The Lebanese dishes are fantastic. Nadim's Baba Ghanoush (sp?) is the best I've had anywhere. Delicious choice for our vegetarian family members but delicious kebabs and grilled meats for the carnivores among us. Salads are well done and of course the felafel and humus are terrific.

Their menus covers all varieties of protein. And their special rices come straight from the Middle East

I always visit Nadim's when I am in Springfield on business. The baba ganoush is amazing! Everything is so fresh and the service is friendly, fast and helpful.

My husband and I were in Springfield to attend a concert at the Mass Mutual center. We wanted a good restaurant within walking distance. Nadim's came highly recommended so we decided to try it.

We went to lunch here today for the first time. It was a holiday so there were very few people in the shop. We were seated immediately. We had the vegetarian grape leaves.

Food is great but a little pricey. Atmosphere is outstanding including an outdoor patio in which you can actually buy tobacco to smoke out of one of their hooka pipes! If your feeling adventurous the raw kibbi meat is a great thing to try.

Thank you for your review, we look forward to seeing you again and have some hookah outside on the patio. Raw Kibbie is awesome we had to bring it back on every Friday and Saturday. More

If you are looking for top notch Middle Eastern cuisine at reasonable prices, then this is the place in downtown Springfield. The lentil soup was delicious. Can't go wrong with any of the appetizers. Falafels were perfectly cooked and the side of tahini/humus made it even tastier! We had the chicken kabob which was excellent. If you have room for... More
