Yummy food. They have many gluten free and vegan options which are all marked in the regular menu. They bring out fresh flat bread and can make it gluten free. It was tasty and seemed fresh made. Since they serve the bread right away it would be good to let the hostess know when you are seated.
Very sloppy in the way they deal with food; e.g., bread carelessly placed in front of the person with celiac; greasy, nasty, messy floors, etc. I’ll not go there again. I can just imagine the flour flying through the air back in the kitchen. Not for me!
I didn’t feel safe in general by the way food was handled - cross-contamination was evident in the serving of dishes at the table when there were both GF and non-GF diners. I also was negatively impressed by the greasy floors, food all over the floor, and the dirty tables. I won’t go back.
Very good fine! Fast, friendly service! Food was delicious and the GF pita was an extra bonus. Family owned restaurant that makes customers feel at home. I ordered chicken kabob salad and hummus. It was excellent! You must try this place!
Amazing restaurant with friendly, helpful staff, small restaurant, warm atmosphere and the food is heaven. For a small charge get the gluten free bread, great for dipping. The olive oil spice mixture brought for dippng bread into is delicious. The stuffed grape leaves tasted fresh & were delicate but I used a fork when needed. The mango lasse was delightful w/little pieces of mango in it. **another reviewer suggested a dish that is not currently gluten free** All gluten free items are clearly marked on the menu. The also have gluten free pizza and I was told they use separate baking pans, utensils, etc. I will try the pizza next time. I have Celiac and didn't have a reaction.
By far the BEST Middle Eastern cuisine in Portland!! Get the Mezza plate and try a little of (almost) everything. The baba ghannouj is deliciously smoky and totally to die for, and everything is made from scratch. Don't miss this gem of a restaurant!
