Sultan Restaurant, Atlanta GA
I am mystified why this lovely restaurant with really warm, good service is not filled to the brim every time I go. If you like very good Lebanese/Middle Eastern food, this is THE PLACE. Located on Roswell Road in the shopping center with a Chicago's Restaurant and a Tuesday Morning--just south of where Hammond Drive crosses Roswell Road, it is a true gem. I put them to the test by ordering kibbe naye (sp?) early on a Saturday for a Saturday dinner. Let's say it puts all other raw kibbes I've had to shame. Baba ghanouj? Two paws up. Kebabs? Two very enthusiastic paws up. The chicken kebab with the garlic sauce makes me enthusiastic about chicken again.
Oh, and order the new hot weather solution to drink: part lemonade, part water and part rose water, it acts like a tonic for whatever ails you. They also have fresh squeezed orange juice, for me better than any dessert.
I'd love to hear from others who have tried Sultan and see what they think. If you have not gone, by all means give it a try.
my wife works about right down the street from there and we have never been. we will have to go the next time we eat lunch.
thanks for the info
Good to know - thanks!
I've also heard that Lawrence's Lebanese restaurant on Buford (just south of N Druid) is good.
Are you kidding? This joint is nothing but a Lebaese Taco Bell. The food is tasteless and not presented very well. The atmosphere is less charming than the food court at the Perimeter Mall. Cedars used to be great. This incarnation is really bad./
