“Secret Lebanese & Greek restaurant”
Review of Al Wadi Cafe

Al Wadi Cafe
Ranked #12 of 129 Restaurants in Bedford
Restaurant details
Reviewed 16 July 2015

OK, it is not really a secret restaurant, but it is not very well known that there is a great little Lebanese-Greek place to eat in the Dallas-Fort Worth mid cities area. The Al Wadi Cafe is at 2721 Brown Trail, Bedford, TX - about 1 mile north of the N. Tarrant Express Highway (121/183) on Brown Trail just a bit south of Harwood. It is next to the Giza Specialty Foods market and is run by the owners of that Giza market. Except for Monday, the restaurant opens at 11 AM daily. In addition to an extensive menu, they have a great all-you-can-eat buffet from 11 AM to 2 PM on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday, and on Sunday from 11 AM to 4 PM. The buffet is a real bargain at the current price of $9.99, Check them out at alwadicafe.com and give them a try, you will not be disappointed!

My sister and I have been on a quest to find yummy local restaurants. Al Wadi definitely makes the cut. I'm stuffed on hummus and kefta, and will surely be back. FYI? It's BYOB.

Fresh made Mediterranean food. Not crowded like Cafe Medi . Great variety for a small place . Family owned with owners on premises . Also you can pick up next door at the little store ingredients to make your own at home.

Heard about the lunch buffet a few times I've been in the area for business so I thought I'd try it out.

I liked the look and feel - especially the outdoor seating under the grape vines.

The food was good. Gyro had the right flavor and temp so it was my favorite choice of the buffet with the warm thin pita pieces.

However: (1) the tzatziki sauce tasted like plain Greek yogurt with NO other flavors, (2) you could tell the falafel was frozen just from the shape - I.e. it came from an extruded process, and (3) the chicken was dry.

It may have been an off day and I'll definitely give it 2 more tries. Until then, just good/OK.
I can take or leave it.

I love the presentation of vibrant grape vines, lush and in season abounding with grapes encasing their front seating patio. White tablecoths for all meals, varied and nutritious, delicious menu, and super informed and professional waiters. Food was tasty and luscious.
