I enjoy middle eastern food, and this is my place of choice for event special food. By that I mean, when I need food for a picnic or a social function, this is my location of choice. The restaurant is nothing to brag about facility wise, but the food is definitely worth bragging about.

This is a touch of Lebanon in Norfolk. They have something for everyone including vegetarians.The little grocery area is wonderful for getting the ingredients to make balclava and other Greek/Middle Eastern dishes.

Lunch time, counter service; dinner, table service. A good selection of mid-eastern delicacies from soup and sandwich plates to lamb dishes . A favorite is a combo plate of a choice of soups (the summer cucumber-yogurt soup is a winner!) and or one-half a chicken taweek sandwich or a fresh salad. (I think that was $9.95) Also a good choice... More

After a long absence from Norfolk, we stepped into Azar's to get a snack & to cool off. We spent longer than we intended as we sampled humus, grape leaves and baba ghanoush. Food was fresh and deliciously seasoned. The price was right. The atmosphere, at happy hour time, was unhurried & relaxing.

I literally asked for something that was already prepared and could have been handed to me at this self-serve restaurant, but was told "the cook said he was too busy"-it will take 25 minutes to hand it to you. The manager was also too busy to take my complaint. I guess they need fewer customers so they can be less... More

This restaurant delivers cleanliness, the freshest of food and excellent service. We were especially hungry tonight and started with tabbouleh salad with pita bread ($7.99). Huge double scoops of salad arrived promptly and proved most satisfying - we had to ask for more warm pita bread to scoop up every drop. This is the Lebanese version, with more parsley than... More

We were a bit nervous walking in because of how empty it was. Large menu... lots to choose from including specials. Good place for sharing dishes. I thought the prices were higher than the price listed on Trip Advisor. It was good, but we spent far less at other local restaurants and felt like we got as much or more... More

Being on vacation in Norfolk, I was looking for a place to bring my wife and my 3 year old daugther. I had heard of Azar's during our stay and decided to give it a try. Man, this place was great! No wonder it was highly rated on trip advisor! First off, we were greeted warmly and directed to our... More

Went Saturday eveing after an event at the Opera House. Greeted very warmly by the hostess, who also happened to be our waitress. After taking our order she gave us a few minutes to decide - which is very difficult because everything sounds wonderful. We both ordered the creamy tomato basil soup - absolutely heavenly (wish I had gotten a... More
