We love the menu - both Med and Indian food make for tasty combinations. Although busy (tables are a bit too close) the service was attentive and service was prompt. They have a surprisingly large choice of beers and other beverages. I appreciated the bottomless cup of good chai tea. Come and enjoy!

Being from New York I enjoy food and the variety of options. I was a little unimpressed that the two separate dishes at our table looked and tasted almost the same (except for spice it was the same dish). In regards to the Americanized I mean to say that the food is made so the public will except it rather... More

This is a great restaurant that delivers (via Uber Eats), has easy pickup, or large tables for big crowds. Very good size portions allowing everyone to eat family style and enjoy many different items. Their menu is expansive with hummus, dolmas to veggie samosas and delectable butter chicken. Do not miss the Naan - is comes out warm and is... More

Summary: This is a nice little spot to get Lebanese fare in the University District. The food is quite tasty, the service is good and the atmosphere is simple but comfortable. The prices are very reasonable and one of the better deals you will find in this neighborhood outside of fast food. Details: I was staying near UW and had... More

This restaurant is run by a lovely libanese couple and is definitely a jewel in the university district. The food was amazing, the prices are good and the atmosphere is very welcoming.

Nothing great but a good fix if your looking for some kind of Indian. Great naan and tandoori but lacking in taste / heat for vindaloo. Place is a bit unkempt and you get different people keep asking for your order. Not very coordinated in getting your meal (naan shows up 10 minutes before you get your meal).

Small restaurant, sits probably only about twenty. Good Indian food... falafel, gyros...quite a large selection, nothing fancy, but yum yum... In University District with I think outside seating on warmer days.

You would never guess this was an Indian restaurant from the name or from the frontage! Very good food at very reasonable prices. The place was packed!

Great neighborhood place by UW. Family run. Super friendly! The proprietress made me some tabouli fresh because they'd just run out. Great chicken dishes. If you're staying at any of the hotels on Roosevelt this is an easy (and safe) walk.

A friend recommended Cedar's for Indian food and we had a spectacular meal. The service was excellent and the portions of food were very generous. I will return if I'm in the area again!
