We hit Darsalam before a show at the Alberta Rose Theater. It's right across the street. It's a warm comfortable atmosphere with great service. I highly recommend the chicken and rice. Appetizers were great too. Very reasonable prices.

This place was recommended by a friend and now I'm hooked! Start off with the stuffed onions. Then move on to the eggplant stew, all the while scooping fabulous hummus with fresh warm pita bread. If your mouth isn't watering yet it should be. I'm telling you people the baklava is the best I've ever had. We wanted to lick... More

We arrived in Portland hungry, ready for lunch and, after checking into our hotel, looked for nearby restaurants and found Dar Salam. Putting aside nagging memories of the petrified falafel and bland stews we'd had in our town's poor array of Middle Eastern restaurants, we took a leap of faith and went there. The space is made warm and pleasing... More

My wife and I went to DarSalam for their lunch buffet. Their were so many vegan options to choose from. After trying a little of each type it was hard deciding what to have for second trip up because everything tasted so good. I have been to many buffets that had vegan items but I never had as many as... More

The food was average. I really liked the ambiance. There was a lot of historical things in the restaurant. The service was average.

The restaurant is covered with pictures from Iraq, making it an immersive experience. They serve Iraqi food, which is very accessible to Americans. I loved the stuffed onions and the tzatsiki sauce.

The place was packed and we were lucky to get the last table for two before people had to wait.The decor is fascinating, very colorful, the walls are covered with photos and other objects. We ordered the Sheesh Kebab Rice plate and the Traditional Lamb Khema. They came with side dishes of eggplant, rice, salad or soup. All of the... More

Wow, I can't believe that this place wasn't packed with patrons. After returning from a great day on the Oregon coast after Memorial weekend we were famished. We got back to Portland rather late and this place was still open. On arrival we were immediately seated by our host, waiter, bartender and possibly cook (it seemed like he did it... More
