With all the unique dinning in Orlando it is always surprising when something new, something that is hugely popular everywhere else, hits the scene with bang in Central Florida. This year that something new is called Habibis.

The Creator of Habibis, Frank Ishraki, has brought his enormously successful casual Lebanese cuisine to Orlando with two distinct locations.

The MetroWest location is a Shawarma style restaurant which provides an escape from the everyday American fast food joints. When you arrive at Habibis MetroWest, our first location in Central Florida, you are hit with the smells and sights of a fine dining Lebanese restaurant. Yet you walk right up to the counter where you review a menu with prices starting at less than $5.00. Enjoy this quick casual Lebanese Restaurant focused on using finest ingredients.

For a more fine dining Lebanese food experience, we invite you to experience Habibi Lake Buena Vista. Our 2nd Orlando restaurant is right in the middle of the entertainment district area of Downtown Disney on Palm Parkway. From an extensive wine list, and homemade desserts, Habibi’s Lake Buena Vista Florida provides authenticate Lebanese dining in a comfortable authenticate way.

Whether you are familiar with great Lebanese food or want a first class introduction, Habibi USA and our two Central Florida locations offer locals and visitors a few options to consider. From quick casual MetroWest to a fine dining experience in Lake Buena Vista, our Lebanese food in Orlando will satisfy your craving for the finest food from the Mediterranean.

Frank Ishraki has really brought something unique to Orlando. “Our goal is to be the best Lebanese Mediterranean restaurants in Orlando.”

Frank was born and raised in Lebanon in the northern city of Tripoli in the lip of the Mediterranean Sea to middle class modest family. Due to the civil war in Lebanon, his family moved to Canada in the 80s. His parents taught him at a young age the value of hard work. After being in Canada at such a young age, he developed love for the Lebanese culture and food, and it has been his passion to share this culture with others and let them understand the value of culture, family and good food.

After he finished his education in Canada, he developed more passion for food and opened his first restaurant in down town Ottawa, called Le Mezze. After 10 years of very cold Ottawa winters, he decided to move to the sunshine of Central Florida to share his love of food. His first location in Metrowest called Habibi, shawarma style. His idea was to change how people eat: Quick, fresh, healthy products with amazing flavor.

Frank would like to thank his mother and father who taught him good morals, judgment and hard work, and ethic always goes a long way. He also wants to thank his wife Lily and son Miled for the sacrifices made for his dream to become a reality and for them being the foundation of his life.

Frank currently has several locations including his second restaurant located in Lake Buena Vista which features table service, fine wines, outside patio with hookah andspecial Lebanese events.

Cheers from Habibi! Live well, eat well.
