Absolutely fabulous! Not a thing out of place: food was full of flavor, service was impeccable (my water was never lower than 1/3 empty), staff was friendly, and every surface was clean and well cared for. I can see why it was so busy tonight.

Oh my gosh! This place is unreal. All the food was cooked to perfection. You can taste the love in every bite. I had the mixed grill plate, with a side of eggplant burani, which was phenomenal to pair. Then we ordered 1 Baklava for the table, and everyone loved it so much, that we ordered another, and then another and then 1 more lol. Our waiter was a young man, that looked like a high schooler, he was wonderful! He was very kind and courteous, attentive and made us feel full review
I have really mixed feelings about Sameem. The first time I ever came here (Probably two years ago) I got the Qabelli Palau and fell in love. The lamb falls right off the bone, and the mountain of rice the lamb is served with is beautifully spiced. I've ordered this dish every time I've come to Sameem (Four times) and it's just as good every time. The problem is with every other dish I've gotten here. On all four of my visits I've ordered the Qabelli full review
