Poor Service, OK Food – I have eaten here a couple times. The last time was in 2008 and it was the last time. The food is decent, but not as good as other middle eastern places in Portland. If you live in the neighborhood and do not want to travel to one of the better restaurants, then it is worth it. The service was bad and terrible, including late food, the failure to bring dishes, ignoring empty water, and incorrect bills. I will not return.

bla – so yea if you need lebanese food just go to ya hala on stark near 82nd. infinitely better than anything you will find here. if you have no car and live near by it might be worth a shot since a few things are probably worth while. best of luck though. really nothing special.

Great food at a reasonable price – Everytime I've been here service has been great. Food has been good and I've never ordered anything I didn't like. The food arrives fast and hot. The hummus is tangy and creamy smooth. Yum! My favorite is the falafel sandwich with a green salad. The falafel is a bit spicy and the salad has just the right amount of garlic and lemon. If you want great Lebanese without all the pretense try Riyadh. You won't be disappointed.

Best Lebanese for your money in PDX – This restaurant is amazing for the value. Probably the best Lebanese for the money in town. The hummus is awesome and so are the falafel. Pretty much everything on the menu.
I wish they made their flatbreads from scratch, they get the same ones you can get at the grocery store in the bag. And I wish they had a soda fountain; when you order they bring you a can and a glass of ice. So no free refills.
But those complaints are pretty minor, i've never really been disappointed with this place, its great.

tasty inexpensive eats – We had a great mezza platter here tonight at a very reasonable price. The server was pleasant and seemed genuinely concerned with taking care of us and did a pretty good job even with a quite a few tables to tend to. I can't wait to go back here and try out the other items on the menu.

Rude Service; okay food – I love Middle Eastern food, but there are better options in Portland. The food is decent (however, unlike other ME restaurants, they do not make their own bread- who wants to eat microwaved pita bread with their hummus?). However, I found it a very unpleasant place to eat. The floors are white, which shows all the dirt and made the place feel dirty. The owner and the wait staff were very unwelcoming. Although the food was okay (although overpriced for the quanity), I left not wanting to return. I am not sure why all the positive reviews.

Pretty Average Food – After having eaten at several other middle easter places (like Ya Hala, Nicholas, Karams), I feel that the food is pretty average... and the portions that they serve is less.
I expected that atleast I can't go wrong with Baklava... that wasn't the case either.

Best Lebanese Food around, beats Ya Halla hands down! – We've been meaning to try this place every time we have gone by it. Well, we made a great choice! We typically go to Ya Halla, and the food is ok, the wait to get in is ridiculous!!! My Partner is vegetarian and really isn't all that impressed with what they have to offer at Ya Halla. Riyadh's has a TON of non-eggplant and vegetarian dishes. After going to Riyadh's we will definitely make this a regular spot! The food was outstanding, the lamb the best I've had and the other accompanying dishes were some of the best. Falafel can be hard to master and they've done a great job, spicy, moist and very good! There was no waiting, they had gr...  more>>

Best Midde Eastern – This is by far the best middle eastern food in the Portland area. It is high quality and authentic and YUMMY! The lentil soup is especially good. It is smoky, rich, complex and even at 3 times the price it would be a bargain. The people who run it are also very nice. I have never had any dish at Riyadh's that was not wonderful.
As many people have mentioned, the prices are amazingly low, however, the price is somewhat irrelevant in relation to the quality of the food. Even if the prices were much higher, I would still give it the same rating.
I have been to many other middle eastern places, and specifically Lebanese places, around the western United States and have found
