“SO SLOW, disruptive kids”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

We are regulars at the Gresham and Portland locations. However, the Gresham location is VERY SLOW (very few people in the restaurant) with getting the meal out. Our waitress was inattentive, forgot to bring a beverage, and took too long to get us our check. On top of it, a table with 4 adults and 2 young boys allowed these 2 boys to run circles and yell for over 2 minutes. VERY DISRUPTIVE. No one from the staff asked them to quiet their kids.
Food is great but they seem to get take out orders wrong and they are FAR TOO SLOW.
We have had service and slow meal issues every time regardless if it is busy or slow.

Was taken here by some business associates. I am not an expert in Mid-Eastern food but enjoyed every bite. So....have an adventure and go!

“Our favorite Lebanese Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014

Nicholas has several locations in the Portland area. The one in Gresham is closest to us and we think the best! The food is always tasty with the perfect blend of spices. They source their food locally and use organic wherever possible. My wife doesn't eat wheat so the gluten-free pita bread is a big treat for her. And I like it too. Their lamb kabobs are the best I have ever eaten. And their drinks are wonderful too.

The wait staff and management are fun, welcoming and provide excellent service. We highly recommend Nicholas.

“Good place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

We went with a large group. Unfortunately they were busy so the service was very poor. We have been here before when traveling so we are giving them the benefit of the doubt.
Otherwise the food is good, plentiful and normally the service is decent.
