“Excellent take out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

We ordered the rice plate with chicken as takeout. It was delicious! The chicken was tender, and the rice was well spiced. The portion was very generous - enough to feed two adults satisfactorily.

“Superb new flavor for us”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014 via mobile

Had the shawarma chicken (perfectly seasoned) on salad and the onion dolmas (tart and bright). Our host, Achmed was very accomodating and gave us recommendations. Atmosphere is part of the experience - a tiny building with walls completely covers with Iraqi photos, jewelry and art. Tables are small, but also part of atmosphere. Prices are bargain by Portland standards. We'll worth our drive from the west side,

“Middle Eastern with an Iraqi flair”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

Very comfortable and inviting atmosphere. Large panel screen with slide show of various scenes; people, countryside, city views of Iraq with music quietly playing in the background. We had the Iraqi Lamb Shawarma and Falafel plate's, both are great and recommended ! Nice smokey paprika flavor to the Baba ghanoush. Good service and friendly people. Enjoyed Dar Salam very much and will go back for more.

“Enjoyable Basic Middle Eastern”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

The food here was basic and good. Overall not terribly exciting but worth a trip. As an added bonus, we paid less than $30 for our meal (two sides/salads, 1 entree, dessert and coffee). The offerings are standard Middle Eastern (tabouli, hummus, lamb, etc.) but the tabouli was simply outstanding (we will go back for this alone - it's that good!) and we also enjoyed the mango salad.

“Good, but not much more than that”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

This is a restaurant serving middle eastern / Iraqi / Lebanese food. Everything we had was tasty, but somehow mild and lacked some of the spices that you would expect ... Too much rice everywhere .lamb and chicken slightly dry.
The staff was friendly but seemed to lack experience. (They ended up bringing us someone else's credit card and receipt... )
