It was a family dinner with 10-12 people and all of us enjoyed an amazing meal. We decided to dine family style and boy did we eat like kings! All of the food was fresh and mouth watering. We were waited on by the owner and his wife who were more than accommodating to gluten and grain allergies.

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!

We visited Al-Amir with friends, who suggested that we allow our server, who happened to be a co-owner, to bring us, at her discretion, a series of dishes, which included a salad, appetizers (including hummus, falafel, stuffed grape leaves [meat and vegetarian]), two main courses and a plate of roasted vegetables. It was as if we enjoyed every item on... More

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 only regret was not having enough room to order another dish also. All around, a... More

My mom and I went to Al Amir before going to the Keller Auditorium. We had the appetizer plate and grilled shrimp. They have the most pleasant staff, who are very courteous and attentive. The food was so delicious! They have THE best Hummus and Baba Ganooj (sp?). I found out they sell their own brand at Whole Foods too!... More

My relatives recently had a group of 15 at this restaurant and from the minute we walked in we were well taken care of.

From the hummus, baba ganoush, flafel, tabouli starters,... More

My family came here on a recommendation and absolutely loved it! The potions are huge and the food was spectacular. The owner is such a nice lady and she has owned the restaurant for 28 years! On the weekends they have belly dancers as well. If you are in the area it's definitely worth it!

Where to start? Friendly from the get go. A Saturday night without a reservation in this wonderful place. Staff who know exactly how to treat customers. Great Lebanese wine and plenty well cooked and presented Lebanese food at great price. All topped off with belly dancing. Well done Al-Amir. Well done Portland.

Thank Alan S
