Everything was excellent. And it was quiet enough so our group of 6 could hear each other. We questioned why it wasn't crowded. We can only figure that being one block off the main restuarant drive hurt it. We will be back!

Loved the ambiance..quaint and a bit romantic. The food was fabulous except for one of our dishes; the Chicken Tagine. The chicken was overcooked and dry but the sauce was delish. Two of us had the lamb shank which was a 10+. Fall off the bone and flavorful. The couscous was filled with potatoes, raisins and wonderful aromatic spices. We ordered the hummus platter and chicken livers for appetizers. All were great. Can't wait to go back !

Meat on Kebabs was tough. Ambiance was lacking (very simple decor, no music or entertainment). Restaurant was empty on a Saturday night, perhaps that was a sign?

We enjoyed experiencing Shabo’s. We reserved a table on Open Table and they had the table ready when we arrived. The restaurant was quiet, which we love! It’s nice to hear a conversation. We had the massive platter. All the meat was prepared as we had asked, very tender, and delicious. The couscous was great as well. Although the massive platter fed all five us just fine— I expected a little more for the price. Other than that, it was very good!

February 2, 2018, was our first time eating at Shabo’s. The food was great - a great change of pace from the everyday American cuisine. After recently completing the Master Cleanse, we were looking to eat as clean as possible and remembered Shabo’s! Had the lentil soup with the hummus platter as appetizers. Main courses were falafel platter, salmon platters, and an extra lentil soup (yes, it was just that good) with the Mediterranean salad. To wash it down, the homemade lemonade😊

6 of us had dinner there on a Saturday night. The menu is Egyptian, as is Shabo, the owner.
We ordered from their extensive menu and chose a variety of lamb, chicken and beef entrees. We ordered Cous Cous, which was delicious and ate saffron rice, as well as sweet potatoes, which in truth were the least appetizing. Shabo came to greet us toward the end of dinner and was very gracious. I hear their brunch is delicious so we plan to go back!

Decided to come here last minute for Mother’s Day dinner and enjoyed ourselves. All of the adults got the Chefs Special which included a lamb kebob, two sides, an appetizer and a glass of beer or wine for $25. It was a great deal and everything was delicious. The hummus and falafel were especially good, as were the couscous and salad and fries. I brought my kids who can be kind of picky but there are enough American dishes on the menu for kids or finicky adults. My son had the Philly Cheesesteak which he loved and a side portion of grilled lamb with fries was the perfect size for my 6-year-old for dinner. There are so many options in Hollywood but we enjoyed the food and thought it was a great deal for the price.

Really great place for delicious food. I loved the BBQ rib. It was a huge hunk of beef on the bone cooked slowly and flavor was unparalleled. The couscous was also delicious, cooked with rainsins and cashews. My only complaint, and it was a big problem for me, was that the phone kept ringing and it seemed like no one was answering. The waitress was very pleasant and the location ideal. Laid back, family friendly in a all-inclusive, old-world sort of way.

Was in search for a vegetarian menu. Used a Google search and came upon Shabo's. Service was good, food was pretty good, though one member of the party wasn't pleased with food choice, the waitress did take it back, asked if she wanted something else, and she was accommodated. The waitress could have been just a little more attentive. She had to be called over for more water (reason for 4 stars). She was very accommodating when our party went from 6 to 7, just a matter of adding another place setting. Parking was A little difficult to find, though there is a huge lot directly across from the restaurant, it didn't appear to be legit... no lighting, NO stalls, NO markings, though there was a parking attendant. I would definitely return and recommend to others.

We fell upon Shabos because other locations were packed. Immediately this has turned into a favorite. The food is incredibly authentic, delicious, high quality. At one point our table was silent because everyone was simply enjoying the food! We LOVED it. The tarjine meals were the best, and I've never liked baklava, but this was homemade. The mezza plate, hummus, lentil soup, kababs, etc, ALL excellent. I can't say enough good things. Casual enough for last minute and decorative enough for a special night out.

Our waitress Oksana was just wonderful, made us feel so welcoming and comfortable.

We went with friends and were seated at a table near the window. There was only one other table occupied so we received a lot of attention. We picked $19.99 dinner option which included a drink (wine or beer), appetizer and main dish. The food was prepared well and tasted very good, meat (choice of beef or lamb) was quite tender. The service was friendly and prompt. I recommend it as a casual dinner place for family or group.

We went out Saturday night for a casual dinner for 2. The review of the restaurant attracted my attention so I made reservations in advance. The restaurant was fairly quiet when we came in with a few tables already occupied. We were seated promptly. The table was quiet small and I should of asked for a bigger one so we did not feel as cramped. We have ordered quickly and the appetizers arrived right away. The babaganush was delicious and the portion generous. Falafel was very tasty as well. Lamb was tender and perfectly cooked. There was plenty of food. The restaurant became quite busy and I had to wave down the server to get our bill. The owner/cook came out and made rounds asking about the food which was a nice touch. I will go again but will make sure we are seated at a different table.
