We went to this restaurant to eat kibe but there was no "raw kibe". We then tried the deluxe banquet for 4 - what a good surprise. Good food and good portions.

Restaurant has very good reputation for Lebanese food. They know how to make Hummus and Tehina. No Question. But when the waiter is dismissive, curt, and looks/acts impatient and indifferent when asked questions about the menu, it just makes it not fun, not enjoyable, and...More

Not overly decorated but who cares when the food is so good! We had Lamb shank and game hen, hummus and some of the grill bread, dessert of rice pudding and baklava. Everything was prepared well and so very tasty! Waitstaff was patient and attentive.

I think this place is great....some of the best Middle Eastern food I've had. I love their Signature Mezza, and try and eat here whenever I'm in Portland.

Fatoush salad good. Vegie dolmades wete gummy. Chicken kabobs did not seem to be marinated at all - would not recommend. Nice setting and staff but all and all, mediocre experience in Portland.
