the food was good and the service was very attentive and friendly. We went there with a friend of ours from NY and she enjoyed it as well.

I was pleased to have a most wonderful delicious meal, only to find out I was there on the last day in business! They were closing up shop to move to Florida or Arizona. I do hope that Abilene was kind to them and was good customers to an establishment that was giving them a taste to another part of... More

My wife and I ate there this evening based on the Trip Advisor reviews. Between 6:30 and 7:30 we were the only people there. The appetizer sampler 2 was just ok. Runny hummus and bagged salad with a few Mediterranean vegs on top. Rolled grape leaves looked machine-made. The mixed grill was nicely seasoned and the beef was very tender.... More

Went for lunch. Food was great. Service was slow, but we weren't in a hurry anyway. Service reminded me of travels to Europe and Africa. Docked one bubble (star) because the building is in need of significant maintenance and better restroom facilities. Overall, was very pleased and would return again.

We enjoy special occasions at the Middle East Restaurant to experience the authentic flavors of the Middle East, cooked by our Middle-Eastern friends. It is a great cultural experience! Main menu items are not cheap, but the qualify is good.

No, you do not have to leave town to get great Middle Eastern food. My husband and I have had nearly everything on the menu. This past weekend we got two of the sets of appetizers. Which included Dolmas, Baba Ganoush, hummus, Tzatziki, Fatoush ( that was so fresh this was no out of a package salad) and wonderful warm... More

This is an excellent restaurant. Small, but very nice. The food is quite good, and the owners are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Especially for someone who is not sure about this type of food, Middle East Restaurant would be the best place to try it for the first time.

GO HERE!! We're new to Abilene and it is great to see how many good restaurants there are. This is no exception. Get the Meat Platter. The beef is incredible, and the lamb and chicken are great too. Great price for a hearty lunch. I would highly recommend this to folks and will be back again.
