A word from Salam Restaurant
Whether grilled on a kebab, baked in a meat pie, or mixed with pine nuts and bulghur wheat as kibbeh, lamb is the cornerstone of the cuisine at Salam Café, where it excels in all its iterations. The menu is primarily Syrian and Lebanese, a sampling of which can be ordered as Maza, a complete meal of appetizers: standards like tabbouleh and falafel along with less traveled fare like white Syrian cheese and sfeeha, tasty pita pizza topped with cheese, vegetables, or ground lamb.Continued

- ALAPDined on 11/1/2014Salam has a private room very atmospheric and quiet and it was perfect for our group of 12.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- DrLeeVIPDined on 10/9/2014We hadn't eaten at Salam for quite a while, and it has changed a lot since then, refurbished, extensive menu, brighter space, less quirky/more solid, good food and service. It's another go-to restaurant on that block of 13th Street.Special Features:

- odaddyoDined on 7/10/2014I have been coming to Salam with my family since the early 90s. THe food is a delight kabobs, baba ganoush, falafel we love every bit of it. They catered to my sons when they became vegans. Lovely people and place .Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent FoodTonyMDined on 6/25/2014Attentive service, excellent middle eastern food with an interesting and tempting menu. Not your standard falafel place.Special Features:
- Uneven, but can be goodGrandmaVIPDined on 2/21/2014The knowledgable waiter helped. I wish I'd remembered to ask for a table against the wall (they were taken). Sitting at a table in the middle of the restaurant feels exposed and a bit unpleasant, but that said--the restaurant is quiet and the food acceptable. A better table would have felt more romantic. I do not recommend the deep fried onion appetizer, which although tasty (in a fast-food sort of way) was unacceptably greasy.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- What a treat!BobbyjiVIPDined on 2/18/2014This is a neighborhood gem of Middle Eastern delights. The food is exciting and fun Come one and all!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Middle-Eastern gem!Union60Dined on 1/18/2014Exceptional Middle-Eastern food (Syrian to be exact) at very reasonable prices. Although many items will be familiar (especially the appetizers), the tastes are invariably unusual. You won't be disappointed.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- disappointingRosyDined on 12/31/2013My chicken was dry and there was little of it, all rice. The crust faIR, BUT NOT TASTY. THE APRICOT PUDDING WAS THE BEST PART, SALAD FAIR.Special Features:
- Vibrant diningCatherineDined on 10/12/2013This was my first visit to Salam but it won't be my last. We had four different dishes and each one was excellent, exquisitely spiced and super tasty. The lentil soup was to die for, the chicken bastilla, lamb with coriander and the Macdool (spelling) were out of this world. One friend who never takes leftovers asked for the half bastilla she didn't eat, to be packed.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
