Incredibly friendly staff, incredibly delicious hummus, falafel and the absolute best stuffed grape leaves I've ever had. The building was beautiful and the service was 5 stars. An absolute do-not-miss if you enjoy middle eastern food and are in Portland.

From the moment we sat at our table we were welcomed. The food was fantastic. They serve you a family style meal that had something for everyone and we had lots of it. We were entertained by a belly dancer. Fun night!

Al Amir has been delivering for decades, and I was so happy to see that their star has not diminished over the years. I recently had a craving for my vegetarian favorites, ful mudammes and khudar, that just could not be filled anywhere else. My...More
