clean and delicious food. I think that they are basically quite serious about 'cleanliness' is what really makes their food fully halal.. most of the time, you see 'halal' written in front of other restaurants, but no attention is paid to cleanliness. Different from those places with fake halal claims, Saad is very serious about cleanliness..Also, friendly staff..

The food is great. You have a variety of halal dishes from American to Middle Eastern food. I love the cheese steaks and french fries. Also, the half of chickens platters and the bean pies!

We have been dining here for years and this remains one of our favorites in Philly. Friendly staff, good service, and a nice atmosphere made better by their "no cell phone" policy. My wife and daughter usually order the chicken maroush and I usually experiment with the different menu items. Centrally located, in a decent neighborhood, i recommend everyone try this place.

Looking for some halal delicious food. Dont go anywhere else saad halal is the best place to go. I have eaten in this restaurant for more than two years and i never had a complain. The plates are delicious half a chicken , kofta, shawarma, philly steak and my favourite is chicken marroush. This sandwich is epic : some chicken with garlic sauce tomatoe onion and you can add some hotbsauce to it on a very large baguette it wil definitely make your day! I advice you also to try the chicken wings very delicious and large . And in case you had a small wings the owner wil give usually an additional one. This place is owned by a family usually you will find saad there a very kind and honest guy. I totally recommend thiscplace!

This small restaurant is always crowded. They make great kabob, shawarma, felafel and other rolls. Yes, I have been to better middle-eastern restaurants (in California, Michigan and Houston) but in Philadelphia, this would among the best. I like the food quality. The prices are very affordable. The owner who is usually there in the back is extremely friendly - the way only middle-eastern can be. It is usually hard to find a sitting spot. The place is always filled with student and other health conscious folks. They are closed on Mondays as I remember. This is a must place to visit if you are looking for healthy low cal but tasty Labanese food - as they say "Prophets ate this food in the holy land"
