“Great food and service”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Loved the menu and service. The food was great and I tried some unique items but they still had all the favorites like hummus and naan. VERY reasonably priced too.

“Great casual dining.”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

My wife and I visited our son for a week in Portland and he recommended we eat at this restaurant. It was so good that we ate at it again the night before we left for home. We ate at the restaurant at 318 SE Grand, but there are two other locations in the area. The first time we arrived at 5PM and there were just a few tables available. The second time we arrived an hour later and had to wait about 20 minutes for a table. A frequent patron said that long lines are the norm. I had the beef shawarma and lamb kebabs and they were wonderful. My wife had falafel and baba genouj both times and thought they were terrific. The restaurant is in a small store front and they do squeeze in a lot of tables and they do attract families with kids so it isn't a place for intimate conversation or a romantic rendezvous, but the excellent food, the extremely friendly and capable service and the very reasonable prices make this a top choice for eating in Portland, a city with lots of great restaurants.

“Thank you sis.”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

My sister-in-law introduced us to Nicholas in September of 2013. We immediately fell in love. We have been back five times since (it is now April 2014). That is saying a lot for a family that rarely eats out (usually a couple of times per month or less). We love the food, even our four kids love it. The cost pretty much can't be beat, we have fed our family of six for $35 (including a 20% tip) and we all went away full. The management is great and so is the atmosphere. When my SIL took us we were worried that it would be spicy but we were pleasantly surprised. The food is full of flavor. The kids call it the place with the big bread. We spend here about what it would normally cost us to eat fast food but the food is MUCH better.

Reasonable price,
Authentic,
Good service,
Lebanon pulls you out of the USA for a hour and your magic carpet paints your soul,
You become as strong as the ancient cry that called you in in the first place.
Youll wish all your life was so cool as a kebab!

“Great Dinner. Great Value”
Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

Service was quick but not pushy. Great atmosphere. Food was very tasty and fresh with great alternatives for vegetarians. Staff was very friendly.
