Almost directly across from the Grand Rapids Art Museum, Parsley has a distinct advantage as to location. All the dishes are assembled to order by a pleasant staff. My chicken shawarma wrap came in a very large whole wheat pita. Alas, it was unexpectedly tasteless. Inside needs a bit of sprucing up. We chose to take our tray outside as... More

I don't know where the place is on the restaurant list for Grand Rapids, but it is not high enough. The best place we ate downtown. Thanks Zaid and crew for the great food and the great hospitality. Family owned and operated and the kind of place you need to support. Get downtown and try it! Try the spicy rice... More

Very very good! I had the curry chicken bowl with white rice, it was spiced just right, I would get this again and again. The garlic sauce served with it is perfect. Fattoush salad was ordered and liked by someone else and the crushed lentil soup was also tasty. Chicken was sauté in a lemon flavor before being Grilled and... More

I am new to working in downtown GR. A coworker suggested grabbing a quick bite for lunch one day. We ended up at Parsley. I walk by it every day, and was curious to try it. I was surprised that it was not a full service restaurant, but that was fine. Makes for a fast lunch! I have not had... More

Upon entering, my friends and I were welcomed by the guy at the cash register. I knew exactly what I wanted so I went right ahead and ordered the shrimp kabob. The guy recommended me to make it into a combo with soup and salad for an extra fee. The wait was not long but however I have to comment... More

Inexpensive, friendly staff, awesome pitas, filling food, unpretentious, and did I mention the garlic sauce? Get it. You won't mind if your significant other won't kiss you, but if you do, just bring them some home with you. :)

Reasonably priced Mediterranean food in the downtown area. Casual setting, you need to queue up order and pay. Service is great when less crowded. Can get crowded at times. Food is decent, like their chicken wraps.

We used to come here on a regular basis when in Grand Rapids. SOMETHING has definitely changed, because this time the dishes we used to order, were no longer on the menu. I ordered a falafel "rice bowl" which was literally a bowl of PLAIN, white rice with falafel sitting on top. NO flavor, NO spices. The Grape Leaves seemed... More

Parsley is a casual dining and takeout Mediterranean/Middle Eastern restaurant. Handy for the Grand Rapids Art Museum (GRAM) and for Madcap Coffee. Walk up to the counter, order and pay, and your food will be ready within a few minutes. It's incredibly fresh and tasty and great value for money. I had the Veggie Combo Platter to go. It included... More

We stopped in for lunch during ArtPrize (7) for the first time. It was clean, staff was friendly, and our food was great. I got the Greek Chicken Wrap with hummus added (yum!!). It was large enough I could've saved half for later. Prices were good too!
