There have been a number of Middle Eastern restaurants at this address, including Al Amir, Tabouli and Saffron.  Now, the restaurant is Al Amir again, but it is called Arabesque  The pita bread as well as pizza crusts are homemade in a brick oven and delicious.  You'll find all the usual Middle Eastern dishes here. Wine is served.  Belly dancing on some nights. The food and service is very good.  So is the homemade gelato.
There is an Al Amir at 629 Main Street, Columbia SC 29201.
