Recently we had a dinner here that was really nice. Excellent customer service provided by the staff. Cost is reasonable here.

First of all I would like to preface this review by saying I have been to almost every Arabian restaurant in chicago and surrounding suburbs. The service was great at ATHAR. unlike every other Arabian restaurant around, I did not need to hunt my waitrer down. My water was always filled and my waiter came back to ask if i needed anything multiple times. The food was phenominal from the dolmah to the kibbeh. There are so many choices of Arabian food to eat. My maqlooba was impecable with boneless chicken breast and boneless meat and the knaffah and baklava is made right there and is great!
I am definatly going back over and over again. They also have a lunch buffet everyday for get this ONLY 9.99

We walked in this place and felt like we were in another world. I was sure that the food was going to be so-so but I was wrong! It was so good, everything that our group had was just perfection! We will be back a lot!

We love it! My wife and I are regulars and highly recommend it. The food is always fresh and the environment is friendly as well as unique. The owners take pride in making your visit enjoyable. Go on Friday nights to see bellydancing, it's really fun!

I must admit that I have never written a review before. However, the best kept secret for great food is in Elmhurst. Athar has great food and the price are reasonable for what you get. They have best rice I have ever had and the deserts are to die for. My husband always has their steak which is as good if not better than any major chop house in the Chicagoland area. When friends come to visit from out of town, I don't take them Downtown (Chicago), I always take them to Athar. I would eat their every week if I could. I feel like I shouldn't say how good they are, otherwise they may get to the point where weeks in advance reservations would become the norm. The secret is now out.

I honestly have been to many arabic food places in chicago and athar tops them all.although there is some places from the burbs to chicago and the north side i thought athar is the best in food and decor.The menu is the usual in all arabic places such as humus and kabobs but better quality. prices are reasonable and the place is small and cozy. the service is good but don't compare it to cite or gibsons,overall i really recommend this place and i have yet to see a real traditional arabic food restaurant that is top notch.

The dining at A'thars is very enjoyable. Everything from the food to the Belly Dancing was great! The service was fast and friendly to say the most. The staff is very attentive from the time you are seated to the thanks they give you as you leave. I have told friends about A'thar's so they can experience it.

Athar is one of the best establishments in the western suburbs! The owners take a personal interest in everyones needs and this gives a very friendly and warm atmosphere. I have been there several times and continue to go back time and time again. The bar is always well stocked, the service is very good and even when it's busy. The owners help out all the time. The free warm pita and humus is always a delightful treat and the food is served with great presentation. The live entertainment (belly dancers) gives the place a great ambiance and the prices are very reasonable. The place has become better than ever because the owners care so much about their customers and make changes to better suit their growing customer base! Eat at Athar's see it for yourself, you will walk away with an enjoyable experience!
