The food at Sababa were incredibly fresh, cripsy and tasty. The prices were also greatly reasonable. The service was great and hospitable. The portions were a bit small and the only drawback was that the menu was not very diverse. The food options all were...More

Small menu but lots of choices. Their hummus is excellent. Very different character of texture and flavor then usual. The falafel is also different and delicious. The lamb/beef kabob is tasty but had very over cooked dry rice. The lamb shank is superb! Soft, moist...More

But it is sooo delicious. Light “salitim “ - little salads, fluffy homemade hummus, kebabs, and incredible fall-off-the bone lamb shanks. I’ve been there a half dozen times and was so full and satiated each time, I don’t even know what’s for dessert ! Maybe...More
