Dar Essalam is a hidden gem in Wilsonville. It may be off the beaten path but it is well worth the effort to find it. The food is fantastic and the service is every bit as good. The menu is not as limited as it appears since you can do

The dinner menu is actually not that extensive, but what they serve is pretty tasty.
Their entrees were priced at $20 or above. They advertise it as 4-course menu... but I felt the quantity of the hummus(+peta) and salad platter they served for us (3 folks) was quite less. But the main entree portions are quite sumptuous. We tasted all kabobs: I loved the shrimp kabob (though only 2 pieces on a skewer) - it was tasty and succulent. The chicken was good (after adding a hint of salt by me). The lamb wasn't great.
They served us some chutney along with the salad platter, which was nicely spicy and we had a lot of it with rice.
They did not charge us anything extra for the 2 extra rices (obviously, we liked it) that we asked.
The chef was really friendly and was often visiting the customers and explaining the dishes or checking how everything was. The waiter was also very patient everything to us.
Overall, a nice pleasant experience.
Will definitely dine at this place if I am around this area.

Pros: Different food choices and Amazing service

Cons: Small place (about 40+ seating) hence wait times

My husband and I first tried this place after driving by the restaurant and just smelling the food.
This is by far my most favorite place to eat. The food is fabulous, the atmosphere is warm and friendly. It's family owned and run by a wonderful couple. The chef comes out to the dining area and chats and talks about the food and answers any questions you might have. Our meal was 4 courses starting with flat bread and hummus, then 4 salads. The sizes seemed small at first but considering how much food comes to the table, we realized quickly that is was more than enough. Next was a delicious soup followed by our entree. wonderful wonderful wonderful! If you go you must try the pomegranate lemonade and for desert baklava. I think the cost is more than reasonable with the wonderful food and service that you get every time.
