Oasis serves the best Mediterranean food I've ever eaten. It's our favorite restaurant in Lexington, and sometimes we drive from Corbin (90 miles) just to eat there. It's clean and comfortable and the service is excellent.

Went there Tuesday for quick bite and wanted something vegetarian as Lexington doesn't have too many choices for vege food.. Seated right away and it was pretty full already around 5.30 pm... Ordered falafel, Labneh with garlic and vegetarian lover.. It came with lentil soup and pita bread.. Soup was good but didn't like pita bread.. I really liked Labneh... More

Service was not that great. Not going... More

This is my favorite place to eat in Lexington. The prices are reasonable. The atmosphere is cozy. The hummus is delicious. The kababs are delicious. The chicken shawarma is delicious. The fattoush salad is delicious. I love Oasis!

The place is small and not particularly well decorated, but has a small family feel and great food. The service and prices are good and there isnt usually a long wait for a table. A lot of takeout orders from locals come in and go out quickly. The rice is simply but very flavorful, hummus, pitas, falafal, grape leaves, swarme,... More

Very good food. Great buffet. I love the clove tea here. If you get the dinner for two be prepared for so much food it lasts 2 more meals. Highly recommend.

We have been here for dinner twice in a month, and each time was delicious. Lots of food for not a lot of money. I had the chicken kabob pita wich-wich with garlic sauce and pickles. I love garlic, and this roasted garlic sauce was fantastic. My dinner companions ordered the veggie sampler. It consisted of dark rice, moussaka, falafel,... More

We went during lunch and got the buffet. Lots of different selections in the food over all was good. The owner/chef was very tentative to making sure the buffet was supplied. Neat little place in Chevy Chase. Would deathly go back again.

I had the chicken shawarma, which was a steal for $4 and the arabic salad, which was perfect! Service was friendly and very good.

This is one of those great one-of-a-kind restaurants were the food, service and value are all outstanding. It's a pretty good-sized place with 6 booths along one wall, six 4-top tables in the middle and banquette seating along the other wall with 6-8 tables. The booths were pretty busy but there was plenty of seating in the rest of the... More
