The ambiance, the experience is all good. Where it goes downhill is the food options for vegetarians and the prices. This place is not worth the money specially for vegetarians. The dancers here were alright, felt the dancers in Juliana were much better. Also the food and the people who serve at Juliana were nicer.

Beautiful decorum and very friendly staff, however not too many vegetarian choices. Couple of appetizers and one main dish had to do. We did not stay for a show. There is no more hookas allowed.

I've been going to Alhambra for the past 4 years and I'm always pleased with their dedication to customer service and the quality of their food. The appetizers are authentic and delicious and their meat dishes are complex in their flavors and done just right. On the weekends, expect lots of entertainment and International flair to say the least.

The menu has a great selection and the lamb is really good. Their prices are pretty high but maybe that's to be expected when eating in a palace? On Saturday nights they have belly dancing in the main ballroom.

Decor was fantastic. Food was ok and entertainment was average. Service was prompt and friendly. Do not try to have a conversation over the bachelor parties.

Do not go here. I repeat do not go here. The music is bad and just not worth it. Plus, the waiters are rude and the show is simply a tourist trap. Trust a fellow TA reviewer.

The food is good, but I come here for the ambiance - the place is stunning. Basically a palace right here in Chicago.
