    Excellent traditional Lebanese food. The lamb shank, homemade yogurt sauce, and rice were outstanding. Very good food, high quality. Their wine bottle prices were very good, and the selection was fair, but good enough for a nice meal. Family owned and run for over 30 years. A must visit if you want to support family businesses and get some great food!

    Wife, son and I. We shared two salads. The portions were sufficient for three of us, the ingredients, fresh and, overall, flavorful on the subtle side. We also shared a hummus plate with chicken shawarma on top. None of us had seen this direct combination in the past; normally they are separate. But it was classic shawarma and hummus. Sizeable portion sufficient for three of us to share along with the accompanying pita. For mains, my son and I had cubed lamb with rice. It was somewhat disappointing insofar as it was difficult to detect much in the way of middle eastern spicing, perhaps an unfortunate concession to northwest palates. It was also a bit on the chewy side. The rice was nothing special, though competently prepared; again without much added flavor. My wife had lamb shank. However, it came in a pile with no bone. It is literally the first time in decades of dining out, including middle eastern restaurants from Portland to San Francisco, that we had encountered lamb shank without the shank. And it was not a good difference. The bone contains flavorful marrow and seems to help the meat retain its flavor and juices. The waitperson claimed that most people prefer the meat without the bone. I am skeptical. If it is true, so much the loss for most people. I had a soda, wife had a glass of wine and son had a competent cocktail. With 15% tip, Service was timely and pleasant. The environment is quite nice. $160. It is questionable whether we will return to this restaurant. I had eaten at a take out place in New Orleans called Shawarma on The Run where, for $22, I had a significantly more flavorful and satisfying meal. Al Amin needs to reconsider both its scant menu and some of its preparations. The environment is there, but not the food, notwithstanding the puzzling rave reviews to the contrary.
