Great food, will be back, thanks for bringing this quality of food to Halifax! I've eaten at lots of Middle Eastern/Lebanese restaurants in Halifax, this is the best I've had so far!

Probably the nicest tasting Middle-Eastern food we've had in HRM. Fresh, well cooked and incredibly flavourful :) Will definitely return!!

The only thing I would say is I found the decor a bit dated and could be done better, but the food was so good that at the end of the day who cares what the place looks like!

We had two Groupons which were due to expire on the date we were using them. We understood that we could only use one at full value but wanted to use the other one for the amount we paid for it, $10.00, but the owner would not allow this. He also tried to tell a previous customer that their expired Groupon was only worth $6.00 not the $10.00 they paid for it. Not good for customer relationship, I will go back but just to use my $10.00 - and only because I am ticked off. Perhaps they should not participate in the Groupon program.

From Our Editors

Chef Abod Café & Catering's menu seems simple at first glance, brimming with Middle Eastern and Mediterranean comfort foods, but this familiarity belies the owner's ties to royalty. Armed with the experiences of training in Syria and running the kitchen of a four-star hotel in Bahrain, chef Abod Sadieh lent his culinary talents to Prince Moshal Bin Abdul Al-Azez of Saudi Arabia, serving as the prince's personal chef for more than two years.

Interestingly, though, this position didn't lead Chef Sadieh to devote the rest of his career to haute cuisine. Instead, he adopted an attitude as well as an unpretentious culinary style based on accommodation as opposed to ego.

Chef Sadieh adheres to this attitude in Halifax, where he creates hearty renditions of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean staples while incorporating locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. Dishes like chicken kebabs and moussaka demonstrate the menu's commitment to these regions' most iconic recipes, but lamb burgers and paninis filled with falafel incorporate those recipes' flavours into slightly more Westernized dishes.

The restaurant's dining area also fosters a comfortable ambiance, surrounding guests with homespun touches such as checkered tablecloths and portraits of moms. Burgundy curtains hang over the windows, contrasting with the room's pale green walls.
