Food was excellent. I have been in mideast 9 times and know good food. Be sure to get their hummus. But service was very poor, waiter was slow and nonresponsive.

Where do I start? I took my family for Ramadan iftar, and the experience immediately started off on an extremely bad note. The owners son got into a verbal and physical altercation with a customer and decided to spit in the customers face. Regardless of...who’s right and who’s wrong the owner and his staff should treat there customers with respect. The man who was spat on was an older gentleman, the age of most of our parents. The owners son then decided to beat up his whole staff who was trying to calm the situation. All while this is happening the owners son is trying to grab a hooka to hit the customer he just SPIT ON. Secondly the food was the worst I had in any restaurant in Patterson. You can tell they use cheap ingredients and only care about how much money they will make, not satisfying the customers. Third there was and is no social distancing standards for the buffet. To sum it up SAVE YOUR MONEY AND GIVE IT TO OTHER ARAB ESTABLISHMENTS IN THE AREA BECAUSE THIS ONE CLEARLY DOES NOT RESPECT OR CARE FOR ITS CUSTOMERS.More

Hummus is good but the service is very poor and cold treatment... The arais was very oily so avoid it. The platter is huge and good for 3 people. Falafel was good.

Staff was very disrespectful since the time we walked in. The food honestly is always good food and tasty since we have been a regular customer to this restaurant. I was personally was insulted with a server's name 'SAM' without any social distancing with a...ready to fight position in front of 11 members of my family including my wife and kids. There was a full 100% occupancy in the restaurant after we kept waiting 30 mins during the corona period I would rather have a more organized respected social distancing with a proper face masking policy's than waiting all that time and get insulted. It was really unpleasant experience after being a loyal customer for years. Owner of the restaurant handled the issue in a very good way but still the feeling it self, you need to have a better customer service.More

My family love Abu Ras. Usually food is very tender and juicy . But I was very disappointed with the quality of food I ordered today . I ordered full grilled chickens and it was burned and dry. No one touched it. Attaching pic here....The pita bread they gave us was cold and seems old . Please please don’t lower the quality of your food. I would to order again only if I get good quality Food.More

I came for lunch with my friends. The food is so delich. I got the beef shawerma sandwich, which unlike the places in Maryland where i came from, have a very decent amount of beef and minimal salad. The sandwich comes with fries and garlic...cream sauce. My friend got the half grilled chicken, i tasted it and it was awesome. Also the falafel is a must. Highly recommend it.More

The buffet had a large selection and all the food was delicious....The whole experience was great. I will be going back again.More

This place has me going back again and again for their falafel. It was very good. Flavourful and non-greasy. I am also a fan of their Beirut hummus, baba ghanoush, and tabouleh. Oh also unlimited freshly baked pita bread!

When we were there the patio was closed because of cold weather and the dining room on the left, which is fancier decor, was also closed. Due to a mechanical problem, the juice maker wasn't working, so the only drinks were canned soft drinks. The...menu is in English and Arabic and doesn't have many explanations of dishes but the waiter, a cousin of the owner, was very helpful. When he had trouble explaining one of the rice options due to limited language skills, he went to the kitchen and brought us a small sample! The food was fantastic and the servings were large. This dining room was a little drab as the other one was closed.More

One of the best dinners I have had in Paterson. Prices were extremely reasonable and the portions were very large. The service was excellent. The place gets full as the food is great. We will definitely be back.
