Byblos is a Middle Eastern and Mediterranean restaurant owned by brother and sister team Samir and Jamale Mirza. We opened our doors in Tempe Arizona in 1984 and have been delighting the community with our delicious cuisine for 30 years. 
The Mirza family have been restaurateurs for more than a quarter century and serve delicious Middle Eastern and Mediterranean food made from scratch.

​ It is a unique dining experience to be remembered!Byblos is also pleased to offer catering for all occasions including weddings and private parties. We are happy to prepare your order to go for those days you need a quick, but healthy and delicious, lunch or dinner. 
I recently was reminded of the wonderful experience I had at Byblos on my birthday two years ago, when my wife and a dear lady friend surprised me with a wonderful dinner here. We had a sampling of many of their best dishes and it was a memorable experience that I decided this Valentines Day to surprise my wife at the same restaurant. the owners are very genuine, warm people who serve each customer as if they were the most important visitor they have had. The food is delicious and exotic.  ~ James Their tomato soup is really good!! The dolma is good and the felafel was cooked well and was yum! plus the lady there is very very sweet!! :)) ~ Swetha I love this place. Their lamb is succulent. Plating is appealing to the eye. And the waiter made me feel like I was at home and a queen. The hummus with meat is excellent as well as their tomato bisque soup. Lamb shank with the rice and pine nuts is very good. I will keep going back.  ~ Kathy

An excellent place for family party with excellent food and service. We had chicken wings and those were superb. The soups were delicious and then add a drink to make it a perfect dinner. We will definitely visit this place again to enjoy our time there.  ~Rajesh
