A local friend took me here for dinner, and I'm glad she did! The food is tasty and fresh, the size huge (one falafel sandwich is more than enough!) and it's cheap!

Everything you find at sultan's market is beyond great. Fresh products. Well cooked. The meat is perfectly cooked and seasoned to the point where you can feel every ounce of spices. The taboulé is amazing. The pita tastes beyond what words could describe. Really if you're looking for a nice casual place to get middle eastern food to go or... More

The restaurant serves chicken and beef Schwarma which I did not taste. I rarher chose the vehetarian food and choses of salad. The Megadara (rice with lentiles), was not very fresh. The Falafel was very tasty, but with too much oil remains. The salad choise was good but some of the vegies were also not very fresh. Rhe Humus was... More

Of course I'm glad you enjoyed your meal, Mosh, but I'm a bit disappointed to hear we didn't quite wow you this time around. I do appreciate your candid feedback though, as it's important to know where we can improve. I know we can do better than this and I hope you'll visit us again so we can show you... More

We had chicken dinner and meat combo dinner. Portions were huge, none of us could eat it all. Place is small, just few tables. Good service, food was good but I've had better lebanese food before.

Thanks for checking us out, Michal. I'm glad our chicken dinner was a winner, but I'm disappointed we didn't knock your socks off this time. I hope you'll visit us again -- we want another crack at the title for best Middle Eastern food! All the best, Habibi's, Shadi More

If you like Middle Eastern food, Sultan's Market on North Clark is a must visit. Great prices PLUS BYOB! In addition to the already extensive menu there also is a beautiful salad bar with many, many fresh items including stuffed grape leaves and fresh mozzarella cheese. I had a baked spinach pie for an appetizer, which was really tasty and... More

BYOB and a chicken kebab? Sounds like you know how to make the most of your visits here, and I'm happy to see you're such a fan! Sorry about not having that corkscrew, but I hope it didn't put too much of a damper on your meal! Thanks again, Habibi's, Shadi More

This was my boyfriend's and my second visit and we found it just as amazing! This place was his first middle eastern food experience whereas I have enjoyed it for decades! The prices make this place an excellent value for the size of the lunch meals!

Wasn't busy, good food after a lot of indulgences and relatively cheap. Yummy lamb Schwarma. Free WiFi too

Glad you enjoyed that lamb shawarma, Vic -- in my own experience, there's no better way to end a night out than with some of our food. Big portions, cheap prices, and awesome flavors -- it'll always get the job done! Hope to see you again soon, Habibi's, Shadi More

Really happy to hear you had a chance to try both of our locations while here in Chicago -- although we're committed to serving the best food at both locations, our selection certainly does differ a bit!
