This is our favorite restaurant in all of Atlanta and we love it because the food is delicious and the customer service stands out for being very friendly, you feel at home. I will definitely keep ordering food for much longer.

Super delicious food and fast service! The staff, and the chef himself, are very welcoming and work with love. My family and I loved it here and came two days in a row during our stay in Atlanta. The meat is fresh and the lamb...chops were the best I have ever tried! Their falafel is spectacular and so is everything else. Their food is one of a kind! EXTREMELY RECOMMEND! 10/10More

My family chose Aviva based on the reviews and #1 rating. It is well deserved! The staff and owner are so friendly I felt like I was eating lunch with my friends. The soups are all wonderful. I had the seafood soup and tasted both...the chicken and lentil soups. My husband had lamb, one son had rosemary chicken and me and the other son had chicken shawarma. They offer chicken shawarma 3 ways. I chose the salad option and my son got the platter with 2 sides. Everything we ordered was amazingly good. I can’t say enough good things about this restaurant! It is the total package with outstanding service and delicious food. We will be back!More

My wife and I came here during our time in Atlanta and were blown away by how excellent the service was. We were allowed to try multiple samples from the different sides and desserts and everything was delicious. The creamy chicken soup, the tabouleh, the...baclava, the creamy tomato soup, chichen shawarma, all of it was delicious and best of all it is reasonably priced for good sized portions. Definitely coming here again.More

There is a reason people travel hours to get to this place. There will be a line. It will be worth it. Kameel is a wonderful man and his food is spectacular!

Great tasting vegan food and the owner knows me. This is my go-to place for lunch. I recommend them to others. We also hired them for my son's wedding.

Very welcoming place. Surprised it was inside of a mall. Owner served soup samples while his customers waited. Also handed dessert and showed everyone kindness and appreciation. Excellent food and service

The good reviews of the restaurant in Yelp and TripAdvisor is what took us to Aviva by Kameel. We had ordered the Rosemary Chicken, the grilled Salmon and veggies which were not only very delicious, but they were amazingly healthy too. However, what made the...lunch even more enjoyable was the amazing hospitality of Chef Kameel, the owner of the restaurant, who greeted us with a free sample of his quinoa-tomato soup while we were in the line waiting to order. Then he came back again while we were having lunch with a plate of hummus and pita bread to see how we were enjoying our lunch. Then he again sent another waiter with a plate full of fresh sweet strawberries for us to finish our lunch on a sweet note. I have never seen such warmth and generosity in any restaurant owner I have been to. I am so glad that we were able to have lunch there. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Atlanta downtown.More

Line forms early and I now know why! Wow! Trust the awesome reviews - it was SO GOOD. Met a friend for lunch and he told me about this place tucked away in the food court. Got there around 11:40am on a Tuesday - line...out the door. Left around 1pm. Line still out the door. Line moves pretty quickly and they handed out small cups of tomato, parmesan, basil soup to enjoy during the wait. Almost did not have time to finish my soup by the time we could order. Owner was walking around complimenting people and joking that you can only have 3 cups if you are driving Right before we reached the counter someone else offered us a sample of some blueberry treat. I ordered the Lamb Shawarma platter and the lamb was amazing!!!!! Shaved right there off the vertical rotisserie with tasty seasoned edges. Portions were plenty, sauces were flavorful. Once at the table, another person came around with plates of chopped up watermelon and fruit for us if we wanted it. This place is a friendly, well-oiled machine of mediterranean deliciousness. It is clear that it matters to them that we came in and they appreciated our business. The seating is also not crowded and the atmosphere is quiet so you can hear other talk over lunch. LOVED IT. LOVED IT.More

I'm sorry, but Aviva is a Monday-to Friday, 9 to 4 place located in a mall in a busy downtown working area. No Saturday or Sunday hours except on occasion, determined by the owner.
