We booked the restaurant at 24 gours notice for a group of 25 colleegues from around the world in town for a meeting. The owner/manage could not be more helpful and hospitable. We had a feast of many course, a true meze coveing all the of the main typical Lenabes dishes for a very modest $25 USD. The red Lebanese... More

Party of 6 seated promptly and server took drink orders. He suggested that he bring us the meal family style which included many different dishes ranging from appetizers to entrees to deserts. Very ample quantity and all was excellent. .

This is a pleasant, attractive and unpretentious ethnic restaurant. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the food is good and hearty, and the prices are reasonable. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and the culinary change of pace from American standards. Small but decent wine list fairly priced.

My husband and I talk about this place days before we actually get back to Portland to come for dinner. The staff treat you like family and could not be more welcoming. I dream about the baba ganoush with its delicious smokey flavor. I can find their hummus and baba ganoush at Fred Myer, but it's not the same as... More

This Lebanese restaurant has been around for almost three decades now. It is located in the Bishop's House building on Stark St. It is not a fancy place but the food is very good. Honest, simple Lebanese specialties as you would expect. Very good & friendly service. Prices are reasonable to mid-price. If you are looking for good Arab food,... More

Enjoyed the baba ganoush in the mixed starter, but to be honest the rest of food was just ok. We ate quite early, so perhaps better atmosphere later

Excellent Lebanese Cuisine!!! I could not resist trying an array of items on the menu. The tabooli bursts with the perfect combination of fresh parsley and lemon. Falafel, baba ghannooj, kibbi sineeye, and hummus provided delicious previews and accompaniments for the entrees. My pallet continued to soar with every bite of the succulent lamb chops.....amazing harmony of flavors. Dessert emerged... More

Portland has a lot of opportunities to try ethnic cuisine, and Al Amir certainly has to be among the best. The food is top notch. We particularly enjoyed the appetizer sampler platter and the various kabobs. The service is outstanding - some of the best we've received anywhere. The restaurant is housed in an interesting historic building (it's worth reading... More
