This is one of the best places to get casual Lebanese food in Portland (and lots of people know it, so go early or plan to wait). The food is better than average, especially the za'atar served with pita, the hummus, and the tabbouleh (heavy on the parsley), and the portions are HUGE.Recommended for:

Nicholas is a popular Lebanese restaurant in Portland with several locations throughout the metro area. Their nan bread is huge and nearly takes up the entire table. I love their fragrant and buttery rice. Everything else that I've had on their menu has been great.Recommended for:

Always packed, so you should expect a wait, but as far as reasonably priced and delicious Middle Eastern food goes, this is a great place for a cheap date. Larger groups run into the problem of having space found for them, but I've found that parties of three or four don't have too much trouble getting in. The platters are the way to go whether it's Mezza or meat, it comes to a decent $13 to $14 cost for a filling meal. The food naturally accommodates all ranges from vegan to gluten-free to meat-eater, so you can offset those battles by choosing this spot before you all go boozing down the street. As most areas go, this is a central location to walk to entertainment (which is mainly bars) if you decide you want to park and take in the industrial side of Grand Avenue.Recommended for:
