I had such a great time eating at Pyramids, a restaurant located at 758 Kapahulu Avenue in Honolulu, which offers a variety Middle Eastern food. Although there is lunch buffet, I had dinner at Pyramids. I hear there are Belly dancers during the evening too, but I did not see any when I went there, most likely because we arrived far too early for dinner.
The restaurant may also appear to be a small, hole in the wall when looking in from the outside. However, upon entering Pyramids, one may notice how spacious and unique the restaurant is inside. There are interesting pieces of art on the walls and a good amount of space inside too. It is clean inside and the servers are more than gracious, especially for those unfamiliar with Middle Eastern food.
For those of you intimidated by ethnic foods, you really should explore foods from around the world. You may find incredible dishes that you never considered and you'll also learn to appreciate foods from other cultures too.
I found a favorite at Pyramids. Baklava Walnut. I also had a chance to try a number of other Middle Eastern appetizers and entrees, all which I would gladly indulge in again. Here are some of the dishes available at Pyramids...
Most people can easily enjoy Middle Eastern food. The hard part is figuring out what you are eating, which I wish I could explain to you in more detail. For now, however, I hope these photos will suffice.
After you are done eating, your bill is placed into a beautiful box.
For the most part, I enjoyed the food, especially the dessert. I felt the restaurant was an interesting place to eat at and I look forward to trying my next Middle Eastern restaurant in the near future.
I hope you all have a chance to also try a restaurant outside of your comfort zone. We sometimes grow familiar with what we are used to eating, but why not give a new restaurant a try?
