    Went for lunch on a Tuesday and were seated quickly as the restaurant was empty. Lowkey homey restaurant serving delicious Syrian food. I enjoyed everything we ordered.

    Hommus Halabi, Spicy Potatoes, and various Pita Sandwiches - tawook, kafta, and meat shawarma. When they say spicy, they mean spicy -- the spicy potatoes were HOT. The hommus was some of the best I've had -- I love the pepper oil/seasoning used. Kafta was cooked perfectly and seasoned well.

    Not your typical middle eastern restaurant. The flavors are familiar but better. Highly recommend. Will def be back to try more things on the menu.

    Only wish they put explanations next to the items on the menu!

    We loved this place.  The food was delicious, the salad very light and fresh, the humus smooth and rich.  All the meats were very flavorful, maybe the lamb was my favorite.  The falafel was crunchier than I'm used to, but with the garlic sauce very good.
    Ordered the platter for 4-5 (for 5 people) and we ended up leaving with 4 containers of leftovers.  Which was yum the next night.  Two meals for 1, crazy.
    Great service, nice people, so glad we went.

    This place is a great contrast to the myriad Lebanese restaurants in Dearborn and definitely worth checking out if you are just a little bored with the same menus of shawarma and hummus. Al Chabab offers Syrian cuisine that is distinctive for its interesting combination of sweet and sour elements. The menu features many of the familiar dishes offered by Lebanese restaurants in town, but they are all prepared a little differently than the Dearborn standards.

    For example, the fattoush salad has a very interesting sweet and sour vinaigrette, and the hummus is amazingly creamy and dusted with cumin. They feature several different types of kabobs that are spiced with traditional Syrian flavors including a very good cherry flavored kabob. They also feature regional specialties that you do not see very often like mansaf and fatteh. Al Chabab is a highly unique and worthwhile dining destination.

    I end up getting pretty much the same thing at all Middle Eastern restaurants. Salad and kafta. This time was no different. :)

    The good:
    - Friendly service

    Needs improvement:
    - The variety in the fattouch is good, but the dressing is so, so bland
    - The garlic paste is very weak, hardly seems like there is garlic in there
    - I asked for my kafta medium. There wasn't any red left in the meat at all. It was quite delicious, however, and I liked that it came with pickles.
    - Prices are slightly high

    It would have been helpful to know what some of the dishes were so i could have made an educated decision. goggle and the server couldn't tell me. She just said cherry kabob is good so i got that in stead of continuing to ask. The meat was good the pita was good the cherry sauce was tasty but was too sweet for my pallet. The salad was the bomb though.

    The environment is very local feeling, diner-ish as far as comfort.  there was a large family there with several small children which made it feel like a loud crazy thanksgiving.

    Id try it if you have someone there to help you order. It seemed super authentic and hand crafted.
