Description: Head chef & owner of Ranoush, Aboud Alhamid brings to Saint Louis the finest combination of Middle Eastern cuisine. Aboud hails from Syria, the heart of the Middle East. He incorporates his mom’s home & family recipes along with the freshest ingredients to Ranoush’s menu in order for customers to enjoy a truly authentic Syrian experience. Aboud has been working in the hospitality industry for more than twelve years around the world. He wishes to import the same fun & animated atmosphere here to Ranoush. Aboud is grateful to be here in the land of opportunity, realizing his dream of building cultural connections between the East and West through food & enjoyment. So what does “Ranoush” mean, you ask? It is an Arabic lady’s nickname – Aboud named his restaurant after his wife. Here at Ranoush, Aboud offers you the Syrian experience from the heart of the Middle East. Enjoy! And Ahlan wa sahlan!

“Great place in a great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014 via mobile

This is a great little restaurant. The service was excellent and so was the food. I've eaten here a few times and each time has been excellent. It's great Kirkwood location makes it easy to walk around downtown Kirkwood before or after.

“This place is great! Love going here for lunch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

I have been here several times for lunch and think it is a great deal! The food is delicious and the lunch specials are a steal! I get the veggie platter every time and have never been disappointed. I love middle eastern food and Ranooush does it right! The service has always been quick and everyone is very friendly. I have spoken to the owner before to let him know how much I enjoy the Kirkwood location. He was very sweet! Definitely come here if you are in the are and in the mood for some delicious, tasty and affordable lunch options.

“Gem of a Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

We have eaten here more than once always sharing the mezza for two. Excellent service and wonderful food. We've always gotten a table right away and the place is never overly crowded. The last time we were there on a Friday night at 7PM they had a belly dancer. One thing I enjoy is their iced tea with a mint sprig. We plan to take our kids with us next time.

“Love this restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

Ranoush in Kirkwood is so good... great for a date night, but equally fun when you have 4-8 people, because there are so many items on the menu that you'll want to share. Fun drink menu, and outdoor seating is good too.

“Wonderful Syrian Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

While shopping and exploring Delmar loop my friend and I were looking for a place for lunch. We saw Ranoush and it was packed! We felt that many people couldn't be wrong so walked inside. We were VERY lucky, the outside dining area was totally filled and as was the inside. A table had just become open as we walked in so we quite lucky. They have an extensive menu, our server was awesome, so friendly and helpful. We both decided on the chicken shawarma, wonderful!!! Everything on our plates was grand. What a delight of flavors! The food was perfectly prepared and very fresh. It was such a treat to experience authentic mid eastern food! I only wish this restaurant was closer to my home!!! The people were so friendly and let us know they valued our patronage. Totally enjoyable experience. I highly recommend Ranoush!!
