The food is great and unique and very tasty. I've been coming here and getting takeout for a long time, from when they used to be on Greenwich Avenue. But they take FOREVER to serve you. When I call for takeout they say 20 minutes I show up in 20 minutes and often have to wait ANOTHER 20 minutes. As I said, the food is very, very good... but no food is worth that kind of service.

I ate at Salam about 2 years ago and remembered it to be fantastic. We went on a date because I found Salam on another site that suggested that it was one of the most romantic restaurants in NYC. Although the food was quite exquisite, especially the homeade hummus, the server was borderline rude, not really into being helpful at all. He would mope around the empty restaurant, kick chairs out of his way, and when he would bring utensils to our table, he actually dropped them in the middle of each of our plates - so much for presentation! We tried very hard to be nice, but he was so disinterested in serving his only customers, that we will need a very good excuse to go back to this place - which is only 2 blocks from our home.

We found this place from a vegetarian guide to NYC, and fell in love. It's got a really sultry atmosphere, with a morrocan flair. The first time we went, we had vegetarian appetizer sampler, which was delicious. They have a Casa beer from Casablaca that is really tasty. The wine is pretty good too. In our subsequent visits, we had the veg ouzi, which is like a pot pie in a phylo dough crust, and was spectacular. The veg curry is also great. Honestly, we've been thrilled with every visit here, and strongly recommend it.

This place must be one of the best kept secrets in lower Chelsea; it is a bit of a shame that I am sharing this with the world. The atmosphere is old style Middle Eastern, hanging iron lamps with ornate glass and candlelight, rich colors and textures, and comfortable seating for two or many more. The service is phenomenal, once a wine we requested was not in stock, so the waiter brought a special bottle out that was not on the menu for the same price. It was amazing, and I have not had a bad bottle yet. The wines range from Lebanese to Morrocan, and compliemtn each meal. As for the food, I find it best to order either (or both of) the vegetable or meat mezza (tapas) for newbies, it allows for a well-rounded example of the restaurant's amazing cuisine. There are great entrees to choose from as well. The prices are reasonable, and even the wine is priced well, since most are new world. Trust me, tryit out once, return many times.
