We could not wait to get back to Salum and have Abraham 's wonderful dishes. Of course he was there and came right over to say "hello". As I have said in my previous review his rack of lamb is the best. This time we tried the pasta. We like to sit where we can see the chefs at work... More

If Abraham Salum had an identical twin who was also a chef we wouldn't be surprised! The secret to the success of this restaurant is no secret - the chef/owner is ever present both at his eponymous Salum and through the connecting kitchen next door to his other fine restaurant, the upscale Mexican one called Kamali. Moving through the tables... More

The chef here is great, and he's been putting out consistently great food for several years now. When I was there recently, I had a burger (not something I would usually order there, but decided to be different), and it was delicious! Cooked perfectly, beautifully seasoned, and perfect toppings with amazing choices. I hadn't had a burger this good in... More

We have been to almost all the good restaurants in Dallas and cannot say enought about Salum. Abraham Salum is one of the most wonderful chefs and restaurant owners we have ever met. He cares about his customers and takes time to stop at each table to make sure everything is great. His rack of lamb is delicious and not... More

We went with a group of 14. Our size party is usually a little overwhelming & intimidating to the wait staff, but not at Salum's. They were very attentive- impressive service! I love the contemporary decor & light fixtures. The food was delicious and the wine list was super. The House Salad is wonderful! My husband had the Drum &... More

The entire experience was great. Our table was ready just a few minutes after we arrived on a very busy evening. The hostess was very accommodating and our waiter was outstanding. The prix fixe offering was outstanding, particularly the filet and lobster tail entree. Owner/chef Abraham greeted us, as is his usual gesture with his guests. The ambience of Salum... More

We dined at this unusual location in a strip mall because of a friend's recommendation. The hostess was the weakest link in an otherwise outstanding evening. She couldn't figure out where to seat us after we turned down a two top at the entrance (we had had reservations for a week). Our waiter was welcoming and professional. I had a... More

Our supper at Salum was a wonderful experience all the way around. The "squid ink risotto" sounds terrible, but is the yummiest side (to the Pan Seared Scallops) that I can ever remember. The Lime and Sesame Seared Ahi Tuna was fantastic also. You tell by every detail that this is a "Chef's restaurant" where the Chef attends to every... More
