Buyer beware of what you're being charged for. My husband and I bought one coffee and one alcoholic beverage and the bill was $72. For sure an error we said to the waitress and she of cource agreed. Back in a few she announced, when she

I think the family recipes are really good but the food ingredients are of cheap quality and sometimes taste old. I have become sick from the food twice now, maybe because the ingredients were not fresh? Maybe the kitchen is not clean?

The layout here is like a high school cafeteria. Bright lights, squared up tables and rows. The only thing missing are the students.

Lots of potential, but management needs to make the place more mellow and relaxing. Can't really put it into words.

While Pasha had, and Al Amir has, the right atmosphere this place does not. If you don't care, and are going just for the food and not the ambience, then maybe it will be satisfactory for you. If I wanted that, I'd just get take out and go home.

What a disappointment! The service was absolutely terrible! Our waitress (Amanda) was surly. She never smiled, never said thank you, and didn't even acknowledge when we thanked her for bringing our food 45 minutes after we ordered it! Amanda had no sense of urgency, even though the place was packed (standing room). She ambled through the restraunt as if she were waiting on only two tables. She never cleared our table either. We sat there all night long with dirty dishes on the table. The food was tasty, but way over priced. I got about a dollar's worth of rice with my meat; which was a tad oily. I had to ask for bread and she never refilled our water. Also, she took our credit cards right away and then kept them all night long!! The best part of this restaurant was the belly dancing! WOW! They were some of the best dancers in all of PDX, I'm told and I believe it. Now THAT'S entertainment!

We picked this restaurant to get together with several friends. We used to go there long ago and had good memories. I don't know what happened. Has the ownership changed?? Thought the food would be interesting.. NOT!! Some of the food was mixed so much that it was unidentifiable and I typically love the mediterranean food. Worse than the food was the lack of cleanliness. Buffet area was not kept up. I had to go through several plates to find one without a dried up gross food on it!! We had to ask the waitress to clean our table and bring new utensils. Ours was a reservation so they should have prepared the tables for us. They barely came and picked up the used up dishes on the table. I really think health department should inspect this restaurant. If the dining area had all these cleanliness problems, I hate to think what was it like back in the kitchen. STAY AWAY FROM THIS RESTAURANT until they fix their problems

Kolbeh is my favorite restaurant. It's changed names a few times lately, but the quality of the food has remained the same. This is a pretty unassuming restaurant. It's not overly fancy or stuffy, and actually on weeknights is almost empty, but the weekends are hopping. With live music and belly dancing on Friday's and Saturday nights, as well as a hookah bar, this place fills to capacity. I prefer the quiet weeknights, but regardless of your preferences, the food is really the star of the show. The meat dishes, are always amazinly tender and spiced to perfection. My favorite dish, Showarama Chicken, has the most perfect saffron rice with orange pieces, topped with the most succulent chicken you have ever tasted. If you like mediterranean food, please try Kolbeh, you won't be disappointed.
