Tasty Mediterranean food, with a good variety for everyone. The hummus was excellent...so fresh! And the falafel was perfect. The server was so kind to our group and the food came promptly. Our group got an assortment of pita sandwiches and everyone was very happy with their meal. Nice, clean place to grab some healthy fresh Mediterranean food at a... More

I think the title of my review seriously says it all. There are other, more celebrated middle eastern joints right down the street, but I have got to say I think Dawali is just as good as them, for half the price. I don't think I've ever had a bad meal there, and I live in the area so I... More

This is not far from the Kedzie Brown line stop. The food here is good! This is the type of place to come with a group and sample a little bit of everything. It is not terribly fancy but it is sit down. The service is good and friendly but really come for the food! Everything tastes very fresh, you... More

My daughter took us here while we were in Chicago and it was so good that we went back again and tried some other dishes. All orders are cooked on order and the bread was almost too hot to handle. The dishes are well served and can be shared, especially after an appetizer. I can't really give any suggestion as... More

I live close to the 1625 N Halsted St location. Most of the restaurants in this area are overpriced due to the location near the Steppenwolf and Royal George Theaters (or maybe its the closeness to Alinea...) but this is the exception. You can get a lentil soup and lamb shish kebab sandwich for sub-$10. I love that meal. The... More

We had a groupon and decided to go here, parking is a pain in this area, so public transport is the way to go. It has a decent interior space with high ceilings. As we started ordering food, we realized how delicious it was. Everything was extremely fresh and really tasty. Seriously one of the best Mediterranean foods I have... More

Due to restaurants.com this is what lead us to this ethnic eatery. What a treat it was. A good neighborhood joint.

We had a wonderful experience eating at Dawali. Even though it is located in a strip mall and not full of atmosphere, there is plenty of natural light and it is clean and the staff is very attentive. One server had the entire place and she did an excellent job serving approximately six tables. We are lovers of Mediterranean food... More

Initially apprehensive about eating at this joint due to the location, we couldnt resist after the number of times we heard about the place. When we got there we were a little worried about the poor quality of the decor and it being in a strip mall.. but we went ahead and ordered a couple of starters and sandwiches.. The... More
