This was the perfect spot to rest, relax, and EAT! after a long day walking to the Golden Gate Bridge and back. The food was delicious (baba ganoush, chicken shawarma, lentil soup, baklava), the wine cheap ($6), and the atmosphere invitingly casual. In addition, the wifi was free. I am so glad that I had a meal here during my... More

First I have to say that shawarma is one of my favorite go to lunch foods. I have a go to place but today, I decided to try a different spot. I had heard about Palmyra and finally had the chance to go over. I had the recommended chicken shawarma wrap. This is a delicious balance of marinated rotisserie chicken,... More

We ordered on Grub hub...the lady did not want to take the order over the phone. Our order thru Grub hub came and it was the wrong order. I ordered Shwarma wrap and got shwarma plate. So that was disappointing that they could not even get an order right for delivery. The food was really nothing special- exception being the... More

Went to Palmyra with my dad and sisters. The menu had options for everyone, even those with dietary restrictions. The food came quickly. The owner and his family took time to talk with us. It was the most positive restaurant experience during our trip. Also, the baklava is a must! Definitely housemade!!! This meal was our most inexpensive and probably... More

The food is good, and less than $10 for most things on the menu. The service staff are incredibly warm and welcoming and very polite. I go regularly and the shwarma is always such a great stomach filler.

I must have went on a bad day. We dropped by, based on Yelp reviews, about 1:30 pm. Only 2 two tables had people finishing their food. No one else in line. We went to the cashier to order, but the man said that if we are eating there, they will come to us to take our order. Most of... More

The menu is chock-a-block with wonderful dishes. Their hummus is so creamy and tasty, and the dolmas are excellent. Every dish we tried was wonderful, especially the lamb. Enjoy!

Staying in Haight-Ashbury

Neighbourhood Profile
The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops. While the Summer of Love ended decades ago, Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through its streets can still feel like stepping back in time. A must-see neighbourhood for most music fans, it’s easy to see why these streets attracted the likes of the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. You’ll likely be content in The Haight day or night, just be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
