Had to come to this spot as I'm home visiting and have a Manooche. It was delicious! Plus Chirine is doing an amazing job with the restaurant. Highly recommend it to anyone looking to try some delicious Lebanese food!

If it wasn't for trip advisor I would've never found this place. It's tucked into a little corner in the strip mall in fairview. I love chicken shawarma a so I had to try it here.

Issa's is always delicous, and a great place to pick up a snack. It can take some time for food to be ready, but they accept phone orders.

Looks can be deceiving. Hidden in the corner of a non-descript strip-mall, plastic cutlery, paper plates, pop in a help-yourself-fridge, gingham tables & walls, this place is nothing to write home about. Except the food. Just go for the Lebanese food. PS. Don't take your date unless she wants authentic Lebanese food.

Fairview is blessed with excellent family run restaurants that take you all over the world. Issa's Saj definitely fits the bill. Excellent food in a very welcoming atmosphere.

Issa's Saj House Lebanese Restaurant exceeded my expectations! The service was quick, the food was excellent, and it was delicious. The hummus was creamy, the tabouli was tangy and all the dishes complemented each other to create a very satisfying lunch combo. The portions were also generous and the cost was reasonable for the fresh ingredients used. They close at... More
