We went here because we had a coupon, but were very pleasantly surprised. We chose to sit outside, found the waiter to be extremely helpful in describing the dishes. Our plates included a variety of selections including hummus, baba ganoush, mujadara, falafal, and Mediterranean Shrimp. The portions were generous and we had a lovely time. Look forward to returning in... More

The falafel and salmon on a plank were delicious, but that's where it ends. We were told there was a hour and a half wait so went to get a drink at the bar. We waited 15 minutes for the bartender to even look at us, and she was very curt with us. Meanwhile, there were literally half a dozen... More

Thanks for joining us on Saturday night, and although I'm pleased you enjoyed your meal, I'm quite sorry we fell short on the service. I'm afraid I stretched myself a little thin last weekend. Due to the Jazz festival and a large wedding banquet we catered off-site, the majority of our staff were out of the restaurant. I decided to... More

A visit to Nadim's is always one I look forward to. The servers are friendly and knowledgeable of their menu. The menu has numerous creative appetizers and wonderful entrees. It's hard not to order the fresh fish- Swai with artichokes, with Nadim's special rice that includes lentils and carmelized onions. For apps- Baba ganoosh, hummachos with chips, and the fried...

I proposed this restaurant to my NH And VT nonprofit colleagues and it was a great choice. The first thing I noticed was how classy the atmosphere was. We all chose different items for their mini- feast to share family style (it doesn't have to be the chef's choice). It was not mini! Our server explained everything and was extremely... More

This local eatery is not spectacular, the menu is limited, portions are not anything special, salad does not come with your entree. The service was average, the place is small and the ambiance is just okay. Other patrons sit too close to you and their conversations were intrusive. The parking is horrible since its on Main St. and there's construction

We're a popular spot and we try our best to accommodate everyone as best we can within our 100 seat capacity dining area. We do have an extensive menu ranging from salads, appetizers to mains for both vegetarian and meat diets, so I am surprised the... More

Nice to have the option of middle eastern dining during the trip. Tabouleh salad was very light on the grain -- when we mentioned this to the manager, she pointed out the grains scattered among the parsley (which rather proved our point).

Jennifer, thanks for stopping by! We like to keep a balance of grains and greens in our salad, but we're always happy to remake a dish so it's more to your liking. Traditional Tabouli has very little wheat germ and this is the same recipe that I grew up with. Hope you'll be back, so we can create something you... More

My wife and I love middle eastern food and we were looking forward to our dinner at Nadim's. We were disappointed. The service was OK. The atmosphere was more sports bar than anything else.

From the amazing baba ghanoush made with wood fired grilled eggplant, to the unbelievable lentil soup made with orange lentils, there is nothing but good food and excellent service to be had at Nadim's. Informal, and a little loud when busy, they also have a great center bar with talented barkeeps.
