I have begun to lose track of the number of times we've been to this place, but they never fail to impress. We typically have the meza plates enough for however many we are (Taba Mazat Mushakkal on the menu) and after that share a main dish. There is also a great selection of cocktails, including several non-alcoholic ones, and though they are a little pricy, they are rather unique. Tonight we also had dessert: both the Muhallabieh bel Inab and the "oriental cake" were a perfect end to the meal.

The service is also always top notch. Tonight, we brought our four-month-old and when we needed to warm up his bottle of milk, they brought us a canister of hot water to do so and helped us set it up. Everything about the restaurant exudes class.

While there are a few I have still to try, I haven't yet been to a better restaurant in Cologne.

I work in Dearborn, Michigan so good Arabic food is easy to find. Al Salam did not disappoint. The service was amazing for our group of six. We just did appetizers all night and they all amazing.

Besides the fact that the whole crew is one of the nicest I know and care about their costumers, its even worth just going into the Restaurant, because the whole feeling of being in a Mediterranean area is accurate. If its the great food, delicious Cocktail or even just a tea, if you are in a big group, with your partner or just as a lone ranger, you will leave with a smile on your face

There are not many restaurants in the mid-range price level, which will let you taste the wines , in order to choose a bottle.
Attentive and polite staff. Tasty food.
