The food is good, and one can make a decent meal from the happy hour menu, although it's more a small plate than a happy hour menu. It comes pretty quickly, too. But there's nothing to distinguish it from the food at another decent Middle Eastern restaurant. The cocktail they call "the Mistress" is not bad either, worth a try... More

Every single time we eat here, we have a fantastic experience. The owners are really nice, the staff is friendly. Service may be a little slow, but we're OK with that, it gives us time to talk and enjoy our evening, not being rushed out of the place. We love the place so much that we had Habibi make all...

This casual place has great food. The atmosphere is laid back with a friendly staff. We found enough appealing dishes on their menu to come back twice during our week long stay in Portland. In a town with so many restaurants, this pretty much says it all about how much we enjoyed it.

The food was very good. We ordered shawarma with rice and falafel, and a kebab. The food was fresh and the rates are reasonable. The owner is very amicable. We had a good time. The ambiance is very casual and cafe like. We sat and chatted for a while, there was no rush to eat, especially as it was a... More

We visited this place because it looked inviting and was near our hotel. They appeared to have only one server for the entire restaurant but he did not appear to be at all concerned about good service. It took forever for him to come take our order. The bartender noticed we were waiting without drinks and came over to take... More

My wife and I were in the area and stopped in for some dinner. She was craving falafel and that dictated the choice of dining. We started with tzatziki appetizer with bread. The bread was fresh and tasted wonderful and the sauce was good as well. She ordered the falafel sandwich and was blown away by the quality of the... More

We got this place just casually and the experience was great. We didn't think that this type of kitchen was so rich and interesting. Our daughter with a gluten free diet enjoyed very much the Veggie Eggplant Casserole, the other the meatball calzone, mom the thyme pizza and I the gluten free Mezza. It was a pleasure to have this... More

The food was incredible at this place! Falafel, tabouli, Majadras, all excellent! Ended up going to this place a few times on my trip to Portland. The service is hit or miss so I can see how other people had issues with that. Our first trip was amazing service, second pretty good, and third was sufficient but not great. The... More

We stopped by for dinner while walking in the area. The prices are a bit high for the portions, especially compared to other places that serve this type of food. The waitress didn't come back to check on us and we saw her leave out the front door with her purse apparently going home for the evening. We sat there... More

Love to eat at this restaurant every time I stop in Portland. The service is great, staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is delicious and they give you large portions! Great for vegetarians, as they have many options. I enjoy sitting outside on the sidewalk, taking in the views and atmosphere of down town.
