Khoury's Mediterranean Restaurant
South Miami, FL 33143
Miami New Times' Description
Khoury's is a quiet Lebanese restaurant with a wood paneled interior that, thanks to some unbefitting vinyl booths, looks like it may have been converted from a fast food joint. And despite shy servers, flavorless hummus ($4.50), and super-citrusy tabbouleh ($5.25), it's got a few things going for it. It's one of few restaurants in the Sunset Place area that has a parking lot and a nice, breezy patio. Another huge plus is very-sesame-seedy tahini sauce ($1.50 for a small serving) served on the side of crisp, neat little balls of falafel ($4.25) and mixed in heavily with baba ghannouj ($4.75). It's also served on many of its sandwiches such as a savory shawarma sandwich ($6.75) that does lamb proud. Speaking of tasty meat, a kaftah kebab (despite a side of hummus) is tender, smoky, and splendid, as is a fried kibeh ($4.25) filled with minced beef, onion, and pine nuts. For a light dessert, try mini roses (2 for $2.50), a smaller version of baklava (which is also available for $4.50) sans pistachios.
Tips from foursquare
A little overpriced for dinner. Probably best for lunch with a variety of salads and sandwiches. The middle eastern platter is a great option and quite filling.
I go all the time and just order appetizers... The sampler 3 is awesome. Must order fried kibbeh
Kibi Naya is excellent! It is made fresh daily. The mint on the side is a must. You cannot find mint leaves as large as the ones at Khoury's!! The baklava for desert is pretty damn good! Great staff.
Try chicken kabab very nice
Excellent grape leaves. The lamb was disappointing. Very little flavor. Fine customer service.
