We enjoyed sitting on the patio at mid-day on a beautiful Sunday, and we enjoyed our food - once we got it. My kibbe pita was good, and my wife's gyro salad was quite good. Both had good portions of fresh-made meat - which is not always what you get at a Lebanese restaurant. Our server was pleasant and tried... More

We were first excited about dining Mediterranean, but when we walked in our eyes started burning from all of the hookah smoke. The menu looked great, but the smoky atmosphere was not for us. We left right away.

My wife and I have eaten here several times and we have never been let down. The prices are moderate and the food very good. Located in a small park in the university section of town, the setting is peaceful. In Tucson, finding a quiet, tree-shaded location is a wonderful break. Instead of the usual, burger joints typically found around... More

The atmosphere and service were great. The place feels like a home and the server that helped us was super nice and patient. We saw some people enjoying lunch while smoking hookah and they seemed really happy. We ordered the appetizer hummus for the table, and I got a arabic shawarma. Even though I loved the place, I must admit... More

This food is beyond belief. The hummus is like silk and has a fabulous flavor. I had the shish kabob lamb. It was cleverly served on skewers hanging over a plate of saffron rice (which was to die for) and hummus. I was enchanted by the kindness and attention of the hostess who I believe is one of the owners.... More

Look, let me preface this with the fact that I've lived in Arabic countries for five of my twenty-eight years on this planet...I've had some really good Arabic food and some really bad Arabic food. This one doesn't really fall on either side of the fence, it's just okay. What's not okay is the price tag associate with the food.... More

I stopped in with a few friends in the late afternoon. We were the only ones in the restaurant for quite a while, which was a nice change from the hustle and bustle in the area. The food was fantastic, I had the sampler appetizer, which is more than plenty for a meal. I was thrilled that that had a... More

I have visited Sinbad's for over 10 years. I have always loved their food. I recommend the chicken swerma. They have beautiful indoor or outdoor seating with a feel like you're in a quaint town in the Middle East! I highly recommend.

Nice patio dining option, good food for a low price. Fast service. The lentil soup with lemon and strawberry drink were especially delicious.

Not prepared for a dinner rush. Haphazard service. Food was soso. Won't be back. Nice patio setting, but parties were getting up and leaving.
