Excellent kabobs and Middle Eastern pastries! Their chicken kabob is one of the best kabobs that I have ever tasted. They have different kinds of kabobs as well as other tasty Middle Eastern vegetarian dishes. Also, their baklava is delicious. People buy them by trays. Highly recommended.

I have been going to Wahib's since it was a small diner 2 blocks west, about 29 years. The food has always been the same. EXCELLENT !!! Very clean, well prepared, and well worth the value.
The baked chicken is sooo good, you can even eat the bones. The hummus is second to none.
You are better off ordering a meal from the menu than the buffet, because you are served so much food and the bill will be cheaper.

I went there on a sunday and my mom went for the buffet and i went for the shawrma plate. she paid 17.49 and I paid 14 something. We both agreed that for the quaity of the food we were both expecting soemthing more. The leg of lamb was the only thing worthwhile in the buffet. It was meaty enough. But my shawrma plate was overpriced. Not taste and it was chewey. the waiters were not very courteous, no one asked us what kind of drink we wanted. they just poured out the water and walked away. we were left to our own devices. Not even a welcome to wahib's when we came in. Just the "how many"? in your party. I can think of a better place to go which is Haider Baba opposite pasadena city college. You get what you pay for there and the seating is much better.
Would not recommend and would not go there again.
PS. I am of a middle eastern background and my mom cooks better at home. What a waste.

I was excited to try Wahib's because it's so rare to find a non-Asian, non-chain restaurant in Alhambra. Unfortunately, the food did not live up to my expectations. I had the chicken and lula kebobs and both did not have much flavor. The rice was interesting with bits of ground beef and pine nuts. But, it also was bland. Even the hummus was bland.

In terms of service, I thought it was pleasant and quick. The decor is fine. I did enjoy the high ceilings.

I would recommend Carousel in Glendale or Aristos in Torrance instead for good middle eastern food.

I'm a fan of good Middle Eastern food, and in the San Gabriel Valley it can be pretty hard to find anything authentic, let alone tasty. I drove by this place many times, but finally decided to try it. Compared to most fancy Middle Eastern restaurants around LA, Wahib is pretty worn and run down, but it has the atmosphere of a mom&pop restaurant. While they use the moniker of "Middle Eastern", the menu also states that they are the best "Lebanese Food," just an FYI.

I went twice before writing this review: The Shredded Lamb (w/ rice) was so-so. The Lamb Kebab plate fared better, but was overcooked (well-done, burnt). However, the saving grace would be its GREAT value: They give away Hummus (fresh) for FREE(!), and it's really tasty. There's enough for 2-3 people easily, and the bread they give with it is freshly heated. In addition for Lunch (not sure about Dinner), they offer a choice of their fresh Lentil Soup (really flavorful, healthy) or a Salad.

Prices ranged from ~$7 - 10 for Lunch and considering what they give you, it's a great bargain! It's nowhere near the best Middle Eastern food, but it's a good value if you're craving some and you're in the SG Valley.

We just came back from this restaurant and we love it! We used to drive far all the way to Glendale to eat at Carousel and now this will be our permanent place for Middle Eastern food. The hummus is delicious and the best part about it is that it's free! Great food fresh and authentic, great service, and great atmosphere! We can't wait to go back and try every dish.

This place is the best. Their falafel are the best!!! Their plates are extremely generous (whenever we go, we just order one for the both of us) Best deal ever!! All the pita bread and Hummus you could eat, the meal comes with a soup or salad. And of course i always get the fresh baked baklava to top everything off for just 99 cents!

My family goes here about twice a month, and every time we do we say "Why don't we come more often?"

Every dish we (or friends we bring with us) has ever ordered has been incredibly yummy. I recommend trying their lamb dishes because their lamb is not greasy, rather moist and flavorful.

Do not leave without a piece of baklava and Arabic coffee -- even though you will be stuffed to the gills, it is worth it.

This is one of my favorite Middle Eastern restaurants in Los Angeles. The hummus and pita they serve as an appetizer is some of the best I've had. Their chicken plates are their specialty. Their salads are also very good for those vegetarians our there. Their the prices are very resonable.

The food is actual Lebanese food not Jordanian, not Palestinian, not Israeli. I think a ton of restaurants in So. Cal claim to be real middle eastern food but do not taste no where near the real stuff. Especially the hommos! That is the best way to test a restaurant. Wahib's is very authentic with a twist on some things. The bakery is great and the meat pies rock. I like it because I am Lebanese and get the real stuff when I go eat there. I hate getting disappointed and it happens a ton at many restaurants.

Wahib's is a great place for Lebanese food. They have a few specials to choose from on the menu and those are affordable since they give you a big serving of it. I always end up going home with a lot of left overs. The atmosphere is quiet and let's you immerse yourself in a conversation with people you go with rather than having to hear the banter of other tables nearby. I really like the hummus and pita bread here as well as the lamb dishes.

Every time I travel to Los Angeles, I go to many places, but Wahib's is always a MUST visit. They have some of the best Middle Eastern cuisine, period. The portions are huge and the warm pita and humous and olives that start every meal get you started off right. Always great daily specials and the sandwiches are awesome. The fattoush salad is a favorite.

Warm and inviting and good food, what's not to like? Oh, and the prices are very reasonable too!

Damn, but I'm hungry just thinking about it and am 3000 miles away.....

I enjoy going to Wahib's a couple of times a month... food is delicious, service is outstanding and the live entertainment is fun fun fun... If you want to enjoy a middle eastern evening and atmosphere, Wahib's is the place. - HB

This place has been in business for a long, long time! Thanks to the usual faithful and loyal patrons. The food is mostly Lebanese style, authentic and is pretty good compared to Carousel's in Glendale. Open lates!

If you are looking for an Arabic restaurant that isn't in the Typical Sence, then come to this restaurant which is located near Downtown Alhambra. The food & service plus the envoirment of this place actually goes Middle Eastern looks. Whabbi, the owner of the place, also does catering to a large clientele. They really do the very best in Middle Eastern cuisines, and no waiting nor worrying about it being coward. Take a try, you'll enjoy it.
