We had a delicious lunch at Hoda's Lebanese restaurant. The service was excellent. The humus, babagannouj, chicken kebobs, lamb sausage looking patties,cauliflower, fresh baked pita bread and the flafel were excellent. The only dish we did not think was that good was the Lebanese pizza (Lehm bi ajeen)....we thought it was tasteless and the crust was so so. The price... More

Hoda's Middle Eastern Cuisine had a hamburger for Hamburger week in Portland. The called it the Beirut Burger. I saw a photo of it and a description in Willamette Week. Where 35 places in Portland had their own special hamburgers during this week for $5. I have never been to Hoda's and thought this would be an excellent time to... More

Four of us on a weeknight came for dinner. I had a good martini. Sammy, our waiter, was wonderful, friendly, efficient, plus good looking. His family formerly worked at Nicholas. His parents opened Hoda in a nice area, a restaurant with plenty of window tables and a full bar. My husband had lamb shank, My friend and I each ordered... More

Yes! Three of us enjoyed our early midweek dinner. This is a small neighborhood establishment in a cozy Portland neighborhood. Eggplant was prepared nicely, lamb was good, kabob was delish. Lentil soup was so good we ordered some to take home after our meal!

My son and I each had one on the Mezza selections, he got the vegetarian and I got the meat. Everything was so good. Lovely dining areas (no TVs, which I loved). Great service. We'll be back!

Another dining month adventure. This time with friends. Their menu was one of the most extensive for selections. Two salads, tabouleh or romaine arugula feta. Both were fantastic. We also got humos with each salad. Oh yes, and the fresh bread piping hot! Yum. Next there were 4 choices--we did the meat grape leaves. Bite size & wonderful. Our 2nd... More

We went to this restaurant in memory of my father (it was his favorite) and were slightly disappointed. Everything was OK - but nothing exceptional. The pita bread was good (as we remembered), but the tabbouleh didn't have much (if any) bulgur at all. The humus was good. The falafel were small and thin, so almost all of it was... More

We went to Hoda's Middle Eastern Cuisine kind of on a whim over Christmas break. Wow!!! That was the best Middle Eastern food we've ever had! What a gem. We were greeted and seated right away by friendly staff. The room had a warm, traditional, colorful atmosphere with mood lighting keeping the glare at bay. Appetizers and drinks came quickly,...

Unfriendly host and undercooked chicken kabob wrapped in bacon (the special) made this a very disappointing experience. Will not go back.
