They offer a great selection of vegan and vegetarian items despite not being a vegan/vegetarian establishment. Not only do they have an excellent menu, but their food is well-priced, the place is cozy and the staff is friendly. If you're looking for Middle Eastern fare, I would highly recommend Habibi.
I like this place, and it is convenient enough when I have lunch with this friend of mine. The Shawrma is just fine. I have two pet peeves. When I order the Turkish coffee for one it is $2.50, and I get a little pot of coffee. When I order it for two they charge me TWICE AS MUCH, but do not give us any more coffee. It is better to order two singles. They really need to figure this out. The owner is an OK guy. To put it bluntly, the help stinks. I always tip well anyway, cuz they are so out of it I am sure they are uneducatable in terms of teaching them how to be good servers. I am under the impression that the wait staff could not care less, and is really, genuinely clueless. My friend onkly gets a 45-50 minute lunch. I can spend all day there. Also, the tables are small.
My boyfriend and I LOVE this place. It's the first Lebanese food I have ever had & it's now my all-time favourite restaurant. My boyfriend has been a long time lover of Lebanese food & this is his favourite restaurant in Portland. We're both vegan & they offer such an extensive selection. When we told the owner how happy we were with our meals, he gave us free (vegan) baklava! I love the zatar pizza!
What a nice surprise! My husband and I loved this place. We ordered hummus with pita, veggie kabob, beef kofta, lemonade, turkish coffee and baklava and it was all delicious, especially the veggie kabob. Have tried the veggie kabob at lots of other lebanese restaurants in town including Nicholas and was disappointed with all of them. Only Habibi surpasses our very high standards. The service was great and the owner is very friendly. The restaurant is clean and the ambience was very nice (we sat upstairs--a little noisy, but nothing compared to most restaurants today). Excellent and highly recommended!!
I had a Lamb Schwarma and a Babaganoush both as take out. The service was quick, and the food was really hot and good. Total 14 Bucks. The bread they gave me was AWESOME. The schwarma was a little dry and needed a bit more sauce. On the whole a pretty good place to grab take out for my SW neighbors.
I love this place. The owner is the sweetest man who takes care of his customers like they were his friends coming in. The food is magnificent, (suggestion: Lamb Shwarma plate with Basmati Rice is a steal). There is an extensive vegetarian/vegan menu as well. As a restaurant industry vetran, I love to be pampered. I always am at Habibi.
