This place is one of Toledos best kept secrets. Every meal is good and the service is fast and friendly. When we go during the week, the place is usually half empty. Nice, calm, relaxing and the food is great.

Chicken Shwarma was best I've ever had. Stuffed grape leaves were excellent. Don't understand why so few customers were there. Food, service and atmosphere were excellent. Décor was dated, but clean as a whistle. Handicap accessible. Bargain prices on all meals on menu. This restaurant is an antique cut diamond of five carats in it's Monroe Street setting. I'm having... More

This restaurant was suggested by a friend and I'm glad we listened. I've read reviews about the old decor and small crowds and I had my doubts. I actually loved the decor and thought it was very clean. It's a large place to my surprise. The food was excellent!!! I ordered three appetizers - fatoush, sauteed mushrooms w/onions and green...

We had appetizers and left as soon as possible. The food was mediocre but the service and atmosphere was horrible.

We have been coming here for 17 years! Love the food! Hidden gem! Try the Chicken Shwarma, Hummus, or Fatoosh! The décor is a little old, but not horrible. Ever time we go, there is no wait! Nice on a weekend, when all other restaurants are busy!

This was my first visit to Barada's, but it will not be my last. When searching for a different restaurant to try, I looked to tripadvisor and stumbled across this gem. I visited for lunch. The inside of the building is obviously dated, but that was of no concern. The menu offered numerous appetizers - most in the $4-$5.00 range.... More

If you like middle eastern food then try Barada's. There Fatoosh and Humus is to die for! Shwarma is out of this world and chicken tips is the best I've ever eaten Never a wait for this place-but the food is top notch.

I have lived most of my life in this area and when I eat out I want fresh high quality food. As native of this area - I had become programed to visit the 2 most well known Middle Eastern restaurants in Toledo. The problem is - I rarely go to those places because long waits, reservations needed, and pretty... More

Whenever we are in the Toledo area, this restaurant is one of our favorites! The fatoosh is amazing with the feta and the picnic chicken with garlic sauce is to die for! The restaurant is some of the best Middle Eastern we've found in the States. My husband was in the Middle East for a year on business and couldn't... More
