“Authentic Arab food in the states”
Reviewed September 21, 2011

My family and I ate her for a little change of pace while we were in Louisville. It did not disappoint, i have had Arab food in multiple Middle eastern countries and i enjoyed the Shwarma here best. Im not a Falafal kind of guy, but my wife enjoyed them alot, and the kids had chicken shwarma sandwiches, that they ate all of. If we ever pass through again, we will def stop by.

“Overstuffed gyro.”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

I enjoyed the Lamb gyro lunch special today. For the mere pittance of $6.49 I received pita bread overflowing with tender and flavorful lamb gyro meat. The tzatziki sauce had a nice tang to it and the lettuce and tomato added a nice brightness to the rich lamb. A crispy order of fries and a Coca+Cola round out the combo. This meal could actually be split if 2 people tend toward eating a bit lighter than do I.

Alwatan is a definite little jewel on Klondike Ln. just off Hikes Ln. Along with the gyro they offer the normal suspects one would expect at a Middle Eastern/Mediterranean eatery and they do it well.

“Best falafel in town”
Reviewed July 8, 2008

A friend told me about this place and I had a hard time finding it but it was worth it, this is a great little restaurant. I have now been there at least a dozen times. Everything I have tried has been exceptional. Best bets are the falafel sandwich, hummus and the baba ganoush. They have tender grilled meats and the freshest pita in town.
