Finest Falafel I have ever tasted!

Went to this place as part of the Wicker Park and Buck Town food tour. It was great falafel. I would definitely go again.

Had the opportunity to check out Sultan's Market on a recent food tour in Chicago. We enjoyed a half portion of their falafel - it was HUGE and the best I had ever tasted. Super fresh ingredients, perfect seasonings...a delightful and satisfying experience! The decor is in keeping with the style of food...the only thing that would have heightened the... More

Anna, we're sorry to hear that you're not a huge fan of Mediterranean food, but we've proudly been serving our dishes here for quite a while. Though our food is most usually described as fresh and flavorful, it's disappointing to read that you felt otherwise. Ultimately, we'd love to welcome you back -- I'm certain we can change your mind!... More

I try to come here on every visit to Chicago. I typically order a dinner plate (as opposed to a sandwich) and get a small container from the salad bar. Add a drink, and the total comes to about $14. Cheap eats? Depends what you're looking for. If you only have $5 for lunch, try Subway or McD. This is... More

We arrived around 2:30 PM on a beautiful Saturday and we were very hungry. The variety is very nice but the food taste, what can I say? Not my cup of tea! The felafel tasted like hours old and so did the shawarma. None of us (we were 3 at the table) liked our food. The good reviews we saw... More

Maya, it's disappointing and surprising to read that you didn't enjoy our falafel -- most of our customers love coming by for everything we serve here, whether it be the falafel, shawarma, or salads. No matter what time of day you come by, we want you to love our food, so I hope you'll think about giving us another shot... More

This place had excellent food and excellent prices. Between 6 of us, we tried the lamb meal, lamb sandwich, meat pie, egg and cheese pie, spinach pie, and falafel. It was all very good. My cousin lives near the restaurant and the frequents it regularly, if I lived in Chicago I would also be a regular there.

I got the mixed meat plate. The lamb was a little dry but the chicken was moist and very well seasoned. The hummus was very good and the rice was moist and flavorful. This is a great place for a bargain meal in Wicker Park.

Quaint restaurant with helpful, pleasant employees. They were fast, polite, and efficient. The salad bar is extensive, and for 5.99/lb, it's a steal! Huge portions on all food, and the pricing was more than fair. I stumbled across this place by accident, but I guarantee I'll be returning on purpose. Cheers.

Sultan's is an unbelievable value. For $3.95 I got one of the best falafel sandwiches I've ever had. In a fresh pita, it was spread with hummus, stuffed with crispy creamy tasty falafels, and topped with a tomato, cucumber, tahini salad. My daughter got the lamb sandwich for $5.95. Also Amazing! We also tried quite a few of the little... More
