Had lunch here, super friendly staff, absolutely fair prices and definitely a less expensive option.

Awesome place. Small low key and fantastic traditional food. Best tabule and kibbi I've had in a long time. Mo the owner and bartender is the nicest guy you will ever meet. Treats everyone like they are guests in his home. Can't wait to go back. Don't miss this gem.

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. The owner recommended for our size we just do chefs chice family style which I think is a standard menu they do for large groups. It was amazing. From the hummus, baba ganoush, flafel, tabouli starters,... More
