Best Mediteranean/Middle Eastern food in Savannah!

I'm from Michigan and am very familiar with Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food. Al Salaam serves tasty, fresh, non greasy authentic cuisine in a fun, quirky environment. On separate occasions, I've eaten the lamb gyros and the lamb gyro delight plate and both were excellent. The baba ghanoush is... read more

Our daughter who goes to school in Savannah introduced us to this small Middle Eastern neighborhood restaurant (and take-out). Everything is home-made and the hummus is one of the best we have ever had. I had a gyro salad and as the other reviewers noted, the meat was tender and delicious. The falafels were delicious and the pita warm and... More

Tender lamb, perfect stuffed-grape leaves, creamy hummus with a kick and fresh pita bread all prepared and cook right before you're served. The mouth-watering seasoned fries add a nice touch to your meal and the best part? You won't find a cheaper deal for such great Mediterranean/Middle-Eastern cuisine with such generous portions in town. I rated this place excellent because... More

Great food. Friendly people. Best gyros ever. Good hot food served quickly. Busy walk-in storefront-- nothing fancy, just reliable food.

I have always loved this place and my wife had never eaten a Gyro before, always scared of how it would taste. I promised her she wouldn't be disappointed and took her to Al Salaam, which was right around the corner from my house at the time. She's been hooked ever since. The meat is tender and delicious and the... More

To the unsuspecting tourist, one may miss this tiny storefront next to a laundromat on Habersham. Personally I'm okay with that because that means more gyros for me.

This is a great deli. The food is amazing and delicious. The Quran being recited in the background is melodic and peaceful. I will be back.

Today I bought two falafel wraps from Al Salaam Deli and was charged $14.00; the price listed on the menu was $4.99 each. When I pointed out the discrepancy, the owner / manager laughed and told me that the listed price was 5 years old! As for the food, it was middling at best, with the pita bread burnt round... More

I wanted to like this place and I was excited after reading the reviews. Unfortunately they fell flat on the expectations. The little place needs to be cleaned up so desperately and uncluttered with the junk it has piled up everywhere I wanted to pick up a mop myself. The food was average at best, gyro meat was ok but...

Both the falafel and gyros that we had we very good, staff was very friendly and service was fast. While our daughter was in school at SCAD she lived practically across the street so we got food from here a lot!
