“Simple, Delicious, Savory”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2010

Sham is understated from the street, wedged between an alleyway and a guitar shop, but it is quite a find. We ventured in during the Los Angeles Marathon for a bit of respite from the crowds and the surprisingly chilly weather. We found a cozy spot to watch the marathon finishers limp past and enjoyed a true feast of Mediterranean comfort foods. The spinach dish (simply called "spinach") was incredibly savory, loaded with well-cooked (not crunchy) garlic and served with a wedge of lemon. The tabouleh was fresh and delicious. The chicken shwarma was flavorful and juicy, and the accompanying garlic sauce was phenomenal. I wish we'd had the appetite to try more. We will definitely go back.

“I can't say enough GOOD”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2009

The Sham restaurant was wonderful. It is small and cozy.
We didn't know what to order, so we told them just to bring us what they thought we might like. Everything was wonderful. He even gave us a few complementary
dishes. Friendly, Friendly Friendly. Thanks to Sham
