Al Shami

An uber-friendly, uber-authentic taste of Syria in the heart of Rato

R. Alexandre Herculano 61B | 213 880 431 | 1250-012 Lisboa

Mon – Sat, 12h – 22h

Sit down and relax as all the delicious bites come trickling in from mouthwatering kibbeh and creamy hummus to crispy falafel, all expertly prepared and lovingly served by some of the friendliest servers in town. The restaurant staff bent over backward to ensure that our larger group of Atlas contributors was well taken care of once it was discovered their wine stock was depleted and allowed the party to bring our own to the table without any hesitation and numerous apologies.

We all opted for the sandwich menu and none were disappointed, including the vegetarians. The Maria and Makalei were table favorites and certainly got us wanting to return to try the rest of the varied menu. For an oasis of flavor in Largo do Rato, you shouldn’t miss this stop. Sahten!
