Back home, I frequent a number of Middle Eastern, Lebanese, Syrian and even a Persian restaurant. So, I consider myself pretty familiar with the cuisine - and quite fond of it! Habibi did not disappoint! The menu was extensive and varied. We ordered several meze, and several entrees, and all were terrific. A few in our party were skeptical of... More

Stopped quickly for happy hour on a rainy weekday. Nice happy hour specials until 11 PM on food. Had a very good lentil soup. Very disappointed in the baba - thin and bland with none of the characteristic smokiness of baba where the eggplant has had a proper roasting. Pita was a floppy store bought disk. Lots of Lebanese style... More

I went to Habibi with 5 friends, 3 of whom had never had Middle Eastern Food. As a lover of the Middle East and all their food options we had a great time exploring the menu by ordering Veggie and Meat Mezza Platters as appetizers for the group to get a taste of as many options as possible. The Happy... More

We were quite happy with our meal (mezza) on February 15, so we ordered through prime now (Amazon) two weeks later. We were disappointed that portions were much smaller (the salad in particular). We will not be ordering through Amazon again, and we may not visit the restaurant again.

I do not claim to be an expert on Syrian or Lebanese cuisine, but we have enjoyed various types of food across the country and elsewhere in the world. I do make hummus at home (with good reviews) and enjoy lamb dishes, so we picked Habibi for Valentine's Day dinner. I called ahead to see if they expected to be... More

Basically nice atmosphere. Non-authentic shawerma, but amaaazing lamb kebabs. My friends tried the kunafa, it was average by an Arab's standard

The food is good, and one can make a decent meal from the happy hour menu, although it's more a small plate than a happy hour menu. It comes pretty quickly, too. But there's nothing to distinguish it from the food at another decent Middle Eastern restaurant. The cocktail they call "the Mistress" is not bad either, worth a try... More

Every single time we eat here, we have a fantastic experience. The owners are really nice, the staff is friendly. Service may be a little slow, but we're OK with that, it gives us time to talk and enjoy our evening, not being rushed out of the place. We love the place so much that we had Habibi make all...

This casual place has great food. The atmosphere is laid back with a friendly staff. We found enough appealing dishes on their menu to come back twice during our week long stay in Portland. In a town with so many restaurants, this pretty much says it all about how much we enjoyed it.

The food was very good. We ordered shawarma with rice and falafel, and a kebab. The food was fresh and the rates are reasonable. The owner is very amicable. We had a good time. The ambiance is very casual and cafe like. We sat and chatted for a while, there was no rush to eat, especially as it was a... More
