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. Nadim also has many non-Lebanese items on the menu that I have never ordered,... More

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. These were very good but a little heavy on the citrus. We ordered the falafel wrap and the kafta wrap. Both were very good. One of the... More

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.

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

We first tried Nadim's a few months back and really enjoyed their food. We met with Nadim and he was more than happy to accommodate our 35 person party for our wedding rehearsal dinner on 8/8/14.
