“Not what I hoped for”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

We’d heard a lot about Saad’s and finally got around to going. Alas, we won’t rush back. The food was priced right, if you value large portion sizes; we had enough left over for supper at home the next night. But the food tasted just so-so. The chicken kabob chunks were large but dry. The rice was plentiful but bland. The tabouli was tasty, but the menu offers no real veggie side dishes. The potato salad was loaded with mayonnaise. For seating, you’re crammed into very tight chairs and tables, so it’s not a relaxing or easy-going meal.

“Best halal food in east coast”
Reviewed 2 November 2013 via mobile

I had a chance to eat here with friends in November, what a great place, I would say, best and most affordable halal food in east coast. One can get local food, but halal - great treat for all.. The environment is very good and clean... Highly recommended to everyone...

“quality food for less”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

I buy their chicken maroush on a regular basis. The ingredients are fresh and the taste is great. The white sauce is tasty but I find that a little too fatty so I ask for light. The lamb and falafel sandwiches are also very good

“Must eat here!!”
Reviewed 12 September 2013 via mobile

I came here 2 weeks ago, and had to come here again (2 hr drive) to satisfy my craving! The spices/tang of the sauce on the chicken maroosh is perfect and the cheesesteak is cooked to perfection. Top it off with the Turkish yogurt drink and aahhh..
Drawback is parking.
