Almanara is always a good option no matter where however this one I believe it is one of the best. Great environment, friendly staff and fast quality food. Mezze is a great way to start. Almanara salad is really good. Rise and lentils is a perfect option. Pineapple with mint juice is great.

This is a restaurant specializing in mediterranean/greek food, and their menu is an odd mixture. My traveling partners ordered the sesame chicken, which was delicious, and I ordered a roast beef sandwich that came on a very flat circle of bread not unlike pita, but not quite pita. It was toasted and tasted okay, but had way too much cheese... More

Had lunch with business client today. Incredible food. Hummus was great, tabule was incredible, kafta was nice. Homemade pita bread was to die for! Highly recommended!

We stumbled on this restaurant by accident on the way to a grocery store near our hotel, and it was a very happy surprise! Excellent Lebanese food, especially the beef kabob! Also great service in a quiet and relaxed ambience.

The food here is solid reliable Middle Eastern. Nothing was spectacular but it was all well done. The hummus was the best item we had. It doesn't come with bread and bread portions consist of a single pita. The beruits ( sandwiches) are massive and easily could feed 2. The kibbee was bland. The atmosphere is comfortable and relaxed.

Every time I go to Alphaville I bee line to Almanara. I've tried multiple things on their menu and they rarely disappoint. It's got very prompt and courteous service, the best Middle Eastern food around at a reasonable price. Would recommend it to anyone who likes Middle Eastern food.

Very consistent, extremely good Lebanese food. Have visited this place many times in the last 3 years and it has always been very good, with excellent service and very fast. Continues to be a favorite in the Alphaville area for me.

Visited this place many times. Still very good! The buffet is awesome, every day fresh - the beef quality / taste is one of the best in town.
