Khalil's has been Pittsburgh's leading Middle Eastern and Mediterranean restaurant since 1972. For local residents, Khalil's II presents a unique opportunity to "travel" to the Middle East: a full immersion into the sights, sounds, and tastes of Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Israel, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and the Gulf States.
The architecture and decor of the restaurant reproduce authentic scenes and the feel of a fine Middle Eastern mansion: ceramic tile, ornate chandeliers, tapestries, authentic arabic artifacts, and photographs and artwork depicting historic and legendary places and events.
It is not unusual to hear Syrian, Lebanese, Egyptian, and Libyan dialects spoken as many of the employees and wait staff have Middle Eastern backgrounds.
The restaurant also has a banquet room and is sometimes used for fundraising and other events.
Tuesday through Sunday, 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
The restaurant has its own parking lot.
