Nice hidden treasure

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... read 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

In town for a convention this past weekend and stopped in to Nadim's Downtown for lunch. They specialize in Lebanese food. I Ordered an Artichoke Salad with Turkey which was delicious, the romaine lettuce was fresh, the artichoke and roasted red peppers were tasty, topped with feta and turkey grilled on a kebab, all round most enjoyable. My only complaint,... More

First time visit . Waitress was a treat; direct and effective without fluff. Knew the menu and friendly. Wine list diverse w some lebanese varietals. App we picked were some beef pockets..dry and overall unimpressive . The entrée selection made up for it. Scallops picked by date were very good tho white butter sauce could have used a "something"..touch of... 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. They gave us the entire bar side of the restaurant to use. For appetizers they lined the bar with a variety of great dishes:... More

Stopped in for dinner w/ friends after attending a wake.We were all feeling lower than low. Fabulous service, delicious food ( try the scallops and the turnover appetizers!!) Left with happy tummies and our moods much lightened.

We typically eat in the "sister" restaurant in East Longmeadow, but our plans for the evening put us in Springfield, so we stopped here on a weeknight. We both ordered Turkey Kabobs with Fattoush salads and were in for a treat. Turkey is a meat that is frequently overcooked and dry, but these were moist and flavorful. A true delight.... More

The Fattoush and Falafel are out of this world. If they have Baba Ganoush on the menu do not hesitate. It's amazing as well. Another favorite is the vegetarian rice with lentils and crispy fried onions. Definitely check them out. Be sure not to confuse them with the one in East Longmeadow. They changed their name and menu. :(
