Great, healthy, inexpensive lunch – My husband and I try to go to Sabuddy at least once a week for lunch. The service is friendly and very quick, the owner is almost always there talking to the customers, it's clean and airy, and the food is delicious. The baba ghanouj, hummus, and lentil soup are all dense and rich and great with their pita bread. The meat in the shwarma sandwich is tender and flavorful, and their pounded-thin chicken schnitzel is juicy and perfect over fluffy rice, served with vegetables that remind me of Indian curry. Mint iced tea goes well with everything. The falafel sandwich is a little dry; I prefer the one at Saba's Mediterranean Cuisine on Bell Road, and the baklava doesn't really need the sauces with which it is served, but overall, this is way-above-average lunchtime fare. The new out-of-the-way, harder-to-find Scottsdale location is less busy than the old Tempe location, and that's a shame, because this place deserves to have lines out the door every day.
Quick service and kosher delights keep customers coming back to this Tempe deli. – In Short
Clueless about kosher? The staff is as sweet as the baklava--they'll happily coach new customers through a menu seasoned with fennel, paprika and lemon. The popular chunky chicken soup is made fresh every day, and the tahini-rich hummus always brings patrons back for more.
Good food - pushy (but prompt) service – The food is great. The best falafel sandwich I have found in the Phoenix area. If you know of a better one, I would be happy to try it! I did find they kept interrupting my wife and I talking, trying to sell us various items, bottled water, wine, dessert. But, a couple of firm "noes" and we were left to enjoy our sandwich. Enjoy them we did! We also sat outside which was nice.
Excellent dinner! – We just experienced our first meal at Sabuddy this evening and will definitely return in the near future. We both had specials of the evening and everything was delicious. The service was fabulous and the staff friendly and attentive.
