I've eaten here several times, always for lunch. There is a buffet with lots of delicious choices. I sometimes get the chicken shawarma salad which is a lot of food and but so good I eat it all. service is very good.

Oasis serves the best Mediterranean food I've ever eaten. It's our favorite restaurant in Lexington, and sometimes we drive from Corbin (90 miles) just to eat there. It's clean and comfortable and the service is excellent.

Went there Tuesday for quick bite and wanted something vegetarian as Lexington doesn't have too many choices for vege food.. Seated right away and it was pretty full already around 5.30 pm... Ordered falafel, Labneh with garlic and vegetarian lover.. It came with lentil soup and pita bread.. Soup was good but didn't like pita bread.. I really liked Labneh... More

Well, I went there with my wife yesterday for a quick lunch. We tried the buffet and it was terrible. the falafel was hard like a rock, probably been there for more than a week, and they re heat them and serve it. the salads were like 2 days old. nothing is fresh! Service was not that great. Not going... More

The place is small and not particularly well decorated, but has a small family feel and great food. The service and prices are good and there isnt usually a long wait for a table. A lot of takeout orders from locals come in and go out quickly. The rice is simply but very flavorful, hummus, pitas, falafal, grape leaves, swarme,... More

Very good food. Great buffet. I love the clove tea here. If you get the dinner for two be prepared for so much food it lasts 2 more meals. Highly recommend.

We have been here for dinner twice in a month, and each time was delicious. Lots of food for not a lot of money. I had the chicken kabob pita wich-wich with garlic sauce and pickles. I love garlic, and this roasted garlic sauce was fantastic. My dinner companions ordered the veggie sampler. It consisted of dark rice, moussaka, falafel,... More

We went during lunch and got the buffet. Lots of different selections in the food over all was good. The owner/chef was very tentative to making sure the buffet was supplied. Neat little place in Chevy Chase. Would deathly go back again.

Thank Harold U
