Most people are simply looking for, healthy food and friendly service when they go out. This is exactly what you'll find at Noura. Even if you are not very familiar with Middle Eastern food, you will find many things to enjoy on this menu. Everything is fresh and delicious, and served by people who really care. It's great to have... More

Fresh ingredients, authentic recipes, and the nicest owners you'll ever meet! Noura's Cafe has some of the best Middle Eastern food we've ever eaten. The stuffed squash, artichoke platter, rice and beans, and the tabbouleh, hummus, falafel sandwich are some of our favorites. Thanks, Raymond and Noura!

If you're hungry or have a hankering for some authentic Middle Eastern food, go to Noura Cafe on University & San Jose Blvds. You can order the best tabbouleh and hummus to eat in or take out. Try their falafel, lentil soup or amazing baked chicken. You won't leave hungry, and you'll become "a regular".

Started going to Noura's in Feb, first time trying Middle Eastern food. Amazed at the quality and craftsmanship in every meal. I also try to eat healthy and learned all meals are natural, locally sourced, and healthier than I expected. Now we use Noura's for catering all of our parties, events. I just order the special of the day and... More

I had the falafel platter with Hummus and Tabbouleh. It was amazing, the tabbouleh tasted so fresh. The hummus was the best I have ever tasted. The falafel was great as well. I have had several things on Noura's menu and I have never been disappointed. The food speaks for itself and Noura and Ray treat you like family.

The food here is amazing, always so fresh. The baba ganoush and the kibbeh are two of my favorites. This is truly authentic cuisine. It's not very close to me but totally worth a drive! They also have take out service and catering. Yummo!

I spent 5 days taking photos for their menu and was able to taste many of their menu items. My favorites were the grilled cheese pita with lentil soup and the freshly prepared fattoush salad with Lebanese seasoning, cucumbers, olive oil, and crispy pita chips. I was also able to meet the kitchen staff, very polite. All the meals are... More

We loved the fattoush salad with grilled chicken! And the service from the owner is great - we will be returning whenever in the area at lunchtime.

This place is great. This had to be the best customer service experience in the world. The food is fresh and made from scratch. There is also a grocery store with items like halva, date cookies, figs, fresh locally baked pitas. I had rice and beans and a chicken wrap with the side of house salad. Everything was great. I...

It was really busy on a weekday at lunch but the same service and attention to detail was present! The Lamb GYRO was spectacular and the sides great as well. Really enjoy the atmosphere and the "feel" of the restaurant. Look forward to returning and trying something else on the menu...
