I visited this terrible and tax fraud place on 5th september 2011( labor day at 8:30 pm) . I and my husband got a combo for 39$ from travel zoo. I have filed a tax fraud to IRS for this restraunt. I want to inform everybody please do not visit this place if possible. We were charged randomly 7$ as tax and 18$ as SERVICE CHARGE. Total of 25$ ( the receipt was not valid, as they randomly wrote on loose piece of paper and handed to us and strictly told us to pay by cash. I want to make su...view morere you guy are aware before visiting this place. They were many student around the area, so I think they do not care as food was cheap.. I want to make sure we all fight against this. PLEASE DO NOT VISIT THIS PLACE. Moreover I ordered SPANAKOPITA ( spinach and cheese in puff pastry) which was microwaved. Food quality was worst and even 2 serves were total improffesional wearing some crazy clothes with hair loose open and not washed properly. Please do not visit. Please contact through email to ask more about it.view less

best kibbi ever

i had a great experience at cedars restaurant even this time on 03/22/2012. the food was delicious. i had some cup of vegetable soup which was so fresh. i also got an order of kibbi that i loved it. the best part of this restaurant is the the way that cedars family makes us feel; like home. i love this place because i always have a great and relaxing evening. love the service.

Delicious food & good service for an authentic experience

Cedars gave us great service even when they got very busy. The food was delicious too. The sampler appetizer platter has a great variety of samples to taste, with traditional hummus, olives, feta, etc... plus a special fish dip type thing too. My spinach & rice platter was delicious, and others in our party commented the lamb was very tasty. The baklava was warmed nicely with honey & a very nice texture. I am glad to know about this place.

We've eaten at Cedars for at least 10 years.

It's one of our favorite places to have really fresh, light healthful food. The service is exceptional-especially if you get one of the family members. The kibbi is one of those ""don't miss"" things. Good Lebanese wine list. Best of all try the Maza-a truly delicious way to try many wonderful dishes-like Lebanese tapas.

just a horrible experience

service was poor and slow, food wasnt very great. also, i think they own Fez Moroccan Restauant and Byblos - so dont go there either. The owners arent very nice, to their staff and to the customers. Save money and go somewhere else.

Best Middle Eastern Food in Philly

This is the best kept secret in Philadelphia. Their location makes it hard to find but once you do I guarantee you will go back. We have lived in Philly for a year and take all our guests here when they come in to town. The hummos with beef appetizer is amazing as well as the baba ganoush. The staff is very welcoming and makes you feel right at home. Dont forget to also order the fries and iced mint tea!!!

something different, best prices, good food

This is not up scale cuisine but it's a great place for lunch and for a feel good dinner.\r
The service is excellent. The food is very filling and quite good. You can't do better. Four of us had a terrific appetizer and a great dinner for under $50.\r
If you like wraps - go here. A world beyond Taco Bell or regular side street wraps. Nothing like their babaganoosh (sp?) or their shwarma (sp?) \r
It's just good.\r
This is the place to go to talk to your friends and enjoy a trul
...view morey pleasant evening.view less

Excellent Food and Service

Located on S 4th street right off South St. this friendly Lebanese/ Middle Eastern restaurant was a breath of fresh air. We walked in on a Sunday evening around 7pm to find the place pretty packed but were seated promptly. The setting was casual and the ambience nice, the muisc and decor were inviting and helped to set the mood. The service was excellent and very attentive but what really set this place apart from so many other of my dining experiences was the food, traditional Lebanes...view moree fair was the basis of the menu, lots of hot and cold appetizers, delicious Middle Eastern salads, Falafel's, pita, hummus, cucumber and yougurt, Shesh Kabobs, Chicken, Lamb and Beef. The desserts were out of this world too, what really knocked my socks off was the bill, granted, we only drank iced mint tea and no alcohol, it was very, very, affordable!view less
