We had lamb Shish kebab, Humas, Falafal, and Gyros. Everyone loved their choices, were full with the portions given and the price was really reasonable. They even gave us Turkish candy after lunch.... More

My husband and I have eaten lunch at Aci Halal many times and also taken friends there. The food and service are always excellent but many items are cooked to order so it's not somewhere you can eat in 15 minutes. The lentil soup is outstanding, as is the shepherd salad. There are beef, chicken and lamb kebabs and my... More

Been going here for years. Not much to look at from the outside so fancy Sauconites won't even consider it but I'm telling you...this place is great. I can't believe people go down the street to one of the new horrible expensive restaurants near the ppl center. I have never regretted the trip here.

This restaurant/market is the real deal. Excellent food served in family-style quantities by an attentive staff. The tabouli was sooo fresh and the coconut cake for dessert was CRAZY good.
