“from Lebanon to Alhambra: staying truth to 'Arab' food”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

We've known Mr. Wahib and his family for 25 years, since he and his wife opened a lil nook with 6 tables, and he has always cooked himself, stayed present at the restaurant every day, and always delivered quality, taste, fresh food, never heard of any problems there; even his waiters and waitresses stay for a decade or so, The best food there, in our opinion, is: 1. the Imtabal (an artichoke cream, slightly lemony), which should be accompanied by, 2. kubéh (a crispy bunch of seeds, herbs, wheat deep fried); 3. the lamb in any manner; 4. the stuffed zucchini, cabbage, etc at the lunch bufette; the broiled chicken w. Mediterranean herbs & spices; 5. the kebabs (beef, chicken or, again our favorite, lamb). Go for the vegetables! stay for the lamb! God bless Wahib.

“Great family run place with Mideastern menu, great food”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

According to my uncle this place has been serving great mid-eastern food in Alhambra for decades. Its run by a Lebanese family and it was really a great place to eat and talk. We have been a couple of times and we always have the all you can eat buffet. Not that we need to eat that much but the menu is large, we can't choose just one item! This restaurant has very nice food and the price is reasonable. We don't have Mideastern food out where we live so it is a nice change of pace too. The service was great and personal. We will be back whenever we are in the area.

“great ayce”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

This place has delicious food. Always a packed house when I go. Theres a choice to dine regular or the all you can eat option. Prices are reasonable. I usually opt for the ayce option and taste all the food. Theres lamb chicken kabobs and delicious dishes. Best part is the garlic sauce.

“Great Value, Good Food”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

The service at this restaurant is great and portions are generous.
You could go for the buffet or menu. My favorite is the fish special, (under $10.00)
They bring Hummus to the table with warm pita bread and olives.
You also have a choice of soup or salad.
We always upgrade to Tabbouleh and Love making pita bread sandwiches with Hummus and Tabbouleh...YUMMY!
I end up taking most of my meal home. Try the Lamb and the Roasted chicken all is good, ENJOY!
