My favorite restaurant in Portland! They have amazing vegetarian dishes, try the dolmas. I also recommend the veggie mezza plate, it is great! They are never crowded and have a nice atmosphere.

This is some of the best middle eastern food in the Portland area. Sometimes the service is a little slow, but the food is always worth the wait. I have tried lots of things on their menu and there isn't anything I wouldn't recommend.

This awesome little restaurant has the most delicious Falafel sandwiches. They have lunch specials, and the place isn't usually that crowded. Service can be slow but he food is worth the wait.

We've been meaning to try this place every time we have gone by it. Well, we made a great choice! We typically go to Ya Halla, and the food is ok, the wait to get in is ridiculous!!! My Partner is vegetarian and really isn't all that

My family dined at this place last night. Food was great & price was quite reasonable although the portions were not huge (BUT IT WAS ENOUGH). Service could be a little better but friendly. By the way these guys were quick to feed us.
