Has anyone tried Sinbad's on Belmont?

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this restaurant.

  1. It's fine. Not terrible, but certainly nothing distinctive.

    1. I go sometimes for a healthy (ish) bite after working out. It is a decent, fairly priced place to grab a bite. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there but if you are in the area, it is not a bad choice.

      1. Sinbad's is really mediocre.

        ZAD on Broadway at Barry is fantastic!!! It's in the vicinity.

          I second ZAD. They make one the best Shwarma's I've ever had (and I used to live in the Dearborn, MI. area. I know from Shwarma!)

            Also try the shwarma at Babylon on Damen just north of's seriously good!!! Many other noteworthy menu items too.

        2. Bleh.. go to sultan's market in Broadway & Deming

            Sultan's is decent and maybe a bit overrated. It's been hit or miss lately with the freshness and quality.

            ZAD is consistently very good.

          2. Sinbad's is good value- They give you a lot and it's relatively inexpensive. I like their tabouli, falafel, and kifte kabobs...they opened another outpost not too far away on Clark Street, just north of Century Mall. Even though there is space at both locations, I prefer take-out or delivery.

            I'm also a huge fan of ZAD- it's a step up and the best hummus and Shish Taouk Sandwich... The falalfel at ZAD is unremarkable

              I agree with the masses. I think it's pretty good, and fairly inexpensive. It didn't blow me away though.
