This restaurant provided such an interesting menu and the specialties listed were delicious. The bread offered ahead of the dinner entrees was so good. We were just stopping in Athens for the night and feel we scores an excellent dinner at Restaurant Salaam.

It's warm and lovely, and the exotic aromas entice you the minute you walk through the door. The grilled lamb kebabs are amazing, and so is the grilled beet salad with chicken. The specials are great, too. Save some room for dessert, if you can. Yum!

Lunch for four was a delight and they were busy on Wednesday. We enjoyed hummus and baba gnoush prior to the meal and then the chicken wrap, lamb wrap, coconut chicken and grilled chicken beet salad. All ingredients were fresh and the spices etc. made for authentic turkish style cusine. There is no parking and the street parking is difficult. However the warm welcome of the staff and the food make a short walk a very small price to pay. This place is perfect for parents in town to entertain students at OU and their friends.

We dined at Restaurant Salaam (Athens OH) on a versy busy Saturday night. We needed to change our reservtion from 7 people to 10 people. The staff was so accommodating - moving tables and chairs, etc. Our server was at the top of his game, pleasant, knowledgeable and efficient. The food was very good and they have a nice wine list. We had a wonderful evening
with family and friends.

Tucked next to coffee shop in heart of downtown Athens this middle eastern/ Turkish restaurant is nice surprise. Restaurant was packed the night I visited. Many options on fairly large menu with 5-7 special entrees and 3-4 starters in addition to regular menu. Nice beer and wine list. Dining area interestingly decorated with Turkish kaftans, copper serving trays, tapestries.Food served relatively quickly was hot and tasty.
