This low key little place has been a favorite of mine for several years for falafel, shwarma, hummus, and good simple lunches. If you like baba ganoush, this place has the best that I have ever had and I've tried it in many places around the world. The sauces are light and fresh. Try a yogurt drink in the small... More

My husband and I have to eat there at least once a week. The best in town by far. The owner is very friendly, service is great, and fast. My favorites are the gyro plate, chicken shwarma, and the falafel. I could eat it every day. Oh and the best rice I have ever had in my life, and I'm... More

I had lunch here with my Mom on a Saturday. We both had the beef and lamb plate. I was expecting chunks of each, but it was a ground mixture, like gyro meat. Very good - tasty and tender. It came with a nice salad and fries or saffron rice, which I recommend over the fries. There were also 2... More

Great food that you can feel comfortable eating. The restaurant consistently appears on the local news as a "Top Performer," which means they regularly get perfect scores on their health inspections. The chicken kabob plate with saffron rice is my personal favorite. The gyro and hummus are also very good.

We eat here every week ... literally ... and the food is always delicious, and fresh! Compared to the other Mediterranean restaurants in Lubbock, Manara is by far the best. The restaurant is always clean ... from the floors to the tables. The owner is very nice and accommodating with any special requests. The falafel sandwich, dolmas, saffron rice and... More
