“Pleaseant surprise for good Mediterranean food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Small, whole in the wall restaurant with outside seating. The food was marvelous. We had the dip mean #1, I think. I had the #3 plate - both were excellent. Best meal for the money the whole trip.

“Amazing, Healthy tasty food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

Love this place. Boyfriend and I visited San Fran and came across it one day when we were walking. Excellent value, really healthy and nice guy who works there. We often ordered the iron bowl soup - yum. Wish I knew the recipe. Its a welcome break from all the American diners. Lavash wraps excellent and all chicken, lamb and beef cooked perfectly.

“Fast, affordable mediterranean food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

The Baladie Cafe is my first stop each time I arrive in San Francisco. It's a short walk from the hotel. A lamb shawarma wrap, hummus, babaganoush, tabouleh, with other accompaniments (pita bread, olives, feta, tomato, cucumber) is the perfect remedy to a long day of traveling.
