I feel in love with the Kebbe! The Chicken Shawarma sandwich is really goos as well. The sandwich toppings include parsley, tomato, pickled onions, pickled turnips, and Tahini sauce! Also the Tabouli was very fresh. The only thing I felt could be better was the comunication. I felt as though I was an outsider and it was a little uncomfortable. I just order to go and have solved that problem!

Before driving a half hour to eat here last night, we checked their website and it clearly stated "gluten free dishes available". The problem was- once we got there no one spoke enough english to know what that means. There were two working and neither seemed to know about celiac disease or gluten.
We didn't get what we ordered, but they did make us a whole new plate to take home with us.
The chicken kababs were excellent. I was a bit wary to try the rice as I had no idea what it was flavored and spiced with, plus the last time we had lebanese the manager warned that their rice was glutenous.
The food here ranged from ok to excellent depending on what we tried.
Overall, this place has potential. We had never been and it may be a while until we return, but we will return sometime in the future.

I wrote a glowing review for Habibi MetroWest in 2011. My husband and absolutely loved their Chicken Shawarma sandwich. Everything about the place was wonderful; fresh ingredients, delicious food and great friendly service. We ate there so many times last year the guys knew what we wanted when we walked in the door. We recently returned to the area and couldn't wait to go back to Habibi for lunch and our favorite Shawarma. We arrived and found one guy working the counter and the other was 'in the back'. (Neither of the men were ones we recognized from last year.) It took much longer to get our food, and when we took our first bite we both agreed that something was different. The garlic sauce was runny, dripping out of the end of the sandwich,and it just didn't have the flavor that we remembered from past years. We went back another day (just in case our taste buds were off) and this time the wait was even longer. Once again, the sandwich wasn't the same. I noticed one woman came in and when she saw the line, she left. I don't know if Habibi has had a change in management and/or staff, but I sincerely hope they are able to go back to serving the wonderful food they have in the past.

One of the worst restaurant I have tried. I wasted my time to reach it and I waste my money too. The casher lied a lot First, He said the Kabab will be 3-4 sticks and we got 2 sticks of kabab only. Second, He said Habibi restaurant is the only arabi Restaurant in Orlando. Actually, It seemed disgusting meat before order it. When we order Kabab meal, we got cold dried rice and meat. The meat by itself disgusting (the oder is not a beef or other regular meat) and totally indigestible (I was chewing them as a gum).
I wrote it to warn the the nice orlando vistors of a bad restaurant that I will never go there.

Thanks for reading my review.

Good good. Healthy and good value for money but service does not make it worth the while. My husband and I used to go there for lunch weekly but eventually stopped because they always made us wait 20 minutes or more and ignored us and were very rude. They are more interested in other things than their customers. Everything made in front of you and it takes less than five minutes to put it together but they don't care about their customers at all. Not going back and the last time I went I found a bone that I choked on
