We loved the simple decor. It was a little confusing as you seat yourself then they bring you menus and take your orders, but you pay up front. The food was amazing and quite filling. We also felt it was a good value.

We go to Habibi a few times a year. Their food is very good. Flavors that you won't find elsewhere in the area and prepared very well. Prices are reasonable for what you get. Highly recommend.

If you're looking for authentic, high-quality Middle Eastern food, this is among the best in the New England area. Generous, homemade portions that consistently are delicious food. The unassuming building belies the great food you can get from the humble owners.
