogurt, and eggplant); all good. The garlic sauce was powerful but tasty.
