Many years ago when Al Habashi opened, my dad & I used to go there & had many great experiences. We loved Mr. Tawfiq the owner. In the years, they expanded & opened a cafe. The food is excellent, as well as the service. Prices are great. (I don't care for disposable plates, etc., but that's the rebel side of me.) I bought a beautiful scarf that I now where everywhere to show my support for the Palestinian people being subjected to genocide and everything - food, utensils, condiments, one and all have been high quality. I've been going there since they opened, have never witnessed anything but quality, kindness & respect. Salaam. Peace. One Love.

We have lived all over the country and always look for great middle-eastern foods. Habashi House is probably the best we have had. I am vegetarian and love their combo platter.
My husband and I stop their regularly for lunch. The price, flavor and friendliness is unbeatable.

I have discovered this place recently. I go there with my husband and we have a great experience every time. The owner is very friendly and believe it or not, when I ask about all the different varieties and flavors, he tells me to try thing out! They have always been very polite and respectful to both my husband and I. Their product is excellent as well. Variety of dried fruit, nuts, etc make for a great tea party. We visit this store at least twice a month and I never witness them being rude or disrespectful with their customers.

I have read the reviews written here and I find a little bit of truth in both the good and bad. I too, once tried a sample of a nut I thought I might buy. The salesperson ( this was an ouside display) yelled at me loudly not to try with my hands. It did make me angry, but when I thought about it, I realized that it must be for health reasons and got over both my anger quickly. I do think that it would be helpful to have samples in small plastic containers with little plastic spoons so those who wish to sample before they buy could do so. I am originally from New York where there are many groceries that focus on ethnic food and such a sampling only serves to increase business. All other times I have shopped at this market, the people have been gracious and everything I have bought is delicious. So, to all who go there, don't sample with your fingers ( it does pose a health threat) and go shopping. You won't be disappointed.

I have read the comments wrote by the unknown person who stated negative remarks such as Nazis about the people of the store.

All I can say is that those comments are totally untrue.

The Store owner has every right to protect the safety of other customers .

Please, be kind to others and remember that what goes around comes around.

This place has been in business for over two decades and people keep coming back for their good service and merchandise.

Hello All,

I travel to Kansas City from northern Wisconsin a number of times a year. I first came to visit the habashi House for lunch a few years ago. After lunch I always go into the store to buy a few things. No, whenever business takes me to KC, which is once every 3 months or so, I am sure to visit this business because of the great food, friendly service and unique products from the store.

The reason I keep coming back is because I am from a small northern town with small hometown family run business. When I come to the City Market in Kansas City, I don't feel like I am in a big city and just another face in the crowd; instead, the Habashi family and all the other small business' in this market do a great job all around with fantastic service and wonderful hospitality.

I come alone, so I am able to watch and pay attention to the interaction of people in the market place. People watching is a facinating thing to do...you can learn so much. This I know, in all the years of visiting the Habashi business', I have never once seen any negative treatment of customers as a couple of these reviewers claim. In fact, I have personally felt very kindly treated and I have only observed the most excellant and friendly service from the people who served me lunch and the men in the grocery store. These are great people, believe me.

I wonder why these couple who complain hide their identity. I myself would be happy to share my feelings and experiences with anyone interested to know the honest thoughts of a regular visitor from the north county; one who has greatly enjoyed the super hospitality of the habashi family. I welcome anyone to give me a call at ( 715) 277-4474.

God's Peace to all, and remember, "A kind answer turns away anger"

Unbelievable! I was there in their store few weeks back and a man had paid for his nuts already eating out of a bag!!! The man working shouted hey hey this is not your home you can??t eat?. Or something to that effect. It was unbelievable. The man was embarrassed and went red. Then when he stated that, he has already paid for it. They just laughed it off!!!! Looks like these idiots do it on a daily basis. My husband stated that we should call the River market authorities on them. Now I may actually do that. Unbelievable these people seem to be doing it to everyone!!!

I mentioned this to friend of mine couple of weeks back and he stated that these folks have scolded another family he knew. The same friend had noticed this post and called me and said guess what these folks do it to everyone I am asking everyone who had gone through similar experience at this store to call authorities.

I have read this morning these words of some one writing about Al Habashi Mart.
First, I can tell what mentality this person has before even thinking of doubting this nice small grocery store in Kansas City, This person is using the words such as:
((If anyone has seen the ??soup, nazi? in Seinfeld show it is a
reality with this people!))
does that tell you anything !! it does tell me.

I believe that this person who wrote these words has her own reasons to write such mean untrue words about this small kind store that does a great job and serves customers in a very kind and sincere manner all thru the years it had been in the City Market.
Take my word, and i hope people really use their mind before reading anyone's words that so truely could be only lies for a purpose they have.

we have people from all over the states including, DC , OK and Chicago, wishing that they have such a store in their home town, we have never had any complaints since we have started this Business.

On the contrary, most of our customers are very satisfied with the unique type of buisness that we provide to this comunity anywhere in this region and we are very proud of it.

This person used the nuts show table as a breakfast Buffett , was told to sample the nuts not with her hands because of health reason and the protection of our customers health,which she refused to do .

We believe this person is reacting by trying to make us look bad for whatever reason.
We believe we should be the one contacting an authority because of her
action and remarks in the store .
We have witnesses that saw her eating of many baskets without asking.

and we would greatly appreciate it if you do not take these lies that some one writes without at least making sure that their stories are not fabricated.

Again, I think every one who visits that store could feel how false the words of that review were.
I wish a happy day to every one who read my review.

Peace.

Do not step into this shop! That is my ardent advice to any one who visits the city market, Kansas City. The rudest customer service ever. If anyone has seen the ??soup, nazi? in Seinfeld show it is a reality with these people!

A few months back I was in Al Habashi grocers where they have variety of nuts and spiced up pistachio varieties. A person was eating off of a bag of nuts that he had already paid for and the owners shouted at him and embarrassed him. I told my wife that if these people had done that to me I would have been upset. Believe me they do this so everyone could here.

Like an idiot, I went there again and he did the same thing this time to me!!! I sampled by trying out one pistachio (that is the only way to find out the taste) the two owners just yelled at me. I could not believe it. I tried to reason out to no veil. I thought they were very threatening. I will file an official complaint against the BBB and take all relevant steps to report the abuse. The guy next to me was very upset too. He mentioned that he had never seen shop owners this rude! What these owners put people through is absolutely amazing. If no sampling is allowed the best thing to do is to put up a board or something rather than yelling at people.

I did nothing wrong. When there 20 varieties of stuff how do you find out what something tastes like? There is just no way. These people are just ignorant people who think they can do anything with consumers and customers.
