Restaurant Salaam offers fine world cuisine, beers and wines in an exotic yet family-friendly atmosphere at 21 W. Washington Street, in the heart of uptown Athens, Ohio.
We accept reservations only for parties of five or more; call 740-594-3800. We're open Monday through Friday for lunch from 11:30 until 2, and open for dinner EVERY NIGHT from 5:30-9:30. And now, we're also open for brunch on Sundays from 10-2!
Our eclectic menu includes traditional and traditionally-inspired dishes from the Middle East, the Mediterranean, the Balkans, North Africa, Thailand, India and Pakistan, with a focus on fresh local foods.
Our dairy products, eggs, and much of our produce are locally raised; we bake our bread daily and prepare all our salad dressings, our falafel, and many of our desserts in-house at our family-owned restaurant. We have lots of vegetarian and vegan dishes on the menu and specials list, and use only naturally-raised chicken and sustainably harvested seafood. We have many gluten-free offerings as well; don't forget to ask your server for our special gluten-free menu.
There's always something at Restaurant Salaam for every budget. Our verision of Harira (a hearty vegan lentil and vegetable stew) served with our house-made bread is a great healthy meal for $5, and all of our wrap sandwiches are available at dinnertime too. Want to splurge a little? Our charbroiled lamb rib chops with Turkish pepper rub, or specials like our Thai green curry with scallops and shrimp, or perhaps a grilled duck breast with spicy mango chutney, make a great celebratory dinner.
Some of our specials are "spicy hot" but most of the items on our menu will appeal to those who want more mildly-spiced dishes, or who just want to enjoy an excellent char-grilled steak.
We do off-site and occasional on-site catering, for both large and small events. Visit our catering page for more information.
We hope to see you soon!
