Staff was friendly and extremely attentive. Food was absolutely delicious and fresh!
Wonderful restaurant with delicious food and courteous and attentive waitresses. It was a bit loud though.
All in real good. Great menu and BYOB! All in real good. Great menu and BYOB!
The food was great and we enjoyed ourselves. The service is slow. Every time.
Excellent service and food. All social distancing protocols were followed.
The food is incredible. You can tell that every dish is made with care. I will be returning.
The food was absolutely delicious and the portion sizes were generous! The Muhamara, Hummus, and Kufta were incredible!!! Definitely check out this place!
We had no idea it’s BYOB until we sat down and asked for a drink menu! Our server referred us to the market wines liquor store in the next block (they should give 10% off to Saj patrons!) and the maitre’d at Saffron was awesome and took our cocktail order. It worked out fine and the food was great, I just wish we would’ve known that they don’t serve alcohol.
It’s very share friendly, great food. Especially the appetizers and bread.
Amazing food! The flavors were absolutely incredible. I went there for a business lunch, but will definitely be taking the wife back. Thank you, Saj!
Had really right hopes coming in, but the overall experience just didn’t live up to my expectations. I and the other two in my party order the chicken shawarma wrap. All of ours were dripping in grease, through the foil at that. It would not stop spilling oil. Never had a chicken shawarma wrap that was this oily before. I especially had high hopes for it since it was $16. The vegetarian dolmas was a little cold in some parts and tasted pretty subpar. The service was not very warm and attentive.
The food was delicious and the service very attentive. I will absolutely be returning.
Need a big party to share the large portions.
This meal was spectacular. Loved it.
Seating was comfortable and tables spaced for Covid separation. Staff were attentive and polite and answered menu questions well. We had three small plates, all of which were excellent, and we would recommend any of these small plates. We also had the shrimp and steak kebab along with the roasted vegetables. Again all were excellent along with the provided Nan bread. There was more food than we could manage, so we took the excess home. There was no bar, so we brought a bottle of wine, which we opened ourselves (no charge). We will return to this restaurant - there was also street parking nearby the restaurant.
Delicious food. Our waitress, Elijah was one of the best I've ever had. If you like Middle Eastern Cuisine (or even if you don't), it's a must try! Will definitely be going back - soon!
It was fantastic! Amazing food, great service, and prices on point! Also, loved the atmosphere!
Delicious and nice vibe! We got a few small plates, chicken shawarma and feta... everything was great! The bread served with the small plates is incredible. Its BYOB. So happy this place opened. I will definitely be going back!
I’ve been wanting to try Saj since it opened up. I took my girlfriend for her birthday dinner to try something new. The way the menu is designed it’s easy to get a little bit of everything. The beet root humus was amazing. And it’s also byob and noo cork fee!
Went for lunch and shared appetizer plates, chicken, and the most delicious bread. Very cute restaurant.
Both of the you g ladies that waited on us were very pleasant.
Delicious and quick service
Very impressed with the food here! We got 4 of the appetizer dips. Gyro, falafel, and fried haloumi for two of us and it was way too much food but we ate to the point of pain bc it was so good!
Fantastic restaurant! Nice little gem in Nola. We went with our two children and found it family friendly (early dinner). Bring your own booze...
We wanted to try something new so we decided to come here. One compliant of Open Table I have is they never mentioned it was BYOW. The place is very lively because of how small it is and waiting area has a great wall for pictures. Once seated we were provided a menu and they are really geared for small plates. The goat cheese, olive dip (forgot the name) and hummus were really good. The pita bread isn’t the traditional kind everyone gets; it is very thin and has a great taste. The chicken shawarma was a little on the chewy side. Not sure if it was previously frozen or not but the flavor was good. They were out of the grilled shrimp that evening so I’d have to guess that is the meal to get. We also ordered the gyro and it was about average in my opinion. All and all I’d probably go back for lunch if someone wanted to go but there are a lot of options around there.
I enjoyed my girls night out with a colleague when visiting Saj. The owner’s signature sauce options were paired very well with a classic white wine (BYOB) when we asked for recommendations. The staff was very friendly and patient because it was my first visit. The meals are a la carte style so I would recommend ordering two different meat selections and share a couple sides to enjoy the full menu . Outdoor and indoor seating is available and the decor for a great social media picture was the icing on the cake , along with the zen playlist and ambience. I hope this helps with your next date night or get together.
Good food & service!
The food did not come with anything, no veggies, no sides just a plate of chicken which was disappointing
Great food, really really good. Fresh and tasty. Get the house cheese. You won’t regret it.
Food was very good. The messes were different and tasty and the bread was quite unique. Lamb was high quality. Prices quite reasonable
Excellent food at reasonable prices
Great spot on Magazine St. Food and service are excellent. Its a bit loud, but everything else makes up for it. Finish your meal off with an ice cream baklava. Awesome!
Food was incredible. Really nice ambiance. I highly recommended this place.
Amazing food great service and awesome ambience!!
Great experience, food was great, staff was great.
Nice variety of Mediterranean dishes, all excellent. Service (Callie) was very attentive, and the prices are reasonable, especially with b.y.o.b. We look forward to our next visit!
Amazing food and wonderful atmosphere. Great service.
Great new restaurant in the Nola area if you like Mediterranean food. We ordered the Muhamara, dolmas, and chicken shawarma. We were impressed with all 3 and the Saj bread is incredible! We will be back!
Staff was very knowledgeable about food allergies. Great menu. We brought wine with us and they provided wine glasses and wine bucket. Definitely will be back.
Higj quality, tasty, great service.
