Loved the food, definitely a good value - we had lamb, beef, & chicken kabobs. All were very tasty, as well as the rice. We also had a lamb gyro, very tender and loved the sauce. My bf had some of the specialty coffee (forgot what it's called). He said it was very good. As far as service goes -... More

The gyros and chicken Shahar make are excellent. Great food for the price. Small hole in the wall location but really clean. His bakery next door is also excellent.

I have ordered carryout from several different Mediterranean locations in Louisville. But I think Alwatan is among the best. Their hummus, along with everything else on their menu is freshly prepared and authentic. I especially like their lamb gyros, which are large and generously proportioned... And their Tzatziki sauce is excellent - I always ask for extra sauce. Service is... More

My girlfriend and I go every Tuesday #alwatantuesday we live it so much. The falafel is the best you will have, yogurt salad to die for, and the pita is always fresh and soft which pair wonderfully with hummus and mutabil. Can't say enough good things about the food, and the staff is always very friendly.

Whenever I'm driving through I stop by the bakery to get fresh pita & get food for the family. The restaurant from inside is ok nothing too fancy. Food mixed grills is good. Chicken & beef shawarma in my opinion while semi good lacks the bold shawarma spice flavors. Salads and I have tried, regular salad (comes with meal), fatoush... More

The gyro is always great, they put a good bit of meat in it. The tzatiki sauce is wonderful as well. They probably have some of the best falafel i have had. Small place that does not look the best but the food is great! Dont judge the outside. Price is also great, around 6-7 for gyro, falafel and a... More

Good food not a whole lot of atmosphere. We came because of the reviews. Ordering was straight forward and easy good lunch specials. Quiet and clean and not exspensive at all. Will return.

Recent review in our local newspaper attracted us to this bright and airy restaurant in a small storefront. Service was good, food was delicious , and prices were great. I enjoyed a chicken gyro and a delicious Arabic salad. Great for a change of pace restaurant.

Thank willhh
