The food is tasty and there is a great selection but the portions are a little small for me. I ordered the stuffed eggplant and I was still hungry.
Kurah is a neighborhood gem with authentic food that is healthy, fresh, and delicious. The full bar. wine list and friendly service makes for an enjoyable evening!
It's a nice neighborhood jewel! I enjoyed it and I would go back.
Lamb kebab meat was tough, fatty and over salted. Disappointing entree. Saffron rice and Jerusalem salad were great.
The service was very slow. I think we had a new staff person, but I also think that perhaps there were not enough staff to handle the outside area at lunch. The staff gave us the dinner menu, realized the error, and then took another 5 minutes to get us the correct menu.
The food was decent, but certainly not good enough at that price point. No attention to detail: vegetables were cut way too large to be able to eat, my salmon, which I requested medium rare, was overcooked.
Kurah was incredible! The GM was very personable and checked on us to ensure our food/experience was top notch. Their briyani and lamb kabob were delicious. Definitely eating here again!
Location was great, easy to find parking, and we were seated right away since we had a reservation. It was very stuffy inside as A/C did not appear to be working very well. Food was served on a plate that was too small so eating and cutting was a challenge. Presentation was average and portion was small. Overall we don’t plan a second visit.
Stay away from the steak omelette! It was overcooked, fatty and the potatoes that come with it are bland and looked overcooked and not appetizing (the presentation was pretty bad. I left most of my food and do not see myself returning.
We used to come here a lot but it has really gone down hill.. hummus was runny liquid, appetizers took 25 minutes, lamb was fatty and sauce too sweet. We ordered a glass of wine and received a 3oz pour for $11. Salad I normally get was different and dry. Not once did our waiter come by to see how things were, ask how we were doing. After staring at our half eaten meals for long enough (plates never removed or serviced ), we had to flag him down to get our check. Bummer, this used to be one of our favorite local places but seems like they are making changes for the worse.
We love Kurah. I’ve eaten here for dinner and lunch. The food is always great and it’s a neighborhood gem!
This most recent dining experience wasn’t quite at the level it usually is but only due to our server. She didn’t know what beer they had on tap which is strange.
Her excuse was that “the bartender would know more than me.” Well, why not take the opportunity to learn it? was my thought. Go ask the bartender what beer is on tap and write it down so you’ve got the list!
Our friend had to walk over from our table to the bar to do the research himself. Not a huge deal, but weird nonetheless.
Otherwise our food and drinks were great.
Falafel was overdone, almost couldn't cut it with a knife! Vegetables were tasteless. Wasn't asked if we wanted another drink and took a long time to get dessert.
Stuffed grapes combo! Awesome! Starters mezze platter also good! Worth a visit!
We got moved to a seat upstairs - which offered a nice ambiance! Perfect setting for Father’s Day!
Better than we expected. Food and ambience
Went here for Fathers Day brunch, and service was awful, even though, surprisingly, they were not busy that day. Ordered an unsweetened iced tea that was practically just water, then our order only came out about 40 min after we ordered and was partially cold, only when someone at the table asked where our food was. Had high hopes but wouldn’t go here again.
We appreciated the flexibility and graciousness the management and staff showed when three of the nine persons we have reserved for met with problems and could not make it to the dinner.
Food was excellent, the lamb burger especially. The waitstaff was very attentive. Overall great place to eat.
Wonderful place to meet for dinner.
Hospitable service with very good Mediterranean fare. Nice for a date. Great service from Malik and Jenny.
Good food overall. The grilled vegetables were a little charred, making them inedible.
Lovely spot with delicious food
Spectacular, as usual. Food, service and ambiance were all outstanding!
Took 35 minutes for appetizer to arrive. Felt like they forgot about us. Food was good. Super cute place. Enjoyed our seats.
Nice dining experience. The place was a little crowded for a Saturday but the service and wait times were fine. I lived the atmosphere. Food was delicious and portions were adequate. Glad I discovered this place.
The lamb shank was sweet & succulent.
Very accommodating staff. Environment is cozy and relaxing. Good place for intimate conversations or catching up with friends. The food was superb! We had gone in before the lunch menu was available but we were willing to wait- the staff helped us and we actually got our food mighty quick since they agreed to take the order before lunch hour (1100 onwards). The Baklava I had for dessert was excellent- not overpoweringly sweet, and very crunchy! Prices are great for the quality of food you’re getting. Staff was knowledgeable about their menu. Pita bread is made fresh and comes to your table nice and warm. Will definitely go back!
Love this place. I’ve gone four times with different small groups and it’s always a hit. Love the food. Lots to try on the menu...the lamb burger, lamb shank, kabob dinners, falafel, and hummus are great!
Great food. Good service.
This restaurant mainly serves whole platters, so do not expect any add-ons (i.e. a bowl of saffron rice) here. The plates were decently portioned and were healthy in some ways. Although the restaurant was a bit dark, and that the interior clashed with the post-modern exterior windows, the place was very inviting and calm for a Saturday evening. Service was slower than expected, as it took around 30 minutes to get my party's food. In addition, the first coffee I was given was very cold and did not taste great. This place is not good for families trying to budget as my party's total was well over $75. However, this place is decently priced for single individuals. I only came here to try a new style of food, but at the end of the day, I decided that this place was a one-and-done.
You could probably have an amazing meal with just the appetizers. Bacon wrapped dates were heavenly. Hummus, pita, olives, etc... were awesome. We got the large sampler platter for main course and it was not the same caliber as the appetizers, but still good. It could easily feed 3-4 people. The eggplant was a little over done and the meats were a little in the salty side for my personal taste, but still enjoyable. Service was great. Ambiance is nice. Overall enjoyable experience.
This is a very nice option if you’re looking for a pleasant, good value, good food restaurant in the south loop area. Never had a bad meal there and we’ve been there several times, after performing at Puanofirte.! All good.
I was so looking forward to this restaurant, but was a bit disappointed. The falafel was OK, but did not have enough tahini sauce. The kifta was not very good and the portion size were very small for the price. I don't think we will be back.
We tried a couple of the traditional appetizers, Dates Wrapped with Bacon, and Hummus, and both were very good and enough for four people to split. However, two of us are light eaters. The pita triangles were warm and had excellent texture. We ordered the Beef Shawarma, Lamb Shawarma and Shrimp with Rice. Two of us loved the Shrimp with Rice and Lamb Shawarma, one person liked the Beef Shawarma, and one liked the Shrimp with Rice. My husband and I will go back, but our friends probably will only try it again if we were the ones choosing the restaurant. Thus, my rating of 4 stars.
This was a birthday dinner for my father. The food was good, we’ve been here before, it’s actually one of our favorite places, we brought our dad here because we kept saying how good the food is. Ours was excellent but he ordered the lamb kebab, it was poor, hard and chewy. The main problem for which I’m giving it a 1 star is our waiter. If I would have paid the bill I would have definitely said something to him, he charged us 20% for group, I’ve never been taxed this high before not even at the Signature Room, and then he also said that his tip is too small and we have to leave another 20% extra. What? Is anyone aware of what the waiters do over there? Do all of them do that or just this one? How embarrassing Kurah! Not bringing my family and friends there anymore and will not recommend you anymore. Change your waiters! This is poor business etiquette!
Thank you for the review, I am so glad to hear that your father loves Kurah. It seems that there was a misunderstanding with your server. Our system puts an automatic gratuity of 18% on parties of 6 or more. There is no way the server can add a larger gratuity, unless you decided to give extra or add it on to the bill. If you feel that you have been overcharged in any way then please reach out to us so we can remedy the situation. Thank you! email@example.com
This was a second visit for my husband and me, a first for our friends. We had great service and thoroughly enjoyed the food.
Had a great time there with another couple and the staff didn’t rush us at all. Good food and service!
It was overall a good experience. We were quickly seated at a nice table. App and food were brought out in a timely manner as well. Serving sizes for the price were on the smaller side though. But the food was decent.
The service we had was excellent. We have always enjoyed our meals each time we have eaten at this Reataurant. Bacon and dates are great! Highly recommend this place - have eaten here several times and intend to return!
I love this restaurant -- the food, the ambience, and the staff are all great! It's my favorite place to go when visiting my son and daughter-in-law in the South Loop.
Overall the night was great would of given a 5 however I was not impressed with the lamb and had a really fatty piece of beef. Everything else was great!!
